Sound & Beauty - The exquisite 9.000Rpm Alfa Romeo 156 Touring Car
Diethard Sternad and his spectacular FWD Italian Touring Car
Diethard Sternad is still racing his beautiful Alfa Romeo 156 Touring Car to this day and during the difficult 2020 year it was possible to watch the Austrian Racing driver at Skradin Hillclimb in Croatia showing just how fast this FWD machine still is, finishing as the Third Fastest Touring Car overall.
The 310Hp/8.750Rpm 2.0L Naturally Aspirated Monster is one of the fastest FWD machines in the Sport, with its low total weight of 975Kg helping a lot, alongside its X-trac 6-speed Sequential Gearbox. More than that it is also a proper Touring Car from the same mould of all the famous BTCC/ETCC machines from the late 90´s and early 2000´s, that marked pretty much the end of an era of NA, highly tuned, highly developed Touring Car racers that we will probably never see again...
