It's sub zero, even though Sven Goran Erikson appears to be driving it in the photo.

Cool and very desirable but not quite sub zero for me.

It's certainly a lot cooler than its direct competitors of the time such as the Focus RS.

At risk of flaming, I don't think the 156 GTA is cool but I think the 147 is. It looks like a fairly pretty hatchback but hides a huge amount of wallop. For that reason I think it's sub-zero.

I've always thought of it the other way around - the 147 GTA is undoubtedly cool, but the 156 GTA is cooler. I might be biased though

You obviously think so!

A regular 147 is cool, so the GTA can only rank as sub-zero!!

I have seen a Nuvola white one in my home town.

It must be quite a common colour.

Yes, only cool.

I love mine to bits but there's something missing that stops it from making the top spot. I'm not sure what that missing something is though... the styling maybe - just not special enough.

when i first saw pics of the 147GTA i didn't like it, but seeing it in the flesh is a different experience, seeing Ghosty's flying up the road full bore is a sight to behold
