Special-edition 147 gets cow-skin trim and big wheels
7 February 2007

Alfa Romeo has produced a special-edition 147, complete with leather interior and metallic paint, and it's on sale in the UK today.

Only 500 examples of the 147 'Collezione' will be made in both three- and five-door variants, with a choice of a 1.6 petrol or 1.9JTDm diesel engine. The decisions don't end there either, as there are three combinations of metallic paint and leather on offer - red and black, grey and black, or red and beige.

Other additional extras include wheel-mounted audio controls, manual climate control and unique 17-inch alloy wheels. Prices start at £13,950 for the three-door 1.6 model, and end at £15,450 for the range-topping five-door 1.9 JTDm.

If all those added incentives wouldn't persuade you into the slightly aged 147, you could wait for the replacement, but it won't be on the market until late 2008.
