Alfa Romeo 159

The Alfa Romeo 159 designed by Italdesign Giugiaro.

Vehicle Overview

The Alfa Romeo 159, introduced in early 2005, stands as a direct successor to the revered 156 in the Alfa Romeo lineup. Its nomenclature pays homage to the Formula 1 single-seater that clinched the 1951 World Championship under the skilled hands of Juan Manuel Fangio. Crafted by the renowned Italdesign Giugiaro and manufactured at the Pomigliano d’Arco plants, the 159, and the Sportwagon, seamlessly incorporates the familial design language first seen in the Brera coupé, sharing the same platform. The vehicle’s name isn’t just a nod to its racing lineage but reflects a commitment to excellence and performance, echoing the spirit of the iconic Formula 1 champion. This connection to motorsport history adds an extra layer of allure for enthusiasts and those who appreciate the brand’s rich heritage. The Alfa Romeo 159 maintained its position in the brand’s portfolio until June 2013, making a notable mark in the automotive landscape. Interestingly, it underwent a metamorphosis, emerging as the Sportwagon variant from 2006 to 2011, catering to those seeking a blend of style and practicality. Even after its departure from the production line, the 159 left an indelible mark on the hearts of Alfa Romeo aficionados. Remarkably, the 159 did not witness an immediate successor in the Alfa Romeo lineup. However, in 2016, the baton was passed to the Alfa Romeo Giulia, which stepped into the spotlight, inheriting the legacy of its predecessor. The Giulia not only continued the brand’s commitment to performance and style but also introduced a new chapter in Alfa Romeo’s storied history. In summary, the Alfa Romeo 159, with its tribute to a Formula 1 champion, timeless design, and a production span until 2013, remains an emblematic chapter in Alfa Romeo’s heritage, paving the way for the next generation of exceptional vehicles, including the Alfa Romeo Giulia that would eventually succeed it.
