    Alfa MiTo GTA

    What about this small racer. They packed 230bhp in this light weight car with front wheel drive, and just look at it:

    I think that right headlight just winked at me!  Smiley Smiley

    I owned two small front-drive Alfas in the old days when they rusted away faster than the mechanical parts could fail. In spite of that, I still have a soft spot  for them. Smiley

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    one more thing, is it going to be a 6 cylinder engine?, if so it will remind me a golf r32, and this is very very good !!!!

    edit: ok I read its a 1.8L turbo charged engine, so its a direct competitor of a mini JCW Cooper S.....I hope they have designed a throaty sound at least, I would have loved a 6 cylinder engine with no turbo chargers, just atmospheric like the r32....I thought it was going to be 6 cylinder when i read the terminology of GTA !! Smiley

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    Wow - I like the look. Especially the rear looks amazing! Great exhausts!

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    from what I know it is going to be a 1,6 litre with a big turbo for those 230hp!! Idon´t like that much the looks... a bit tuning for my taste... but... I like this car. I hope the price will not be that high!

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    I love that car!  But I love the 500 Abarth too!  Lets see how they compare when some test drive results come our way.  I would like to get a small car towards the end of the year.  Maybe the new Polo GTI will be available by then too.

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    Seems like there is a whole bunch of small and HOT cars coming around at Geneva.

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    Italian cars have always been performing below their on-paper specifications, from Fiats to Alfa Romeo to Ferraris.

    Moreover, even the better Italian cars have at least one huge weakness (it could be the ride, torque steer, reliability etc) in spite of other good points.

    The above have been true since I can remember. So don't expect too much from a GTA or an Abarth moniker.

    theres just something about Alfas. Smiley

    Yes they have an illustrious history and heritage. Until the late 60s they were the epitome of the affordabe and charismatic sports saloon or coupe. Unfortunately for them they were taken over by Fiat and they became Fiat clones with front wheel drive. BMW became the new Alfa in the 70s and look where they are now.

    Alfa has been trying to ressurrect its previous glory over the last 10-15 years. Products have improved significantly but they are nowhere near what BMW and VW/Audi offer.

    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    Well, I have driven and owned some Alfas, and they all had their own little problems. From completely wrong translation ("Moglicherweis Eis auf die Fahrbahn") to annoying warnings.

    You love the car anyway, they offer most fun and beauty for that price. I still have switched to Audi though...


    Re: Alfa MiTo GTA

    I have to admit what regino is saying....

     I`ve never had a negative image of Alfa Romeo, but its build quality and reliability in engine department, has always been a failed subject for most of the models of this trademark...

     Talking from my personal opinion, my mother used to have a bran new 147, I was just about 14-15 years old, so this was long ago, and I still have the image in my head, of me running for a fire-extinguisher in the garage, to avoid the engine to get into flames, my mother shouting, and the car was completely brand new !!!!!, the car was dark red, and finished into blames, with all the hood in snow white due to the fire-extinguisher Smiley

    but well, may be the Mito is as good as it looks !!!!, its definately a car I will have in mind for the very near future !!
