Alfa Romeo have released an exclusive version of its MiTo for the Frankfurt Motor Show to be known as the Quadrifoglio Verde.
This white hot, four-leaf clover version of the already sporty hatch aims to “redefine sportiness” while at the same time placing a new emphasis on the environment.
Powered by Alfa’s 1.4-litre MultiAir TBi engine the Quadrifoglio Verde delivers 126kW to ensure sub seven second 0-100km/h times. The engine will be mated to a C635 six-speed gearbox developed by Fiat.
Fuel economy returns are a low 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres (combined) while CO2 emissions are a relatively low 139 g/km.
Alfa Romeo says this package provides “a new kind of sportiness that combines maximum driving pleasure with improved environmental qualities.”
The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde will also be fitted standard with a new version of Alfa’s dynamic suspension, jointly developed with Magneti Marelli.
The tri-mode package (normal/all-waether/dynamic) will feature electronic dampers that actively and continuously adjust to vehicle speed and road conditions to provide optimum comfort, agility and safety.
Accenting the car’s tough looks are 17-inch alloy wheels inspired by those from the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione.
The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde is finished exclusively in titanium coloured paint.
