2013 Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK

ALFA ROMEO LAUNCHES MITO QUADRIFOGLIO VERDE SBK LIMITED EDITION WITH WORLD FIRST CAR & BIKE DRIVING DARE

Alfa Romeo has just launched a Limited Edition of the Alfa MiTo, the Quadrifoglio Verde SBK, a product of a multi-year collaboration wîth the FIM World Superbike Championship. Currently only 28 examples are destined for ÚK shores.

To mark the model's arrival in the ÚK, Alfa Romeo coordinated a thrilling, world first driving dare involving precision driver Paul Swift and British Superbike rider Chris 'The Stalker' Walker. Four wheels met two at Silverstone circuit in a challenging manoeuvre wîth Chris on a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike 'undertaking' Paul in the Alfa MiTo SBK wîth the car up on two wheels. As Paul took the Alfa MiTo SBK around the sweeping Brooklands corner, Chris throttled in on the inside line, building up enough speed to get the bike over and, for a brief moment, go under the chassis of the Alfa MiTo SBK before speeding out the other side to safety.

First revealed at the Paris Motor Show in 2012, the Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition combines Alfa's passion for style and elegance wîth the excitement and competitive edge of the FIM Superbike World Championship – for which Alfa Romeo is sponsor and safety car provider – to create a truly unique edition in the closest ever activation of the long-running partnership.

Powered by the revolutionary and award winning 1.4 Turbo MultiAir 170 bhp Quadrifoglio Verde engine, the head-turning Alfa MiTo SBK Limited Edition features SBK decals, racing body kit including side skirts and rear lower spoiler, complemented by 18' alloy wheels and red Brembo brake callipers for added dynamism.

The limited edition is available in Solid Black wîth an Alfa Red roof.

The motorsport inspired theme continues inside the cabin, wîth red stitched Sabelt® Alcantara® sports seats wîth carbon fibre backs (normally a £2000 option); sports pedals and red-stitched leather §teering wheel and gearstick; while an individually numbered SBK Limited Edition badge guarantees exclusivity and sits below the black carbon fibre-look dash. The Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition also features dual-zone air conditioning, Blue&Me™ (Bluetooth® hands-free system), cruise control, Alfa Active Suspension, rear parking sensors and much more for a sporty and comfortable driving experience.

The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition is priced at £21,595 on the road, which represents a customer saving of around £1,200 over the standard MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde fitted wîth the additional equipment.

Alfa Romeo enters its seventh year as a top WSBK sponsor in 2013, providing the official safety car to the championship.
