Pogea Racing has devised a dramatic package for the Abarth 595. Dubbed the Hercules kit, it includes a wide body kit, uprated suspension, fresh wheels and a bump in power.

The tuner has fitted wide front and rear wheel arches, complemented by new elements for the rear and front apron. Air inlets for the bonnet are optionally available. All parts are made from carbon to keep the weight figure down.

As for wheels, customers have the choice of six exclusive 18-inch forged alloy designs, mated to a set of Michelin tyres. This is joined by a Pogea Label V1 coilover kit by KW, consisting of four height-adjustable sport dampers in a unit with progressively wound sport springs. This allows owners to lower the ride by up to 45 mm.

All of these upgrades don’t come without a bump it power. The little hot hatch’s turbocharged 1,4-litre four-pot has had its standard peak outputs of 121 kW and 250 N.m of torque lifted to 162 kW and 350 N.m. This provides it with an improved (claimed) 0-100 km/h time of 6,2 seconds.

Further accentuating this power is a flap-controlled Monster exhaust system with a 200-cell downpipe featuring optional thermal integral insulation.
