The Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) edition of the 2014 Alfa Romeo MiTo, which was previously announced for the UK, is heading to Geneva, and the Italian carmaker has released more details ahead of its show debut.
The MiTo QV’s turbocharged 1.4 litre MultiAir petrol engine channels 170 hp at 5,500 rpm and 230 Nm at 2,500 rpm (Sport mode 250 Nm) to the front wheels through a six-speed Alfa TCT twin-dry clutch ‘box.
As a result, it does 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds before topping out just shy of 220 km/h. Combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions are quoted at 5.4 litres per 100 km and 124 grams per km respectively – 10 and 11% better than the previous MiTo QV, Alfa says.
The 2014 MiTo QV wears a roof spoiler, a sports rear bumper, 17-inch alloys, red Brembo brake callipers and QV logos on the front wings. The head and tail lamp frames, door mirror caps, door handles and front grille get a burnished look, while that body colour is an exclusive matte Magnesio Grey.
No interior pictures yet, but Alfa says the black interior contains a new moulded leather steering wheel with contrasting white stitching, QV logos in the instrument panel, a carbon-look Competizione dash and special mats.
Also black leather-wrapped are the handbrake lever (with white stitching), gear knob and gear boot (white and green stitching).
The list of standard kit includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control and a five-inch Uconnect touch-screen with TomTom navigation. Sabelt seats with wrap-around carbon fibre backs can be specified.
There will also be a QV Line pack for the Distinctive trim level – this will give you the sports rear bumper as well as all the burnished-look exterior and leather-wrapped interior items as above.
