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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I’m tired of old classy style of cars. I don’t like much of that plain white color it only looks pale and nothing new to surprise. Maybe I’m just unto something different, fresh and advanced in style with good collaboration of materials, and engine.

The color is not that inviting. It more looks like a taxi in the Philippines, but the bumper is rare that it looks classy. The wheels in black are good. Fascinating in a way that it could reach a speed of 161mph.

I don’t find it nice. I think it falls between pretty and ugly. However, I’m still excited for the interior features of this car.

This Alfa Romeo looks good on its white body paint but that front design and headlights are quite disappointing to me. It looks overly designed.

Alfa Romeo never disappoints me on a good-looking vehicle, and this is absolutely so perfect! I’m also glad that they use an efficient engine on it, which is quite good enough for this kind of vehicle.

Italian tuning really did a great work on this Alfa Romeo and as for the engine of it, I can say that it is already so satisfying on that. Moreover, I wonder on what will be the other impressive features of it?

It looks so neat on its white body paint, and this is really what I’ve expected with an Alfa Romeo vehicle. Moreover, I can say that I’m already satisfied with its engine specification.
