Alfa Romeo Brera by Romeo Ferraris

The Italian tuners from Romeo Ferraris have teamed up with another tuning company from UK called Autodelta to develop an upgrade program for the Alfa Romeo Brera, a car that was discontinued in November last year. All of the components of this upgrade kit, including here the supercharger; have been created by Autodelta, while Rome Ferraris acts as an authorized service center and distributor in Italy.

The centrifugal supercharger kit developed by Autodelta was first seen in 2009 but it had less power than it has now. For the latest tuning program it increases the power of the V6 3.2-liter engine by 97 hp (98 PS / 72 kW) over the stock 256 hp (260 PS / 191 kW), while the torque figure is also up by 89 lb.-ft (120 Nm) to 325 lb.-ft (440 Nm). This supercharger kit includes an intercooler, compressor, special piping, and a full exhaust system that has a 200-cell catalytic converter, along with a reprogrammed ECU.

Thanks to these upgrades, the Alfa Romeo Brera by Romeo Ferraris needs only 5 seconds to do the 0-62 mph sprint, which is 1.5 seconds less than the standard Brera. It is able to reach a maximum speed of 162 mph (260 km/h).

The upgrade program also includes a restyled bodykit which is the work of Autodelta. It brings new side skirts, a revised front bumper and a modified rear bumper fascia. In addition, the car comes with a new height adjustable sports suspension kit that has new shocks and springs.

Although many argue about the build quality of Alfa Romeo models, the beautiful exterior design more than makes up for it. One of the current gems in the lineup is the Alfa Romeo Brera hatchback, which has already seen multiple versions including a convertible model.

Now, the Italian company decided to take the premium associated with the Brera even higher, and teamed up with local fashion house Italia Independent to bring this special edition, decked out in a special titanium paint, with 18-inch turbine-style dark wheels, behind which are a set of red brake calipers and an aluminum fuel cap. The fashion house’s influence is highlighted on the inside, where carbon fiber, black leather and red stiching blend together, integrating many logos of Italia Independent.

The Alfa Romeo Italia Independent Brera will be available with the two standard engines, the 2.2-liter four-cylinder unit and the 3.2-liter V6 one, in either front or all-wheel drive. You’d better move fast though, as only 900 units will be made for Europe, Japan and Australia, with prices starting at €29,700 ($41,000) for the 2.2-liter and €38,850 ($57,000) for the V6.

Overall, a stylish model which will no doubt be added to the collection of many fashion lovers.
