Italian tuning firm, Romeo Ferraris, has a new tuning program in their catalog, one that features a significant performance modification for the soon-to-be defunct Alfa Romeo Brera . The package is called the RF-Brera, and as the name suggests, it’s got Romeo Ferraris’ imprint all over it.
Already powered by an impressive 3.2-liter V6 engine that produces 260 horsepower and 237 lb/ft of torque, Romeo Ferraris decided that it just wasn’t good enough. So they went out and built a program for the car, adding a host of enhancements that include a Rotrex centrifugal compressor, a new intercooler, a sport air filter, a remapped ECU, and a brand new complete exhaust collector and metal catalyst. On top of that, the Italian tuning company also installed kit sports springs and dampers adjustable in height and calibration to give the car better handling and split-second response, especially in tight corners.
With all these additions, the Brera’s RF-supercharged engine can now produce an output of 358 horsepower and 324 lb/ft of torque, numbers that allow it to hit 0-62 mph in just 5.0 seconds - 1.5 seconds faster than the 6.5-second time of the standard Brera - and reach a top speed of 161 mph, up from the standard model’s 149-mph top speed.
Considering that the Brera is on its last legs as a production model, this feels like an appropriate farewell tuning program from Romeo Ferraris.
