- Original UK manual example
- Just two previous owners and low mileage
Launched in 2002 as the top of the range hatchback model for Alfa Romeo, the GTA is powered by the classic Busso 3.2 litre 24 valve V6. Said to produce some 247bhp it gave a top speed of circa 153mph. Characterised by wider arches, Teledial 17-inch alloys and a more aggressive grille design, most examples had six-speed manual transmission whilst a small number featured the Selespeed automated manual system. In total, 5,029 147 GTAs were built, 1,004 of which were Selespeeds.
This original UK manual example is presented in metallic silver. It was first registered in March 2005 and has just two former keepers; the previous keeper owned the car between September 2005 until 2015 when the present vendor purchased the car. Its most recent service was by CG Motortech in Milton Keynes in Sept 2021. This car comes with two keys and is fitted with a Clifford Alarm system, OZ Racing 19” Ultraleggera wheels and the seats are upgraded to OMP Strada reclining bucket seats. With the current mileage at just 39,700 miles and having had very few owners this is a great find.
