Watch a Kawasaki Undertake Alfa's New MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK

The arrival of the new limited edition Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK in the UK after its world premiere at last year’s Paris Motor Show, sparked a promotional idea into the heads of the Italian brand; since the car is inspired and named after the Superbike championship, how about placing it together with a racing bike on the track?

Alfa Romeo called in precision driver Paul Swift and British Superbike rider Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker to perform a neat stunt at the Silverstone circuit. Swift drove the Alfa over a ramp tilting it on one side so Walker could ride under it in a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike before speeding out to the other side.

According to the Italian carmaker, only 25 examples of the SBK Limited Edition are destined for the UK, each carrying a sticker price of £21,595 OTR, which it says, represents a customer saving of around £1,200 over the standard MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde fitted with the extra equipment.
