Special Edition Alfa Romeo 147 Ducati Corse

Alfa Romeo and Ducati have come together to produce the Alfa 147 Ducati Corse

Alfa Romeo, official car suppliers to the Ducati Corse racing team, have teamed up with Ducati to produce the special edition Alfa 147 Ducati Corse. If it’s raining/snowing really hard and you don’t want to take the 1098R or Desmosedici RR out of the garage, one of these Alfas just might do…

The Alfa 147 Ducati Corse is fitted with Alfa Romeo’s 1.9-litre, 16-valve, 170bhp JTDM turbodiesel. The handling is said to be sporty, courtesy Alfa Romeo’s Q2 system, and there’s a ‘Sport’ button in the car that varies the fuel injection mapping – mash the accelerator pedal and off you go. Hard. The car will do zero to 100km/h in 8 seconds, and hit a top speed of about 215km/h.

The Alfa 147 Ducati Corse also gets specially designed 18-inch alloy wheels, 225/40 R18 tyres, red-painted brake calipers, leather seats, a rear spoiler, and… er, Ducati decals. Available colour choices are red, black and white. For more details, visit the Alfa Romeo website here
