zaradi te lepotice so mogli pravila v tekmovanju spremenit (ne spomnim se razreda)... konkurenca je bila predaleč zadaj
Veliko sreče pri projektu!!
Tale zadeva je tekmovala v ST prvenstvu poleg bmw,forda,renaulta,honda,opel/vaxhal,nissan itd... res da je bila zadeva dobra tega pa nebi vedel če so spreminjali pravila ker to je predhodnjik WTCC razreda. Sedel sem v vseh vozil sem se pa v Ford mondeotu ST Edina Alfa ki mi je bolj všeč je 155 DTM ko odpreš zadaj havbo in vidiš diferencjal notri
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
Te alfe so bile 4x4 ne ? Mogoče kdo ve kaj je bil razlog da so bile tako hitre ? oz kaj so psremenili v pravilih da so jih ustavli ?
sorry za OT
Mogoče kaj od tega:
While the basic shape of the street car had to be retained, the Alfa Corse engineers were given almost free reign for the rest. The absolute star of the DTM 155 was the drivetrain, which combined a high revving V6 engine with the newly developed Q4 four-wheel drive system. Displacing just 2.5 litre, the all alloy, Naturally Aspirated engine produced a staggering 400 bhp at 11500 rpm. That was as much as the SuperTurismo raced in 1992 and that had Turbocharged engine. The engine was mounted ahead of the front axle and the six-speed gearbox was fitted separately in the middle of the car for better weight balance. About a third of the power was sent to the front wheels with rest going to the rear.
To comply with the regulations the steel unitary chassis of the road going 155 was retained. All of the panels also looked 'stock' but they were all made from carbon fibre. Except for a wing on the rear deck all other aerodynamics had to be fitted below the height of the wheel hub. This resulted in deep side skirts and a very elaborate front bumper. It sported various ducts to channel air to the radiators and also created considerable downforce. The standard air-intakes in the grille were used to feed the six intake trumpets. Inside the car little reminded of the road car; the single seat was mounted virtually in the middle of the car alongside the gearbox.
Alfa Corse entered two 155 V6 TIs for works drivers Alessandro Nanini and Nicola Larini. Both of these Italians had previously raced in F1 and in 1992 were responsible for Alfa's domination in the Italian SuperTurismo championship From the start of the season it was obvious that the new Alfa Romeo was the creme of the crop. The main opposition came from the various Mercedes-Benz teams that campaigned a 190 E that was a development of car campaigned in the previous seasons. With 12 victories out of a possible 20, the Alfa Corse team dominated. Ten of these were won by Larini, who was crowned champion at the end of the season.
The crushing defeat inspired Mercedes-Benz / AMG to develop a brand new DTM racer based on the recently introduced C Class. A year later Opel also joined the fun with a Calibra DTM car. The Alfa Corse engineers also continued development of the 155. First the standard gearbox was replaced by a sequential 'box and eventually a F1-style paddle-operated semi-automatic gearbox was fitted. The engine was constantly worked on. In its final guise had a wider 90-degree V-angle and produced a staggering 490 bhp at 12,000 rpm. More subtle were the various adjustments to the aerodynamics over the years.
The 155 V6 TI was campaigned up to 1996 when the DTM was replaced by the newly created International Touring Car Championship (ITC). In 1994 the new Mercedes seemed to have the advantage but Alfa did manage to win a further 11 races. A more consistent performance from the Germans gave them the title. The 1995 version of the 155 suffered from an overkill in electronics, which in an Italian car is never a good thing. Now four seasons old, the considerably lighter and more powerful 155 once again rose to the top. In the second half of the year the Italian machine scored six consecutive victories against the more recent opposition.
At the end of the 1996 season Alfa Romeo and Opel announced their withdrawal from the ITC, which effectively killed off the series.
380hp/tono avtomobila pa mora že dobro letet, sploh v 90ih.
Drugače pa top of the top, najbrž ne bo nikoli več tako napeto razen če Alfo nabavi Volkswagen ki ima denar da jo povrne v high class motorsport, in tehnologijo da to naredi.
No pa še posnetek, kateri razkazuje veličino te znamke, ko je bila sama sebi konkurenca, ki je pod trenutnim vodstvom Fiata najbrž ne bo nikoli več videla:
Pa če se vrnemo nazaj na OnTOPIC, najbrž najbolj slavna dirka Alfe 156 v WTCC. Takrat že "močno zastarela" 156ka v Valenciji (čeprav so dirkalniki, pa vseeno razvojno 7-8 let oziroma celo generacijo starejši bolid, David proti Goliatom v obliki BMWjev, Seatov in Chevyev):

Seveda, leta 93 je bilo še marsikaj drugače ... Te Alfe so vozili "dirkači" Larini, Nannini, Daner itd. in ne elektronika! Situacije, ki so danes zelo redke, dirkači s toliko "jajci" da je jemalo dih. Cela Nemčija je spremljala ta DTM, doma smo preko satelitov spremljali te dvoboje Alf z Mercedesi, Opli, Bmw itd.!
Ah, romantični časi! O dirkah DTM se je takrat več govorilo kot o Formuli 1!
Tale 156 pa ne dvomim, da bo strupena, drugače ne more bit!
Alfa romeo 155 2.0TS Stroj, na katerem sem se učil vozit avto in ki je kasneje, ko sem naredil vozniški izpit postala moj prvi avto Uspesen projekt!
Se še spomnim menjavanja LMMmov,8 pregrešno dragih svečk,vendar pa odlične lege,ki je odpuščala zelo veliko napak,za FWD takrat zelo dober za sneg in odličnih sedežev:metalcLeta 1992,ko sem naredil izpit:-D
