Pogea Racing is proud to introduce the limited-run Alfa Romeo 4C CENTURION 1plus.

The Giulia is all the rage these days at Alfa Romeo, but let’s not neglect the Italians also have this little gem. Pogea Racing decided to sharpen up the 4C by infusing more power in the four-cylinder, 1.75-liter turbocharged gasoline engine.

In its standard configuration, the motor pumps out 237 hp (177 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. That's good enough for a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in 4.1 seconds and a 160 mph (257 km/h) top speed. Should these figures not suffice, Pogea Racing can bump the power to 314 hp (234 kW) and 336 lb-ft (455 Nm). In this case, the 4C will cover the sprint in a mere 3.8 seconds and reach a 189 mph (305 km/h) maximum velocity.

There’s more to this 4C than its upgraded engine, as Pogea also installed a new carbon fiber body kit consisting of a front bumper, diffuser, and a rear spoiler. The custom wing at the back is capable of generating an extra 77 lbs (35 kg) of downforce on the rear axle at 99 mph (160 km/h). Moreover, the optimized TCT Twin Clutch transmission now changes gears by up to 55% quicker than before.

The list of upgrades goes on with a set of lowering springs that bring the 4C closer to the road by 50 mm. These can be matched with an optional set of 18-inch front & 19-inch rear ultralight forged XCUT wheels shod in Michelin 225/40 ZR18 and 265/30 ZR19 tires, respectively.

Only ten of these will be made and Pogea Racing is asking $87,100 (€79,950), including the base vehicle, paintwork, and assembly.
