Alfa Romeo 164 Proteo Concept
From Alfa Romeo press: At the core of Alfa's 1990s revival was the 156 (1997). This sporty saloon featured cutting edge technical contents (like high double-wishbone front suspension and common-rail diesel engines). It was sensationally successful on the market - was awarded Car of the Year in 1998 - and on international race tracks scored many wins in the Touring Car category. The 166 replaced the 164 in 1998, and in 2000 the 147 (also Car of the Year) replaced the 145.
The Alfa GT, a four-seat coupe, with a style concept reminiscent of the Giulietta Sprint, was introduced in the Autumn of 2003, while the 159 replaced the 156 in 2005, evolving its style and implementing new proportions, engine versions and body configurations.
