German Tuner Pogea Squeezes 308 HP Out of Alfa Romeo 4C

Most conductors tune their orchestras to A4, a note with a 440-Hz frequency. But German tuner Pogea Racing has composed a piece to the tune of Alfa Romeo 4C. Its latest concerto is called the Centurion, which pumps out 308 hp and 321 lb-ft of torque in its most potent form. That's quite a symphony, indeed.

Pogea Racing saw an opportunity in the already sporty Italian. A stock U.S.-spec Alfa 4C weighs 2,465 pounds, puts out 237 hp, and does 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds in our tests. Pogea claims the more powerful Centurion, based on a lighter Euro-spec 4C, is able to sprint to 62 in 3.9 seconds. From there, it can keep charging all the way up to its claimed 187-mph top speed. The Pogea 4C stays planted to the ground at speed with the help of a new rear spoiler, which adds 77 pounds of downforce on the rear axle at 100 mph. The front and rear aprons and the rear diffuser are carbon fiber, and the center-mounted 4-inch dual exhaust tips can also be specified in carbon fiber. If you want something in between a stock 4C and the top 308-hp model, Pogea also offers a "Phase 1" tune, which bumps power to 290 hp and 306 lb-ft.

On top of the increased power, Pogea has made modifications to the 4C's already exceptional chassis. The tuner added its own Pogea Racing L2 components to the existing double-wishbone front and MacPherson strut rear suspension. The setup features adjustable height and damping, so you can tailor the ride quality to your needs. We don't know whether Pogea Racing will offer tuned Alfas in the U.S., but a 308-hp 4C sure sounds good to us.
