313HP Alfa Romeo 4C Centurion by Pogea Racing

We’re onboard with the Alfa Romeo 4C. What’s not to love about the small, lightweight, RWD sports coupe motivated by a 240-horsepower, turbo, 1.75L inline-4? But far be it from us to not mess with a good thing, or discourage it, which is why we’re totally diggin’ this 4C Centurion from Pogea Racing.

Having spent a couple years R&D-ing mods for the platform, Eduard Pogea and crew think they have a complement of proven tweaks worth showing off. In Stage 1 chip tuning trim, the mill puts out a reported 293hp and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, while a Stage 1 Plus version takes those power figures to 313 and 320.

The mods propel the 4C to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds – which is faster than the current Porsche 911, BMW M4, or Mercedes AMG GT – and 124 mph in 14.4 ticks. Acceleration tops out at 187 mph, 27 mph more than an unmolested 4C.

Already pretty svelte at 2,200 pounds, Pogea developed some lightweight basic aero and other bits to trim mass further. Those include carbon fiber front and rear aprons, rear diffuser, and a rear wing (available in carbon or PEC) said to increase contact pressure on the rear axle by 77 pounds at 99 mph.

The company also engineered four versions of 101mm tail pipes, out of carbon or stainless steel, with or without flaps and silencers. And to optimize handling, Pogea’s L2 suspension components allow users to dial in ride height and hardness.

The Centurion seems like our kind of beast, indeed. For further details about Pogea Racing’s mods for the Alfa Romeo 4C, as well as other platforms, visit the company’s website.
