Sporty lifestyle package for the latest sports car – POGEA RACING gives a first look at its tuning programme for the Alfa Romeo 4C.Since 1997, POGEA RACING has been developing and manufacturing products to customize sports cars. Therefore it only makes sense that the technicians of the company in Friedrichshafen, Germany are busy developing a comprehensive TÜV tested tuning programme for the 4C, the latest racer from the Alfa family. The goal: powerful performance enhancements, lift-reducing aerodynamic components and striking 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels. Sporty suspension components and noble interior modifications made of leather, aluminum and carbon fiber will complete the portfolio.
The POGEA aerodynamic kit in the lifestyle design is strikingly sporty: the 100% carbon fibre body parts for the front, side and rear not only add visual appeal to the Alfa 4C—they also simultaneously reduce the lift forces which will increase the driving stability, especially at high speeds. Their addition makes sense, given the tremendous increase in power gained by POGEA's performance enhancements.
'As a result of our experience wîth an identical engine, we expect a power increase to around 415 hp and 450 Nm of torque,' 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 wîth valve control will replace the serial components. In addition, we optimise the fuel supply and the cooling system. It is a well-tuned optimized engine management.' Anyone at the wheel of a 4C will enjoy the throaty sound and clearly sensing the car's agility.
Specifically tailored to the needs of turbo-charged Alfa Romeo, POGEA RACING is making its XCÚT rim in 19- and 20-inch special editions. Developed in cooperation
with KW Automotive, DCC and Clubsport suspension kits will make the driving dynamics even sportier.
In addition to the existing, serial interior, POGEA is planning accessories made from aluminum, carbon fibre or leather. Anything the Alfa Romeo 4C driver wants can be requested—from personalized floor mats to complete leather interiors.
