Italian tuner/racing team Romeo Ferraris has partnered with British Alfa Romeo tuning firm Autodelta to give one last push on their supercharger and styling kits for the Alfa Romeo Brera which ceased production in Novermber 2010. All components, including the supercharger, have been developed by Autodelta while Romeo Ferraris acts as distributor and authorized service center for Italy. First seen back in 2009, although with slightly less power, Autodelta's centrifugal supercharger kit increases power output of the 3.2-liter V6 unit by 98 PS (97 bhp / 72 kW) over the standard 260 PS (256 bhp / 191 kW) while torque increase 120 Nm (89 lb-ft) to 440 Nm (325 lb-ft). The supercharger kit includes the compressor, intercooler, special piping, reprogrammed ECU and new full exhaust system which includes a 200 cell catalytic converter. The result is a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 5 seconds versus 6.5 seconds for the standard Brera and top speed increases to 260 km/h (162 mph). The body aero kit has also been restyled courtesy of Autodelta again. It includes a new front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper fascia. Height adjustable sports suspension kit with new springs and shocks have also been added.
