Open the bonnet and you gasp in admiration...by audaciously squeezing in Giuseppe Busso's legendary designed 250 bhp 3.2 V6 unit into the 147's engine bay and adding an array of spoilers, intakes and 18' alloys, Alfa produced one of the best looking and sounding hot hatches of its era.....simply bellissimo!
This GTA looks very special in its rare hue of 'Blu Mediterraneo metallico' with contrasting black/grey leather sports seats, which incidentally are blemish free, plus rarely seen unmarked 'Jetfin' alloys.
With a smidgeon over 38,000 showing on the odometer, this GTA has had a very sheltered life and remains almost as built apart from the sensible additions of a Quaife Q2 limited-slip differential, an Autodelta airbox and their sports exhaust.
Alfa specialists 'Alfashop' were given carte blanche at its last service (less than 500 miles ago) to attend to anything needed, their £1750 invoice verifies this was a thorough check over. In order for the 147 to remain in near perfect condition, additional work was carried out in January 2018 to treat and remove any hint of surface corrosion to the underside, inner wings and suspension - finally a liberal application of 'Dinitrol' underseal was applied....invoices are on file along with photographic evidence of work.
As you would expect, there is a substantial history file accompanying the car along with all original books and keys. For convenience, a modern Parrot bluetooth system has been installed along with a ipod/phone connecting lead.
A truly immaculate GTA that must be best available. This Alfa Romeo is available to view at my Guildford showroom - please call me on 07788 865700.
