147 vs. Ferrari F360

It was a beautiful day yesterday, the first for a long time, so I went for a drive in the Cotswolds. Leaving Cirencester towards Stroud I was following a Ferrari F360. We pottered through the 40 limit then he was off with a clear road ahead. Well, I had to try to keep up, and to my amazement I succeeded thanks to a couple of lucky overtaking opportunities.
So there you have it; proof that in the real world the 147 is as fast as a Ferrari!
Anyone else had some fun drives?

147 versus the world more like boys!!!

Ever since i got bitten by the Alfa bug i have realised that those never touched by the Alfa magic do not undersand the concept of speed.

Everywhere i go nowadays i have to overtake people who are driving way too slow. The good thing is of course is that they see the 147 grille in their mirrors and of course have to give it respect and move out of the way.....cool!

Every drive is a good drive when it comes to my 147.

The government are looking to control the numbers of Alfas on British roads to avoid the potential for widespread outbursts of good taste in car choice and general anarchy amongst uk drivers.

Let us keep Alfa special and amongst those that already know what it is like to live in the Alfa dimension.

hhhhhhhhhhmmmmm really should lay off those laxatives.......strange side effects man!?!?

Iíve had the same experience as you did a couple of months ago. But next year I can really compare the F1 vs Selespeed gearbox because my brother has ordered a 360 F1 Spider.
