2.0MJet Twin turbo....

...has been announced (on Italiaspeed) for the forthcoming Alfa Romeo Milano (the new 147 replacement). Since it is being built on a revised Bravo platform and at the same factory, I wonder whether they will stick it in the Bravo, or will Fiat think it will tread on the Alfas toes?

Sounds good though, 220BHP and 50 odd mpg.

Re: 2.0MJet Twin turbo....

The 147 sounds good, but i hope it doesn't have a MITO face. I should like the Mito but it reminds me too much of the Nissan Micra and that brings back memories of the horror that is the Arna, eurgh!

Re: 2.0MJet Twin turbo....

Wait until they show the model with the lowered suspension, big alloys and subtle bodykit (TI?) before judging. And like the MiTo (which I now like) it will probably look better in the flesh

Everything seems to be based on the bravo platform these days

Re: 2.0MJet Twin turbo....

I really like the boot with the 147 mk1 front teardrop lights.

That is a very intergrated radio...

Best spec the good one!

final edit... wonder if them 'hidden' door handles can be fitted to the Bravo

Re: 2.0MJet Twin turbo....

Looks like an expensive Bravo.

It'll be interesting to see how the Bravo and Milano ranges stack up - performance, suspension and Alfa's DNA system etc.
