Along with the new 240 horsepower Guilietta, Alfa Romeo is introducing a hot version of the little MiTo at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde comes with a special Matte Magnesio Grey body color, and a 1.4 liter turbocharged for-cylinder engine developing 170 horsepower.
The brilliant MultiAir engine also generates 250 Nm in Sport mode (230Nm in Natural or All-weather modes). That, channeled to the front wheels via a six-speed, double dry-clutch ALFA TCT transmission takes the new Alfa Romeo MiTo QV form 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 136 mph.
The performance, then, is pretty satisfying for a car the size of MiTo. But because the engine is only a 1.4 liter, fuel consumption is astonishingly good at 52.3mpg, with CO2 ratings of 124g/km.
Visaully, and apart from the special paint job, 2014 Alfa Romeo MiTo QV features burnished finish for exterior detailing, twin chrome exhaust tailpipes, a rear spoiler, sports rear bumper, 17″ alloy wheels and Brembo brake callipers finished in red. As always, the cloverleaf Quadrifoglio Verde emblems are present on the wings.
The special edition Alfa Romeo MiTo QV is also packed full of equipment, including air conditioning, cruise control, new QV instruments, a sports steering wheel with white stitching and a gear-lever boot and handbrake lever both embellished with white and green stitching.
