Well, something great is happening on the 1st August 2004 in South Africa...

Alfa SA is launching the 147 GTA. It's about time! Every other country has had them since early 2003. But it was more pressure than anything else that persuaded Alfa to launch it here, reason being that they launched the 147GTA Racing team in the beginning of the year to challenge the BMW's reign over production cars in SA. And needless to say, BMW no longer leads the races. The 147GTA's have lead nearly every race in the the Production Car series here since they started. So naturally Alfisti were dissapointed when Alfa said even though they were racing the 147 GTA locally they had no intention of launching it here. But after all that success, they had no choice...

So I am gonna go test drive one soon. I really shouldn't, as I know I'll will end up bending over backwards to buy one...

Anyways, just thought I would tell you guys.


if you have to ask, then you'll never understand.

Re: Finally!

Brad, better late than never!

We won't see any GTA in Thailand at all due to high import & excise taxes. The latter will be increased in a month time, so any car with greater than 2.5L displacement will be even more expensive. But we may finally get the 2.5L V6 which may end up a bit cheaper with new excise tax.

Looking forward for some pics.
