The Alfa Romeo 183T is a Formula One car that was used by the Alfa Romeo team during the 1983 season. The car, with a newly-designed flat bottom, made its debut at the 1983 Brazilian Grand Prix and carried the livery of the team's main sponsor Marlboro.

Basically the car was an updated version of the 182 with a V8 turbo engine fitted.

The 183T took 18 points from 29 entries; Andrea de Cesaris managed to score two second place finishes and also gained one fastest lap at Spa Francorchamps, a race that he started from the 2nd row and led over half the distance.

Unlike the preceding Alfa Romeo F1 cars, the 183T chassis was not designed by Alfa Romeo's Autodelta; instead Euroracing's chief engineer Gérard Ducarouge was the main designer. Euroracing had been earlier successful in Formula 3 with Alfa Romeo engines.
