Pogea Racing Alfa Romeo 4C.002 Centurion

If the Alfa Romeo 4C is your kind of coupe, then Pogea Racing’s 4C Centurion 1Plus might pique your interest. The German tuners have kitted-up the little Italian sports car and in addition to that, they’ve also found a way to squeeze out more power from the 4C’s mighty little engine.

Underneath the compact coupe is a 1.75 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which can also be found beneath the Giuletta. In its original state of tune, it produces 240 hp and 350 Nm. Pogea Racing has managed to up those figures to 314 hp and 455 Nm, in the Centurion 1Plus.

Furthermore, the boost in power is also matched to a tuned TCT dry twin-clutch transmission, which now changes gears by up to 55% quicker. The combination allows for the 895 kg 4C to go from 0-96 km/h (60 mph) in just 3.8 seconds (over 4.1 seconds) and achieve a top speed of 305 km/h (over 257 km/h).

Aesthetic enhancements that comes with the 4C Centurion 1Plus include a carbon-fibre body that comprises of a front bumper, grille inserts, side skirts, a rear apron, a diffuser and a functional spoiler in the back. The rear wing is said to be able to generate an added 35 kg of downforce to the rear axle at speeds of 160 km/h.

To give it better handling characteristics, the tuned 4C features a set of springs to also give it a lower stance by 50 mm. On top of that, a pair of 18-inch front and 19-inch rear ultralight forged XCUT rims wrapped in Michelin 225/40ZR18 (front) and 265/30ZR19 (rear) tyres, can be opted for.

While the base car is already limited as it is (3,500 units), Pogea Racing says only 10 of the 4C Centurion 1Plus will be built. As to how much it will cost, the tuners have tagged the entire package including the base vehicle, paintwork and assembly at USD$87,100 (RM371,150) – that’s way more affordable than the 4C we found on oto.my! So guys, do you prefer this 4C or would you rather have your art untainted?
