POGEA RACING give the Italian added oomph!!
World exclusive performance upgrade for the brand new Fiat Abarth 500
Many have already tried and failed – only POGEA RACING have now managed to give the
Fiat Abarth 500 a major increase in engine performance to 168 bhp. Thanks to countless
test kilometres on one of the most modern 4 wheel-drive test centres, and the wealth of
experience of company founder and mastermind Eduard Pogea, they were able to crack
the password protected Euro 6 ECU, and develop a tailored engine performance
optimisation for the Fiat Abarth 500. Deliberately leaving out additional control devices
meant that all diagnosis and emergency running properties were still available in the car,
even after tuning.
After re-programming the production control unit, Stage 1 now produces 162bhp at
4,900 RPM, and at the same time, torque increases to 275Nm at 3,100 RPM. The upgrade,
which goes by the name Stage 2, offers even more power. This means the Abarth has
over 168 bhp at 4,900 RPM at its disposal, and supplies a mighty 285Nm at 3,100 RPM to
the crankshaft. Fire up Stage 2 and the Fiat 500 will now reach a top speed of 226 km/h,
and covers the sprint from 0 to 100 in 6.6 seconds. Both performance increases can be
switched on or deactivated via the sports button. POGEA RACING are offering the TÜV
approved upgrades ex works for the price of 819 Euro for Stage 1 and 919 Euro for Stage
If they wish, Fiat Abarth 500 owners can choose from a range of other POGEA
modification components. In particular, the perfectly processed and highly robust carbon
fibre bodywork programme would make you long for extensive customisation: Front
spoilers, splitters and intakes, bonnets, NACA profiles, Trofeo air intake, mirror caps,
roof spoilers, wings, side skirts and rear spoilers can either be ordered in carbon fibre or
composite fibre glass.
Another highlight in the POGEA customisation range is the XCUT wheel, manufactured in
a flow forming process. This ultra-light 18 inch wheel comes with a TÜV seal of approval,
from 309 Euro. POGEA Racing recommend tyres size 215/35 18.
A wide body version of the Fiat Abarth 500, with a turbo performance upgrade to 330
bhp based on all Euro 5 and also the new Euro 6 engines from the Fiat Group is already
being tested, and will be launched soon.
