Alfa Romeo has previously shown some plans for the development of a new 166 which will be known as the 169.
The new model is set to debut in 2010 and will share the current 159 / Brera platform. Currently, there is no evidence to support a change to RWD, an inline 4-cylinder and a premium V6 variant is expected to power the current FWD design, and also a new AWD setup is in the works. Full details are still yet to be confirmed, but rumours say that it’s possible a V8 supplied from Ferrari will support a hardcore performance variant.
A new V8 powered FWD much like the Lancia Thema 8.32V?
virtualcar.it have shown some rendered designs for the new model.
