Alfa Romeo 4C Zeus By Pogea Is Lighter, More Powerful And Faster

Pogea Racing’s latest project is another tuned Alfa Romeo 4C, called the Zeus, which is lighter and more powerful than the stock model.

With a modified turbocharger, adjusted air flow, cooling and other work done to the 1.75-liter engine, the four pot now delivers 351 PS (346 hp / 258 kW) and 458 Nm (338 lb-ft) of torque.  From 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph), the 4C Zeus is said to need 3.4 seconds, a 1.1 second improvement over the stock car, while top speed has increased from 258 km/h (160 mph) to 304 km/h (189 mph).

It’s also 100 kg lighter

Besides the healthy power boost, Pogea Racing’s 4C is also lighter. By using carbon fiber, the tuner has managed to shave 100 kg (220 lbs) and says that with a full tank of fuel, but without the sound system, the Italian sports car weighs only 904 kg (1,993 lbs).

Other technical upgrades include a stainless steel exhaust system with carbon tailpipes, KW coilover suspension that reduces the ride height by up to 50 mm (2 in), braided steel brake lines, ceramic clutch discs and an extra oil cooler for the engine and gearbox.

Finished in ‘Kenny Blue’, the tuned 4C has a larger front splitter, new side skirts, rear diffuser and wing, as well as the scoop design instead of the rear window, which provides extra cooling for the mid-mounted engine. There are also new wheels, 8.5×18-inch at the front and 9.5×19-inch at the rear, shod in 225/40 and 265/35 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

Leather and Alcantara trims, colorful accents all around, a 12 o’clock meter on the steering wheel and velour floor mats enhance the appeal inside. The Alpine premium sound system comes with a subwoofer and adds a reversing camera as well.

Only 10 units of the 4C Zeus will be made and each one starts from €50,100 ($56,759). However, the price doesn’t include the donor car, for which clients will have to fork out another €50,000 ($56,645) or more for a used one, depending on the condition.

    Best looking 4C I’ve seen. Though I’d prefer the non-spider eye headlamps.
