Pogea Racing Amping-Up the Alfa Romeo 4C

Italian Sports Car to Morph into German-Tuned Rocket with 415 HP

The Alfa Romeo 4C hasn't even hit U.S. shores yet, or any shore for that matter, but that hasn't stopped German tuning company Pogea Racing from working on a modified version of the upcoming Italian sports coupe. With performance and aesthetic improvements at its core, Pogea will be giving the 4C some serious TLC.

The Pogea-ized Alfa 4C will feature an aerodynamic kit made of 100 percent carbon fiber at the front, rear and sides of the car, not only adding to its visual appeal but also helping to reduce lift at high speeds, according to the company. The car will also be fitted with updated suspension components developed in cooperation with KW Automotive, as well as a set of Pogea's XCUT alloy wheels in either 19 or 20 inch sizes. Pogea also says it will be transforming the interior, adding special aluminum, carbon fiber and leather accent pieces to the 4C package.

In addition to the suspension, aerodynamic, and aesthetic upgrades, there are also major power updates reportedly on tap for the Pogea 4C. The production car is powered by a 1.75-liter turbocharged four cylinder with 240 horsepower.

"As a result of our experience with an identical engine, we expect a power increase to be around 415 hp and 450 Nm of torque (332 lbs/ft)," predicts Eduard Pogea, founder and mastermind at Pogea Racing, adding: "To achieve this, various engine modifications are necessary: new turbochargers, tubular exhaust manifold and an exhaust system with valve control will replace the serial components. In addition, we optimize the fuel supply and the cooling system. It is a well-tuned optimized engine management."

If you want to update your 4C even further, Pogea will accommodate any driver's requests, even down to personalized floor mats. No word yet if and when the Pogea 4C transformation will be available for the U.S.
