Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK Limited Edition

The Paris Motor Show will host a lot of premieres. Alfa Romeo will be there too, revealing the MiTo SBK Limiter Edition powered by a 1.4-liter engine capable of developing 170 horsepower QV, and the MiTo Superbike Special Series. These two models were developed as a celebration of the sponsorship of the carmaker of the Superbike championship. Let us turn our attention toward the Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK Limited Edition. Apparently, only 200 units will see the light of the day.


The ones interested in the Alfa Romeo Mito SBK model should know that the carmaker is offering two colors for the body, black of Alfa red. These two can be matched to three roof and exterior mirror cap shades. Here they have black, Alfa red and Cristallo white. There is a gray-colored decal that starts from the front grille to the C-pillar for more accents. To send the power to the road, the carmaker has offered 18-inch titanium alloy rims and to handle the power, the engineers have provided red Brembo brake calipers. In terms of interior, Alfa Romeo designers provided a lot of different accessories like Sabelt seats that feature wraparound carbon fiber backrest, Alcantara center sections, leather for the gear lever knob and steering wheel and also a numbered plaque on the dashboard.


The SBK Limited Edition is available with a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces enough power to enable the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a bit more than 7.0 seconds. The fuel consumption reaches the 4.8 liter / km mark and the Co2 emission level indicates 139 g/km. For the customers that want to offer mode to their MiTo can ask for the SBK kit that includes the SBK Limited Edition sticker, racing pedal board, side skirts, 17- or 18-inch titanium-finished alloy rims and red brake calipers.
