159 MY08 - what's it all about then ?
Looking at the 159 at the moment but trying to establish whatthe MY08 release is allabout ? - I asked Alfa last year Q4 if a reduced weight w159 was on the cards as i'd heard rumours and they claimed not.....however it would seem that's exactly whatthe MY08 is !!
From Wikkipedia :-
For "model year" 2008 Alfa Romeo 159 got changes to mechanics and for interiors. The 3.2 litre V6 version will be offered also in front wheel drive version allowing top speed of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph). All model variants are equipped with electronic Q2 "limited slip differential". By using more aluminium parts is achieved 45 kilograms (99 lb) weight reduction. These new versions were introduced in Geneva Motor Show in 2008
Having test drove a 2006 159 I wasn't that imptressed with the interior - anyone know what the MY08 interior will be like ?
Can we expect better ecomony / performance form the 159 now it's finally lost some long overdue lard ??
