With an affinity towards Italian sports cars, Novitec has taken to great lengths to ensure the utmost quality and style for Ferrari and Maserati models alike. We’ve already seen tuning programs for Maserati models such as the GranTurismo and the Quattroporte, so the next logical step for the primed tuning firm is the GranCabrio. Some may have expected this package to have come out long before it has, but perfection takes time and adding 150 HP to the sports car is rather close to perfection. Joining the power upgrade is a top speed that has been increased to 187 mph and a subtle aerodynamic package.
Pricing for the complete GranCabrio tuning program - including exterior and interior modifications - has yet to be announced, but if an engine upgrade is all that is desired then that will cost $26,800.

While a standard Fiat 500 develops around 100 HP, Abarth managed to do a bit of tweaking to the hatchback’s engine to increase this output to 135 HP. This was a pretty good little boost, but in the hands of another tuner, this output could still be improved. And this is where Novitec took the hatchback coupe and gave it a little makeover of its own, providing some engine updates and a couple of minor exterior modifications.
The first kit to come upon the Abarth 500 is the NT4-CORSE power kit. This kit runs 3,016 Euro and boosts the 500’s power to 164hp. Novitec accomplished this by adding a special turbocharger with a more efficient air supply to cool it down. Assisting the engine are larger injection nozzles and a special fuel pressure control. After that it was an optimized air-cleaner box with sport air-filter cartridge and a Novitec CORSE high performance exhaust system to round off the kit.
The second kit from Novitec is a tuning kit called the NT4-CORSE. This package provides a power boost to 212hp with the use of stainless-steel sport mufflers and high performance exhaust systems, available with one or two tailpipes in various shapes. The cost for this kit was not provided, but whatever the base price is, it is slightly increased if the customers opts for sport springs, a height-adjustable sport suspension made from stainless steel, 17 or 18" light alloy wheels, and a carbon front spoiler lip.
The Fiat Punto isn’t exactly a car that tuners rush to get their hands on. But with the right updates, even the Punto can be transformed into something that might get a second look, or maybe even three. Novitec ended up being the tuner up for such a challenge and the result of their hard work is a new upgrade package that improves both the look and performance of the Italian hatchback.
The exterior package includes Novitec headlamp moldings, a new Novitec spoiler, an X-one-look hood with power domes and integrated hood scoops, side sills, a rear spoiler, and a rear molding attachment. The package is finished by 17 or 18 inch wheels.
The 1.4-liter 16V MultiAir turbocharged gasoline engine has been tuned to deliver 160 HP and 246 NM of torque. This new upgrade helps the Fiat Punto sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 7.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 130 mph. As for the diesel version, the 1.6-liter 16V MultiJet now delivers 144 HP and 356 NM of torque.
Novitec Tridente has unveiled a new tuning package for the Maserati Quattroporte luxury sedan, both S and Sport GT S versions. The tuner focused on increasing the engine’s maximum power, but also on improving the car’s aerodynamics.
Thanks to the addition of a new Tridente Sport compressor, the 4.7-liter V8 engine now delivers a total of 590 hp at 7,300 rpm and a peak torque of 572 Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This allows the car to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, to 124 mph in 14.9 seconds, while pushing the car to a top speed of 183 mph.
Next to the engine upgrade the tuner is also offering a set of 21-inch wheels, a height-adjustable coil-over suspension, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. They have also added numerous options for a stylish customization of the interior of the luxury sedan. The options range from a custom-tailored interior crafted from the finest leather or Alcantara to a state-of-the-art multimedia equipment package with TV, Blu-Ray player, and high-speed internet connection.
The German tuning house Novitec is better known for working their magic on Italian super cars like Ferraris and Maseratis, but with the release of the lovable little Alfa Romeo MiTo, the boys at Novitec couldn’t help but change things up a bit. In doing so the aftermarket modifier has created an exclusive tuning program for the compact Alfa city car, dubbed the Novitec PowerJet 2, the German tuned MiTo makes 31 HP more than from factory, currently making 186 HP with its turbocharged 1.4 Liter four cylinder engine and can run from 0 to 60 MPH in just 7.4 seconds.
The entire exterior of the MiTo has been enhanced, receiving a striking facelift with a centrally mounted cup spoiler in front. From the side the MiTo looks much closer to the ground thanks to the Novitec rocker panels and up to a 65 mm drop if you opt for the Novitec coil-overs. The 18 inch rims come in either a glossy silver or flat black, but wither way they are wrapped in a set of 215/35 Pirelli high performance tires. Out back the Powerjet 2 is pushed to the ground thanks to a Novitec designed roof spoiler and rear diffuser, which looks perfect surrounding the Novitec stainless steel sport muffler.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo has already been awarded countless prizes, due to its compact size, fun to drive nature and amazingly good looks. The Powerjet 2 by Novitec should be no different. The German tuners started off with a good package and made it great, if there is an award for the tuned city car of the year, this Novitec built MiTo should be left standing at the top of the list.
Judging by the photos, Novitec Rosso, the Ferrari tuners are not bashful about fiddling with the latest and greatest from Maranello, the Formula 1 Championship celebrating 16 M. Knowing that Novitec have gotten 700 HP from the hardtop Scuderia, expect one very cool convertible.
Although the Ferrari F430 Scuderia is already a powerful car, with a 510 hp engine capable to push it up to 320 km/h, for those who want better performance Novitec released its performance package for the Italian sports car.
Featuring a high performance mechanical supercharger and a generously dimensioned water-cooled intercooler, the car develops 717 hp and and astonishing 722 Nm. With the new power increase the vehicle sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h in just 10.1 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 26.1 seconds and a top speed of 348 km/h. No words about the price yet!
In order to make the Fiat 500 look even better, the well-known tuning company Novitec, specialised in Ferarri and Alfa Romeo cars, unveiled its new body kit for the small vehicle. Characterized by the front lip spoiler, 16 and 17 inch alloy wheels, rear roof spoiler and a double exhaust system, the small vehicle from the Italian manufacturer becomes car even more desirable.
Novitec also re-programmed the ECU of the engines and now the 1.3 JTD turbodiesel develops 83 hp, with 13 hp more than the standard, while the 1.4-liter petrol engine is now capable of developing 131 hp.
Alfa Romeo unveiled the all-new Spider at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. Two years after, Novitec decided is time for the roadster to become a little more sportier.
Even if the tuner did not worked under the hood, the Novitec Spider looks a lot more fun to drive than the standard version. With a new front bumper and rear diffuser, Spider’s aerodynamics are much more underlined. In the rear Novitec also added a new stainless steel rear silencer accentuating the sound and four tailpipes (115x85 mm ovals) that make the back-end looking more aggressive.
The suspension was adjusted from 35 mm to 75 mm; and this next to 20 inch N9 multi-piece rims ensure the best drive ever.
