A Real Italian: 1997 Alfa Romeo 155 2.0 Twin Spark

I try to get excited about Alfa Romeo’s return to the US soil in 2016 with the Type 952 Guilia…but I’m not a huge fan of the car’s styling or soul. It drives more like a big Lexus than a sporty Euro-sedan and most are equipped with a ZF 8-speed auto…plus the price tags are enormous…so, I’ll wait until they’ve depreciated a few more years or decades. But if you need to scratch that Italian itch, you should consider an Alfa 155 –* one of the first of the Fiat shared platform cars produced after Fiat purchased Alfa and later merged with PSA to form STELLANTIS –(Portugese for the soul eater.) Find this 1997 Alfa Romeo 155 2.0 TwinSpark offered for $14,990 in Willow Grove, PA via twinbook sparketplace. Tip from Cory.
