Alfa Romeo MiTo concept

The Italian brand Alfa Romeo continuously works on super cars which represent the true essence of a sports car, according to the brand's values: performance, Italian style and technical excellence aimed at maximum driving pleasure in total safety. One of these cars is the Alfa Romeo MiTo. The vehicle is a three-door luxurious supermini officially introduced on June 19, 2008. Now, Alfa Romeo and Marshall Amplification teamed up and designed a new concept for the MiTo.

The Alfa Romeo MiTo concept envisioned by the Italian company and Marshall Amplification is a one-off model that is going to be showcased in Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary. The concept is distinguished by a black exterior with gold accents and Marshall badging. The concept has also received red brake calipers, chrome exhaust tips and a set of18-inch alloy wheels. Since Marshall Amplification is involved, the entire concept wears an amplifier inspired style.

The Alfa Romeo MiTo concept features gold accents, special floor mats, Marshall branded sill plates and a Shure SH55 microphone that replaces the common gear knob. Other notable elements are the aluminum pedals, a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system and a Marshall amp and two 12 inch speakers in the boot. The vehicle is powered by a 1.6-liter JTDM-2 engine that outputs 120 bhp (88 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. It allows the standard MiTo to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 9.9 seconds, before reaching a maximum speed of 198 km/h (123 mph). The concept looks awesome and the music lovers will certainly like it.
