Followed a white Ti Sportwagon north bound on the A34 from the A303 on Sunday. Yes it was me in the red 156 SportWagon, and no you didn't loose me, I was nursing vibrating knackered driveshafts.

Same in Preston/Blackpool area. There isn't a day goes by where I don't see 159s, all over the place.
Now Spiders and Breras, that's a completely different thing. Weeks can go by before I see another one.
Feels really good to drive something so rare .

Would love a Brera, but I am too tall, if they had no sunroof, think I would be ok.

Only time I tend to see another Brera down here in North Kent is at meets.
Though I did see a 946 Spider on the link road at Ebbsfleet Interational coming into Southfleet a few weeks back. I was in the red Brera S V6 going out towards Gravesend.

We both waved but I think we were both so shocked at seeing another Brera/Spider that we both nearly crashed!

Couldn't agree more about the rarity value too. Nearly everyone looks when you go past them. Though that might just be because of the Prodrive exhaust!

P.S. Hi AlfaBreraNew! I added you on Facebook a while back!

Some don't.. I stumbled upon mine expecting it to have the pan roof to find it didn't.. annoyed at 1st but actually, the extra headroom is what made me buy it as you don't ave to have the seat in a space shuttle launch position!
