Two superbike-inspired Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK special editions for Paris

Two superbike-inspired Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK special editions have been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. The cars are built to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s involvement in the world superbike series.

The first is the awkwardly titled Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK Limited Edition 1.4 170 HP QV Special Series. Limited to 200 cars, the SBK is based on the top-spec MiTo Cloverleaf, and gets special 18-inch titanium alloys, Brembo brakes and an active suspension system which electronically varies the damper stiffness according to road conditions automatically

An uprated interior is also included, and buyers get the choice of black or red exterior paint, with contrasting black, red or white roofs.

Alfa Romeo has also shown the MiTo SBK Special Series, which can be had with all engines in the range except the 1.4-litre petrols and gets 16-inch alloys, a chrome-plated spoiler and a new rear bumper.
