The Alfa Romeo 166 is an executive car produced between October 1998 and June 2007. The car was designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, under the control of Walter de Silva, and was facelifted in September 2003. 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 TS model used a five speed manual gearbox, whilst the 2.5 and 3.0 had the option of a Sportronic automatic gearbox.
This example is presented in silver with black leather interior and comes with automatic transmission, electric windows and climate controlled air conditioning. The electrically operated seats are heated and the car also has central locking and comes with an MoT certificate which expires in June 2019. A Japanese certificate validating the car’s mileage can be seen on file. Its 3.0 V6 engine is a delight and propels this popular saloon smoothly and in style. The car comes with a Japanese validation certificate verifying the mileage.
