Retro hot-hatch: the Alfa MiTo GTA


Alfa Romeo's high-performance small car, the MiTo GTA is a welcome addition to the scene. A close-to-production version of the new top model is to be presented at the Geneva Auto Salon, with the series production model possibly hitting the market sometime this year. The front-wheel drive concept car is powered by a 240bhp, 1.75-litre turbocharged engine and the active suspension automatically adjusts its absorption to suit the prevailing road conditions. Optically, the top model of this three-door retro hot-hatch can be identified by its side air vents, roof spoiler and new front end, where the badge has been moved from the radiator grill to the bonnet.
