Alfa Romeo Prepares 46-Unit Limited Edition MiTo RIAR

Since the newly-released MiTo has millions of fans all over the world, Alfa Romeo thought it would be a great idea to pay a tribute to RIAR (Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo) for its 46 years of life by launching a special limited-edition MiTo that would incorporate several exclusive elements. As the RIAR official website mentions, the 45-unit limited series will arrive in the next few weeks but will be exclusively available to members of RIAR so, in case you're not a member of the club, it's almost impossible to get one of these.

“Alfa Romeo decided to honour RIAR's 46-year history and brand loyalty by presenting the MiTo RIAR, a RIAR concept Alfa readily embraced thanks to Andrea Vecchi, a member of both the Alfa Romeo Marketing and our association,” RIAR said in a press statement.

First of all, the car comes in a stylish black exterior color (Nero Cattivo or Nero Etna) with perfectly matching headlights and
17-inch forged rims with black accents. The brake calipers have been painted in red, while the interior can be ordered in full black or burgundy leather.

And since we're talking about the interior, it features a remarkable amount of exclusive parts, including the digitally controlled two-zone automatic air conditioning, the sport seats, the carbon look dashboard plus a metal RIAR logo mounted on the steering wheel.

The standard MiTo engine is now capable of providing a maximum power of 170 hp, instead of the initial 155 hp output. The car also features rear spoiler, fog lights and parking sensors.

Each of the 46 units of the MiTo Limited Edition will be priced at 20,000 euros, making this limited series a bit more expensive than the newly-introduced diesel and gasoline engines which, according to the Italian carmaker, are particularly focused on fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
