1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Verde Quadrifoglio**Contact me at 440-339-4341**
This is my 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Quadrifoglio Verde 3.0 sedan with only 94,000 miles. This is a pretty rare car, s only about 800 of these were made and sent to the USA.
The Milano was Alfa's last RWD sedan sold in America. In Europe this car is known as the 75, elebrating Alfa Romeo's 75th anniversary. This is actually a transaxle car, s the transmission/differential and even the clutch are in the rear of the car to achieve a nearly perfect F/R weight balance.
The standard Milano had a sweet-sounding 2.5L V6 and was considered a very good performer. However, lfa saw fit to give us Americans something even better, he Verde model. This car uses a 3.0L all-aluminum V6 with a manual transmission, imited-slip rear differential, nboard rear disc brakes, orgeous factory Recaro sport seats among a whole host of upgrades. This was by far the top-of-the-line Alfa Romeo sold in the USA at the time. Unfortunately, he high price meant only a few hundred were sold.
This Milano Verde has an impressive (for 1988) list of luxury and technology equipment including power moonroof, BS brakes, eated seats, ower locks and windows, /C, tc.
The sound of the Busso Alfa V6 engine in this car has been described by Jeremy Clarkson as "pure opera". Personally, 'd rate a few inline-6 and flat-6 engines fairly high as well, ut regardless this is a beautiful-sounding engine.
The engine sound as well as the chassis balance, andling, eating position, teering, hifting, n fact nearly everything about this car was optimized for driving enjoyment and performance.
This particular example has been collector-owned for at least two decades. The car has always been garaged, nd has been well-kept and well-serviced. It has most recently had the alternator replaced, tarter rebuilt, arious wiring/gauges repaired and replaced, il changed and otherwise serviced and looked after by an Italian car specialty shop here in Ohio.
The previous owner recently rebuilt the engine with performance pistons, pgraded cams and rebuilt heads, ew timing belt, tc at a cost of over $4000. The exhaust was upgraded to an ANSA system as well, nd does not currently have catalytic converters fitted. The wheels are beautiful 16" Masitaly Italian wheels with very good tires.
The paint and body are very presentable and look quite nice. This car has zero exterior body rust- this is a super clean, ery well-preserved and nice condition exterior. The underside is completely clean and solid. The paint quality is very good, t carries normal and expected minor nicks, arks, nd other minor flaws, ut it looks very nice overall.
The interior of the car is in great shape. The Recaro seats have no wear or rips in the unique fabric. The carpets are in good condition and the plastics and upholstery are in good shape. The dash shows some very minor cracks and the headliner sags just a bit in the rear seat.
This car runs and drives very well. The engine, ransmission, uspension, teering, tc are working very well. This is a reliable and dependable car. All of the gauges are working properly and the car doesn't misbehave or give trouble. It holds temperature perfectly and shows great oil pressure.
This is a nearly 30-year-old Italian car so it isn't absolutely perfect of course. It has it's small faults and flaws including the following: the windshield is cracked, he rear power windows do not work, he ABS light is on, he hydraulic brake assist is sometimes less powerful than I'd expect and the vehicle monitoring display in the center console is nearly useless. There is no radio installed. The car is sold as-is with no warranty.
This is a very rare, ery fun and very unusual Italian sport sedan.
The title is clean and clear, eady to transfer.
