Alfa Romeo Reveals Mito SBK Editions

Special Edition

SBK Limited Edition and Superbike Special Series to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show to mark Alfa's partnership with the Superbike racing series.

Alfa Romeo will pull the covers off a pair of new models next week, with the Mito SBK Limited Edition and Mito Superbike Special Series set to make their world premiere at the Paris Motor Show. Both models were built to mark the Italian marque's sponsorship of the Superbike championship. The SBK Limited Edition will be limited to 200 models and offered in Black and Alfa Red, which can be matched to three roof and mirror cap shades, namely black, Alfa Red and new Cristallo white.

It will be further distinguished by a grey-colored decal running from the front grille to the C-pillar, a new aero package and 18-inch titanium-finish alloys combined with red Brembo brake calipers. Inside, a host of accessories have been added including Sabelt seats with a wraparound carbon-fiber backrest and Alcantara center sections, a sporty aluminum pedal unit, leather-trimmed gear shifter and steering wheel, and a numbered plaque on the dash. Alfa's 1.4-liter turbocharged four, the most powerful engine in the Mito lineup, will power the special edition model.
