Abarth 595 Hercules by Pogea Racing
Pogea Racing announced their new tuning kit for the Abarth 595 Series 4 model range, which includes a complete carbon-fiber bodykit, new wheels, suspension tweeks, new exhaust and more power.
Visually, the Abarth 595 Hercules is distinguished by the widened front and rear fenders, side-sill extensions, splitter, bonnet with air intakes, and rear wing – all made from carbon-fiber. The bodykit can be standard/prepainted, clear-coated, or finished with Forged-Carbon, Honeycomb, and Camouflage patterns.
The company offers a choice of six rim designs for the 18″ forged wheels (Blade, Orbi5, Edison, Qm, Xcut, and Wilhelm) shod in 215/35 ZR18 Michelin tires. This is combined with the POGEA Label V1 coilover suspension by KW consisting of four fully adjustable sport shocks and four progressively wound sports springs. According to Pogea Racing “This puts the vehicle’s centre of gravity up to 45 millimetres lower than the stock model, thus specifically complementing the Abarth’s sporty drive character”.
Last but not least, Pogea Racing offers a tuning kit for the 1.4 T-Jet engine that produces 165 hp or 180 hp in stock form, increasing power up to 220 hp and torque to 350 Nm. This is achieved thanks to the flap-controlled exhaust system by MONSTERexhaust, the 200-cell downpipe with optional thermo-integral insulation that significantly reduces the temperature in the engine compartment, and a new engine management system.
The cost for all the modifications is €18,810 over the cost of the Abarth 595 donor car.
