Alfa Romeo MiTo (Cloverleaf) Quadrifoglio – Frankfurt catchupThu, 17 Sep 2009 00:00:00 -0700
The Alfa MiTo Cloverleaf unveiled at Frankfurt
The MiTo Cloverleaf gets a hot version of the Fiat 1.4 Multair engine, producing 170bhp and mated to a new six-speed ‘box specially designed to deliver swift gear changes. For some reason Alfa hasn’t released performance figures for the Quadrifoglio, but it should be pretty competitive. Fuel economy is distinctly reasonable at an average 49mpg.
The MiTo Cloverleaf gets Dynamic Suspension, which offers constantly controlled electronic shock absorbers to manage the MiTo’s dynamics. The Dynamic Suspension offers choice of three modes – Normal, All Weather and Dynamic to suit mood and conditions. And if it’s half as good as that on the normal MiTo’s it’s one of the best systems around.
A fine effort from Alfa, and if this is as hot as the MiTo is going to get we can live with it. All the bumph in the Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde Press Release.
Shame it’s not the GTA, though.
