The compact Alfa MiTo, suitable for those who look for performance and style in a car, is already the most appreciated Alfa Romeo model on the market today by young people and all the fans of the brand. An Italian car of great success means that long time Italian body styling firm Lester has chosen to expose its underlining commitment in the area of high performance styling and tuning by creating a new bodykit that aims to give the standard MiTo the aggressive looks of the forthcoming official GTA version at a fraction of the price.

For the Alfa MiTo, Lester has introduced an aesthetical kit with specific interventions in the bodywork and, at a chromatic level, the specialist has worked the front spoiler part of the car to finish the mesh sections by painting them in metallised anthracite. The MiTo kit provides several different styles of rear spoilers for the roof and racy side skirts in fibreglass that close off the body kit makeover of the car, perfectly joining the two axles.

The this revised production-ready kit was introduced at the My Special Car show in Rimini, and was a further evolution of the one first exposed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, presents a distinctive large air intake/outlet right in the centre of the bonnet as well as triangular air intakes located at the top of the front wings that are in the same style as the Alfa 8C Competizione sports car from which the MiTo drew its design inspiration. Moreover also included in the Lester kit is a new GTA concept-style rear diffuser into which is mounted a wide double tailpipe exhaust system arrangement, and the new lower spoiler/diffuser section comes complete with new round lights for the reverse and fog lamp functions and horizontal shaped reflectors.

Completing the Lester bodykit, this time inside, is a specific supporting Woofer Housing, in fibreglass, which is installed in the back compartment and which adapts itself to the position of the “hatbox” and to the closing of the whole compartment with the existing packing, with the aid of only 2 fixing screws in the points of origin of the block lock. The slot is arranged for woofers with diameter up to 320mm but the compartment is given closed in order to be utilised by all woofers with inferior diameter. The car shown in the photos is also equipped with wheels Mak Volare Mirror 7,5Jx18” fitted with Yokohama S.Drive 215x40R18 tyres, the reworked suspension is lowered an the work of H&R and the exhaust system with tailpipes down each side to fit the new diffuser is by Inoxcar. Lester also promises to supply a tuning power upgrade for the 1.4-litre turbo version.

The pricing of the Lester kit is as follows: front spoiler (138,00 euros), rear roof spoiler (96,00), rear roof spoiler - racing (136,00), adjustable rear spoiler without primer (95,00), adjustable rear spoiler (113,00), side skirts (148,00), bonnet vent (98,00), air intakes for front wings 2 pieces (98,00), rear air extracting device (142,00), rear air extracting device for double exhaust (152,00) and woofer housing (178,00).
