A car specially created for hot and tropical climate requirements, that astonishes you at the first sight with its uniques style and design that Alfa Romeo already got us used to, will be presented on the National Exhibition Center in Birmingham starting the 11th of January.
The Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 MY is a completely focused package and comes with the upgrades to the chassis, suspension, braking system, electronics and styling that have made the car so successful. The so called "Phase II" engine follows on from the 3.2 V6 supercharged engine development first launched on the Brera J5 3.2 C in 2006. The success of the upgrade for the Brera model has caused a very large demand on the Alfa Romeo London base and necessitated a restructuring of the operations, with emphasis being placed on cutting the backlog and on training for the agents around the world to undertake the conversions. The arrival of the Spider (J6) in November has further increased demand.At the same time the company was forced to rapidly respond to global demand for the J5, and recently for the J6, and particularly from climates where constant or variable higher temperatures are a feature. To satisfy this demand the Research & Development (R&D)team focused on a "Phase 2" development of the J5.
In order to face very high temperatures, the Autodelta engineers tested various solutions and finally considered the best was the air-to-air version for simplicity and reliability. Following a series of computer simulation, actual testing was carried out over a period of 8 months on supercharged R&D cars, simulating the conditions of a very hot climate.
The Autodelta Managing Director Jano Djelalian commented upon this matter that “Athens makes an ideal base for our extreme climate testing program as well as the state-of-the-art workshops available; we see very hot weather conditions right throughout the summer and the rugged surface of the roads, plus incessant dust and larger inanimate objects allow us to rigorously test our cars and evolve meaningful, practical solutions. The development team has been based at Auto Corse and we are delighted with the level of facilities made available to us.
Additional features of the car include a very-much appreciated benefit-lower fuel consumption. Sergio Truzzi, the head of the Autodelta R&D said the following: “The supercharged test cars returned near identical consumption in normal driving conditions in back-to-back testing compared to the standard 3.2 aspirated engine, so this for us is a very satisfying achievement.We have evolved ECU mapping that allows [lower grade] petrol characteristics that are prevalent in certain markets our authorized agents work in to operate with our conversions and provide maximum performance increases while putting no strain additional on the engine.”
