1988 Alfa Romeo 75 2.0 TS 2.0 Twin Spark
A speedy beauty
The fuel tank was badly corroded at 200.000 km.
The flexible parts blew from the trans axle at 230.000 giving it a sound like a thunder when revving up to more than 4.000.
Alfa Romeo Control and warning system gave an occasional light show usually meaning every thing's just fine.
The car is relatively light and has 150 hp giving it the push of a rocket, but only at more than 4.500 rpm.
Road behavior is extremely good due to nice construction of trans axle (expensive for maintenance), with the right tires it sticks like glue to the road.
Exceptionally good looking car with old fashioned mean look (I admit this counts mainly for TS and V6 versions), it doesn't need these ridiculous "angry-eyebrows" you see these days for some cars (somehow mostly German brands)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
