Alfa Romeo’s stylish Brera convertible or ‘Spider’ is already one of the best looking droptops currently on sale but to give its profile a boost just in time for the northern summer UK dealers are now offering a Limited Edition model fitted with a number of new features as standard.

The Alfa Spider Limited Edition features a choice of three color combinations (Carbonio Black, Alfa Red, Ghiaccio White) plus 19in alloy wheels, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable and heated memory front seats and door mirrors. The car is also now available with Fiat Group’s Blue&Me hands-free system with voice recognition and media player.

Under the hood sits the familiar 185hp 2.2L JTS petrol engine, which sees the car accelerate from 0-62mph in about 8.8 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 139mph. The new limited edition goes on sale from next month onwards with prices starting at £25,500 ($50,000).

Other models include a 3.2L V6 JTS with 260hp and a 2.4L JTD turbodiesel with 200hp on tap.
