The Italian sporting marque's latest advert has been created to promote its innovative MultiAir engine line-up, which promises increased fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions while considerably enhancing performance.
The intergalactic 'fix' of retro-gaming sees an Alfa Romeo MiTo skillfully eliminating the 'invaders' - which in this case are fuel pumps and toxic barrels - with lasers fired from its headlights.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo MultiAir range introduces the 1.4-litre 135 bhp Alfa Romeo MiTo Lusso and Veloce as well as the 170 bhp 1.4 Alfa Romeo MiTo Cloverleaf model complete with active suspension. All versions include Start&Stop technology.
Capable of reaching 62mph from a standing start in just 7.5 seconds, the range-topping Alfa Romeo MiTo Cloverleaf has a top speed of 136mph and a striking combined cycle official fuel economy figure of 47.1 mpg. These high-tech MultiAir engines also produce amongst the lowest CO2 levels of all Alfa Romeo MiTo petrol models.
