(from Alfa Romeo Press Release)  SBK Special Series

Available with all the engines in the range - except for the 1.4 70 HP and 1.4 170 HP petrol engine - the new SBK Special Series offers several of the aesthetic features of the Limited Edition version. On the outside, the peculiarities of this version include 16" titanium alloy rims, chrome-plated spoiler and exhaust, mirror fairings in the shade of titanium, sporty rear bumper, black fog light frame and the new titanium "SBK" logo placed on the rear of the car. The aggressive look of the MiTo SBK Special Series is enhanced by four body colours - black, Alfa red, Tornado blue and Cristallo white - combined with three roof shades: black, Alfa red and the brand-new Cristallo white.

The same racing spirit is found on the inside with the "SBK" logo on front head restraints and the black "carbon look" dashboard. Standard equipment includes manual climate control system, radio with CD/MP3 player and leather steering wheel.

The MiTo SBK Special Series can be customised further with the original SBK kit that includes some of the features of the Limited Edition version: "SBK Limited Edition" sticker, side skirts, rear dam, racing pedal board, red brake calipers and 17'' or 18" titanium-finished alloy rims.

The MiTo SBK Special Series on shown in Paris is powered by a Turbo TwinAir 85 HP engine, an example of the very best motor engineering in terms of technology, performance and eco-friendliness. The two-cylinder "International Engine of the Year 2011" delivers 85 HP at 5500 rpm of top power and a torque of 145 Nm at 2000 rpm.

In detail, the revolutionary Turbo TwinAir engine uses MultiAir technology combined with specific fluid dynamics optimised for maximum fuel efficiency. The adoption of the turbocharger results in excellent performance and, above all, great flexibility and response, with all torque available from 2000 rpm and constant up to 3500 rpm.

The new engine therefore stands out for its excellent performance that translates into response, thrills and fun at the wheel, but where TwinAir technology really takes the lead is in reducing consumption. By using the Start & Stop device and the smart alternator, the MiTo with TwinAir engine has the lowest value of CO2 emissions with petrol engines in its segment: 98 g/km. This means a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and emissions (up to 30% less than an engine with equal performance). In fact, it's a petrol engine with the fuel consumption and running costs of a diesel engine. It's the perfect engine for urban driving, with low consumption but capable of great performance and vigour in more challenging situations at the same time.

Finally, it is well worth mentioning that only on Alfa Romeo MiTo does this innovative engine continuously interact with the Alfa DNA dynamic selector allowing to select which of the two personalities of the engine to enhance. With a simple flip of the switch, the driver can select more performance (Dynamic) or more cost-effective running (Natural). Depending on the position selected, the calibration of the engine control unit varies, with a 35 Nm reduction in torque (from 145 in Dynamic mode to 110 Nm in Natural mode).
