Re: my2008 159 ! Any News ?
From an Alfa Romeo press release (Geneva show is in a couple of weeks):
"Returning to Geneva is also the 159 model – berlina and Sportwagon – with some new features in terms of style, design and performance. Two the displays on show: the 159 MY 08 with a powerful 3.2 V6 260 CV engine (for the first time with "front-wheel traction") and the Alfa 159 Sportwagon MY 08 fitted with 2.4 JTDM 20v 200 CV and Q-Tronic gearshift. In the Swiss showroom the 2008 Brera and Spider range are also debuting. Renewed aesthetically and in the specifications, the two vehicles represent the "natural evolution" of the coupè and spider in the new Alfa generation. In Geneva the public can admire an Alfa Spider MY 08 fitted with the brilliant 2.4 JTDM 200 CV and powerful automatic Q-Tronic gears. Also on display the Alfa Brera MY 08 – with front-wheel traction – blessed with a powerful 3.2 V6 with 24 valves and 6-speed gears. Both the cars are distinguishable by a red chassis and black upholstery on the dashboard and seats.
It is worth underlining that with these models - Alfa 159 MY 08 (Berlina and Sportwagon), Brera MY 08 and Spider MY 08 – debuts the new Electronic Q2 system. The Q2 has all the merits of front-wheel and 4x4 traction which noticeably raises road handling, traction, stability issue, and at the same time diminishing the understeer and steering-wheel displacement."
