We've seen Romeo Ferraris tune all manner of vehicles, but oddly none from the automaker with which it shares the first part of its name. That's all changing, but not with a current Alfa Romeo model. For their latest project, RF has turned its attention to the recently discontinued Alfa Romeo Brera.

Long considered one of the most beautiful designs mired by a substandard chassis, the Brera went out of production over a year ago. But to give it one last swan song, Romeo Ferraris has teamed up with venerable Alfa tuning firm Autodelta. Together, they've given the Brera's 3.2-liter V6 a supercharger, intercooler, custom exhaust and remapped ECU to boost power up by 97 horsepower for a more substantial 353 hp. That's tipped to drop the 0-62 time down to five seconds and the top end up to 162 mph.

Naturally a full body kit is also part of the package, as is an adjustable suspension and (we would hope) upgraded brakes as well. A fitting goodbye to one of the best-looking cars ever to grace the roads – and one that will hopefully keep it on them for years to come.

      One of the nicest looking cars ever - glad to see someone is giving it the power it long deserved.

        Too bad it was after production started. Get it together Alfa, seriously!....

      I always hoped Alfa would come to the U.S in time to bring us this car...ah, too bad. It'll always be one of my favorites

      I guess they forgot to polish/clean that supercharger for the photo shoot. It looks a bit filthy compared to the rest of car.

      Alfa Romeo Brera and 159 are some of the prettiest cars I've ever seen. What a shame MiTo and Giulietta is compared to Brera and 159. Some big(ger) auto magazine or site, like this, should open a poll about the design and send the result to Alfa Romeo/ FIAT. Yes, the reliability is a bit worse than the German automakers, but God, they're beautiful!

        Modern Alfa reliability is no worse than that of other brands. This ain't the '70s anymore.

      Why hast Alfa Romeo scorned the USA so? We don't get the awesome Alfas (159, Brera), only the uglified new crop (Giulietta, MiTo)

        We don't even get the Giulietta or MiTo...

      Man, what a good looking car, and of course the USA never got them. Wonder how it handles that much power through the front wheels.

      I wish Marchionne would realize how much better the raptor-like front of the Brera looks than the terrified-pig-in-a-windtunnel look of Alfa's latest offerings and mandate that it be the basis of future designs.

      One of my favorite car designs of the last several years, and I feel in love with it even deeper after seeing them in person a few years ago in Japan. I'm so bummed that Alfa still hasn't come back to the US. I was hoping to be able to pick up one of these used some day...
