2008 147 Collezione

Just released, the new 2008 147 Collezione. I like the colour schemes and the 17inch alloys are very flash. Not a bad price either.

The Alfa 147 Collezione

I know the 147 is getting on but the limited editions make it a very stylish hatch.

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

love the alloys but the design is getting a bit tired now,was never sure about the facelift either.
the interior looks exactly the same as my 2001 147 lusso,thats seven years old now....

I saw one of these in the flesh today and it looked great - the pic doesn't do it justice. Interior may be old but it looked OK to me. This car oozes style.

Cheers,

Nigel

Second viewing! Not sure which appeals to me most: The shape of the car, or the girl? I'll take both please With ankle rotations like that, a most sensous lady: The car has something to match up to!

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

I saw one one exactly like that a couple of weeks ago at Piccadilly Motors in Knaresborough. It's a very striking car 'in the flesh', so to speak. The only thing I didn't particularly like are the huuuuuge badges on the front wings.

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

Look great, I can hear the dealer at trade in time........"there's no demand for white cars".

Alfa are only doing whateverybody else does when the replacement model is ready; giving them tart up and selling the off as "limited editions" or words to that effect.

I'd have one though.

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

White is due for a revival, in the correct shape of course, I reckon. So few around now, it'll be original, but must suit that shape!: I've had a few 'whities' loved 'em all.:

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

Nice!, but strange.....It says its available with the JTD 16V, yet the power output is 120bhp and its only a single overhead cam, which must mean that its only available in 8v form and they have got the 16v wrong? Typical Italians .

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

I was in the dealers today(thinking of swapping the 156 for a GT)and they had one of these in the showroom.It looks awesome in the flesh!!specially those charcoal wheels.I'm not a fan of white cars,but I really liked this one,but I'm used to a lot more than 120 horses.Pity they don't do a 2 litre version

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

It does just go to show how good the original design was (even with the slight facelift)....same story with the 156 imo.

Compare that to the competition....

Still remember one of my girlfriends (now ex) jumping into my 1999 156 about 2 years ago, she thought it was brand new!

Re: 2008 147 Collezione

Good design is timeless! The 147 Series 2 deserves more recognition its a styling masterpiece in the realm of compact hatchbacks. Its selling better than ever in Italy and although the Junior should hit the showrooms later this year, the 4 door 149 is not due too late 2009/early 2010 so who can blame Alfa for "spicing up" the 147. I drove a series 2 recently when my wifes 145 was in for belts/service and was hugely surprised by how well the 147 drove. Collezione in white is just so
