It was reported earlier this week that Fiat had decided to put the MiTo GTA on hold and was considering canceling the project altogether. According to AutoCar, Alfa Romeo is now playing down reports on the MiTo GTA being cancelled and says that no decision has been made about the model’s future.
An Alfa spokesman said that the car has always been a concept and has yet to be given the green light for production.
“There are question marks about the project but there is an unashamed keenness to get the green light,” the spokesman told AutoCar.
However, even if Alfa does confirm the MiTo GTA for production, the car is unlikely to hit showrooms until late next year. Originally, the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA was scheduled to go on sale before the end of this year. Power comes from a 1.75L turbo-charged 4-cylinder pumping out an outstanding 240-hp.
