Pogea Racing gives the 4C ZEUS a new look

Pogea Racing presents the latest design variant of its Alfa Romeo 4C complete conversion.

Providing automotive highlights again and again is deeply rooted in the POGEA philosophy. With the POGEA
RACING 4C ZEUS, based on the Alfa Romeo 4C, the tuning specialist from Friedrichshafen has once again
managed to stage such a highlight. The new design concept, designed by Managing Director Eva Pogea, skilfully
combines colours and shapes with a multitude of technical modifications. Targeted optimisation of the body,
wheels, chassis and engine transform the neat series Alfa into an optical and dynamic muscle package.

This is already ensured by the extensive bodywork, which subjects the two-seater to an athletic transformation
from the front apron to the rear wing. Carbon is also used in abundance: regardless of whether it is hidden under
the PETROL VOLTURI PEARL paint coats developed with GLASURIT or if it is visible with the typical fabric
structure. POGEA manufactures all its aerodynamic components from the ultra-light and high strength carbon
fibre material.

But this sophisticated manufacturer is not just about looks and aerodynamics. The performance potential of the
Alfa unit is also significantly increased by the experienced engine developers by means of the targeted use of
high-performance components. Instead of 240 hp (177 kW) the four-cylinder turbo engine now proudly
produces 355 hp (261 kW), while the maximum torque increases to 465 Newton metres. Thus fired, the ZEUS
accelerates in 3.4 seconds to a hundred km/h and stops only at 304 km/h max. speed.

In order to transform the tremendous power into forward motion a special combination of wheels and tyres is
necessary. POGEA recommends the Pilot Sport 4S high performance tyres from the cooperation partner Michelin
in the sizes 225/40 ZR18 for the front axle and 265/35 ZR19 for the rear axle and combines them with POGEA
forged monobloc alloy wheels from their own production. The forged wheels manufactured in 8.5×18″ for the
front axle and 9.5×19″ for the rear are an example of another core competence of the South German company: the
production of tailor-made forged wheels individually adapted to varying brakes, chassis and body widths. Six
patented designs – four of which are bidirectional with a high possible concavity, two are symmetrical – are milled
from scratch specifically to customer requirements using the required bolt hole circle and the TÜV-compliant
insert depth. T6061 aluminium forged wheels are available in 17″-26″ and 14″ wide sizes and can be
personalised with the buyer’s name on the ring.

And the interior is also presented in an individual look. Eva Pogea stylishly combines the finest leather from the
US premium supplier Moore and Giles with Alcantara, carbon fibre and decorative stitching and creates a
magnificent control centre that perfectly combines functionality and comfort.

Anyone interested in owning a ZEUS will have to hurry. Four of the ten limited exclusive conversions have been
sold already. The Pogea Racing ZEUS starts from € 50,100 ex-works in Friedrichshafen including assembly and
paint finish. This does not include VAT or the Alfa Romeo 4C basic vehicle.
