Italian automaker Alfa Romeo announced the production of a new gasoline direct injection turbo engine at their homeland factory in Pratola Serra from early 2013.

This engine is a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder unit designed for both transverse and longitudinal applications which will deliver 300 HP and will meet the Euro 6 and the US Tier 2 Bin 5 emission standards.

Alfa Romeo's new 1.8-litre engine will be entirely made from aluminium and incorporates technologies such as a 200-bar gasoline direct injection system, dual valve timing and a high-efficiency turbo. The new powerplant will set new standards in terms of power-to-weight ratio and efficiency, and is also designed to provide acoustic and vibrational comfort.

Harald J. Wester, Fiat's Chief Technology Officer and head of the Alfa Romeo and Maserati said that "This

is an extremely important step for Alfa Romeo, as we continue to reposition our brand and prepare it for global distribution. The United States remains our primary objective as we prepare for a 2013 introduction of our models," "The dedication of Group-wide resources to develop specific powertrain solutions for the specific needs of Alfa Romeo is a reflection of the renewed thrust we are placing on the development of this brand. This is afirst step in a series of initiatives to be implemented in the near future which will reconnect Alfa Romeo to its historical roots as a premium Italian sports car brand.
