The compact Euro only Alfa Romeo 147 first went on sale in 2000 as either a three or five door hatchback instantaneously became a classic. The Italian economy car combined superb performance with a particular brand of styling that gave the car its unmistakable muscular design. The front end conveys a sense of sport combined with an element of aggression thanks to the Alfa’s signature grill, tapered bonnet and elongated headlights. The units are made of glass and incorporate three circular chromed elements highlighting their black background. The air intake is divided by one central and two lateral, vertical elements that combine to accentuate the compact Alfa Romeo’s strong personality. The 147 was powered by everything from turbo diesel engines to twin spark four cylinder gas burning units that made as much as 150 HP. The car will be replaced shortly by the Alfa Romeo Milano.
