Alfa Romeo are currently in their centenary year having being founded in 1910. They have a tradition of proud and loyal owners (Alfisti) and have a legendary racing heritage. Many people believe that any true car enthusiast or 'petrol head' only become so by owning their firsy Alfa Romeo. A proper drivers car. My Car and impressions: I have just become an Alfista with my recent purchase of the Alfa 166 3.0L 24v Sportronic. The V6 is the famous Alpha powerhouse that originated in a 2.5L displacement form but was bored out to a full 3.0L. The engine was eventually replaced as a fully rebuilt V6 in both 3.0L and 3.2L varieties. Sportronic ... Read the complete review

Many of you, like I did, probably think that a car like this is beyond your means - but not necessarily. You see the 166 depreciates heavily as soon as it leaves the forecourts but then rapidly slows down after the first year. I bought mine for only £11.5k! One of the best executives around. I only had it for a while but in that time I learnt of its smoothness and refinement. There's plenty of space and it just oozes quality. You could fit the Titanic in the boot and the cabin is well designed. It has the tendency to be unrelible - but who cares when you've got a car like this! One of the best in its class - a must for anyone who likes the ... Read the complete review

The 3.0 litre model does justice. Power, Style and Character. If you have the money, and need a big executive car, this is what to get. Never mind the BMW's or the Jags, this is true style. The scultping is fantastic, and easy going design, which still has a touch of sport within it. The interior is superb with an 6 inch LCD display screen, allowing you to customize the setup really easily. Change the climate control with a touch of a couple of buttons. Or change the CD in the 6 CD changer, positioned in the boot. Another great feature about the car, which is sometimes underrated in all cars are the ... Read the complete review

I echo the enthusiasm of the other two reviewers. This is, I imagine, one of the best combinations of luxury and oomph that can be bought for the price. Having only done less than 3000 miles on my 3-litre 6-speed manual version I haven't yet got the full benefit of the engine, but am already impressed and am looking forward to the time when it will have loosened up more. The various screens that one has to learn about take some getting used to, and at first a fair amount of time is spent just finding out how to work them. The fact that the screen is rather low down in the centre of the car means that one has to get accustomed to looking down leftwards and ... Read the complete review

I have worked for Fiat imports and got to drive most of the cars in the fleet. This car is just WOW. Take the best of the 156, Coupe, and Ferrari and its all here. The seles speed gear box just glides between gears, this lets you consentrate on control. Handling is a dream, even under heavy acceleration. Top speed is faster than they say, well we got 150 around the dock! This leads to avery good breaking system. All that F1 technology is not going to waste, they have put alot of it in here. If you want a fast exec, car with guts but it. ... Read the complete review
