Alfa MiTo Veloce - Click above to view in high resolution

The Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last month certainly looked the business, but unfortunately, it's only a concept car -- for now. Alfa says they'll have it on the market soon, but in the meantime the Italian automaker unveiled another hot version of the premium sport hatch at the AutoRAI show in Amsterdam, Holland.

Although some details and teaser shots surfaced before the show kicked off, the Fiat group didn't release any new information on its latest sporty MiTo, so all we have to go on are reports circulating the interwebs. This is what we know: it's called the Veloce, and slots in between the current 155hp 1.4-liter turbo of the fully-spec'ed standard MiTo and the 240hp GTA with a 180 horsepower turbo four. It's also packing beefier brakes, a revised suspension, and an upgraded body kit including a front splitter, rear wing and side skits, plus big powder-coated white rims with matching white mirror caps and detailing. Sport seats and aluminum pedals round out the package on the inside, but until Alfa gets some official info out there, that's all we got.

      Nice looking car. Since FIAT owns Alfa, and FIAT will have a major stake in Chrysler, if we ever see this car in the US, it will be uglified as a new Neon.

      if they price it the same or less (and they probably will) as the Cooper S, we'll have a car which, being only 30 cm longer, can seat 5 REAL adults, carry REAL luggage and is more powerful..not to mention a lot cooler.

      DO IT ALFA

        Sorry but it won't seat five. Four at a pinch, but not comfortably. It may be a bit bigger than a MINI, but not much. It is lovely though, and looks great in white and red, and blue. And it is a bit different which helps.

      Guys, this is NOT an official version (Not yet, at least)
      It's just a special show-version created for AutoRAI, perhaps from dutch importer
      Of course, this COULD become an official version, but at the moment there are no plans to take it to the market (While GTA will be released for sure, it's justa a matter of time)
