It's a fairly well known (and bragged about) fact within the Alfa Romeo community that Jeremy Clarkson once said "You can never be a true petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa" What isn't quite so well remembered, is which car lead him to say these words that make every Alfa fanatic so proud? Was it the 33 tipo stradale, one of the worlds first "supercars". Was it the 8c competizione, a stunning V8 sportscar? No, infact it was the Alfa Romeo Brera!
And it’s quite easy to see why it tugged at his heart strings. I mean these cars can now be nearing their thirteenth birthdays, but you'd never know it. Because of the Brera’s timeless, gorgeous styling and this particular example’s superior condition you would be forgiven for thinking it's a much younger car than it is. With a great combination of exterior livery, unusual interior upholstery and the stunning 18” wheels - any Brera is a headturner, but this one really does stand out from the crowd.
This Brera is the 2.2 jts petrol engine which combines a nice healthy 182bhp to help it meet its 0-60 of just over 8 seconds and should still return a nice healthy 30mpg. But you don't need to go fast in a Brera, after all these cars look like they are going 100mph when standing still! Its a 2006 model meaning you can tax it for just £28.44 a month and insurance group 27. So all in all its the best of both worlds, exotic design, nice performance and reasonable running costs!
For a teenager the car is in great condition with only the most minor of marks to its exterior and the interior is close to immaculate. She boasts a good service history, with evidence of new front springs, drilled brake discs on each corner, Mintex pads and the steering rack being replaced under two years ago adding proof to the fact she has been pampered. Upon sale we will have a new mot carried out, a service and the car will come with three months comprehensive warranty and break down cover. What more could you ask for?
