My First Alfa - Ducati Corse 147

Hi all,

I'm located in Sydney and recently took ownership of a 2008 147 Ducati Corse with 33,000km on the clock. Funny but long story cut short, I actually went to buy this car for someone else but loved it so much in the flesh and on the drive back I decided to keep it for myself Never actually intended on this flashy edition, was just after any 147, totally stumbled into the model not knowing how awesome it is - I think it is the only Australian spec Alfa to come with the fabled Q2 from factory.

I plan to pamper and cherish the car, I've already taken her for a good drive on a fun road and the handling is mind blowing. I look forward to performing a comprehensive DIY service including belt kits, EGR clean and the other usual stuff. This forum has been great a source of info so far

I need to sort out an aux in so I can properly enjoy the bose sound system! I also need to take all of the wheels off and give them a thorough clean and probably paint the calipers red + white alfa decals.

Anyway enough talking, I'll let the pics do the rest!

Looks identical to the one I nearly bought new in 2008 . I got a carbonio Q2 on 17" wheels and no stripe instead. Yours looks fabulous in the Australian lighting!
