- For the car appearing in GT2, see Alfa Romeo 155 Touring Car.
The car appears to be the #8 driven by Nicola Larini, who achieved a 1st place finish in the 1993 DTM Driver's Championship.
"The champion machine that won 12 out of 20 races in high-performance DTM racing."
The DTM (Deutche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft) series allowed significant vehicle upgrades from 1993 to 1996, leading to DTM cars with a wide variety of electronic control devices like ABS, and traction control. The cars were laden with such high levels of technology that they were often referred to as "F1 in a box."
The Alfa Romeo 155 entered the DTM in 1993 and experienced success right off the bat, trouncing the formidable AMG Mercedes-Benz 190E to win its maiden race. It won 12 of 20 races that year, taking home both the Drivers' and Manufactures' Championships. This car, known as the 155 V6 TI, was built based on the 155 sedan that appeared in 1992. The 2.5-liter 60-degree V6 generated 414 BHP sent to all four wheels.
In 1995, the 155 adopted a 6-speed sequential paddle-shift semi-automatic, similar to those used by Formula 1 cars. But it wasn't enough to beat the up-and-coming Mercedes-Benz teams that year. In 1996, Alfa entered with a 90-degree V-type engine that put out 483 BHP. As a result, the 155 took ten wins in 26 races at 13 events, besting both Mercedes-Benz (seven wins) and Opel (nine wins). However, the 155 lagged behind in points and left without retaking the title. At the end of the season, the DTM series integrated with the ITC, and the DTM was gone, for a while.
