The designers who created the Alfa 147 GTA were given a very specific brief: to create a car for everyday use that could, under the right circumstances, ensure customers the performance, behaviour and driving sensations of a car built for racing. Without detracting in any way from the stylish, understated shape that typifies this compact Alfa Romeo car.

Although no constraints were set, the designers preferred to highlight functional aspects of the car and made radical changes to the already excellent base offered by the sporty Alfa 147. In other words, they altered all the parts that affect the car's dynamism.

Hence the powerful V6 engine, completely new suspension geometry and settings, state-of-the-art active safety systems and new sports alloy wheels. The result is a car capable of thrilling performance (it is the most powerful car in its segment) and truly scintillating responses in terms of dynamism, ride and handling. All in all, a car for those who demand the very best when it comes to sportiness. And want it to be known, albeit without ostentation.
