Alfa fanatics are in for a treat—the style-leading Italian automaker teamed up with fashion house Italia Independent to release a special version of the already stunning Giugiaro-penned Brera. An optional and unique paint application, an opaque coating called “Titanium,” gives the Brera a distinct look that meshes well with the defiantly aggressive front quarters—although if it doesn’t suit you, pull the Brera into Forza’s in-game paint studio and drape the sleek hatch with a custom livery. Additionally, the 3.2-liter V6 variant not only gets style points on the boulevard, it also helps make the Brera a capable sports coupe that can get out of its own way quite effectively. That’s because the Alfa also packs all-wheel drive, called Q4 in Alfa-speak. The result is a modern Alfa Romeo coupe that matches hot looks with hot performance, in a way only the motoring spirit of Italy can deliver.
The Italia Independent is a special variant of the 2+2 hatchback Brera coupé that was limited to 900 units. Designed in collaboration with an identically named Italian eyewear company, it featured matte black paint, 18 inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers and an aluminum filler cap.
It appears in the Forza series as the 3.2 liter V6 model with a six-speed manual transmission and a Torsen all-wheel drive.
