Wheelsandmore Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione with 356kW

Wheelsandmore has got their hands on an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and given it a few styling tweaks, and some engine revisions to increase horsepower.

The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is a rare supercar featuring a front-mounted naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 with 331kW/480Nm, sending power to the rear wheels. A traditional approach to the sports car in other words, yet it is wrapped in a gorgeous Alfa body.

Wheelsandmore provides tuning packages for a wide range of car brands, and for its latest kit, the company spans out to the Italian carmaker and modifies one of just 500 8Cs ever made.

On the outside, Wheelsandmore has implemented a foil wrap featuring matt black highlights. The black highlights match a set of 21-inch forged lightweight alloy wheels, which sit nicely in the guards thanks to a fully adjustable coilover suspension system.

As for the engine tuning, Wheelsandmore provides two different stages of tune. The first stage sees tweaks to the engine computer, pushing power and torque up to 345kW and 500Nm. For even more go, the ECU is tweaked and a full high-flow exhaust system is fitted, pushing power to 356kW and torque to 520Nm.

In standard form, the 8C is able to smash 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds. After these modifications, one could expect to dip into the high 3.0-seconds range.
