Alfa Romeo MiTo tuned by Novitec
Very few know about this, but the Alfa Romeo MiTo is available in the UAE. It costs as much as an SUV, but it is not worth the price at all when it comes to performance. It looks like European tuner Novitec had the same idea, and gave the dorky MiTo a boost.
The turbocharged 1.4-litre 4-cylinder engine gains 31 hp and 30 Nm of torque with a Novitec PowerJet ECU tune. The 186 hp Novitec MiTo can then sprint from zero to 100 kph in 7.4 seconds, about 0.7 seconds faster.
The MiTo package is complemented by a stylised body kit with skirts, bumpers and a rear spoiler. Also available are silver or black 18-inch wheels, exhaust system and a height-adjustable coil-over suspension that can lower the car anywhere from 35 mm to 65 mm.
