On June 9 and 10 the public will be able to examine and try out the Alfa 147 Murphy&Nye, the new version that has resulted from collaboration between Alfa Romeo and the company famous for its brand of nautical clothing and sportswear designed for the racing world.
Powered by the sparkling 120 bhp 1.9 JTDM, the car has exclusive Light blue Crystal bodywork, 17” alloys and a chrome-plated exhaust terminal. The grille, whiskers and wing mirrors all have the same satin-effect finish, while the Murphy&Nye logo, a name of great distinction in the yachting world, decorates the pillar and rear end.
Inside, the sporty effect is even more refined, underlined by an original leitmotiv that links the car world to the world of yachts. The result is a blue and cream colour combination that lightens the interior, sporty leather seats with blue side strips and a cream seat, and the Alfa logo embroidered in red on the head restraints. The red coulisse on the gaiters of the gear lever and hand brake knobs and on the document pockets of the seats gives an extra touch of refinement. The kick-panels decorated with the M&N logo and the rope and frogging pattern on the mats underline the bond between this 147 and the sailing world. There is a generous range of M&N accessories that includes a large bag, a key-ring and a document folder with the company logo. Standard equipment on the Alfa 147 Murphy&Nye also includes foglights, dual zone automatic climate control, Cruise Control, a trip computer, VDC, ASR, 6 airbags and a radio complete with CD player and 6 speakers.
Available with a 5-door body and a list price of ¤ 24.690 on the road, the Alfa 147 Murphy&Nye perfectly embodies the values shared by the two companies: a passion for racing, for a challenge and for freedom. Alfa Romeo models have always combined unique, typically Italian style, with a high technological content, at the top of their class for performance and capable of guaranteeing strong emotions, an exciting drive and total safety. Murphy&Nye similarly boasts a long tradition in the yachting world. Its years of experience began with sail production before they moved on to the creation of technical clothing designed and made for the racing world, constantly experimenting with new hi-tech fabrics.
The elegant, sophisticated Alfa 147 Murphy&Nye is metropolitan and sporty, dedicated to people who like to live on the move, and who demand beauty combined with practicality and convenience. The worlds of the car and of the yacht meet on board the Alfa 147 with an unprecedented appeal. The launch of the new Murphy&Nye version will be preceded by a special initiative on the http://www.alfa147game.it/ site from June 3.
