2002 Geneva Motor Show. The star of the show was a stunning
concept penned by Giorgio Giugiaro: the Alfa Brera. A 2+2
coupé, the quintessential Italian sports car, it instantly won
the admiration of public and media alike. Today, that prototype
has become a production car. A car for connoisseurs and
cognoscienti that stirs the emotions and provides pure driving
pleasure. A champion of refined styling and leading-edge
technology that combines uncompromising performance with
the comfort of a luxury saloon.
Alfa Brera A sporting thoroughbred
The Alfa Brera is a thoroughbred whose passengers never
want for a smoother ride, thanks to the high wishbone and
multi-link suspension systems that guarantee excellent
dynamics without yielding anything in the way of stability,
safety or comfort. The Q4 all-wheel drive system that matches
the 3.2 JTS V6 engine typifies an engineering know-how that
can be simply summed up as pure driving pleasure.
Alfa Brera Power and technology
With the Alfa Brera, you have a choice of two innovative
petrol engine options. Both powerful, sparkling and elastic,
with loads of engine torque even from low speeds ensuring
optimal acceleration. These state-of-the-art engines also
provide low fuel consumption and low emissions. With
191kW, the new 3.2 JTS V6 is the most powerful engine
from Alfa Romeo and adopts the exclusive Twin Phaser
system to vary intake and exhaust valve opening angle.
No less refined, the 2.2 JTS has four cylinders, twin
camshafts and a Twin Phaser variator. It delivers 136kW
and is remarkable for its lightness, obtained by using an
engine block and cylinder head of aluminium alloy. Two
counter-rotating balance shafts reduce vibration, ensuring
smooth effortless running. Innovative engines designed for
effortless performance and enjoyment.

Alfa Brera Glued to the road
The Brera is the epitome of driving pleasure, road-holding,
and safety. With an uncompromising design, it adopts an
impressive suspension setup that uses a high wishbone
solution at the front – derived from the world of motor racing
– and a multi-link system at the rear. The steering is the most
direct in its category with barely two and a quarter turns from
lock to lock, ensuring remarkably quick response. The braking
system uses four discs (all self-ventilating on the 3.2 JTS
V6), including ABS and electronic brake force distribution.
For maximum safety, the car also boasts the most advanced
electronic traction and stability control systems available.
In the 3.2 JTS V6 model, the Alfa Brera has Q4 permanent
all-wheel drive, a highly evolved drive train that attunes its
dynamic behaviour to any road condition. At the heart of the
system are the “Torsen Twin C” mechanical central and front
differentials, which distribute the engine torque between the
front and rear wheels depending on tyre grip. Under normal
driving conditions, the 3.2 JTS V6 all-wheel drive provides
a performance driving bias at an optimal of 57% torque
delivered at the rear and 43% at the front wheels. This
state-of-the-art Q4 is designed first and foremost to satisfy
the most demanding and passionate of drivers.
Alfa Brera Exceptional comfort
The Brera offers a comfortable, reassuring environment
for driver and passengers courtesy of generous technology,
excellent choice of components and materials as well as
outstanding overall design. All are welcomed from the
moment they step in, with a sensuous, tactile passenger
cabin trimmed in leather. The “cockpit” directs its
instruments toward the driver in a clear, logical fashion
by grouping the climate control system, CD player and
starter button together in the central unit.
Practicality, comfort and attention to detail combine
to offer unexpected everyday pleasure from a coupé
conceived to thrill.
Alfa Brera Wellbeing
The Alfa Brera is all about comfort and Italian style, beginning
with the sleek sports seats with built-in, adjustable head
restraints. Dual zone and “equivalent temperature” climate
control ensure perfect interior and passenger comfort.
The Alfa Brera also boasts an expansive glass roof, shedding
light on an all-new driving experience and comes equipped
with standard features including cruise control, CD changer,
leather interior, trip computer, power windows and mirrors.
Furthermore, the Brera 3.2 JTS V6 comes with a Bose®
Sound System, offering music reproduction to satisfy the true
aficionado, xenon headlights, premium Pieno Fiore leather
interior, electric adjust seats and a Bluetooth hands-free
phone system with voice recognition that also plays music
recorded on MP3 as well as any other USB connecting devices.
Steering wheel controls can be used to select and play back
the recordings through the car stereo system, by virtue of an
inconspicuous socket in a stow-away compartment.

“Alfa Romeo is something special. It occupies a place
apart. It is a kind of disease, this passion for a means of
transport. It is a way of life, a very special way of thinking
about a powered vehicle. It’s hard to define. It is one of those
irrational human traits that defy logical definition.
It’s to do with feelings and passions, things that have more
to do with the heart than the brain. It’s a way of thinking
that derives from racing, where excellence is indispensable
and the pressure to perform is constant… We have always
believed that these concepts find their true expression in the
cars we sell – their drivability, the way the driver ‘feels’ the
car in his hands.”
