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 3.0 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 body kit.
This example was registered new on 15th October 1990 and is the desirable phase one 12 valve model. Presented in very good condition throughout the Alfa is offered in red coachwork over a grey cloth interior and is fitted with upgraded split rim alloy wheels shod with new tyres that have covered circa 500 miles. The 164 looks superb and has clearly been looked after by its five owners from new. Reported to have always been dry stored in a heated garage and with no known faults the Alfa comes complete with a comprehensive history file including its most recent service undertaken in October 2023. Also accompanying the history file are previous MoT records, sundry bills, the UK registration document, and a current MoT test certificate valid until the back end of 2024. This wonderful example offered at no reserve is an opportunity not to be missed.
