"Alfa Romeo CEO Luca de Meo first confirmed details about the upcoming GTA variant of the ultra-stylish MiTo hatch as far back as June 2008, revealing the car would arrive in the middle of this year packing a brand new 1.8L four-cylinder petrol engine turbocharged to the tune of 230hp (172kW). Today the first image of the car has leaked onto the web.
The photo reveals a MiTo with an aggressive front end, mesh coverings at the air intakes, a performance-styled lower body kit, and aggressively sized multi-spoke alloy wheels. The package brings out the resemblance to its big sister, the 8C Competizione."
