What's she like to drive?

Bellissimo….that’s all you need to know. 

OK, because it’s a fairly heavy car and an auto, you’re not going to be able to dance it delicately through a set of tight bends. However, it’s ideal for the long flowing and often uneven roads of New Zealand as it’s very well planted and pretty responsive. And when you plant your right foot, especially using the tiptronic manual shift option, that V6 emits a burbling growl that you’ll want to replay when the opportunity next arises.

What do I need to get used to?

It might take you longer to get going each day just because you’ll want to stand outside looking at it, and then you’ll likely get into conversations with others doing the same. When you do finally climb in you’ll be wrapped in a wonderfully expensive two tone leather interior, with plenty of space to move. And then you’ll find this sports coupe has plenty of pace to move you as well.

Drivers over 6’2″ will get annoyed by the side of the roof lining intruding and will find yourself with a crooked neck leaning sideways into the roof space. And the rear seats are suitable only for the very short in limb or very long in tolerance – it’s a 2+2 configuration, so it’s 3 seater at best.

However apart from the stunning colour, there are two ‘wow’ factors. First, pressing the electric sunblind button to reveal the panoramic roof and those big sky views. And second when you stop at night, you’ll just want to leave the doors open so you can gaze at the illuminated Alfa logo projected down onto the ground….nice.

What about safety and reliability?

Yes it is an Alfa Romeo and this one is regularly serviced and has to pass the Certificate of Fitness (CoF) test required for all rental cars every 6 months. You have ABS brakes, driver and passenger airbags, high level brake light and side impact bars, along with very predictable and sure footed all wheel drive handling.

What condition is she in?

Really good. Everything works as it should and it’s very smartly presented inside and out, especially the two tone blue and orange leather.

How much luggage can fit?

The boot can swallow a lot, including a full size solid suitcase and lots of bags. Plus if you’re only two up there’s a lot of extra space on the back seats. For exact dimensions, refer to the Seating & Luggage tab above.

And the best driving tracks from the same year as the car would be?

Although they’re not the best driving songs, as is often the case the female of the species has saved the day from a not great musical year IMHO:

  • Stepping Stone – Duffy 
  • This Is – Grace Jones
  • Lyra – Kate Bush

Now we acknowledge driving music is a very subjective thing, but clearly here, we’re right. So download, hire our Portable Bluetooth Speaker & enjoy!

How fast will she go Mister?

Quite fast enough.

How would a certain Mr Clarkson describe it?

” …the Angelina Jolie of cars..”

And the RentAClassic description for the Alfa Romeo Brera V6 Coupe Hire Car?

” Bella…”

What's important to you?

 

Different strokes for different folks….

Do you want sensible things like comfort, luggage space, affordability (OK….)….

or more indulgent stuff like luxury, handling and powwwwerrrrr (yeah)?!
