CAR com­pa­nies of­ten re­peat spe­cial of­fers that prove pop­u­lar.

Alfa Romeo’s lim­ited edi­tion 159 Ti was so pop­u­lar for the Ital­ian brand last year it has not only brought back the sedan, it is also do­ing a wagon ver­sion.

The new 159 Ti range in­cludes the 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre V6 petrol en­gines, and the 2.4-litre tur­bod­iesel.

The range gets sports sus­pen­sion, 19-inch al­loy wheels, Brembo brakes and a sub­tle bodykit.

There’s also a black leather in­te­rior with red stitch­ing to fur­ther high­light the cars’ sporty cre­den­tials.

The Ti range starts from $54,990 for the 2.2 JTS sedan, $57,990 for the Sportswagon 2.2 JTS and $72,990 for the V6.

Not con­tent with launch­ing just one spe­cial-edi­tion range, Alfa Romeo is also of­fer­ing a lim­it­ededi­tion ver­sion of its 147 hatch (mid­dle) and GT coupe (bot­tom).

The GT comes with spe­cial 18-inch al­loy wheels, red brake calipers and chrome high­lights. It also comes with rear-park­ing sen­sors and sports leather seats.

Power is from the tra­di­tional 2.0-litre JTS en­gine.

The 147 adds $6000 of value by in­clud­ing spe­cial 18-inch al­loy wheels, sports leather seats, chrome-tipped ex­haust, red brake calipers and a rear spoiler.

The GT Monza is priced from $53,990 and the 147 Monza starts at $36,990 for the three-door and $38,990 for the five-door.
