Alfa Brera Pics

Don't know if this has already been posted elsewhere here, but the official photos of the Brera are out. Now if they would only make it RWD.

The Brera looks like a 147 update and the 159 looks like a 156 update. Both nice designs.

the brera prototype was atctualy release before the 147 from what i can recall, and im pretty sure it was a rwd setup because i remeber reading an article of a particular prototype Brera that one of the drivers from Top Gear had written, and he said that there was minimal tire tread left on the rear, mainly because of all the doughnuts that the lucky and somewhat crazy italian owner done in it, and it lifted off like a RWD car 2 :P eitherway, its certainly an eye catcher to say the least, however, its a little to sharp for my liking, id rather the TT 8C!

It's too bad that that production car will be using the Brera name. It isn't much like the prototype at all. It is a nice car, and I DO like it, but it ain't no Brera!!

I am sad to hear it's FWD. I think it's going to be very tough to sell a $35,000 front drive coupe when the 350Z, G35 and RX8 are out there. To sell the Brera needs to outperform the 350z for only a little more money, with FWD I don't think that will happen.

Note that they are displaying a Giulietta SZ with it (isn't that what I see in the background of the first picture?). Not stupid to try to draw a comparison between the Brera and the SZ. I hope it is a good comparison.

That is what Alfa will have to do here if it wants to regain a foothold in the US. Make some really good cars that fit into a slightly-different market niche and HAMMER their storied-history and past successes in their marketing. The Giulietta (not the SZ, but the others) was less expensive than a Porsche, Jaguar or Corvette but more refined and sporting than a MG--sort of a pseudo-exotic. That's what got them going here in the '50s and '60s.

Maybe Alfa can convince the US market to forget Alfa's past failures and focus on its successes. Of course, they'll have to back it up with some really good cars. Otherwise, they'll never have much more than a cult following here (assuming, of course, they really do come back).

Beautiful car - at the right price, could get me into modern Alfa ownership!

I haven't been following the specs - how does it compare to the Alfa GT? Smaller / more powerful?
