This 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Verde V6 Can Help You Earn Your Petrolhead Stripes

If you’re wondering why this Alfa Romeo 75 is getting auctioned off under a different name, well that’s because you probably didn’t know that in North America, it was sold under the Milano moniker.

What makes this particular 1988 model interesting is the fact that it’s the Milano Verde version, which means power comes from a sonorous, 185 HP (188 PS) 3.0-liter V6 engine. With the aid of a 5-speed manual gearbox, the Milano Verde could hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 7.7 seconds.

In terms of looks, the car boasts a red exterior with black trim, and according to the Bring a Trailer ad, the stock fender flares were removed under previous ownership. It also comes with its European-market grille, headlights, marker lights and bumpers, while the rear reflector panel and deck lid badge have been replaced.

Also new (or rather rebuilt) is the steering rack, while suspension mods include 27 mm torsion bars with matching front sway bar and Bilstein dampers (front and rear). The wheels meanwhile measure 15-inches in diameter and are wrapped in Hankook Ventus tires.

Inside, this blast from the past comes with charcoal cloth front bucket seats, a sunroof, an aftermarket stereo system and power windows. The seller chose to add a shortened shift lever while also reinstalling the sunroof drain tray to fix a leak.

While we can’t know for certain how much power this Alfa makes today, the 3.0-liter V6 engine was rebuilt, which is usually a good thing on an old car with 168,000 miles (270,000 km) on the clock. Furthermore, the rear-mounted five-speed transaxle was sourced from a Milano Platinum and boasts a limited-slip differential with near 100% lock as per the seller.

So even though this may not be the quickest thing on the road, it should be pretty fun to drive, most of the time. All that said, how much would you be willing to offer to get this V6 Alfa?
