I demand more information on slimbloke's apparently Autodelta-pimped Brera before I cast my vote

Well Happy Re: AO Car of the Year 2008: 159, Brera & 946 Spider (4)

Morning all (or afternoon etc. depending on where you are

Thanks very much for the nomination

Here are the required five additional shots of my 159 2.2JTS Ti for you to salivate over

For some background, some of you may remember that this car was a "forced" replacement of my much loved and totally stunning Red 2004 156 2.0 JTS Veloce which got trashed on 19/9/07

Anyway, I really wanted a Red Ti but they had all gone. I considered Black but thought it would be a swine to keep clean and felt that it camouflaged (except those mirrors ) the wonderful muscular lines of the car. Stromboli shows it off to perfection.

I keep it spotless and have grown to really appreciate the merciless efficiency of the 159.

Over to you guys & gals now

Cheers,

I was really struggling to fall for the Brera until I saw this one 'in the flesh' recently.

There's only one Brera to vote for in this

159 are too common

Ach, this was tough... they're all gorgeous... and all seem well kept... I went for a Brera (am shocked that there were NO Spiders nominated...) and had to go for one with a skyroof...

They've all got SV.

It's just that you don't get the 70s
twotone effect with a black car.

To keep the competition going, here's some photos of my beautiful Misano Blue Brera, the colour for this car. Judge for yourself.
