Alfa Romeo Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C

Redefining driving pleasure and maximum performance, the new Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C truly embodies its brand values, quick and easy to handle. It is the result of years of hard work together with innovative thinking, associated with intense research and development. The letter J from its name, Alfa Romeo Autodelta Brera J5, stands for the company's founder, Jano Djelalian. The Autodelta models are known for giving their drivers sheer exhilaration coupled with high performance and genuine practicality. This supercharged vehicle announces another strong Autodelta tradition that has become very central to the engineering philosophy in recent years. Furthermore, Autodelta appears to be the only company worldwide that makes use of the forced induction on this Alfa Romeo unit, thus raising the power stakes. The performance figures of the Autodelta Brera show 348 bhp and 317 lb-ft of peak torque, achieving the 0-60 mph sprint in 5.1 seconds, while the maximum speed is governed at 162 mph. The braking system has been updated to perfectly manage the additional requirements of the extra power, while the car also integrates a reworked suspension with new Autodelta sport Line Dampers with Coil Over springs. The engineers placed a special emphasis on the style, which is understated, but individual. Thus, at the rear, the customary Autodelta splitter accentuates the curving rump of the Brera, setting the Alfa Romeo apart from the crowd. The subtle and distinctive looks of the Brera is completed by the 19-inch OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels and Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires.
