THE Alfa Brera at this year’s Geneva motor show was fitted with the new 1.75 liter 200 HP Tbi engine (Euro 5), giving it a maximum speed of 235 km/h and 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 7.7 seconds. Despite this exciting performance, consumption and emissions are low: respectively 8.1 litres/100 Km and 189 g/km of CO2 (in combined cycle).
In addition to its high-spec equipment such as the Frau leather covering, the dual-zone climate control, the electrically operated seats, Cruise Control, the 7 airbags, the VDC system (with Electronic Q2) and Hill Holder, this car can be identified from the TI logo on the front wings.
The Alfa Romeo engineers have tuned the suspension and geometry (-10 mm) to further enhance the already renowned handling characteristics and sportiness of the car; springs and shock absorbers now have a stiffer set-up, specially designed to ensure effective grip for the 19” tyres.
The new alloy rims, inspired by the 8C Competizione, have a shape designed to achieve maximum weight reduction and cooling of the braking system. The latter features large brake discs and red Brembo one-piece aluminium front callipers with radial mounting. These high-quality technical features constitute the maximum expression of Alfa Romeo driving pleasure, with its time-honored qualities of agility, steering precision and safety under all conditions.
The interior of the TI combines the highest sporting spirit of Alfa Romeo with the class and elegance expected from an Italian product. On request, the centre console of the dashboard and the steering wheel insignia can be in carbon fibre. The steering wheel anatomical grip and gear change knob are finished in perforated leather.
Alfa Romeo Brera’s interior environment can be rendered even more exclusive by choosing a leather dashboard, a refined hand-crafted option. For maximum driving satisfaction, the instruments also come with sporty graphics, with white lighting, while the pedals and foot rest are in aluminium with a special non-slip treatment.
How good does that sound!! Lets hope we get the ti spec in the UK!!
