The Alfa Romeo GT Sud-Est is a Brera with a Giulia ancestor. You can have it too

Do you think the Alfa Romeo Brera needs a facelift?

The Alfa Romeo Brera, a three-door hatchback produced between 2005 and 2010, is a car with a distinctive design that still has many fans today. However, there are apparently people who think the Brera could look better.

Among them is the Italian Quintino Parisini, who had a Brera built by PariS’5 GaraGe with an ancestor from the more modern Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. But we can look at the result, which was named GT Sud-Est, in a different way than as a redesigned Brera. How about seeing it as a three-door Giulia?

In any case, the rebuilding took about a year of work. It all started by stripping the front parts of the Italian hatchback. Then followed the installation of the bumper, mask and headlights from the aforementioned Giulia Quadrifoglio.

However, it was not as simple as it sounds. The front-wheel-drive Brera has a longer front overhang than the rear-wheel-drive Giulia, so the tuner had to substantially modify the front fenders and change the hood as well. Note that the company has also covered part of the front lights, making them look narrower.

To match the rest of the car with the new front end, the rear fenders were widened and the car also got more prominent side sills. At the rear, an aggressive diffuser complete with a rear spoiler and new headlights will also impress. Finally came the blue varnish.

The first GT Sud-Est is powered by a 154kW 2.4-litre turbodiesel, although the modification was originally designed for a piece with a 3.2-litre six-cylinder which, after installing a supercharger and other modifications, provides a maximum output of 256kW. As standard, this unit gives 191 kW.

If you like the Brera with the front of the Giulia, then you might be interested to know that PariS’5 GaraGe is offering a conversion to other interested parties. The reconstruction costs at least 20,000 euros, i.e. about 490,000 crowns in conversion. The price does not include the default Brera, you have to get it yourself. That way you get parts, labor and a complete paint job. Unlike the first piece, the next transformation will only take about four months.
