This is a ventilated disk. The standard Murena disk is not ventilated and much thinner. You would have to replace the calipers to use this disk. Others have upgraded the brakes on their Murena. Graham comes to mind. But doing so may not be legal in your country, without new certification. In Denmark it would have to be recertified, as far as I know.

I needed new discs so I looked for a lot for them, mainly for the rear ones, but I have never seen that one... You should contact the seller, I think.
Here are the Brembo figs of original discs. The rear one is for the Murena 1.6, but as Roy told me, only the outer diameter different (260mm).

Don't believe partshops that tell you, this is for your car.
There is a lot of misinformation and especialy about the brakes.
The original rear disks are for sale again, but at the  time I was busy restoring the brakes of my 2.2 they were not.
So I made a converssion to Alfa brakes (also 260 mm) using the original calipers.
This brakessystem has the same specs as the original.









The spacers you see between holder and mounting point are replaced by a solid spacers of 6 mm
This is mounted a few years  now and working flawless.
Was dirt cheap to do, but I had the disks for around € 20.-, and machining the axle hole on the disks costed me some beer.

Where are those spacers placed...? And I think you have to buy some more of those discs if you can get them at that price, cause I would also like some!  Grin

HA! I thought that these would be much to big to fit on a Murena....
Especially since the diameter of the disc was 13" allready, and a hell of a lot of boltholes. Turned out to be for a Man Truck....
