Novitec Rosso upgrades the Ferrari 458 Spider

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 6, 2012

Novitec Rosso is the first tuner to take on the Ferrari 458 Spider and we must admit that we do like their style. As you can see from the photos, carbon fiber was the material chosen by the well-known tuner in order to build the aerodynamic components such as the two-piece front spoiler, side flaps, side skirts, rear spoiler and rear air diffuser.

Also made from carbon fiber is the bezel surrounding the rear fog lamp. The rear wing can be replaced by a carbon rear spoiler lip. The design is completed by the Novitec Rosso NF4 forged wheels with diameters of 21 and 22 inches. Still, the tuner also offers the three-piece Novitec Rosso NF3 wheels with diameters of 20, 21 and 22 inches as an option. The car was also fitted with a hydraulic suspension system which can raise the front by 40 millimeters in order to enter an underground parking garage or other obstacles such as speed limiters.

Novitec Rosso sport sway bars are available to further minimize body roll in fast corners and to improve turn-in. A new set of sport springs lower the ride height by 35 millimeters. In order to boost the engine output, the Novitec Rosso Performance Level 1 upgrades the 4.5-liter V8 with a special carbon-fiber air box with modified air routing as well as a special high-performance exhaust system. According to the official press release, the exhaust system was manufactured by Inconel and is made using extremely lightweight material also seen on exhausts for Formula 1 engines.

The exhaust system offers an extra 39 hp and is with 21 kilograms lighter than the production exhaust. After this conversion, the total output delivered by the engine is 609 hp / 448 kW at 9,100 rpm and a peak torque of 569 Nm at 5,400 rpm. With these numbers, the car reaches a top speed in excess of 325 km/h or 202 mph. The interior of the car was also upgraded with tasteful carbon-fiber touches on the center console, bezels above the speedometer and the climate sensor as well as with shift paddles that are longer than their production counterparts.
