Not sure it should be in the GTA lounge. ;)

I'm pretty sure this is owned by someone on here, I've seen it discussed at length before.

'You would only know by opening the bonnet'. Or, of course, by turning the key...

A wine bottle containing water ?
A real sheep in wolf's clothing. I have never seen the point if this kind of dressing up. If anything, I prefer it the other way round. Only those in the know have any inkling it's a Q car.

Toyota MR2's dressed up as Ferrari 355's spring to mind....not really my cup of tea, I'd prefer the full 100%.

No, I thought exactly the same. As someone else said, it's perfect for an engine swap, fiat coupe, etc. It's a gorgeous looking car regardless of what's under the bonnet.
That's what I thought! It would then be more powerful and better balanced than a standard GTA

Have to agree with Mitch - looks great and a real labour of love for someone. How about buying it and fitting a Fiat Coupe engine to it ? :devious:
You cant fit a FIAT Coupe engine to a 147 unless you redo the whole wiring in the whole car.
The 147 is a CANBUS car, the FIAT Coupe is not. :)

A better option would be to turbocharge the existing engine.

Or even better, get a 3.0 / 3.2 litre engine and a V6 gearbox + driveshafts.

There was an I5 2.4 and I5 2.0 Turbo in Lancia Thesis, which had full canbus system. So basically the same engine as in Fiat Coupe just a bit modernized (and detuned for better low-end torque). Never sold in the UK though...
