Alfa Mito SBK: The Undertaker: Alfa Romeo launches Mito Quadrifoglio Verde SBK Limited Edition with world first car & bike driving dare.
Alfa Romeo is launching a Limited Edition of the Alfa MiTo, the Quadrifoglio Verde SBK, a product of a multi-year collaboration with the FIM World Superbike Championship, for which Alfa Romeo is sponsor and Official Safety Car Provider.
To mark the model's arrival in the UK, Alfa Romeo coordinated a thrilling, world first driving dare, dubbed 'The Undertaker', involving precision driver Paul Swift and British Superbike rider Chris 'The Stalker' Walker.

Four wheels met two at a slippery Silverstone circuit in a challenging manoeuvre with Chris on a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike 'undertaking' Paul in the Alfa MiTo SBK with the car up on two wheels. As Paul took the Alfa MiTo SBK around the sweeping Brooklands corner, Chris throttled in on the inside line, building up enough speed to get the bike over and, for a brief moment, go under the chassis of the Alfa MiTo SBK before speeding out the other side to safety.
