2010 Alfa Romeo MiTo Imola Edition - click above image for high-res gallery

We were saddened to learn that Alfa Romeo is under the impression that their cute yet handsome MiTo is too small for American consumption. But this feels like a slap in the face. Japan is getting 150 special Imola Edition MiTos, and man are they great looking. Painted in Imola Yellow, the cars also get 18-inch wheels, red brake calipers and chromed mirror caps to set them apart from regular MiTos. Inside features fancy Pelle Frau leather, Imola Yellow accents and a little plaque. The Imola Edition MiTos should hit the land of the rising sun in November of this year. There's precious little left to say, other than do want. Or is that unfair?

      Given the ignorant mentality of most Americans when it comes to cars, can you blame Alfa for not wanting to take the plunge?

        I hear you....and believe me...there are plenty of those types on this forum.

      Why is it a big slap in the face? Are those Japanese renowned for for their love of all things grotesquely big?

      If the MiTo is "too small" for the US, then what the hell is Fiat planning on selling here? Dodges with Fiat badges? Bring in the MiTo - keep the price on a par with the Mini and then try and keep them in stock!

      Tri-Spoke wheels! Hell yeah.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Really? I guess Advan still sells tri-spokes (nice ones, too) but I didn't know it was a Jap thing. I though it was those cheap companies in SCC magazine back in 1994 that solid brands like PRIME and PRIMAX and NEEPER. LOL...

      I live in Kamakura (Japan), probably I will see one of Mito Imola in my area there many nice and rare European car.
      I agree it's mistake that Mito isn't available.
