2008 Autodelta Alfa Romeo 159 J4 2.2 C


Just a week after the Autodelta 159 J4 2.2 C received its world premiиre in Amsterdam, the brand new high performance sports saloon will make its public dynamic driving debut at Belgium's legendary Spa-Francorchamps race track on the occasion of Spa Italia (28/29 June).

2008 Autodelta Alfa Romeo 159 J4 2.2 CThe new Autodelta 159 J4 2.2 C features a specially-developed supercharger system including a Rotrex C30-74 unit, new aluminium inlet manifold and bespoke intercooler, which adds up to drive the Alfa 159 saloon to power of 245 bhp and 290 Nm of torque coupled to upgrades in the area of the transmission, chassis, brakes, electronics and aerodynamics. It becomes the third member of the exclusive J-series model range, joining the Brera J5 3.2 C and Spider J6 3.2 C in our line-up.

The dramatic model is the result of an 18 month development programme that has focused on supercharging Alfa Romeos direct injection JTS engine, making Autodelta the only firm in the world to apply forced induction principles to this power unit. The overall package hones the Alfa 159 into a true high performance saloon, pushing its dynamic abilities forward in every area, but without compromising on its comfort and ‘touring’ characteristics. Top speed is raised to 165 mph, while 0-62 mph is achieved in 6.9 seconds. Exclusive features of the 159 J4 2.2 C include 8.5x19 OZ Botticelli Ultra Light alloy wheels, height adjustable coil over dampers with bound and rebound settings, stainless steel free flow dual silencer exhaust system, mechanical limited slip differential, front, rear and side aerodynamic kit, and perforated discs and new compound pads all round. The order book is set to open on July 1st when full pricing will be announced.

Autodelta will have further models from its bespoke range in action over the two day Spa Italia event (28/29 June) including the Autodelta GT 3.7 Super Evo and two examples of the Autodelta 147 3.7 GTA AM Super. Autodelta's Managing Director Mr Jano Djelalian and the team will be on hand to introduce the new car and explain our products and services in general.

This dynamic debut builds straight on from the launch of the J4 2.2 C last weekend in the Netherlands which went very well and I'm delighted with the response of both the guests at the event, and the wider response in general already. The JTS supercharged demo cars were in action non stop during the two day event and we had very receptive feedback as well as having to start taking pre-orders. I must register my thanks to our Dutch agent Sam van Lingen who organised the two day event superbly, and made it a real success as well as an enjoyable experience for all the guests.”
