The Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK will be limited to just 28 in the UK

The Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition has arrived in the UK. However, just 28 examples are destined to be sold here.

The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK is the product of Alfa’s continued support of the FIM Superbike World Championship – for which Alfa Romeo has been the sponsor for the last seven years. Alfa Romeo also provides the official safety car for the championship.

Launched at the Paris Motor Show last year, the new MiTo Limited Edition is powered by the turbocharged 170bhp 1.4-litre MultiAir engine.

It features SBK decals, a racing body kit including bigger side skirts and a rear spoiler; 18-inch alloys and red-painted Brembo brake callipers.

Inside, the MiTo features red-stitched Sabelt Alcantara upholstered sports seats with carbon-fibre backs, which are normally a £2,000 optional extra. There are also sports pedals and a red-stitched leather covered steering wheel and gearstick.

Each MiTo SBK features an individually numbered SBK Limited Edition badge, while all cars also include air conditioning, the Blue&Me Bluetooth hands-free system, cruise control, Alfa Active Suspension, and rear parking sensors.

The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition is only available in Solid Black with an Alfa Red roof, and is priced at £21,595.

Fiat claims that this represents a saving of around £1,200 over the standard MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde - which is priced from £18,760 - fitted with the additional equipment.

If I want a "sbk" I'd get a Ducati 1199 or an Aprillia RSV4, not a fiat punto in drag.

Good God, that's hideous. I always found Alfa cars like marmite. Some I loved and some I hated (designs). The Brera for example, I found ugly, so too the Giulietta. But the Mito is one of the ugliest cars in the while.

Don't know why Alfa dropped the 159. I really liked that car. :/

They should have kept a loss-making car just for you.

Brera and Giulietta ugly? You need help.

You seriously need help! All Alfas are beautiful. I drive a 159 and love every second in it.... People who comment here have not even owned an Alfa.... My alfa still commands admiring glances and occasional enquiries from keen people....

while i agree with you that all alfas are just amazing, this one not so much. mainly coz of that stupid stripe... but thats just tastes at the end of the day.

Haha you people mistake me. Don't get me wrong, I love Alfa too. But I think that the Giulietta looks a little off from the front (too much like the MiTo) and the Brera from the rear. If it was something like a Brera face and Giulietta ass, It would be perfect.. in my opinion!!! Obviously things like looks are subjective.

That said, I am looking forward to the 4C, although I imagine it will be pretty expensive.. so if I can get one it will probably be the upcoming Spider.. hopefully it is a simple and fun car like the MX-5 but with that Alfa flair :)

Eurojunk that makes no money!
