Novitec Rosso spoiler was developed in
the wind tunnel.
MT, PR, 24 April 2008.
For sure, the Novitec Rosso
two-seater is one of the world's fastest and most
powerful street-legal cars. With 707 hp / 520 kW, 712
Nm, 0 - 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, a top speed of 348
km/h and extremely sporty interior appointments,
figures say it all... once we add the price tag of
Starting from 193,277 Euros,
indeed, that's not less impressive.
Novitec Rosso, one of the world's
leading tuners of sports cars from Maranello, puts at
the heart of the snow-white racer featuring
triple-design black stripes, the twin-supercharger
engine in its latest evolutionary stage - RACE.

Up to now, the eight-cylinder,
32-valve engine with a displacement of 4,308 ccm and
mechanical Novitec Rosso twin superchargers produced
656 hp / 482 kW.
For an additional 51 hp / 38 kW of
power the components were again modified extensively.
The two belt-driven superchargers were fitted with
different turbine vanes and maximum boost pressure was
increased to 0.48 bar. Two generously dimensioned
intercoolers with their own supply of cooling water

The electronic engine management
coordinates the interaction of the tuning components
with newly programmed mapping for ignition, injection
and on-board diagnostics, and ensures clean emissions
that meet EURO IV limits.
Enlarged cooling systems for water
and oil guarantee the engine's thermal health.
Also contributing to the thermal
well-being are the Novitec Rosso exposed carbon-fiber
breather grilles on the hood. The carbon-fiber engine

peak torque of 712 Nm at 6,300 rpm elevate the F430
RACE to a performance level attained only by a select
few, markedly more expensive super sports cars.
The sprint from rest to 100 km/h is
shortened by half a second to 3.5 seconds.
After just 10.5 seconds the car
reaches 200 km/h.

In combination with longer gear
ratios available upon request the top speed rises from
315 km/h to 348 km/h.
To be able to safely control this
enormous performance potential, Novitec Rosso also
modifies aerodynamics, tires, suspension and brakes.
Like all other body components the
Novitec Rosso front spoiler was developed in the wind
tunnel. It is attached to the underside of the
production front apron. It lends the F430 an even more
aggressive frontal appearance and reduces lift on the

The sides of the mid-engine sports
car are refined with Novitec Rosso rocker panels. The
Novitec Rosso rear diffuser is custom-tailored to the
standard venturi tunnel and increases downforce on the
rear axle. Upon customer request a rear wing can be
added as well. Black-tinted taillights and lateral
turn signals complete the sporty RACE looks.
Instead of the standard 19-inch
wheels, the three-piece Novitec Rosso NF3 double-spoke
wheels come in 8.5Jx20 inch at the front and 12Jx20 at
the rear axle, with high-performance tires in sizes

discs front and rear.
Handling is one of the strengths of
the Novitec Rosso sport suspension for the Ferrari,
optimized everyday use the other. Contrary to the
production suspension the front can be raised by 40
millimeters at the push of a button to safely navigate
past curbs, driveway entries and speed bumps. Once the
car reaches a speed of 80 km/h the suspension
automatically lowers itself back to normal position,
about 35 millimeters lower than the production car.
Novitec Rosso sport stabilizers reduce body roll and
provide even more direct turn-in.
The Novitec Rosso high-performance
brake system was developed in cooperation with Brembo.
It features six-piston calipers with 380-mm vented and
cross-drilled steel discs on front and rear axles. The
brake delivers maximum stopping power and endurance.
Novitec Rosso also offers custom
options for the interior of all Ferrari F430 models.
The flattened bottom of the
leather/carbon-fiber sport-steering wheel facilitates
entering and exiting the vehicle. The longer Novitec
Rosso carbon-fiber F1-style shift paddles are easy to
use even during fast cornering. Among the available
accessories are also an elongated center console,
carbon-fiber scuff plates and the Novitec Rosso
Supersport seats that can be custom-tailored to the
driver's body. Custom interiors can be crafted in any
leather and Alcantara colors and designs.
