So she doesnt try to pull you off the road under hard acceleration.. nice!

Every FWD I ever had with more than 200 horse would torque steer on take off... but all of those were from back in the 90\'s.

@Monkeypop
Well my friend,
The 147 GTA has front suspension with double wishbones that is a real rarity for a car of this segment. Correctly we call it ‘high quadrilateral’ because, in their connection to wheel knuckle, the arms of the suspension design, exactly, a figure with four sides.
Thanks to suspension geometry It has been allowed a strong inclination of the axis steering towards the front of the car (positive angle of caster) that give a progressive effort on steering wheel that increase uniformly till adhesion limit and assuring greater precision and sensibility of the steering also under strong angles (es tight curves ).
The most important limit of the car is the lack of a front limited-Slip differential. I have talked with my Alfa Romeo collegues and I will assembly very soon an Alfa Q2 system that it’s fully compatible with the GTA.
Last but not least, the selespeed gearbox supplied by Magneti Marelli. A lot of people doesn’t know Magneti Marelli supplied to Ferrari the F1-gearbox system from first launch on F355 to the last application in 599 GTO …. I will improve it without any reliability loss.

You know I’m getting old … my green english bath tube was great, fast but not so comfortable. Check this

How is the torque steer when you get on it hard from a stop? Thats a lot of horses for a FWD.
