Romeo Brera interior

The was first rolled out at the Geneva show in 2002, and it stunned the Styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Design it was never intended to a production model. The prototype all wheel drive, carbon bodywork and the engine was a 90 degree V8 displaced 4.2 Litres and produced 402 bhp was then set back in the chassis to aid distribution.

The Brera featured the long nose, short styling reminiscent of other Italian GT’s. The front the classic Alfa Romeo and an aggressiveness that has echo’s of Il the classic love-it-or-hate-it Alfa ES30 SZ from the early The wheel arches are subtly and with the smooth waistline the suggested power.

Like one of its predecessors, the Montreal, Romeo decided that due to the the design received, it would go production as Alfa Romeo a replacement for the ageing GTV and Spider. its production engineering was carried out by design’s arch rival however the design remains faithful to the original concept the gull wing doors of the car have been dropped.

The is based on Alfa Romeo’s platform, as is the Alfa 159 but the wheel is significantly shorter. This has more torsional rigidity the outgoing GTV, and the Alfa engineers have exploited coming up with some well judged suspension The car is as happy to be thrown around the lanes, helped by the low ratio rack and the passive rear steering, as it is cruising down the

The Brera, who’s name comes from a posh of Milan, has three engine 2.2 litre four cylinder 3.2 litre V6 petrol and 2.4 litre cylinder diesel. The 2.2 litre produces 185 bhp and like the V6, is based on a GM This engine has variable cam on both inlet and exhaust and has considerably more torque the outgoing Fiat unit.

this engine fitted the car come with a 6 speed or Q-tronic gearbox and drive be through the front wheels. The V6 produces 260 bhp and is matched to a four-wheel system that normally the power 43/57 with the to the rear. When the torsen c senses a lack of grip it can the torque split from setting so that 78% of the torque to the front or rear wherever it is

The V6 engine looses none of the of the Alfa Romeo V6 it replaces and makes the spine tingle at revs. The 2.4l, 5 cylinder, 20 common rail diesel variable vane turbocharger is a over from the Alfa 156 and as is a tried and trusted product; in guise the power output is up 175 bhp to 200 bhp and it produces a massive 400 lb foot of

The GTA version should be available in 2007, and Alfa Romeo been mule testing the bi-turbo 3.2 v6 at 380hp and the 4.7 v8 at 450hp and at the it looks as if they will the V8, however there is a chance they will use an overbored of the V6 at around 3.6 litres as that is available through General

The interior is a very nice to be, there is a feeling of quality every surface padded soft cloth in the door and the centre console is made real Aluminium. The instruments the sporty feel carried from past Alfa with all the gauges facing the and the leather seats are both and supportive. Starting the engine is a of pressing a button and the minor controls are on the adjustable steering

The Brera chassis is quite a from Alfa’s of the recent and is built and I do mean built, chassis is easily capable of 400bhp. Suspension components are the size of the out going GTV and even the present 260bhp the chassis gets flustered, it merely exactly as you tell it, there are non of the moments you get in a GTV 3.0 either, it is just out for more power.

Looking at the design of the chassis in of bushes and fixtures it also to be designed to last, these look well engineered and at of the same quality as there but only time will in this department. Alfa well and truly sorted out the issues with no model in the last 15 years showing any of corrosion.

The Alfa Romeo is a coupe in the tradition of Alfa but it has some very stiff from the Audi TT and the Nissan 350 Z. the TT it started life as a show however the verve that this car an Alfa Romeo is setting it above its rivals.

The Brera has just received a face lift and its production in Southern Italy has been While the external revisions are the factory has done some revisions under the skin and have managed to shave up to off the kerb weight; this is a big as this was one area where the car was at a when compared to the competition. the weight of the unsprung components is an where they have their efforts with the calipers now manufactured from a aluminium, together many modifications to the suspension components as as a significant reduction in the weight of the
