German tuner Pogea Racing has unveiled a road-legal, highly tuned Alfa 4C, called the Nemesis001. Pogea was asked to build a road-legal version of its Nemesis concept – an Alfa Romeo 4C tweaked to produce 500hp – for a customer in Sydney, Australia.
The 2.0-litre turbo engine has new Ferrari-derived sleeves, uprated cooling, new conrods, Pistal pistons and a new intercooler using Porsche 911 997 Turbo parts. There’s also a 200-cell catalytic converter to comply with local emissions laws.
Power in the road car is electronically limited to 410hp, but Pogea says that without emissions equipment 481hp is achievable (albeit with noise levels of 124dB). Peak torque is 550Nm. The TCT gearbox has been reinforced, while there’s also a sintered clutch and new transmission software. The chassis has been tweaked by KW Automotive, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 18/19-inch tyres wrap black high-gloss wheels.
As for looks, Pogea’s bodykit consists of new front and rear aprons, side skirts, adjustable rear spoiler and scoops to boost cooling. Many of the carbonfibre parts are painted in coarse metallic silver.
