Autodelta unveiled the Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C, at the MPH07 Motor Show. The Spider J6 3.2 C will be unveiled at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London (1-4 November) and then displayed at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham (8-11 November).
The new Spider J6 3.2 C is Autodelta’s no-compromise interpretation of the stunning Alfa Spider, which collected the prestigious accolade of ‘Cabrio of the Year’ upon its launch at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. It is Autodelta’s second bespoke model to be based on the exciting new generation of Alfa Romeo models, and its market arrival follows the very successful launch of the Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C just over a year ago.
The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C once again redefines the company’s pursuit of the maximum performance and driving pleasure to be drawn from Alfa Romeo’s production models, and is the culmination of more than a year’s intense research and development as well as engineering innovation. The Alfa Spider becomes the first model to be designated “J6”, following on from the Brera’s “J5” coding.
Twenty years experience developing Alfa Romeos has enabled our engineers to utilise a carefully developed integral supercharging system which allows the Spider J6’s Alfa 3.2 V6 engine to now turn out 348 bhp and 430 Nm of torque, all delivered in a useable and responsive smoothly manner. The integrated supercharging system is a unit supplied by Rotrex to Autodelta; in fact the Rotrex C30-94 which we use on this car is considered to be the most responsive supercharging unit available today and is noted for its durability, light weight and compact format. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C achieves 0-100 km/h in an impressive 5.4 seconds, while it hits a top speed of 260 km/h.
The “J6” tag denotes a bespoke Autodelta sports car: hand crafted in the finest Autodelta tradition and uniquely personalised to the individual customer’s tastes and requirements. Each Autodelta car is ingrained with our overwhelming desire to create the ultimate driving experience for the Alfisti. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C offers an accomplished and carefully refined chassis to maximise delivery of its new superior power advantage and performance upgrades have been wrought to the transmission, suspension, electronics and braking capability.
Any Autodelta product must of course be distinctive, building carefully on Alfa Romeo’s sensuous styling, complimenting the Italian designers’ masterpiece in a unique yet discreet manner, to evoke fashion a product that is embedded with Autodelta’s own DNA. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C features a new integrated front bumper which carries the familiar Autodelta visual stamp and which has been designed to increase airflow to feed the new intercooler. Down each side new full length skirts provide an aerodynamic enhancement, while at the rear a new bumper section incorporates a ‘diffuser’ set between the quad exhaust tail pipes which feature the oval profile first seen on the Brera J5. An entirely new bespoke stainless steel exhaust has been developed in conjunction with technical partner Ragazzon to maximise exhaust gas flow.
Jano Djelalian, Managing Director, Autodelta says: “We’re delighted to be back at MPH with another new product after a very hectic year, during which we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. The demand for the Brera J5 has been overwhelming and as such we have had to step back from our promotional activities in recent months to focus on restructuring to meet the demand. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C now extends our bespoke range further still, and we hope that Alfa Romeo enthusiasts’ will find the J6 meets their expectations. I look forward to seeing our customers and new faces at both Earls Court and the NEC.”
