147 GTA Japanese Import V6 3.2 Selespeed 2005 (05)

Grade 4B Japanese Import, recently imported and now registered in the UK. Exemplary example of the car, drives like a monster (like it should), immaculate underside, “looks like a two year old”, 93,363km’s (verified) ie. 58,000 miles, in Grigio Metallico (Gunmetal Grey) with the Black and Orange Imola Leather interior and the all important teledial wheels.

The GTA used the famous Busso 3.2 V6 engine, 247 hp and has a top speed of 153 mph. It has a widened body (15 mm at each side) to accommodate the 225/45R17 tyres. This car has the widely acclaimed 6 speed semi automatic Selespeed system with steering wheel paddles and a stick not to be confused with the 5 speed system on non GTA’s which can be problematic. The box takes a wee bit of getting used to but once you’ve sussed it out it’s truly great fun and quick as …..

The car has an ArqRay aftermarket exhaust (cat back) it sounds sublime! Brushed steel door handles and rear badge, Clima air deflectors, good Momo tyres, two keys, all the books (admittedly in Japanese) and the extensive service history @ 2,712 / 9,331 / 15,587 / 18,270 / 25,153 / 27,000 / 31,264 / 32,010 / 48,340 (Cambelts) / 56,391 / 59,145 / 64,053. All figures are in KM’s.

I imported the car, I have the original auction sheet from Japan to prove mileage and auction grade, UK registration documents and MOT to August 2021 (happy to put a new 12 month MOT at purchase). The wheels and callipers have been refurbed and I have changed the av system for a better Xtrons unit still working through the factory Bose amp and speaker system. I have not converted the speedo it still reads in KM’s but it’s easy to change the dials to MPH.

The car is from 2005 and there are imperfections as you would expect. I believe in full disclosure so here are those imperfections; Rear spoiler has been poorly fitted, would benefit from removal and refitting. Tiny dents about 7 between 2-4mm difficult to spot, tiny paint blemishes light scratches, small area of damage to the leather in the rear seat, not cut or holes just wrinkle and a slight discolour.

I had a local specialist look over the car and refurb the wheels and callipers as they let the car down a bit, he was impressed and said it could be a show car with the tiny blemishes ironed out. Admittedly it’s due it’s cam belts and I may do this along with the minor blemishes mentioned but the price would obviously go up accordingly.

Potential buyers are very welcome to come take a look and listen, I’m based in North Devon and I’m happy to do a video walk around for anyone before travelling to see it in person. This is a superb and outstanding example, everything works perfectly and it’s ready to go. I have priced this car at a very sensible price for its condition and spec, considerably lower than comparable cars available at the moment, not meaning to be rude but please don’t waste either my or your own time with below the belt offers, everything is negotiable but don’t take the piss! I do not want a swap, potentially I would look at part-ex but only for a much lower value car or bike.??The GTA was one of the very few cars that Top Gears Jeremy, Richard and James agreed was the pick of the crop, all loving it. Jeremy Clarkson described the acceleration as "Ferrari throttle? Forget it. When you stamp on the accelerator it´s like you´ve hit the Millennium Falcon´s hyperdrive. Suddenly all the stars are fluorescent tubes”. And the handling as "...A corner was coming. And then it was a distant speck in my rear-view mirror. I vaguely remember turning the wheel and I have a dim recollection of being astounded by the grip...and then the moment was gone. No, really, the damn thing is a barnacle..."
