Anyone want a GTA

Scarily cheap

No thanks!

That is very cheap though. Maybe it's because they've ruined the wheels and the looks as a result of painting them black?

Bodywork looks good for 130k, the bodykit on most leggy GTAs I see looks like it's about to fall off.

i.e. it should scare you off?

Nope. I'd buy it for a laugh if I had the spare cash and a desire to spend all my time at the petrol station. One of the only Alfas I actually like. I even like the black wheels on it.

ah, so its one of three;

1-  Scare you off
2 - Scary how cheap such a great car is
3 - Scary how tempted you are

In theory.

Doesn't always apply to cars though. But you need your wits about you.

A 156 GTA with 130K being sold off a Derby Council estate does set some alarm bells ringing I'd agree.

whats the scrawl on the back?

Is the anti-theft device a Mondeo ST then?

Seems the "price is right"

Here's one from the Mazza dealer for only a bag more!

EDIT - thats a 2005 which makes the original look expensive!!!

as someone once said, that is lovely and a G wagon would make a nice pairing as well!

It looks remarkably good in the pics doesn't it (black wheels aside)?

I saw some total shed GTA's below 5k years back, this has the Q2 diff and cosmetically looks decent - not that photos are always the best guide. Lots of bills too. The only worry is the track sticker!

I have vaguely pondered the idea of a 147GTA toy to stick in the garage simply as I doubt we will see its ilk again, and it's still the best looking, best sounding, maddest hot hatch ever in my book. But my issue with the 156 and 147GTA, as second cars, despite them being well proven (especially on here with 4 owners doing crazy things like tracking them, driving them to Russia, etc) is that I am spoiled by a better handling and identical performing daily driver and these are not track cars and too sensible to be a toy.
