Alfa Romeo 4C Getting Tuned-Up by Pogea Racing

Upgraded Coupe Expected to Make 415 Horsepower

Pogea Racing’s technicians in Friedrichshafen, Germany, are busy developing a comprehensive TÜV-tested tuning program for the Alfa Romeo 4C, the sexy new sports car from the Alfa family that is on its way to the U.S. Pogea’s goal is to produce a kit that will offer powerful performance enhancements, lift-reducing aerodynamic components, suspension upgrades developed in cooperation with KW Automotive, and Pogea’s striking XCUT 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels. Interior modifications featuring special, leather, aluminum and carbon fiber accents complete the package.

According to Pogea, the aerodynamic kit, consisting of 100 percent carbon fiber body parts for the front, side and rear, not only add visual appeal to the Alfa 4C they also simultaneously reduce the lift -- increasing stability at higher speeds in the process.

As for performance, the production version of the 4C, which hasn’t gone on sale yet, uses a 1.75-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of roughly 240 horsepower. Pogea is looking to boost that number significantly.

“As a result of our experience with an identical engine, we expect a power increase to around 415 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque,” predicts company founder Eduard Pogea. “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.” With just 100 copies of the Alfa Romeo 4C initially available for the U.S., the 4C will be a rare sight on American roads. While there’s no word yet if the Pogea updates will be available for the U.S. market, if they turn out to be, it could offer owners a chance to show off an even more rare and unique car.
