2010 Alfa Romeo MiTo Imola Edition

Alfa Romeo MiTo won't be released in the United States because it is too small for this particular market. And that's not all. Alfa Romeo seems to be more focused on non-US markets when it comes to its MiTo model, as the company has just launched a brand new limited edition, exclusively addressed to Japanese buyers.

As you can see in the adjacent photos, the car is painted in Imola Yellow and comes with several exterior styling enhancements, including 18-inch wheels, red brake calipers and chromed mirror caps. Inside, the new MiTo boasts Pelle Frau leather, Imola Yellow accents and a tiny identification plaque at the bottom of the center console.

The car is expected to arrive in November, with pricing details yet to be unveiled.

a spokesman for Alfa Romeo was quoted as saying by back in July.
