The World Superbike Championship will arrive in France at the former F1 hosting Magny-Cours track in just over a week's time for its penultimate round of the season and to celebrate the MiTo's status as the official Safety Car of the international motorcycle racing series, Alfa Romeo France is launching a special limited edition of the hatchback.

The resulting Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition will be restricted to 150 units. Based on the range-topping Quadrifoglio Verde version, the new special edition has been given extra distinction by incorporating equipment from the MiTo's option catalogue as standard.

On the outside these enhancements comprise of black inserts for the spoiler cut outs and fog lamp surrounds that help give the MiTo a wider visual stance as well as the triangular wing-mounted 'Quadrifolglio Verde' badges finished in the brushed aluminium option while the door mirror housings and the door handles are in a satin chrome finish.

Inside, the leather/Alcantara seats (with carbon-fibre frames) feature two-tone stitching (white and green) and this detailing is continued on the steering wheel, gear leaver gaiter and handbrake lever. There are also aluminium sport pedals, floor mats with green stitching and tinted rear windows for increased privacy as well as a special "Limited Edition" numbered plate inserted into the central console. Improved standard equipment includes rain and dusk sensors and the Blue&Me infotelematic package with steering wheel controls.

The Magneti Marelli variable-response electronic dampers are fitted as standard; these aim to improve the MiTo's ride comfort while retaining the B-segment hatchback's current handling characteristics and work in synch with VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control).

The MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition will cost 26,500 euros in the showrooms with 150 units to be created. It will only be sold on the French market. The value of the additional equipment added to this edition that comes as standard tots up to 4,900 euros meaning that the customer will be saving 800 euros over the price of the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde on this market which stands at 22,400 euros.
