That' very nice. Like the colour very much, and the tan leather suits it very much.

MiTo

That works really rather well, though leaving the airbag cover and the lever to fold the seats black looks a bit naff.

Why the car hasn't had those darkened lights from the start is beyond me, it looks a million times better than the light ones. I saw a photo on Flickr the other day of a red (the 8C red, not Alfa Red or Giulietta Red) one parked behind a white one and actually mistook it for an 8C for a moment.

Alfas

Can't see any problem with this. The MiTo is a very good Alfa Romeo, and in this spec looks really nice.

And any initiative to get Alfa Romeo and Maserati working together is a good thing. I am hoping the new alignment will be good news for Alfa Romeo in these uncertain times.

I also think this is a great idea!

The Mito colour with the Maserati influence looks awesome..

Do you think they would sell this model?

it could be a new collaboration between maserati and alfa, like Aston Martin's toyota IQ (i.e. the Cygnet) which is aston's city car for rich people to reduce the CO2 production of aston's vehicle range. Maybe maserati could make more modifications to the mito such as tuned engine/suspension and diamonds embedded into the steering wheel.... just kidding.

Love that colour (especially with the right coloured leather! )

Such a shame that you can't order that blue, it's fab!

Just read the actual press release. Something tells me it was written by marketeers who have little actual knowledge of cars...

The MiTo for Maserati will also stand out due to its exceptional sporting performance. It is fitted as standard with 18 inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a sporty rear bumper and aluminium pedal unit.

MITO QV

Y'know, I like the MITO so much that I would (if I had it) part a lot of cash for a high-spec version of the car. I've got a Veloce, but I mean the whole shabang and the holy kabob. The more I look at those pics, the more I like it.

I remember when I first saw the MITO at the 2007 London Motor Show, they had the highest spec version there (with 15k paint-job) and it was beautiful.*

*It's a beautiful car no matter the spec, but it's one of those cars that looks attractive on a different scale when it's all 'poshed up'.

Mito 1.4 TB Lusso

Ooh, I do like that.

Though I would expect a decent courtesy car if I spent 80k+ on a motor. Wonder what they used previously?

Compelled me to go to the Maserati site. The GranTurismo looks fantastic. Pert, sultry and aggressive looking. A bit like the 8C, I thought. The replacement for the Maserati Coupe, I guess. Specced myself a nice metallic black one with red leather. Couldn't decide on brake caliper colour though. Too many choices. Plus why do they insist on putting massive analogue clocks on the dash? A bit caravan-esque, if you ask me.

And those are the reasons why I won't be buying one

MiTo M 1.4TB 206BHP

There are generally 2 x options for Courtesy Cars.

Option 1 - give the customer the worst possible C.Car so that they want to be in it less time and want to get back into their own car ASAP - they then love their own car more afterwards and the dealer can utilise their C.Cars much more and bring in other customers more quickly.

Option 2 - give the customer a much better car than their own car so that they may want to upgrade or change their car for one like the C.Car - unfortunately customers are then reluctant to give the dealer back the C.Car which means that other customers then have to wait longer for a C.Car.


Mangoletsi customers drive Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati & Ferrari cars and we offer a large fleet of Fiat 500, Alfa MiTo & Alfa GT Cloverleaf cars as customer Courtesy Cars - Most customers are happy with our C.Cars but we never have enough to satisfy customer demand.

That MiTo looks sweet - much more credible than that Aston Martin/Toyota thing.

If Alfa made that spec an option, I could see it selling - they could sell one to me for a start!
