Alfa Romeo GT Q2

Alfa Romeo presents the self-locking front differential ('Q2'), which improves all the strong points of a front-wheel drive system in terms of active safety, increasing driving enjoyment and control. The innovative system provides some of the advantages typical of four-wheel drive, but at a significantly lower cost and weight.

The system is now available exclusively with the 150 bhp JTDM engine on the Alfa Romeo 147 and Alfa Romeo GT, but will subsequently be extended to other models in the Alfa Romeo range. It is a step forward that reflects the current state of the art of turbodiesel technology which, since 1997, the year that the Alfa Romeo 156 JTD was launched (the first car to adopt Common Rail technology), has seen a considerable increase in torque delivery to the wheels even on compact cars. Alfa Romeo has developed the sophisticated 'Q2' system to guarantee maximum control and traction in all driving conditions.

In addition to the new transmission, the Alfa Romeo 147 Q2 is also identified externally by a number of stylistic details: satin finish whiskers, grille and mirror housings, special 17" alloys, a rear spoiler, chromed exhaust terminal, lower stance and the 'Q2' logo at the rear. Inside, this version has a particularly sporty outfit underlined by instruments with red scale background and white lighting, leather upholstery with red stitching on the steering wheel, gear lever and hand brake gaiters, grey anthracite trims on the steering wheel and central console, special 'Q2' heel-high strips and aluminium pedals. The equipment of the Alfa Romeo 147 Q2 is completed by radio controls on the steering wheel, cruise control, the VDC system, 6 airbags and a Bose® Hi-Fi system.

  1. Great photos. The features of this car are better than GT. Alfa Romeo is working really hard to make its position in the automobile industry. For more in detail refer Alfa GT
