The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione might go down in history as one of the most beautiful automobiles ever created, but that hasn't stopped Wheelsandmore from attempting to improve an icon. Looking tastefully restrained, the model is equipped with a foil wrap, matte black accents, an adjustable coilover suspension and 21-inch forged alloy wheels with Hankook S1 Evo tires. The 4.7-liter V8 engine can be outfitted with a revised ECU which enables it to produce 470 PS (345 kW / 463 hp) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 20 PS (14 kW / 19 hp) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft). If that isn't powerful enough, the Stage II package adds a sports exhaust system which enables the engine to churn out 485 PS (356 kW / 478 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque.
