Good post Marco, hopefully this will be available in the Aussi market.

What happened to the Mi.To release in the UK in January, was it postponed ?  And is the Aussi launch still going ahead mid year?

Cheers.

The MiTo is on sale in the UK.  There is a nice 24 page brochure available to download.

You can also download MiTo specs and an accessories brochure at the following link, along with brochures for the rest of the range.

To make us all feel worse, here is a link to the UK range pricelist.  The MiTo starts at only 10,139.36 over there.  Seriously.

I don't know when the planned release date is for Australia (I am not that well connected with people in the know).  Speculation is for a mid-2009 local release but the crummy economic outlook may spoil that, as it has done for Alfa's planned return to the US market (now delayed until 2011.

Is that a GTAM 105 behind it, or a GTA?  Attached another pic for a better view. 

I like the redhead.  On the engine.

Chocolate fish to the first person who says 'I wish that girl wasn't there so I could see the rear wheelarch' - and means it.

It took a while, but I was really intriqued to see the seat adjustment on the MiTO GTA.  Finally found it.

i wish that girl wasn't wearing the dress, the view of the rear wheel arch would be much less obstructed.

Was anyone able find a version of this shot, taken from a higher angle?  The reflection off the floor would have provided a finer view up the arch.

Cheers,
