Paul and the Autodelta 147 GTA AM 3.7 Super were simply never headed. The fastest time, a lap during the post-lunchtime qualification session in 2:05:968, put the stunning black car firmly at the top of the timesheets, more than half a second clear of its closest rival. Punching above its weight is in the Autodelta DNA and this best time was 0.611 ahead of second fastest car, the Lotus Exige (410 bhp) of Herman Gast, and 0.810 ahead of the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 (400 bhp) of Marcello Martinez. Other fancied cars left in the wake of the Autodelta entry included several more Skylines (in R32 and R33 guise), Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX (300 bhp), Subaru Impreza GTT (450 bhp), Mazda RX-7 (450 bhp), Toyota Supra MkIII (550 bhp) and Audi TTS (340 bhp).
Impressive list of scalps!

Driver skill comes into it a lot as well.

But a very impressive list of scalps non-the-less!

The handling qualities imbued into the compact front-wheel-drive Alfa 147 by Autodelta’s engineers have created a driveable machine, able to humble more expensive cars on the track and yet provide a comfortable ride to the circuit.'

550bhp from a 80s Toyota? GULP.

Unfortunatly, qualifying were the only laps the Autodelta GTA made. In the Netherlands we have a stupid rule about loudness on the tracks, the Autodelta GTA was to loud and therefore banned from the track.......
