The Alfa Romeo 164’s launch represented the beginning of the renaissance of its maker. It was a member of the Type Four project, which resulted in four cars from Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat and Saab, all sharing the same floorpan. Of all the Type Fours, the Pininfarina styled Alfa 164 was by far the prettiest. The glorious Busso three-Litre V6 was used in the 164 and meant that it possessed the most charismatic engine in the class. The sharp Pininfarina styling also helped to differentiate the Alfa Romeo from its cousins and the V6 could be ordered with a Veloce bodykit.
Finished in red with contrasting maroon leather interior, this is a wonderful example of the very desirable last generation 164 fitted with chrome trimmings.
This one owner car has travelled a mere 74,000 miles from new, equipped with its powerful V6 – 2 litre turbo, we are informed it is very nice to drive and ready to be enjoyed. Considered to be part of the ever appreciating ‘modern classics’ market and a great investment opportunity.
