It is with much regret due to lack of use, I am selling my Nuvola White 147 GTA. She was built in Oct 2005 and registered November 2005, so one of the last built. In excellent condition with an extensive service history as follows -

10/04/2007 15655miles Medway Alfa Romeo
03/10/2007 23383miles Western Alfa Romeo
27/10/2008 31597miles Western Alfa Romeo
26/10/2009 39013miles Western Alfa Romeo
08/10/2010 46902miles Day & Whites (Cambelt Replaced)
13/10/2011 52981miles Optima Motors Alfa Specialists
02/11/2012 55910miles Stoneacre Alfa Romeo
15/11/2013 59331miles Stoneacre Alfa Romeo
12/12/2014 62884miles Autolusso (Cambelt Replaced)
18/11/2015 67155miles AFH1 Alfa Specialists

The car comes complete with full leather, Bose sound system, Winter Pack (Xenon's, heated seats, headlight washers), 330mm Brembo's and had the Q2 diff fitted by Alfa in 2007. File of receipts for all services and work carried out. MOT is due May 2016. The current mileage is 67,300. The cambelt was replaced in December 2014 by Autolusso, where a premium service was carried out. The front discs and pads have recently been replaced by Ferrodo parts. New ECU and radiator fitted by Stoneacre in 2013. AFH1 serviced the car 2 months ago and gave her a clean bill of health.

In the time I have owned her I have covered only 5000 miles, around half of these were on a trip to Italy last July. It never missed a beat on the trip, and was great fun on the Alpine passes! I purchased the car from Dan and I am sure he will vouch for its condition.

Asking £8350ovno
I can be contacted for viewing on 07951 910240, or 01773 535825 in the evenings. Car is based in Nottingham.

I saw your car whilst last at AFH1, in fact we spoke for a couple of minutes I think. It is a beauty!!!! Good luck with the sale. I wish it was me buying it but I am selling my GT 3.2 as soon as the last few jobs are done. I can't be buying another busso engined car more is there pity

Looks great. Shouldn't be around for long at that price.

I would say lack of use is a good reason to keep it though! Just a few thousand miles a year for fun is perfect, use something boring/modern as a daily driver. No depreciation that way.

I have the opposite problem, thinking of reluctantly selling mine too, as my miles have shot up to 400/week. Was only doing 5k a year before.

(I'll wait until yours and the other couple of nice looking ones around at the moment have gone first though!)

Loved this car, it was awesome. Don't forget it has Koni FSD shocks on it too (on original GTA springs), I think they were done at 50-ish thousand? Should be in the history. Its perfectly at home bombing up and down the motorway as it is on a twisty backroad, body control is top notch. I don't think you'll have any trouble at all getting your asking price.

Thanks guys, I will miss it when it goes. My daily is a boring Rav4 diesel which is why I haven't been using it much really, just giving it a run when I go to work at weekends. I have my eye on a Shelby Mustang which is another reason it has to go. Two Mustangs and a GTA would mean a visit to the divorce courts I think!

Thanks Dan, forgot about the Koni FSD's. It really does drive well, the trip to Italy was a joy, both on the motorways and the twisty bits.

Just a quick update, the GTA was collected by its her owner this morning. Very sad to see it drive off, but it has gone to a good home. I'm sure the new owner will be on shortly showing it off!

I bought Darren's GTA. I was actually looking at the one in Merseyside (being sold by a very nice guy) and then by coincidence Darren's one came up at the same time and the rest is history as they say.

The car's absolutely lovely and goes very well indeed. I enjoyed the drive back down to Surrey and it performed very well. It gave a good account of itself down 'The Mad Mile' in Banstead!!!

It really is a nice example and doesn't really need anything doing to it which is great and shows the attention this car has had lavished on it over the years. My intention is to keep that up. It will be an evening/weekend car and as such should be doing less than 5k a year.

Bloody typical though, the sidelight blew this morning which I believe is an absolute nightmare job on a xenon equipped 147! But other than that all good.

These white ones are like buses. Non for months and then all selling at once.

Without meaning to hijack this thread, the majority of my GTA service history has been lost from the first 8-10 years....but has had everything covered in the last 2-3 inc Q2, belts, rad etc. What timespan do you think needs to pass before this isn't such an issue when selling on?

White 147 with 59k miles and 2 previous owners, Q2 belts done etc and mechanically sorted over the last 2 years. I am guessing the lack of history would put a lot of people off as an investment?

Hi Adam, glad the drive home was good and sorry about the sidelight bulb, typical.

Could you do me a favour? If you go in the boot, under the towing eye is a small key for a Disclok. Could you have a look and let me know?

Darren

PS Missing the car, the drive seems very empty without it!

As an investment, "maybe". But I buy on condition, not history - as I'm sure others do. Are you thinking of selling then?

Cheers,

Was this the one with the lairy exhaust and slightly dodgy paint?
