Autodelta is proud to present for its world première, the Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C, at the MPH07 Motor Show. The Spider J6 3.2 C will be unveiled at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London (1-4 November) and then displayed at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham (8-11 November).

The new Spider J6 3.2 C is Autodelta’s no-compromise interpretation of the stunning Alfa Spider, which collected the prestigious accolade of ‘Cabrio of the Year’ upon its launch at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. It is Autodelta’s second bespoke model to be based on the exciting new generation of Alfa Romeo models, and its market arrival follows the very successful launch of the Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C just over a year ago.

The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C once again redefines the company’s pursuit of the maximum performance and driving pleasure to be drawn from Alfa Romeo’s production models, and is the culmination of more than a year’s intense research and development as well as engineering innovation. The Alfa Spider becomes the first model to be designated “J6”, following on from the Brera’s “J5” coding.

Twenty years experience developing Alfa Romeos has enabled our engineers to utilise a carefully developed integral supercharging system which allows the Spider J6’s Alfa 3.2 V6 engine to now turn out 348 bhp and 430 Nm of torque, all delivered in a useable and responsive smoothly manner. The integrated supercharging system is a unit supplied by Rotrex to Autodelta; in fact the Rotrex C30-94 which we use on this car is considered to be the most responsive supercharging unit available today and is noted for its durability, light weight and compact format. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C achieves 0-100 km/h in an impressive 5.4 seconds, while it hits a top speed of 260 km/h.

The “J6” tag denotes a bespoke Autodelta sports car: hand crafted in the finest Autodelta tradition and uniquely personalised to the individual customer’s tastes and requirements. Each Autodelta car is ingrained with our overwhelming desire to create the ultimate driving experience for the Alfisti. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C offers an accomplished and carefully refined chassis to maximise delivery of its new superior power advantage and performance upgrades have been wrought to the transmission, suspension, electronics and braking capability.

Any Autodelta product must of course be distinctive, building carefully on Alfa Romeo’s sensuous styling, complimenting the Italian designers’ masterpiece in a unique yet discreet manner, to evoke fashion a product that is embedded with Autodelta’s own DNA. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C features a new integrated front bumper which carries the familiar Autodelta visual stamp and which has been designed to increase airflow to feed the new intercooler. Down each side new full length skirts provide an aerodynamic enhancement, while at the rear a new bumper section incorporates a ‘diffuser’ set between the quad exhaust tail pipes which feature the oval profile first seen on the Brera J5. An entirely new bespoke stainless steel exhaust has been developed in conjunction with technical partner Ragazzon to maximise exhaust gas flow.

Jano Djelalian, Managing Director, Autodelta says: “We’re delighted to be back at MPH with another new product after a very hectic year, during which we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. The demand for the Brera J5 has been overwhelming and as such we have had to step back from our promotional activities in recent months to focus on restructuring to meet the demand. The Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C now extends our bespoke range further still, and we hope that Alfa Romeo enthusiasts’ will find the J6 meets their expectations. I look forward to seeing our customers and new faces at both Earls Court and the NEC.”

Technical Partners

Autodelta’s strength lies in having a close working relationship with its technical partners, who assist in the research and development of each bespoke models, thus guaranteeing maximum leverage in the pursuit of optimum performance in each technical area. Two key partners are Dunlop Tyres and OZ Wheels. An intensive development programme was undertaken in conjunction with Dunlop in Germany to develop a tyre compound which would suit the individual characteristics of the J5 and J6, while OZ supply a wheel which incorporate cutting-edge technology and lightweight properties. All our bespoke models are supplied on Dunlop tyres and OZ wheels and we are pleased to announce that these two technical partners will be represented on the stand at MPH07. Other partners on the Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C project include Mangoletsi (car supplier), Ragazzon (exhausts) and Rotrex (superchargers).


The philosophy behind MPH is simple: the organisers bring together a collection of the world's most desirable cars, display them beautifully and bring them to life in a unique theatre. Now an established major event in the UK motoring calendar, MPH takes place in two venues, London's Earls Court and Birmingham's NEC. This year amongst the feast of exotica on show will include the fearsome 806 bhp Koenigsegg CCX, the UK debut of the Aston Martin DBS, the exotic track-oriented 7.3 litre Pagani Zonda F Clubsport, and a string of stunning Ferraris including the F40, F50, F430 Spider, 599 GTB Fiorano, Enzo and the track winning F430 GT. The centrepiece 75-minute “theatre” experience costs more than £1m to stage. BBC TV Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson (who famously described the Autodelta 147 GTA AM 3.7 as “the world’s fastest hot hatch – ever”), along with co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond and friends, will host the unique live show as usual.

MPH and Autodelta

MPH has a strong legacy for Autodelta. The two-decade old aftermarket Alfa Romeo design and tuning house presented its first exclusive bespoke model – the Autodelta 147 GTA AM 3.7 – during the first edition of the show, MPH03, held at Earls Court back in November 2003. The next year Autodelta presented two models for their world premières at MPH04, the Autodelta 156 GTA AM 3.7 and the Autodelta GT Super, while at the following edition, MPH05, the assembled crowds saw the debut of the Autodelta GT Super Evo, featuring a performance step over the previous model which made its world debut at the London show.  Last year the Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C made its public debut at MPH06, seen for the first time in production format after its world preview in Monte Carlo. Autodelta attended both MPH shows – in London and Birmingham. This year it is the turn of the Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C to be unveiled for its première at the MPH07 edition, again at both London and Birmingham.

“The MPH Motor Show is dedicated to exclusive, high-performance, prestige cars, all displayed in relaxed and carefully laid out surroundings; values that fit perfectly with Autodelta’s philosophy,” said Autodelta’s Jano Djelalian recently. “The audience attracted to the MPH Motor Show is always very discerning and appreciative of the goals we continually strive to achieve.”

The new Autodelta Spider J6 3.2 C will be on display alongside the Autodelta Brera J5 3.2 C and from 1st-4th November at Earls Court, London, in Earls Court 1 on Stand No DP4, and from 8th-11th November at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, Hall 5, Stand No DP6 & 8.
