The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta and MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde models made their world debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week. 

The recently renewed models will continue to leave a mark on their respective markets with sports-focused styling, compact and powerful engines, optimal power-to-weight ratio and advanced technological features. 

The two new high performance models are in sync with the upcoming 4C supercar, Alfa Romeo’s modern icon that represents the essential sportiness embedded in the Italian brand’s DNA.

The two new vehicles are also tribute to the legendary history of the Quadrifoglio Verde (four leaf clover), a symbol that has been associated with Alfa Romeo’s highest performing vehicles since 1923.

The Quadrifoglio Verde has appeared on both racing vehicles and numerous special production models.

The 'RL' model, which Ugo Sivocci drove to victory in the 14th edition of the Targa Florio in 1923, was the first Alfa Romeo to bear the Quadrifoglio Verde. 

All racing Alfas have carried the emblem for good luck since then, ensuring its worldwide recognition. 

The symbol also began to appear on road-going Alfa Romeos in the 1960s.

The Quadrifoglio Verde versions of MiTo and Giulietta have assumed a place in the tradition of the best Alfa Romeos, drawing on the heritage of dynamic performance without compromising on efficiency, respect for the environment and convenience in everyday use.
