The powerful 200 bhp 2.4 JTDM 20v engine is now available on the Alfa Spider family, combined with a sporty 6-speed gearbox. The new version will be on the market in Italy and Germany in mid February, followed shortly thereafter by the other markets.
It guarantees excellent power and torque delivery and low fuel consumption in all driving conditions; in fact performance by the 200 bhp Alfa Spider 2.4 JTDM 20v is superb (it has a top speed of more than 228 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.4 seconds), yet consumption is limited: in the urban cycle the car consumes 9.2 litres every 100 km, out of town this becomes 5.4 litres and in the mixed cycle it is about 6.8 litres.
The 200 bhp 2.4 JTDM engine is a jewel of automotive engineering that confirms Fiat Auto’s supremacy in this field. Ever since it first developed the Multijet system, the Fiat Group has set its stamp on the diesel engine market. The Alfa Spider’s new Multijet engine respects Euro 4 limits and incorporates a DPF (particulate trap) that eliminates fine dust, already meeting the limits currently envisaged for future Euro 5 legislation. It is a ‘for life’ system that does not need to be regenerated with additives, and will be eligible for tax incentives.
In Italy, the price of the car on the road will be Euro 39,800.00 for the Alfa Spider 2.4 JTDM version and Euro 41,800.00 for the Alfa Spider Exclusive 2.4 JTDM.
