599 GTB Fiorano gets 808hp with
27 December 2008.
What can a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
and a twin compressor talk about, when put together?
That's what Novitec Rosso wanted to
know. All told, they agreed on a new balance of
power: 808hp, 823 Nm and more than 340 km/h.
As superlatives remain insufficient
without a global approach, the Novitec Rosso tuning is
accompanied by an aerodynamic enhancement kit
developed in the wind tunnel, three-piece 21-inch
wheels with correspondingly calibrated sports
suspension, a high-performance brake system and
exclusive interior options.
the 6-litre V12 power and torque by
more than 30%.
599 GTB Fiorano Novitec Rosso
relies on mechanically supercharging the six-litre
four-valve V12 engine of the F599 GTB with two
compressors to boost both power and torque by more
than 30% each.
Compared to the production engine,
the Novitec Rosso Bi-Kompressor V12 gains 188
hp / 138.4 kW for a new maximum of 808hp / 594 kW
at 7,800 rpm (+30.3 %, up from
620hp/7600 rpm) At the same time torque grows by 215
Nm to a new peak of 823 Nm at 6,300 rpm (+35.3%,
up from 608 Nm/5600 rpm).
tuned F599 sprints from rest to 100
km/h in 3.5 seconds.
In combination with the F1-Superfast
transmission (its six speeds are faster and more
precise to select thanks to longer Novitec Rosso
carbon shift paddles), the tuned F599 sprints from
rest to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
200 km/h are reached after 9.7
seconds. The sprint time of 25.5 seconds from 0 - 300
km/h places the tuned two-seater among the fastest
accelerating sports cars in the world, while top speed
is more than 340 km/h.

their own dedicated oil circulation.

The pre-compressed air is then
cooled down by a large intercooler that itself
is cooled by a dedicated water cycle. A specially
designed intake manifold with high-performance
injectors and sport air filter round out the
conversion on the intake side.
Additionally, Novitec Rosso
installs custom exhaust manifolds calibrated to
the twin compressors, with a stainless-steel quad
sport exhaust system featuring a tailpipe diameter of
90 millimetres. The exhaust note can be adjusted using
the "manettino" switch on the steering
wheel, from "sporty yet discrete" to
"definitely sounds like racing."

With the increased demands on aerodynamics,
the Novitec Rosso designers went into the wind tunnel
to develop aerodynamic-enhancement components to make
the 599 more aerodynamically efficient.

than the originals.
The exterior can be further refined
with black side markers and black taillights as well
as with LED auxiliary brake light and reversing light.
The extensive high-performance
package for the 599 also includes custom-tailored
Novitec Rosso NF3 light-alloy wheels with high-performance
tires from Pirelli.
The three-piece wheels with
five double spokes are one inch larger in diameter
than the original ones. The front axle is fitted with
size 9Jx20 rims and 275/30 ZR 20 tires. The rear
wheels come in 12.5Jx21 with 355/25 ZR 21 tires.
The king-size wheels offer space
for the high-performance brake system developed in
cooperation with Brembo. The brake uses the
largest components currently legal for street use.
The front and rear brakes feature
steel discs with 405-millimeter diameter and
six-piston callipers, for a corresponding combination
of maximum stopping power and endurance.

The suspension also offers a useful
lift feature that is activated by pushing a button in
the cockpit. The front of the car can be raised by
40 millimetres (see opposite photo
movement) to navigate safely past obstacles such as
parking ramps or speed bumps without scraping the
front apron. The suspension automatically reverts to
its original position once the car reaches a speed of
Novitec Rosso offers many options

At the heart is the Novitec Rosso
Supersport Bi-Kompressor engine that bumps power
output from the standard V8, 4.3-litre engine with
510hp / 375 kW to 717hp / 527 kW and increases
top speed from 320 to 348 km/h.
The Novitec Rosso specialists
developed a special twin-supercharger version of the
Scuderia's four-valve eight-cylinder engine. Each
cylinder bank is equipped with its own toothed belt
driven high-performance mechanical supercharger and a
generously dimensioned water-cooled intercooler.
Boost pressure of the superchargers
is limited to 0.48 bar.
A newly designed heat-insulated
intake manifold with larger ports provides the engine
with pre-compressed air. Two high-performance air
filters and eight larger injectors complete the engine

output of 207 hp / 152.3 kW over the production car (+40.6%).
Simultaneously peak torque grows from standard 470
Nm to 722 Nm at 6,250 rpm (+53.6%).

The tuned Scuderia sprints from 0
to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and reaches 200 km/h
after 10.1 seconds. Only 26.1 seconds pass before
the two-seater reaches 300 km/h. Equipped with the
optionally available longer gear ratios, top speed
increases to 348 km/h.
The custom-tailored Novitec

driving dynamics. The standard Scuderia comes with
19-inch wheels while the tuner offers three-piece
The Novitec Rosso NF3 double-spoke wheels
were designed to widen the Ferrari's track, thus
allowing even higher cornering speeds. They are
mounted in size 8.5Jx20 for the front and 12Jx20 on
the rear. Pirelli provides custom-tailored
high-performance 235/30 ZR 20 tires at the front and
325/25 ZR 20 in the rear.
Novitec Rosso sport springs
further lower the centre of gravity and contribute to
optimised handling characteristics. The tuner offers a
suspension feature that optimises suitability for
everyday use. The hydraulic lift system for the
front axle can be activated with a switch in the
interior. Within seconds, the front is raised by 40
millimetres, making entering underground
parking garages or driving over low curbs or speed
bumps much easier. Upon a second push of the button or
automatically when reaching a speed of 80 km/h, the
front reverts to its original position.

of the F430.
Novitec Rosso refines the exterior
of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia with discrete components
such as black tail lights, lateral turn signals and
reflectors, while other exclusive and functional
details are available for the interior of the
lightweight-design Ferrari, such as the Novitec Rosso
sport steering wheel with its leather/carbon-fibre
material combination and flattened bottom for easier
entry to or exit from the vehicle, while its
ergonomically correct shape provides optimal grip.
The carbon-fibre Novitec Rosso
shift paddles are longer than their production
counterparts and make manual gearshifts of the
F1-SuperFast2 transmission even easier. Any imaginable
colours can be chosen for the Novitec Rosso treatment
of the interior.
