Alfa Romeo 147 GTA

Description

A few short months after the launch of the Alfa Romeo 156 GTA and Sportwagon GTA, we welcomed the Alfa Romeo 147 GTA to the same family: the new car extended the product range of this type of car into a segment typified by a higher proportion of women and young people. The model has been produced with the aim of creating an everyday car that can still offer its driver race-track performance and sensation under the right circumstances.

Under the bonnet, the 3.2 liter V6 engine produced 250 hp (184 kW) and 300 Nm of torque, which allowed a top speed of 246 km/h, 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds and 26.1 seconds to cover a kilometer from a standing start. The suspension geometry and settings were also altered for better performance, and the VDC (vehicle dynamic control system) included in the standard equipment.

On the outside, the design of the car reflected the changes to its chassis and mechanicals. The redesigned front and rear bumper and the wider front fenders made the vehicle look broader, closer to the ground and more beefy while still ensuring instant recognisability.
