Widely viewed as the most spectacular and exciting manifestation of the 1990s touring car boom, the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) was blessed with star drivers, significant manufacturer involvement and, crucially, excellent promotion.

In 1993, the series adopted the Class 1 FIA ruleset, which permitted the development of high-revving, multi-cylinder engines, advanced four-wheel-drive systems and outrageous-yet-aerodynamically efficient silhouette bodywork. Such technical latitude was instrumental in Alfa Romeos decision to join the series with its stunning 2.5-litre, V6-powered, four-wheel-drive 155 V6 TI model. Remarkably, the marques new charge took 14 wins in its debut year and defeated the rival Works-backed AMG-Mercedes and Joest-Opel teams to secure the 1993 title in the hands of Nicola Larini.

Alfa Romeo returned to the series in 1994; its principal Alfa Corse squad was supported once again by the three-car, semi-Works Schbel Engineering team. Although benefitting from significant technical improvements including a new Kelsey-Hayes ABS system and Active Suspension Alfa Romeos campaign was blighted by poor reliability; Mercedes-Benz securing the 1994 title courtesy of Klaus Ludwig, with Larini no better than 3rd in the final standings.

The spectacular example offered here is one of just 10 examples of the 1994-specification car constructed by Alfa Corse, and one of the three cars campaigned by Schbel. Driven exclusively by Grand Prix veteran Christian Danner, it secured no fewer than 14 points-scoring finishes, including two superb 2nd-placed finishes at Mays Nrburgring Eifelrennen round. An eventual 9th place in the 1994 DTM standings was further supplemented by a 3rd-placed finish in the first of two non-Championship races in Mugello, Italy.

In 1995, this car passed into the hands of the Arese-based Euroteam squad, for whom Danners Formula 1 contemporary Stefano Modena piloted it in the first four races of that years DTM. Appropriately, the cars competitive career concluded on a high note, with a 5th and a 2nd at Avus in early May; the car returning to Alfa Corse for display purposes thereafter.

In 2017, the car was subjected to an exacting bare metal restoration by marque expert Fabrizio Pandolfi and has covered only minimal mileage since. Acquired by the present owner in 2018, it is accompanied by a spares package that includes a spare engine, two gearboxes and a spare front differential, as well as its original Wagenpass.
