About This Model

The Alfa 164 was the pleasant result of a collaborative effort on the part of Alfa, Fiat, Lancia and Saab. The four makers shared a basic front-wheel-drive platform but each finished it with a unique body and engine lineup. The Alfa entry, which was launched in 1988, was the last of the four versions to enter the market and is usually considered the most attractive.

The Alfa 164 was the pleasant result of a collaborative effort on the part of Alfa, Fiat, Lancia and Saab. The four makers shared a basic front-wheel-drive platform but each finished it with a unique body and engine lineup. The Alfa entry, which was launched in 1988, was the last of the four versions to enter the market and is usually considered the most attractive.

With far more extensive use of anti-corrosion technology than any previous Alfa and good structural integrity achieved through computer-aided design, the 164 was a well built car. While Alfa was an independent company during 164 development, it became part of Fiat shortly before launch. The 164 fit in well with Fiat#39;s plans to make Alfa its up-market offering.

Designed by Pininfarina, the 164 featured a sleek wedge profile and a sculpted crease that extended from nose to tail. The result was a car that suggested rapid movement even at a standstill. When equipped with the 3-litre V-6, as all U.S. market cars were, rapid movement was indeed possible, with a top speed of 149 mph. European market versions were available with a 2-litre four that featured two spark plugs per cylinder and variable valve timing.

A turbo 2-litre was also offered as was a 2.5-litre turbodiesel. The top-of-the-line 3-litre V-6 premiered in both Europe and the U.S. with two valves per cylinder and 185 horsepower. Later versions were fitted with four-valve cylinder heads and produced 207 horsepower.

A five-speed manual trans was standard on most models, and a four-speed automatic was offered with the 3-litre V-6.

The 164 suspension was fully independent and utilized McPherson struts at all four corners with wishbones in front and transverse links in the rear. Four-wheel disc brakes were standard on all models, and ABS was available.

The 164 brought down the curtain for Alfa in North America, where a shortage of dealers and different emission and crash-test requirements made competition difficult. The car was offered in the U.S. from 1991 until 1995 and achieved only moderate success. However, the car sold quite well in Europe and continued in production until 1997.

More than 170,000 Alfa 164s were built during the car#39;s nine year tenure.
