Novitec Rosso is the division of the aftermarket manufacturer that is exclusively dedicated to tuning prancing horses from Maranello, and they do a damn fine job of it. This can be seen with their latest take on the Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M, the high performance version of the factory tuned mid engine roadster will be produced in a limited number of only 499.
Novitec starts off by twin supercharging the 4.3 Liter V8, adding on items like a special intake manifold, high flow air filters, larger injectors and a reprogrammed engine computer to make nearly 700 HP from the high revving eight cylinder. To make sure that operating temperatures stay in a manageable range each cylinder bank gets its own water to air intercooler. The meticulous tuning results in a maximum output of 696 HP, 186 HP over the normal Scuderia 16 M.
The exterior is upgraded with understated touches like blacked out lens covers, but monstrous 20 inch wheels will stick out like a sore thumb. Measuring 12 inches wide in the rear, the rollers are wrapped in 325 series Pirelli rubber and ride on a set of Novitec sport springs. The upgraded suspension also feaures a convenient hydraulic lift that raises the nose to clear obstacles like curb stones and steep inclines, don’t worry about catching any air, the system automatically lowers itself at 80 MPH if you don’t. The Novitec Rosso tuned Scuderia Spider 16M sprints from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds and can hit 300 Km/h after only 23.8 seconds from takeoff and goes past 330 Km/h to a top speed of 205 MPH.

Noveitec has made a name for itself tuning Ferraris, so when it says it built its “own” supercar that looks a lot like a Ferrari F430, we might be a little suspicious. But regardless of its origins, cool is cool, so we’ll let this one slide.
It’s Noveitec’s 20th anniversary, and its giving the world the TuLesto as a present. It’s powered by a 4.4-liter V8 with dual supercharges that produces 777 hp. That’s quite an improvement if the F430’s 490 hp 4.3-liter V8 was used as the engine basis.
The car utilizes materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum (hmmm, the F430’s chassis is already made from aluminum.) The total weight of the car is about 2770 lbs, about 320 lbs. lighter than a F430. This featherweight status helps the TuLesto achieve a claimed 0 to 60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.
There will be only a handful of people helping Novitec celebrate two decades of life. The TuLesto will be limited to only eleven units.

Novitec Rosso unveiled the F430 Race tuning kit. With a power of 707 hp and a peak torque of 525 hp, the F430 Race can hit a top speed of 216 mph and makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds. It is one of the world’s fastest and most powerful street-legal cars and starts at $295,365.
The F430 Race is powered by a eight-cylinder, four-valve engine with a displacement of 4,308 ccm and mechanical NOVITEC ROSSO twin superchargers engine that produces 656 hp. For the extra 51 hp 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 lower the temperature of the charge air for maximum power yield.
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. The 300-km/h barrier is shattered after 29.9 seconds. In combination with longer gear ratios available upon request the top speed grows from 315 km/h to 348 km/h.

For the forthcoming Cabrio season Novitec is offering the refinement of the F430 Spider. Already available on the Coupe version the engine with double compressor is now also available on the black sport Spider version.
The Bi-turbocharger is offering the F430 Spider a maximum power of 656 hp at 8200 rpm. Both compressors work with modified turbine blades at a maximum load pressure of 0,38 bar. The Spider can make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 350 km/h.
The tuning package also includes: a separated oil-circuit, a heat insulated induction tract, water-cooled intercoolers with water pumps and additional radiators, upgraded fuel injectors and reinforced drive belts with dynamic tensioner.
All this next to carbon fiber, new spoiler and 20" wheels make from the Spider the every-summer dream.
If the 490 hp of a Ferrari F430 is not good enough for you, Novitec Rosso is now offering you a customized F430 with no less than 707 hp! And what a color! Is just me or black is just the right color for a car with such power?
Novitec Rosso will launch in Frankfurt a new body kit for the Ferrari 599 GTB. The body kit includes: new front lower spoiler, side skirts with larger air intake openings, side flaps, rear wing and rear diffuser.
Finding the design that matches the vehicle and the optimal aerodynamic function are the two main pretensions by the construction of body parts. The Novitec Rosso aerodynamic program for the Ferrari F430 accomplishes this accordingly. Should the observer’s taste decide about the design, the aerodynamic function is documented through expendable tests in the wind tunnel. These proof tests, usual by the development of the automobile manufactures, are extremely rare in the automobile tuning branch, although they are essential.
There are two ways to be distinctive when you modify cars - subtle and bling. One thing we like about Novitec Rosso designs is that they are subtle. Unlike the tuner parts that some companies bolted to unsuspecting Ferraris in the 1980s and ’90s, the aerodynamic components from this company are designed to integrate with the styling of the car rather than stand out like a sore thumb.
