ELEGANCE AND SPORTINESS
The new Alfa 166 conveys all the hallmarks of a true-blue Alfa Romeo personality from first glance. Practicality and elegance blend to form a unique package of beauty and power, where every detail is a pleasurable necessity and nothing is superfluous.
The triangular grille on the new front end, a symbol that identifies every Alfa Romeo at first glance, forms the fulcrum for two converging ribs that expand to suggest the power of the engine and then soar smoothly to embrace the whole car. The upper line of the grille extrapolates to the side air intakes and new headlights for extra dynamism. The light output is more than doubled by Bi-Xenon headlights. Flush bumpers blend into the car body. The spare, clean side conveys an impression of prestige and quality through the subtle, stylish use of chrome. The body features no sharp corners or edges. It is smooth and shapely with handles and side repeaters enfolded in the car body, and flush with it. The wheelarch bulges and the wheels themselves blend perfectly into the body shape. To the observerís eye, the car is strong, compact and glued to the ground, partly due to a sturdy horizontal axis from which the entire side appears to spring.
The specifications, Progression, Distinctive and TI, and a range of 10 colours, four of which are new, have been produced to meet the sophisticated, up-to-date tastes of those able to appreciate the greatest automotive exponent of sporting style.
