The Alfa Romeo models of the 1990s

The Italian car's 90s look at the Alfa Romeo brand: in 1989, Alfa sent the classic Spider on its last lap - as always with a longitudinally-mounted engine and a rear-wheel drive but without plastic spoilers. In 1993, in Arase, the last open-ended star of the Italians descended from the conveyor.

The Italian middle class: in 1992, Alfa Romeo launched the front-wheel drive 155. Faithful fans are shocked and set the model's predecessor 75 as"the ultimate real Alfa".

The Alfa 156 gives the tone of Alfa's design over the next decade, and de Silva is becoming one of the most sought after car designers. Alfa all'arrabbiata: in version 3.2 V6 GTA (since 2002) 156 has an impressive 250 hp!

Was the production stopped in 2007? The Alfa Romeo 166 was the last high-end Alfa car? Today, Alfa's flagship is a luxury SUV, Stelvio, and the time of the big limousines seems to have remained in the past.
