The model equipped with the 1.4 MultiAir engine receives 25 hp for a total of 195 hp (141 kW). If you have the 1.8-liter turbo under the hood of your Giulietta, NOVITEC can increase its output to 261 hp (192 kW) and a peak torque of 386 Nm. This should be enough for a 0-62 mph sprint time in 6.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 251 km/h. The price tag for the POWERJET 2 is 419 Euro.

If you have a diesel engine in your Alfa, the tuner can fit it with the POWERRAIL 5 module. For the 1.6 JTD 16V it increases the output by 15 hp (11 KW) while for the 2.0 JTD 16V they offer an additional 20 hp (14.7 kW). The 2.0 JTD version has 195 hp (143 kW) and a peak torque of 400 Nm. Opting for the POWERRAIL 5 will set you back 335 Euro.

They can also fit your car with a set of 18-, 19- or 20-inch rims that are wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero rubbers. In addition, the Giulietta can be fitted with sport springs that can bring the car lower to the ground by 35 mm. Aside from this, NOVITEC also throws in a stainless steel coilover suspension that has an adjustable ride height and damper rates.

The Alfa Romeo Mi.To unveiled

A few days ago Alfa Romeo announced in a press release their latest car, the upcoming Alfa Romeo Mi.To. The Alfa ‘Mini killer’ (though I hate this term) joins the Fiat 500 in an Italian attempt to challenge Mini’s place in the market. One thing’s for sure about the Mi.To, it has a strange name, which comes from the first two lettres of the cities were the car was conceived. ‘Mi’ comes from Milano, where the car was designed and To comes from Turin (Torino), where the small car will be produced.

Being an Alfa Romeo, we know from the beginning that the car is beautiful and the photos confirm that. The Mi.To borrows some characteristic from Alfa’s latest sensation, the 8C Competizione, such as the three-lobed front-part, the particular shape of the unframed side windows and the shape of the headlights and the LED tail lights. Under the hood, the Alfa Romeo Mi.To will be offered with 4 engines, all Turbo (petrol and diesel), that currently range from 90 hp up to 155 hp, with the range due to be extended by even higher power ratings.

Check out to see more photos, a short video and read the full press release after the jump.
