Alfa Romeo Spider

The new Alfa Spider will inherit the glorious Alfa Romeo tradition in the Spider segment. It is based on the Alfa Romeo Brera, from which it borrows the main technical features.

Alfa (Brera) SpiderThe new Alfa Romeo Spider could have been named “Alfa Brera Spider”. In fact, it is the open version of the successful Brera model.

However, the “Spider” name respects a tradition that begins back in the 60’s, with the first “Alfa Spider” model (better known as “Duetto”) and even earlier with the Giulietta Spider.

We think that its prestigious design – derived from the most acclaimed Alfa of the latest years – will allow Alfa Romeo to be competitive again in this important market segment.

The latest Spider model was introduced in 1995, so Alfa Romeo’s enthusiats were impatiently expecting a new entry for a long time.

The new Alfa Spider will be unveiled at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show together with the new Alfa 159 Sportwagon

From the official Press Release:

Also debuting in Geneva is the Alfa Spider. A complex, sophisticated creature which both recalls the glorious 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 Spider is a generously-sized two-seater – 1,830 millimetres wide, 4,396 long and 1,367 high – characterised 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.
