Spider Serie Speciale 2004 rims are quite different from simillar rims from alfa 156 Ti or 166 Ti. Look opposite the airvent, Ti versions have a special logo, which Spider rims lacks. Also their size is different.
Special thanks to Diego.
916 2-piece steering wheel of perforated leather limited editions. Motus and Edizione Sportiva Spider
is… 147kW (200CV)
9 documents provided by manufacturer regarding the CORRECT GTV/Spider V6 TB power, both Phase 1 and Phase 2. All state 147kW (200CV) not 148 not 149. It does not matter if You found a journalist or a register that provides other information. MANUFACTURER states 147kW. See brochures, owner’s manual, workshop manual, press kit.
Also on Wikipedia the entry, edited by me, states 147kW, so untill a hard evidence is provided this value will not be changed.
