Alfa Romeo has taken the wraps off their MiTo by Marshall concept.
Set to debut at an invitation-only screening of Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary, the one-off model was jointly developed with Marshall Amplification and echoes their popular amplifiers. As a result, the car has a black exterior with gold accents and Marshall badging. The concept has also been equipped with red brake calipers, chrome exhaust tips and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The amplifier-inspired styling continues in the cabin as the seats are upholstered in the same materials used on Marshall’s amplifiers. There's also gold accents, special floor mats, Marshall branded sill plates and a Shure SH55 microphone that acts as a gear knob. Other notable highlights include aluminum pedals, a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system and a Marshall amp and two 12 inch speakers in the boot.
Power is provided by a 1.6-liter JTDM-2 engine that produces 120 bhp (88 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the standard MiTo to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 198 km/h (123 mph).
