    I was looking at the rear seat entrance and head room. That is one reason why Fiat is not taking off around here any way. There are smalll cars here though, Kia and Nissan.

    I think that was the Alfa Romeo Mito GTA It was close to production but with the demise of smaller cars selling they put the project on hold. 2009-166568-alfa-romeo-mito-gta-in-geneva1.jpg

    I like that, need some affodable fun in the market. At one time Chrysler corp was a leader in that field till the European companies stole it.

    Who said small vehicles don't sell, big one for the hardware store trips and a small one for supermarket trips, hatch is the best. I sure miss my Neon, 11 years old when I traded it in, ran like a top.

    How affordable was it? Small doesn't mean cheap in Europe!

    Mito wasn't an "affordable" car: it was sold at the top of the B-segment, cheaper than an Audi A1, around the same as a MINI, but more than a mainstream car like Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa or Fiat Punto. The GTA version, had it been launched, would have been more expensive again.

    The photo on page 1, however, is not a Mito. The front is too wide and too square, and the whole vehicle is too tall (look at the height of the stand behind the car that the "FCA" card is resting on). Also, FCA didn't exist until 2014, by which time Mito GTA had been cancelled.

    Perhaps this is Tonale?

    Ditto... I was thinking about trading in my Durango in the next year or two for an SRT or Hellcat Durango. But I don't want to trade her in and look at essentially the same vehicle for the next 4-5 years. So I decided to just add a Supercharger and then get a hot-hatch..... Looking at 2014-15 Fiat 500 Abarth's.... Only about 12/13k with 50k on the clock.

    7.3 s for 0-62 mph.

    But GTA would be a totally different car. Not much commonalities to a regular MiTo. AFAIK Philippe Krief was responsible for MiTo GTA development.

    7.3 is good given the price, assuming good cornering and a reasonably nice interior.

    The Alfa Romeo MiTo was developed to go in competition with Mini John Cooper Worls and Renault Clio RS.

    It had only two seats, carbon fiber roof, rear spoiler, parts of external mirros and in other parts of the car.
    Some aluminium parts for some parts of the body and some parts of the suspensions.
    Stiffened chassis.
    Brembo dual cast iron/aluminium calipers (same technology used in Giulia Quadrifoglio) and monoblock four pistons brakes
    Sealed underbody, redone exhaust system to have a working rear extractor (not just fo design).
    1750 TBi engine (the cast iron block version that after went in the Alfa Romeo 4C, at the time in the 159).
    Actine control suspensions and Alfa DNA system (change of mapping tune of the car: dynamic, natural and all weather).

    Maximum speed 250 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds.

    Presented at Geneva motor show in march 2009.
