1999 ALFA Romeo 166 specs, Engine size 2000cm3, Fuel type Gasoline, Drive wheels FF, Transmission Gearbox Manual
The 166 was the replacement for the Alfa Romeo 164, and although the 164 had styling which was far from orthodox, the 166 with its drooping headlamps and pointed nose still raised many eyebrows. The styling was very much in keeping with Alfa's corporate style of the time, which had begun with the smaller 156 model.
The car was initially available with a 2.0-litre Twin Spark (155PS), a 2.5 V6 (190PS), a 3.0 V6 (226PS) or a V6 2.0 Turbo (205PS) petrol engine. Diesel engines were an L5 2.4 10v common rail turbodiesel version with 136, 140 and 150PS output, praised for its refinement. The TS model used a 5-speed manual gearbox, whilst the 2.5 and 3.0 had the option of a Sportronic automatic gearbox. The 3.0 V6, L5 2.4 and V6 Turbo were otherwise supplied with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The top models were named "Super" and included MOMO leather interior, 17" alloy wheels, rain sensitive wipers, cruise control, climate control and ICS (Integrated Control System) with colour screen. Options included xenon headlamps, GSM connectivity and satellite navigation. Suspension systems comprised double wishbones at the front and a multi-link setup for the rear.
