Here we have a tuning kit for the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA that is made by the Fiat electronics division and major OEM supplier Magneti Marelli. They have manufactured everything from ECUs to headlights, and worked with Microsoft and Ford with the development of the Sync and Blue&Me car computer systems. The scope of the company even reaches out to constructing the Kinetic Energy Recovery System for Ferrari models, as well as electronics found on almost every car in production today. Now the company is launching its own tuning division called Magneti Marelli Elaborazioni, with their first kit for the the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA called the Kit-One.
This Alfa MiTo tuning package consists of lowering springs to drop the car 30 mm, along with a Parco Chiuso dual tipped high performance exhaust system. Large 305 mm Brembo disk brakes help slow the Alfa, and the competition tuning ECU adds an extra 31 horsepower. For the exterior styling, Magneti Marelli hooked up the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA with 18-inch matte black wheels and a unique body kit constructed by Carrozzeria Castagna Milano, of which only 200 kits will be made. All these items can be purchased separately from the individual tuning companies, and with their new facility being built in Auburn Hills, Michigan, I wouldn’t be surprised to see modified Chryslers, Dodges, and Jeeps in the future.
