Legend has it that shortly before the 1923 Targa Florio motor race in Sicily, Alfa Romeo driver Udo Sivocci found a four leaf clover by the roadside. He persuaded his team to paint a Quadrifoglio Verde symbol on his Alfa Romeo RL for good luck. He won the race, scoring Alfa Romeo’s first major international victory. From that day on, the cloverleaf (Quadrifoglio Verde) symbol has appeared on Alfa Romeo racing cars and some production cars around the world
The Alfa Romeo Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde (Cloverleaf) has the style, performance and safety features to be my lucky charm. Powered by a 170 HP 1.4-litre Turbo MultiAir engine, the MiTo SBK Limited Edition goes from 0 to 60 MPH in about 7 seconds, all the while returning 49 MPG with relatively low CO2 emissions (139 g/km). A carbon fiber dashboard, red stitched Sabelt Alcantara sports seats, 17 inch satin titanium finished wheels and rear parking sensors would make anyone feel lucky to own this MiTo from one of Italy’s iconic makers of cars.
