Alfa Romeo has come up with an upgrade package for the MiTo. And they claim it turns the car into a full Italian thoroughbred.

To make its UK public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week, the Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde comes with added visual presence and driver focused interior, and a price tag of £18,755.

The car features black surrounds for fog lamps and lower air intakes, new high-quality Quadrifoglio Verde badges in micro-brushed aluminium, with the four-leaved clover design in relief, exclusive Quadrifoglio Verde 18” alloy rims (upgraded from the previous model year’s 17” wheels) and low profile 215/40 tyres. There are other, less noticeable updates like the wing mirrors, headlight (and rear light) surrounds, and door handles, that are now finished in a pearlescent, satin effect material.

Inside the really sporty cabin you get the MiTo sport seats with a central column in Alcantara, two-tone (green and white) artisanal seams on the seats, steering wheel, hand brake lever and gear knob, carbon fibre backed Sabelt, caron fibre-look dashboard trimming, and exclusive Cloverleaf badging.

The power comes from the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp engine which offers increased performance with lower fuel consumption (combined cycle 47.1 mpg) and emissions (139 g/km CO2). The car is fitted as standard with seven airbags and Vehicle Dynamic Control (ABS, ASR, EBD and Brake Assist) with Hill Holder.
