Alfa Romeo 147 details:
The system is now available exclusively with the 150 bhp JTDM motor 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 vehicle to adopt Common Rail technology), has seen a considerable increase in torque delivery to the wheels even on compact vehicles. Alfa Romeo has designed the sophisticated 'Q2' system to guarantee maximum control and traction in all driving conditions.
additionally 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 back spoiler, chromed exhaust terminal, lower stance and the 'Q2' logo at the back. 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 helm, gear lever and hand brake gaiters, grey anthracite trims on the helm and central control panel, special 'Q2' heel-high strips and aluminium pedals. The equipment of the Alfa Romeo 147 Q2 is completed by radio controls on the helm, cruise control, the VDC system, 6 airbags and a Bose Hi-fi system.
