The Giugiaro-designed Alfa Romeo Brera has been restyled by Bulgarian specialist Vilner.

Vilner worked on a special edition 2009 Alfa Romeo Brera Italy Independent which was built in a limited series of 900 units and based on the facelift model that came out in 2008. The exterior with its titanium matte paint, aluminum fuel cap, red brake calipers and 18-inch matte black alloy wheels was left untouched as all the work was done on the inside.

The cabin has been wrapped around in a combination of Alcantara, Nappa leather and authentic snakeskin. In addition, Vilner applied red contrasting stitching combined with carbon inserts along with embroidery featuring an East Asian dragon theme. The seats now have horizontal red stripes made out of Nappa leather while the seatbelts have a similar red finish. Black leather with red contrasting stitching was applied on the door panels while the ceiling now has an Alcantara finish.

Lastly, the dragon theme can also be seen on the back of the front seats and Vilner replaced the plastic strips on the dashboard and doors with real black snakeskin. The car's original steering wheel, aluminum plates built into the headrests of the front seats along with the dashboard carbon fiber elements were kept from the original Brera Italy Independent special edition.
