If there was an award handed out for most stylish hot-hatch ever made the Alfa Romeo 147 would surely be in the running for the crown. The GTA is the hottest 147 ever made, featuring the same naturally aspirated 3.2L V6 that we saw in the GTV coupe, the GTA is a joy to drive with one of the most evocative soundtracks to ever come from a small hatchback. With 184kW and 300Nm, the front-wheel drive 147 GTA holds its own against the current crop of turbocharged hot hatches accelerating to 100km/h in 6.3sec.
Alfa Romeo has always had a panache for creating romantic silhouettes that make car enthusiasts question why they’d drive anything else, the 147 is no exception to the rule. The masculine front end, flared wheel-arches and twin exhaust tips set the GTA apart from the rest of the 147 range and make it instantly recognisable to car enthusiasts.
This GTA Monza is number 15 of 100 units that were brought to Australia over a period of two years. Unfortunately for the seller and luckily for the buyer, this 147 has depreciated in true Alfa Romeo fashion and is now a bargain at $14,000 for anyone looking to get their hands on a future alfa classic.
