Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine With Alfa Romeo having been absorbed by Fiat in 1987 and the new cars being Fiat based, the parent company was keen to keep the Alfisti sweet and to use the marque’s sporting heritage to good effect. In 1992 the Alfa Romeo 155GTA appeared on Italian circuits, loosely based on the Q4 production model, and this was soon followed by the silhouette 155s for the DTM and later ITC and, with the growing adoption of the 2-litre supertouring class throughout Europe, a very successful FWD production based car was close behind. With the 155 being replaced by the 156 in 1997, so too the supertouring car was updated and carried on with a fair degree of success. Alfa also created a one make series for the smaller 147 model and modified versions of these Cup cars went on to race in various national championships. This very detailed history follows the story from the development of the original 155 GTA through to the swansong of the 156 in 2007 and there are plenty of photos and informative drawings to illustrate the story.
