A few things regarding the current 3.2 in the Brera/159.
Only the block is GM. The cylinder head, pistons, induction and exhaust are all from Alfa - assembled in Italy.
Having driven both the Arese V6 and the Brera V6, the current 3.2 doesn't sound as epic. But it definitely does still have that Alfa rasp and power. And it has Q4, something the 3.2 GTA's and GT were sadly lacking in the showroom which resulted in diffs blowing left, right and centre.
Yes, it's thirsty. But so too was the Arese.
I'm with RSK and Squadrone Rosso on this one.
Try not to judge until you have driven one. You may be pleasantly surprised.
