Romeo Ferraris Audi RS3

Author arman    Category Audi     Tags

The Italian tuners at Romeo Ferraris turn attention to the Audi RS3, one of the most powerful, and most refined hatchbacks in the market.

The standard car has a 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder with 340PS (250 kW) and 450Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. But that is no good in Romeo’s opinion, so they set about modifying it.

They begin with Stage 1 which includes a high-flow air filter and an ECU re-map. The result is an increase of 41PS (30 kW) and 73Nm (54 lb-ft). Then there’s the Stage 2 treatment which adds a new high performance sports exhaust system including downpipe, middle section and silencer. The result is a gain of 68PS (50 kW) and 139Nm (103 lb-ft).

We think 408 PS is probably enough! Don’t you?

Romeo Ferraris was obviously not happy with the way the Porsche 997 Turbo sounds, so they set about changing it.

This tuning package they’ve come up with does add an extra 70hp to the output of the engine, through sport air filter and ECU remap, and the visual tweaks are nice, but it’s all about the noise.

Romeo offers offers a Cargraphic exhausts system made from stainless steel and with active valves. They are good and are civilized at low speed and only loud when you want them to be but Romeo also offers an Akrapovic kit which is just great.

The Akrapovic system is made of titanium and besides all the acoustic advantages, it also sheds a couple of kilos off the weight of the car.

Romeo Ferraris upgrades its package for the Alfa Romeo Brera with a new supercharger from Autodelta.

We always though the Brera left us too soon and it still had a lot to live for. But Alfa thought they better kill it.

Thanks to the new supercharger, inrercooler, special pipings, exhausts and ECU software, the 3.2 liter Alfa V6 in this car gains a healthy 98 hp, for a total 358 and 440 Nm of torque. That means o to 100 in 5 seconds and top speed of 260 km/h.

The Brera also benefits from a cool body kit with revised front and rear dumpers, sporty side skirts, and a set of designer wheels.

Among the high performance mid-size saloons, the Insignia OPC is one of the cheapest. So chances are if you get one you think of tuning it at some point.

Romeo Ferraris, the Italian tuner, has come up with a good performance kit that might be just what you want.

They chip tune the 325 hp 2.8 liter V6 engine of the OPC up to 375 hp and its torque from 435 Nm up to 515 Nm. That is a remarkable gain and will reduce the 0 to 100 km/h time to 5.6 seconds.

At this stage they don’t offer any body kit. For that you have to go the German tuners.

Romeo Ferraris is becoming Italy’s biggest tuner thanks to projects like this.

It is the Fiat 500 Stradale which is a copy of Romeo’s racing car for the streets. Based on the Abarth 500, this car has a small 1.4 liter turbo engine, but somehow Romeo managed to extract 300 hp out of it.

Racing features inspired by the actual car include a body kit, racing seats and suede interior.

The car weighs no more than 100 kg, so with power to weight ratio of a sportscar it can hit 250 km/h top speed.

Just out of the blue Romeo Ferrari, the famous Italian tuner, came up with a nice treatment for BMW X3. Not the new one, but the 2008 model.

It’s called the Military Green, due to the unique color of the body, which incidentally is hella expensive, costing nearly 2,000 euros. It’s completed with carbon-look roof and gloss black frames and door handles.

First off you get a matt blue paint job with silver stripes, complemented by black bits on the fenders and skirts, and blacked-out grilles.

19 inch OZ Racing II Ultralight alloys wrapped in Yokohama Advan Sport tires (size 225/40R19) are also finished in black, but with outer lip in blue, which goes well with the blue/black theme of the body.

Based on the Cooper S model, the Countryman gets a remapped ECU, a custom intercooler and a sports exhaust system, for an extra 43 HP and 88 Nm of torque. Romeo also drops the car by 55mm, installs Brembo brakes and hooks you up with  a fancy interior.

The look is also slightly upgraded with blacked-out grilles and lights and wheels which make a nice contrast with the white body of the car. It has the same 19-inch AMG wheels, only black.

The interior is done nicely with red leather for, everything really. You find it on the seats, steering wheel, gear knob, door panels… the lot! It’s a nice package but the car is kinda outdated really.

For the 25th anniversary of the company, the prestigious Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris released a very special version of the Abarth 500C.

This unique birthday gift from Romeo to himself features a magnificent two tone paint job that is a combination of metallic red and chrome effect foil. It creates a swell look for the little Fiat 500C.

What’s more the car gets 17-inch multi spoke wheels and a red dashboard and black leather upholstery featuring diamond cut patterns and contrasting stitching.

And to top it all off, the tuner also tweaks the Abarth engine, from 140 to 203 hp by using stuff like better air filters, exhausts, and turbocharger. This car of course won’t be cheap, but in many ways it is the ultimate version of Fiat 500.
