SLOUGH, UNITED KINGDOM – May 1, 2013: Alfa Romeo customers are to be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with top British athletes, when they buy an Alfa MiTo Sprint or Giulietta Sportiva between now and the end of June.

Celebrating its partnership with British Athletics (formerly UK athletics), the Italian car manufacturer is offering all buyers of its sporty Alfa MiTo Sprint and its five door Alfa Giulietta Sportiva a sporting masterclass with one of its athlete ambassadors^.

Customers will be invited to attend a masterclass session with a friend, where they will learn top tips from the likes of Olympic bronze medal-winning high jumper Robbie Grabarz, UK long jump record holder Chris Tomlinson and former 400m sprinter Iwan Thomas. Sprint and Sportiva buyers will gain expert insight into the athletes’ sporting disciplines, before learning how to execute the perfect long jump, high jump or 400-metre sprint.

If dusting off your running shoes and training with the elite isn’t tempting enough, the Alfa MiTo 875cc TB TwinAir 85 bhp Sprint, which features 16-inch sports alloys, a Blue&Me Bluetooth and cruise control, is now available at just 139 per month with a 500 Alfa Romeo deposit contribution.

Meanwhile, Alfa is currently offering a 1,500 deposit contribution to buyers of Alfa Giulietta Sportiva, which boasts 3,000-worth of specification for just 1000 OTR, including 18-inch spoke alloys, red Brembobrake callipers, sports leather upholstery and more.
