Alfa Romeo MiTo Sprint launches

Alfa Romeo MiTo Sprint

The patriotically-painted Alfa Romeo MiTo SprintAlfa Romeo reveals the limited edition Alfa MiTo Sprint in a choice of Red, White or Blue. It celebrates Alfa’s ongoing support for UK Athletics (UKA).Today we have yet another limited edition – the Alfa Romeo MiTo Sprint – which Alfa has ostensibly put together to celebrate its ongoing support of UK Athletics. Which does at least makes a change from following the herd.

This year, that would have meant the Alfa MiTo Black. Oh, wait. Alfa already did the ‘MiTo Black’ last year with the Alfa MiTo Turismo Sport.

This time we get a choice of patriotic colours – Red, White or Blue – or, to be more specific, Alfa Red, Biancospino White or Tornado Blue. Fair tugs at your heartstrings, that Union Jack-inspired colour palette. Or reminds you of the Italian job.

The usual premise applies with the ‘Limited Edition’ Alfa Romeo MiTo – extra kit for less than the options-list price. So you get £1,500 of extras which include Cruise, Blue&Me with Voice, leather wheel and gear knob and multi-function wheel.

Toys for the outside of the MiTo Sprint include a set of 16″ alloys, set of fogs and a rear spoiler plus the required ‘Sprint’ badges splatted around the place.

There’s a choice of oily bits, with either the 1.4 16V 95 at £13,295 or the .4 TB MultiAir 135 bhp with ALFA TCT auto ‘box at £16,395 if you want petrol, or the 1.3 JTDM-2 95 bhp at £14,845 if you want an oil-burner.

All of which seems a perfectly decent deal for a cracking little supermini. With the usual caveat that the toys float your boat.

It looks like Alfa are trying to put buyers off haggling a deal on the MiTo Sprint by offering some decent finance deals, which as the APR is very sensible we’ve published below.
