Click above to view the Alfa MiTo GTA engine teaser sketches

Alfa Romeo has been pretty tight-lipped about the MiTo GTA in the lead-up to its unveiling at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, but in addition to a couple of engine sketches, it's finally released a full-on teaser of the new hot hatch. The styling continues to draw inspiration from the 8C Competizione, incorporating a few more elements of the supercar into the three-door's front fascia, and the revised stance and upgraded wheels give it a considerably more sporting appearance.

With around 240 hp coming from the 1.8-liter turbocharged four, the MiTo GTA promises to offer a compelling alternative to the MINI Cooper JCW at a competitive price and with Alfa's trademark Italian flair. Stay tuned as Swiss time is running out before the doors open at the Geneva Palexpo next month.

      i WANT one!

      I can't decide if I like this car or not, from this angle and in this color this car looks amazing; however, from other angles(and in red) the design looks very fussy.

      Alfas should look fierce and sporty, not cutesy like the Mini. The MiTo is just not fitting with Alfa Romeo's design language, and the front fascia looks tacked on and is just plain ugly.

        Really? The old Alfa Sud from the 1970's hardly looked aggressive, yet was enormously popular and remained in production for almost two decades.

      DO WANT!

      Seriously, 240hp in a 2400lb car? that spells fun times to me.

      So no-one seems to have mentioned how damn hot this car looks yet?

      It's cute?

      It's adorable?

      It's a quiet little car?

      Come on, let's be honest... This is a Hot Hatch killer in a tight bikini, holding two guns, and saying "who wants to get a little dirty?".

      This car is HOT.

        I disagree.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Hot is the 8C.

        THIS IS ADORABLE

      Just when I've resigned myself to wanting a 500 Cabrio, you guys start showing the Mito again and I'm hooked. Fifth Gear's head-to-head with the Mini in this last episode was entertaining enough, but lacking in details about the Alfa.

      Bet you Americans can't wait for this to land stateside...

      ...as a Chrysler? :)

      Seriously, one hot, hot, and yes, cute, car. With bite that would surprise people at junctions. :)
