Alfa Romeo released the first official video featuring the Mito GTA. Even though it appeared at Geneva as a concept the Alfa Romeo Mito GTA will make its way into production and rivals like the 197 hp Renault Clio RS or the 211 hp MINI Cooper S JCW (Jonh Cooper Works) have a big reason to be afraid as the new Mito is powered by the 1,75 liter 240 hp Fiat sourced turbocharged engine. Besides the 85 hp increase, other upgrades that were made to the Alfa Romeo Mito and now come under the GTA badged version include a lowered center of gravity, a revised front suspension, an active suspension management system with advanced damper control plus a whole list of…

Now we don’t know if the video reflects just another brand awareness strategy from the mobile communication giant Vodafone that also “happens” to be the main McLaren Mercedes F1 team sponsor, or a real story but all we know is this video is fun to watch.
So to get to the point : a team of office geeks adapt the Blackberry Storm smart phone to the point where they use the phone as a steering-wheel for a small remote controlled F1 car. After they publish a video of their office grand prix on the Internet, they receive an invitation at…

I bet that we can all get very used to that in the future…
