Alfa Romeo Brera S

Alfa's latest development of the Brera will appeal to enthusiasts everywhere

A more sporty chassis was the design goal for a limited edition Brera, a vehicle which, while building on the traditional values of the stock car's flair and individualism, was able to communicate more effectively with road and driver.
