Alfa Romeo MiTo Veloce - Click above for a gallery

At next month's AutoRAI tuning show (April 1st through 11th), Alfa Romeo will trot out yet another racy MiTo concept to show off the hatch's tuning potential. The Alfa Romeo MiTo Veloce is packing the stock turbocharged 1.4-liter, but output has been increased to around 180 hp through some yet-to-be disclosed tweaks and the 0-62 mph time has dropped to 7.5 seconds. Koni shocks have been fitted at all four corners along with a custom set of wheels, and the exterior gets tarted up with a new carbon fiber front diffuser and graphics package. It's not quite as extreme as the MiTo GTA we saw in Geneva, but its further proof that the lil' hatch has plenty of potential if it ever makes it to U.S. shores.

      the Autorai is a "regular" car show, not a tuning show.

      My local Alfa dealer tells me that the MiTo will never make it to the US because it wasn't engineered for our crash requirements. Has anyone heard differently?

      Does it come standard with the duct tape holding up the carbon fiber front diffuser? (Pic 3)
