RHD Alfa Spiders get 218bhp V6

Tue, 03 Apr 2001
Alfa Romeo has announced that from this week its charismatic Spider will be available with the same 3.0 litre 218bhp V6 engine and six-speed gearbox as the coupe.

Peak power is developed at 6,300rpm and peak torque of 196 lb ft (266Nm) at 5,000rpm. This is enough for a 0-60 of 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 145mph. Combined mpg is a reasonable 29.1 and CO2 emissions should be the same 278g/km as the coupe which put the car in the £155 a year VED bracket.

The official on the road price is £26,043, which included automatic climate control, electric hood, Momo leather trimmed upholstery, driver and passenger airbags and ABS.
