Designed by the legendary Italian design house Italdesign Giugiaro, the 155 exuded a bold yet elegant demeanor, characterized by its sleek lines, aggressive stance, and aerodynamic profile.

The V6 variant, in particular, elevated the 155's appeal to enthusiasts and purists alike. Beneath its sculpted bonnet lay a potent 2.5-liter V6 engine, derived from Alfa Romeo's rich motorsport heritage. With its distinctive Alfa Romeo exhaust note, the V6 engine delivered an exhilarating driving experience, blending refined power delivery with responsive handling.

The V6 engine, mated to a smooth-shifting manual gearbox, churned out 163 horsepower, propelling the car from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 8 seconds. With a top speed exceeding 215 km/h, the 155 V6 was more than capable of holding its own on the open road or the racetrack.

What truly set the 155 V6 apart was its dynamic prowess. Thanks to a meticulously tuned suspension setup and precise steering, the car offered an engaging driving experience characterized by sharp turn-in and impeccable balance. Whether navigating winding mountain roads or carving through city streets, the 155 V6 instilled confidence in its driver, rewarding skilled handling with unmatched agility and poise.

It represents an era when performance cars were celebrated not just for their speed but for their soul-stirring connection between man and machine.

Moreover, the 155 V6's presence in motorsport further solidifies its iconic status. Throughout its production run, the 155 competed in various touring car championships, including the prestigious Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM). Its success on the track not only showcased Alfa Romeo's engineering prowess but also reinforced the car's reputation as a formidable competitor in motorsport circles.

Legacy and Influence

Although production of the Alfa Romeo 155 ceased in 1998, its legacy continues to resonate among automotive enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. The 155 V6 serves as a reminder of Alfa Romeo's commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance and design, inspiring future generations of automotive enthusiasts to pursue excellence and innovation.

Furthermore, the 1995 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 remains a sought-after classic among collectors, with pristine examples commanding considerable value on the market. Its timeless design, exhilarating performance, and rich heritage ensure that it will forever hold a place of honor in the annals of automotive history.

In conclusion, the 1995 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 represents the epitome of Italian automotive excellence—a harmonious blend of style, performance, and heritage. With its timeless design, exhilarating performance, and cultural significance, the 155 V6 stands as a testament to Alfa Romeo's unwavering commitment to crafting vehicles that stir the soul and captivate the imagination.


This car was first registered in October 1995 to its first owner Ralf Karl Heinz Schumacher, born on 30th of June 1975. The famous younger brother of Michael and successful F1 driver was the owner of this car as documented by the original German registration included in the sale.

Ralf Schumacher had improved his performances in 1995. He secured pole position and victory in the Macau Grand Prix and finished second in the Masters of Formula 3. In the German Formula Three series, Schumacher took three victories and finished second in the Championship, when he bought this Alfa Romeo 155 V6. For 1996 he secured a seat in the Formula Nippon Series. Schumacher won the series on his first attempt, becoming the first rookie driver to clinch the championship. In the same year, it was announced that Schumacher had signed a three-year contract to drive for the Jordan team.

Jordan's merch with Ralf Schumacher's name on it in the form of a travel bag and umbrella is still in the car and is part of the sale. On leaving for Japan in 1996, Schumacher put his car up for sale, which was purchased by its second owner, who is also the last registered owner of the car. The car was acquired a few years ago for a private collection where it was completely refurbished and regularly serviced.

The car is in absolutely full equipment, everything is electrically operated (windows, seats etc), the seats are in original black leather with Alfa Romeo crest.
