Since November 1992 the Alfa Romeo 155 has been used by the Arme dei Carabinieri (Military Police Force). The Carabinieri did not select the T.Spark 2.0, but the slightly smaller but significantly cheaper T.Spark 1.8:
In addition the Carabinieri used some standard T.SPARK 1.8 MEDIA'92 for their senior representatives (autovetture di Servizio e di Rappresentanza).
In the early nineties the strategic plan to the Comando Generale of the Carabinieri was to have Nucleo Radiomobile (wireless) ready cars and to replace the entire existing fleet, carrying out a revolution, similar to the purchase of the Alfa Romeo Giulia in the late fifties.
The 155 had to replace the Alfa 90 and the Alfa 75 that had become obsolete. It was the natural technical-operational continuation of a range of fast cars with heavy operational commitments. A truly modern car with high engine speed (as always), strong (as always) and economic (for the first time).
In just five years (1992-1996) the Comando Generale ordered 3,483 vehicles, the highest figure ever for wireless cars.
The 155 Carabinieri is still in use.
Works original body colours for the Alfa Romeo 155 Carabinieri:
The radio number was fixed on the roof but from 1995 and onwards also at the back of the trunk.
