Alfa Romeo preparing MiTo concept for AutoRAI show

Alfa Romeo Mito concept fq

At next month’s AutoRAI tuning show (April 1st through 11th), Alfa Romeo will wheel out another racy MiTo concept to display the hatch’s tuning potential. The Alfa Romeo MiTo Veloce is packing the stock turbocharged 1.4-litre unit, but output has been increased to around 180 hp through some secret tweaks and the 0-100 kph time has dropped to 7.5 seconds. Koni shocks have been fitted on all corners along with a custom set of wheels, and the exterior gets glammed up with a new carbon fibre front diffuser and graphics package.

It’s not quite as extreme as the MiTo GTA unveiled in Geneva, but its further proof that Alfa’s hatch has plenty to offer hot hatch enthusiasts.
