Alfa Romeo Mito Audrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition undertaking with Kawasaki

Alfa Romeo stages undertaking to show off new MiTo Quadrifoglio

The new Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition was designed in collaboration with the FIM World Superbike Championship and to mark the new model's arrival in the United Kingdom, an awesome stunt called "undertaking" was performed with the car on the Silverstone circuit.

The photo says it all. To stage the limited edition import to the United Kingdom of this new car from Alfa Romeo, precision driver Paul Swift got into the new MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK and British Superbike rider Chris The Stalker Walker jumped on a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja and the two coordinated an "undertaking" maneuver, as shown.

This extreme "don't try this at home" move is one of those awesome things that you'll only rarely see done, even on film or at stunt shows, and is the perfect way to showcase this car that will only see 28 units sold in the UK. The event took place on the Silverstone circuit. On the Brooklands corner, Swift cornered and lifted the car onto two wheels at which point the trailing motorcycle was given throttle by The Stalker, who pulled underneath the tilted car on the inside corner and sped ahead. You can see this in the video below.

That MiTo Verde would be a perfect addition next to my Milano Verde. Of course, if it was electric, it would be even better but I'm not holding my breath.
