If you’re a fan of touring cars then brace your ears for a seriously heavy two-minute workout. Because this Alfa Romeo 156 revs to 9,000rpm and seems intent on breaking every wineglass within a ten-mile radius.
Video: Howling Alfa 156 revving to 9,000rpm
This 156 is the property of Diethard Sternad, and far from being the kind of owner who keeps his car tucked up in a warm, humidity regulated bag in a garage somewhere, he likes to get out and drive it as hard as he possibly can. Here he’s hustling his 975kg, 310PS (228kW), 2.0-litre monster up the Skradin Hillclimb in Croatia, and even though he’s in a saloon car and was competing against lighter, more purpose-built machines he still came home in third place overall. But considering he’s on three wheels on more than one occasion in this short video, should we really be surprised?
Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: Is this the best GT racing ever?
