Alfa Romeo Brera



The Alfa Romeo Brera was introduced in production form at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It maintained the original’s exterior appearance almost exactly but on a much smaller scale, becoming a mid-size coupe on the GM/Fiat Premium platform (shared with the Alfa Romeo 159 ), and designed to replace the outgoing GTV. A convertible Spider version of the Brera was also announced, to be launched shortly after the coupe and to replace the existing GTV-based Spider.

In Europe. the Brera is available with two petrol engines. the 185 PS (136 kW; 182 hp) 2.2-litre JTS and 260 PS (190 kW; 260 hp) 3.2-litre V6 ; and a 210 PS (150 kW; 210 hp) 2.4-litre JTD turbodiesel. Cars with the diesel or 2.2 petrol are front-wheel drive, whilst the V6 comes with a Torsen four-wheel drive system similar to the 156 and 159 ‘s Q4.

For the model year 2008 Alfa Romeo Brera/Spider changes were made to the mechanics and the interiors of the cars. The 3.2 litre V6 version will now be offered in front wheel drive, as well as a four wheel drive version, allowing for a top speed of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph). All model variants will be fitted with electronic Q2 limited slip differential.

By using more aluminium parts a weight reduction of several kilos is achieved. These new versions were introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008. [ 4 ]

For model year 2009 Alfa Romeo is introducing a new turbocharged petrol engine badged as TBi, this 1742 cc unit has direct injection and variable valve timing in both inlet and exhaust cams.

This new engine has 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) and 320 N·m (240 lb·ft) of torque. [ 5 ] A 230 PS (169 kW; 227 bhp) version of the Tbi 1.75 litre will also be available later in the year which will give Brera a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of about 7.3 seconds.

In Spring 2008 the Brera ‘S’ Special Edition was announced. This Alfa Romeo-approved British-only limited-run version was developed by British engineering specialists Prodrive and was intended to address criticism regarding the handling of the standard car.

Alfa Romeo and Prodrive had previously collaborated in motorsport, campaigning an Alfa Romeo 155 in the BTCC during 1994 and 1995 [ 8 ] .
