Celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio Verde, a cloverleaf symbol used by Alfa Romeo racing driver by the name of Ugo Sivocci for good luck in 1923, the Italian car maker is releasing a hotted-up version of its Mito hatchback in the British market.
This celebratory Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde special edition is powered by the brand’s 1.4-litre TB MultiAir engine with 170 horsepower. It gives the MiTo brisk performance with a 0 to 60 time of 7.5 seconds and top 136mph while at averaging 47.1 mpg on the combined fuel economy cycle and CO2 emissions of just 139g/km.
The MiTo QV also offers £2,000 worth of extras fitted to the car as standard; including 18-inch Sports alloy wheels; SDC active suspension system; four-piston Brembo brake calipers; special Quadrifoglio Verde sports seats and those all-important Quadrifoglio Verde badges on the wings.
Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde hot hatch is priced at £16,995 OTR. So if you wanted to buy a MiTo, this is probably the best opportunity to do so. Exclusive models like this will have better residual value as well.
