A BEVY of new models headlines Alfa Romeo Australia's exhibit at this year's Sydney show, led by the Italian brand’s latest (Brera coupe-based) Spider two-seater convertible – sub-$77,000 pricing and full specifications for which were revealed last week.

Alfa's new 159 sedan and 159 Sportwagon range is also on display, alongside the GT and Brera coupe offerings and the brand’s upgraded 166 Ti sedan flagship.

Alfa's sister brand Fiat also presented new DuaLogic variants of its Punto light hatch.
