Alfa Romeo GT Coupe (Progetto 937) 2003-2010

Marvelous looking phtos of 2004 Alfa Romeo GT Coupe by Bertone.
Sadly prices are rather expensive for lovely mutation of 147, starting from 32.000 € over here which is considerably more than base price for GTV.
Well, I can't afford even common 147, so who am I to complain?

Enjoy

Cheers!

I have always failed to understand this car as coming from Bertone which made such a gorgeous coupe in the sixties and seventies based on the Giulia. This one lacks the panache to become a real classic.

I haven't seen one in a real life yet, so can't really comment about its "panache" (what a funny word )
In a weird manner this car reminds me a Giulietta sedan from early 1980s, especially from the rear. Same chunky appearance, same tiny rear lights.
But I have a bad feeling that GT Coupe won't be a success story, sadly.

Cheers!

I have seen a couple, but you have to look twice before noticing, it does not stand out. (Panache is a French word, often used in connection with professional cyclists but has nothing to do with doping )

Hell, now I'm confused...

"panache"

#1. distinctive and stylish elegance (can't really see the connection with professional cyclists, but hey, French are mad about Tour de France, so...)

#2 a feathered plume on a helmet (I thought professional cyclists stopped wearing it long time ago , then again, you never know these French guys...)

So, care to reveal the connection??

Cheers!

to comeplicate things, I normally watch cycling races on the Belgian TV, and they speak Flemish but are very fond of the word panache. Some cyclists do have a much more elegant style than others, hence the use of the word.
