While originally making a name for customized interiors, Bulgarian design studio Vilner has recently started to expand its reach and work to include exterior and performance modifications as well.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo you see here received the full treatment beginning with an “exclusive red lacquer that features a pearl effect” (which we can’t really see from these images), with the side mirrors, door handles, front grilles, tail-light rings and diffuser painted in gloss black. In addition, the car rides on 17-inch rims and the exhaust tailpipes are finished in a matt-grey shade.
Naturally, Vilner redid the entire interior applying nabuck, Nappa and carbon leathers on the seats, door panel and dashboard surfaces, while also giving most plastic trims an aluminum effect and adding custom floor mats and an individual traveling bag.
The final touch comes from the engine bay where the 1.4-liter turbocharged four now delivers 200PS (197hp) and 279 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque, up from 155PS (153hp) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft).
