New Alfa Romeo Mito creates art work captured by iPhone7 Plus

Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci. These are a few of the famous Italian artists known for their wonderful works of art. Here comes Mito, from Turin, Italy, but Mito is no person. Mito is Alfa Romeo’s three-door supermini. Itself a work of art -- like its 8C, 4C and Guilia siblings -- the Alfa Romeo recently became involved in an art project in which it was the artist. All it needed was an empty warehouse, large white canvass and, of course, colorful powder and paint.

Then came the moment of truth, as captured in video by new high-quality dual camera feature of the new iPhone 7 Plus, which is now fully water-resistant. Its dual rear cameras don’t only take notably better photos -- especially in low light – but also could stitch together two images for unique effects like 2x optical zoom. A future software upgrade would add a cool in-camera bokeh effect that could blur the background while still focusing on the foreground. In addition, the battery of the new Alfa Romeo Mito

Using its spirited agility and superb driving dynamics, the Alfa Romeo Mito, ran and swished over the colored powder and paint and splash them over the white canvass – employing its distinct D.N.A driving system in the process. Alfa Romeo’s unique D.N.A system is a driving mode selector that could adapt the Mito’s performance to suit the driving style and road conditions.

2013 Alfa MiTo and Giulietta now available with the intelligent All-Weather control

Driving during the worst of winter in the UK is easier when you have any of the Alfa MiTo and Giulietta models that come with Alfa’s innovative D.N.A. system, which features an All-Weather driving mode. The Alfa MiTo and Giulietta ranges get the intelligent Vehicle Dynamic Control.

Drivers can choose from ‘D’ (Dynamic), ‘N’ (Natural) and ‘A’ (All-Weather) driving modes. When the car is in All-Weather mode, the ASR (Anti Slip Regulation) system constantly tracks the tire grip, its yaw and the steering angle. When necessary, the system narrows the throttle opening and the brakes are applied to the individual wheels to sustain stability. Simultaneously, the VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) system turns more intrusive, perfect for conditions where wheels could be on both snow and tarmac.

In addition, a Mµ-Split control function permits the car to discover traction and control at the same time on two totally diverse road conditions. This works together with the DST (Dynamic Steering Torque) feature that offers steering torque movements to initiate the natural correction of oversteer. Lastly, Hydraulic Brake Assistance also raises the braking pressure and as a result, it lessens the braking distances in an emergency.
