Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C

Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C


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.

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. It evolves from the Brera J5 3.2 C programme, however, it offers new specification in areas pertaining to a convertible sports car as well as unique and individual styling cues. In line with a new generation of model designations, introduced with the Brera J5, and created to classify bespoke Autodelta models in a logical and progressive manner, the new Spider project becomes the first bearer of the J6 code. The ‘C’ tag designates ‘Compressore’.

Engine
After three decades one of the most beloved automotive masterpieces, the ‘Arese V6’, has given way to an all-new 3.2-litre V6 engine. Twenty years experience developing Alfa Romeos has enabled our engineers to take this new unit and utilise a carefully developed integral supercharging system. At the heart of the robust yet lightweight, no compromise integrated supercharging system is the C30-94 unit supplied by Technical Partner, Rotrex. This unit is considered to be the most responsive supercharger available, noted for its durability, light weight and compact format.

The Spider J6’s V6 engine to now turns out 348 bhp (an increase of 88 bhp) and 430 Nm of torque (an extra 108 Nm), all delivered in a useable, responsive and smooth manner. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C races from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.5 mph) in a highly impressive 5.4 seconds (standard model: 7.0 seconds), while it hits a top speed of 260 km/h (161 mph); compared to the standard model’s 239 km/h (149 mph). An entirely new bespoke stainless steel exhaust has been developed in conjunction with Technical Partner Ragazzon to maximise exhaust gas flow.

Suspension & drivetrain
The chassis dynamics have been re-worked to provide optimum handling and ability to use the additional power without compromise. The Spider J6 3.2 C draws from the experience gained during the realisation of the Brera J5 3.2 C. This has seen Autodelta development cars running on tracks such as Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and the Nürburgring. The suspension advances of the Brera J5 3.2 C has been evolved to suit the different characteristics of the Spider, which is a soft top and offers less chassis rigidity than its coupé sister. This means that the Brera J5 derived coilovers have been re-valved to offer excellent ride comfort whilst improving handling.

Exterior styling
Any Autodelta product must of course be truly distinctive, building carefully on Alfa Romeo’s tradition of sensuous styling, complimenting the Italian designers’ masterpiece in a unique yet discreet manner, to evoke a fashionable product that is embedded with Autodelta’s own vibrant DNA. More so than most automotive stylists’, Autodelta demands styling upgrades that incorporate both genuine aerodynamic improvements and the demand for improved airflow to its more powerful engines. The complete styling package was developed around ‘performance’, ‘individuality’ and ‘passion’.

The Spider J6 styling package comprises of a specific aerodynamic front bumper, aerodynamic diffuser and side skirts.
