2014 Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglia Verde revealed
The range-topping 2014 Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde gets technical and cosmetic upgrades and lists from $30,500 (+ORC).
ALFA ROMEO HAS announced details of its 2014 MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde, which gets both cosmetic and technical upgrades over the 2013 model, although from its press release it’s not entirely clear what the technical improvements are.
The biggest difference between the previous MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde and this one is on the inside where there’s a new flat-bottomed leahter-wrapped steering wheel wit contrasting white stitching, the handbrake is the same (and we mean it gets leather and white stitching, not an, er, flat bottom). The dashboard is covered in ‘carbon look’ plastic, while the Quadrifoglio Verde model gets unique floor mats and aluminium kick plate (with Quadrifoglio Verde logos). The sports seats – height adjustable on the driver’s side and with lumbar adjustment for both front occupants – are trimmed in specific Quadrifoglio Verde fabric and finished with white-and-green stitching rounding out the revised interior (cosmetically-speaking anyway).
Also new for 2014, the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde gets Alfa Romeo’s Uconnect five-inch touchscreen multimedia system as standard, with Bluetooth connectivity, Text Reader, Audio Streaming, Voice Controls, MP3, USB and Aux-In.
On the outside, the MiTo QV’s exterior is distinguished by the burnished finish on the headlight surrounds, front grille, door mirrors; door handles and tail-light surrounds, as well as its rear spoiler, sports rear bumper, twin chrome exhaust pipes, 18-inch alloy wheels, red Brembo brake callipers and the unmistakable Quadrifoglio Verde emblem on the front wings.
Under the bonnet is a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 125kW (at 5500rpm) and 250Nm (at 2500rpm). This is mated to a six-speed manual an d fuel consumption is just 6.0L/100km. It’ll go from 0-100km/h in just 7.5 seconds. Priced from $30,500 (+ORC), the Alfa Romeo MiTo QV is on-sale now.
