Forget the Shaguar – that’s so last century. MINI’s are cool again, but only one could star in an Austin Powers movie and wear the famous “GR8SHAG” number plate – the MINI Rocketman. Yeah Baby!
Which is faster? Man or MiTo? That’s the question posed by Alfa Romeo in a light-hearted social campaign run on Facebook. Olympian Iwan Thomas was challenged to beat an Alfa MiTo in a 3.8-mile race around central London’s bustling city streets, starting and finishing at Tower Bridge.
Ahead of the Aviva London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace this weekend (5-6 August) Alfa Romeo ambassadors Kelly Sotherton (400m), Harry Aikines-Aryeetey (100m), Lisa Dobriskey (1500m) and Iwan Thomas MBE (former European and Commonwealth 400m champion) stepped off the track and into the studio alongside an Alfa MiTo Sprint – shedding their clothing somewhere along the way.
