Alfa 75 - 3

Alfa 75 Milano
1987 Alfa Romeo Milano Verde

The Alfa Romeo Milano sedans are considered by some to be the last "true" Alfa Romeo (i.e., rear-wheel drive). There were four models of the Milano produced from 1987 to 1989: three 2.5 liter versions (Silver, Gold, Platinum), and the 3.0 liter version (Verde, for the green Quadrifoglio emblem).
In a European Car review, the Alfa Romeo Milano Verde was compared favorably to the Porsche 944 for performance:

0-60 in 7.7 seconds
Top speed: 136 mph
Fuel economy: 21.9 mpg city / 35 mpg highway

Standard features on the Milano Verde model include: power steering, ABS, Recaro interior (including heated driver's seat), headlight washers, front and rear foglights (rear are known as the "afterburners"), and a taller 3.55 ratio transaxle (vs 4.11 for the other models).
The Milano Verde model can be spotted immediately, and is differentiated from the Silver, Gold and Platinum models, due to the fender flares, side skirts, and rear deck spoiler. And, of course, the Quadrifoglio badge on the rear (only affixed to the highest performance models of all Alfa Romeos).
