SICA35A Slot.It Alfa Romeo 155 V6 DTM No. 7
The Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI is a racing car built to race in the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft) series in 1993. At that time the German Touring Car Championship was the peak of technology for touring car racing. The rules mandated cars with an engine displacement of 2.5 liters and 6 cylinders at most, derived from approved models and produced in at least 25,000 units. The rules allowed substantial changes to the car provided the external appearance and lines were maintained.
When Alfa Romeo introduced the 420 bhp, 4-wheel drive 155, the more conventional rear-wheel drive Mercedes 190 couldn't match the Alfa's performance. In 1993, the Italian car dominated the category, winning 12 races out of 20 with its two factory drivers thus winning both the drivers and constructors titles. To date, the Alfa Romeo 155 is the only non-German car to have won a DTM championship.
This Slot.It model reproduces the factory works #7 that raced on the legendary Nordschleife circuit. This car was driven by F1 driver Alessandro Nannini.
