Alfa Romeo Spider

The forthcoming Geneva Motor Show will see the world debut of the Alfa Spider, a complex, sophisticated creature which both recalls the long Alfa Romeo tradition in this sector (from the Giulietta Spider in the '50s to the Duetto and the Nineties model), and rolls out some cutting edge solutions in terms of mechanical specifications and engines.

The new Alfa Romeo Spider is a generously-sized two-seater - 71.4 inches wide, 171.4 long and 53.3 high - characterized by elongated rear lights and four exhaust terminals which accentuate the impression of great temperament. The interior of the Alfa Spider is inviting and gorgeously sophisticated, thanks to the use of sumptuous materials and added value features (as standard, depending on the version): from the automatic dual-zone climate control to the steering wheel mounted radio controls, from VDC to cruise control. Available in two versions, the client can choose his or her Alfa Spider to be fitted with the sparkling 185 bhp 2.2 JTS engine or the powerful 260 bhp 3.2 JTS.

Lastly, the Alfa Romeo Spider ensures outstanding dynamic performance thanks to high double wishbone suspension at the front and Multilink at the rear. Along with great ride comfort, the Alfa Spider boasts a sporty configuration and the use of state of the art 'Q4' four wheel drive (available on the 260 bhp 3.2 version).
