Alfa Brera 4 wheel drive diesel Hi again Does anyone know when the new 4 wheel drive Brera diesel will be available? You often read snippets of information in the Press but this is normally media speculation. Another question, the GT looks fantastic as a coupe (always my preference) but is there a reason why it does not have the larger 2.5 diesel engine and 4 wheel drive? With this combination, I would be at the front of the queue to buy one.
By the end, the Alfa Romeo UK team posted an average of 44.82mpg, which is a commendable 20.48 per cent (or 7.62mpg) improvement. The class winners were Andrew Duerden and Chris Mooney in their Vauxhall VXR8 who finished with an average of 32.14mpg, which was a 53 per cent improvement over the manufacturer’s official figure of 21.0mpg. The overall winners were Mick Linford and his co-driver Ella Flynn, who recorded an average of 99.24mpg in their Smart ForTwo CDI.
The platform locates the engine transversely and accommodates front- or four-wheel drive, which Alfa calls Q4 and employs a 43/57 front-to-rear torque split that varies in response to wheel slip using a Torsen center differential. In Europe, the V-6 comes with a six-speed manual transmission for now, but a six-speed automatic transmission should be introduced later this year.
