Do you think so?That's horrible, looks like a chav mutant has got his grubby little hands on a 147 and a copy of Max Power
Paddy, who used to requent this site, bought one of these (or very similar) recently... just needs a new gearbox
It's an ex-Eoin Murray car (He's now racing in some rounds of the BTCC with his WTCC 156 which was his prize for winning the 147 Cup.
Exactly! This is what gets to me with the whole 'Chav' theory....it has got to the point where a lot of people see any car that does not look like it has simply rolled off the production line and they instantly label it as being 'chavved up'Do you think so?
It's all functional
OK, so maybe the chav comment was a bit harsh....... but I still don't like it at all. For starters, why use a GTA front bumper when the extra intakes are going to be blanked off? And the extra lines and vents on the bottom of the bumper just look nasty. I don't like the rear spoiler either, it's like it was made for a different car......... like a Cinquecento
Maybe I just don't appreciate the 'raw' look of it. I'll stop being a Victor Meldrew and leave this thread alone
There was a GTA version though if I remember correctly which did use the GTA shell with similar visual aerodynamic additions but I think it used a 2.0 TS engine. That is all down to advertising and promoting the top of the range in a brand. I think the 156 GTA's that were used a few Years ago in the ETCC also ran 2.0lt TS engines as that was all that was allowed under the regs.
