Alfa Romeo (UK) has just announced highly competitive pricing for the eagerly awaited Alfa 147 GTA, which goes on sale here next month.
Equipped with a six-speed gearbox and powered by the same widely acclaimed 250bhp 3.2 litre 4 OHC all-aluminium Alfa V6 that powers the 156 GTA and 156 Sportwagon GTA, the high performance newcomer is wider and lower than its 147 stable-mates, running on 225/45 tyres and 17" alloy wheels. Sophisticated on-board electronic systems include ASR to limit wheelspin under acceleration, VDC for stability control, MSR to modulate braking torque, and TCS which is active at low speeds.
A notably comprehensive standard UK specification includes sports cloth seats, cruise control, a Bose sound system, heated front seats, and headlamp washers.
The full price breakdown is as follows:
