The Alfa Romeo 147 GTA is a compact executive car that was introduced in 2002 as a high-performance variant of the 147 model. This vehicle was engineered with a focus on delivering a dynamic driving experience, leveraging a range of advanced technologies to achieve superior performance and handling. The heart of the 147 GTA is a naturally aspirated 3.2-liter V6 engine that features an all-aluminium construction, double overhead camshafts, and four valves per cylinder. The engine is equipped with an electronic control unit that utilizes a Bosch Motronic ME7.3.1 system to optimize fuel injection and ignition timing for maximum power output. The engine produces up to 250 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 221 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm, delivering impressive acceleration and top speed capabilities. This engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, which has been specifically tuned to deliver precise and responsive shifting, and is equipped with a limited-slip differential to improve traction and handling. The vehicle's suspension system is also carefully designed to provide optimal handling and stability, utilizing high-performance components such as MacPherson struts and a multi-link rear setup. Overall, the Alfa Romeo 147 GTA is a prime example of advanced automotive engineering, combining cutting-edge technology with exceptional performance and handling capabilities.

Presented in the ever-popular combination of Alfa Red with contrasting Black leather interior, this particular GTA features a desirable six-speed manual gearbox and boasts an impressive factory specification including 15-spoke GTA alloy wheels, climate control, leather interior with front electric seats, cruise control, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Winter Pack 1 (includes heated seats), uprated brake discs and more. What makes this particular car rather interesting in addition to the factory specification is that it was sold new by the vendor some 19 years ago through Fish Brothers, and is now offered for sale once more. Having averaged just 6,157 miles per year on average with a new keeper every two, the car is now showing c.117,112 miles on the odometer.

Accompanied with the vehicle is a history file dating back as far as the Pre-delivery inspection. The Alfa Romeo book pack is included, which contains a number of manuals including the service book, which contains a number of stamps. 26 service receipts are included within the history file, with the most recent less than 3000 miles ago, at 114,040 miles. A number of previous MOT certificates are also included, as well as the current V5C document which displays 10 former keepers. An MOT is valid on the vehicle until November 2023, but the vendor informs us that the vehicle will come with a new MOT prior to sale for peace of mind to any potential buyers.

Please note: This vehicle now comes with an MOT valid until 19 April 2024 with no advisories.
