Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA Concept officially previewed before Geneva

After all the teasers and information leaked on the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA Concept, Fiat has finally dropped three official images along with some detail before the concept’s 2009 Geneva Motor Show debut.

This is the first GTA (Gran Turismo Alleggerito) model since the Alfa 147 GTA but Alfa has given it all the right features including exceptional agility produced by a power-to-weight ratio and performance that is influenced by a supercar. However, Alfa Romeo makes sure that fuel-efficiency is still a part of the game. In its press release, Alfa says that while the MiTo GTA Concept car embodies the emotions of an Italian Gran Turismo, it also “embraces the principle of ‘downsizing’, guaranteeing reduced emissions and lower operating costs.”

Power is said to come from a 1.75L turbo-charged 4-cylinder pumping out an outstanding 240-hp. 0 to 60 mph and other specs will be made available closer to the cars Geneva debut. A production model of the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA Concept should arrive later this year.
