The Alfa Romeo Brera is a 2+2 coupe introduced in production form at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It uses the GM/Fiat Premium platform, shared with the 159, Spyder, and Kamal. The Brera will replace the outgoing GTV.

Engines will start with a 3.2 L V6, priced around US$35,000. A V8 based on General Motors' Premium V architecture might be used in the United States.


The Brera was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign Giugiaro and debuted as a concept car in 2002 at the Salon International de l'Auto. It was a luxury Grand Turismo car with V8 power and price point near US$100,000. The Brera was named Best of Show by AutoWeek at the time, and production plans were announced for 2005.

Production was cancelled almost immediately, and was then on and off for three years as Alfa parent Fiat worked out its plans for the brand.
