This Alfa 4C by Pogea Racing is vicious
The Alfa Romeo 4C is a bit of a unicorn because building a no-frills sportscar just for the fun of it is complex in today's automotive market. It is nippy and lightweight but you wouldn't call it extreme. However, a German tuner called Pogea Racing decided to up the ante by building a more aggressive and powerful 4C. They call it the "Zeus".
The engine has been tuned and it now produces 354 hp, 117 more than the factory car, and 343 lb-ft of torque (vs 258), meaning the zero-to-sixty time is now dealt with in just 3.4 seconds and the car will keep on going all the way to a top speed of 189 mph.
Pogea Racing also gave it sporting credentials to go with the extra oomph. There's a new aero kit comprising a new front splitter, side skirts, and a new spoiler, new apron and diffuser. This gives the 4C something more in the looks department, yes, but it also helps downforce. They also fitted new forged alloys, 18 inches at the front and 19 at the back, sitting on Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tyres.
The 4C Zeus is coated in a unique matte Petrol Volturi Pearl paint, with new seats and the new leather upholstery for the interior.
The bad news is, it ain't cheap. Pogea is only going to build 10 units of the Zeus and it is going to charge €50,100 for all these modifications and this, of course, is not including the cost of the donor car that, which starts at around 60-70,000€ in Europe.
