Verdict

The Brera was never meant to be a road going car - it actually started life as an ItalDesign concept car based around a Maserati in 2003, however, Alfa submitted to demand and went ahead with a production version. Developed alongside the 159 the Brera shares exterior and interior styling cues, as well as engines and gearboxes. It's more of a grand tourer than an outright sports car but is still enjoyable to drive and is available with two petrol engines plus a refined diesel.

A sportier Brera S was introduced in 2008 and this limited edition model comes with tuned suspension, a lower ride height and larger alloy wheels making it more focused on demanding roads. In 2010 Alfa Romeo introduced the 200bhp 1750TBi engine on the good-looking Brera range.
