At the end of the 1950 season, a further updated version of the Alfa Romeo 158 known as the Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 Alfetta was produced. This version had reworked rear suspension, the old swing axle was replaced with a De-Dion axle and the engine produced around 420 bhp (313 kW) at 9600 rpm. For their last World Championship race (until 1979), the 1951 Spanish Grand Prix, Alfa Romeo introduced a new evolution version known as the 159M, the "M" standing for Maggiorata ("improved").The 1952 World Drivers' Championship was run to Formula Two regulations, so the Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 Alfetta became obsolete.The car's last Grand Prix win came in 1953 at Merano Grand Prix, Italy.This article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License.
