German tuning company Wheelsandmore has decided to work on one of the finest Italian cars, the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, preparing a special upgrade package to improve this icon a bit. The 8C Competizione is one of the most beautiful cars ever built and probably that’s why the car’s look was only slightly changed.

A custom foil wrap with matte black accents, an adjustable coilover suspension that lowers the car to the ground and a new set of 21″ forged alloy wheels wrapped in high performance Hankook S1 Evo tires.  More important upgrades were made under the hood, where the 4.7L V8 went through a couple of tweaks to get a small power boost.

The performance kit comes in two stages: stage I includes a revised ECU which increases the car’s power by 20 PS (14 kW / 19 hp) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) to a total output of 470 PS (345 kW / 463 hp) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque while Stage II also includes a sports exhaust system which takes the car’s power to 485 PS (356 kW / 478 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque.
