Alfa Spider to go on sale in January 2007

The new Alfa Spider, which shares its genes with the Brera, is to be showcased at the Auto Africa Motor Show.

According to Fiat South Africa this topless beauty will go on sale here in January 2007 - pricing will be announced closer to the time.

The two-seater Spider, which is 1 830mm wide, 4 396mm long and 1 367mm high - is characterised by elongated rear lights and four exhaust pipes.

The interior of the Alfa Spider is similar to that of the Brera with a host of comfort features.

There will be two engine options available, a 135kW 2.2 JTS engine or the powerful 191kw 3.2-litre V6.

It comes with high double wishbone suspension at the front and Multilink at the rear. The 3.2-litre derivative also features Alfa's state of the art "Q4" four wheel drive.
