Novitec upgrades the Ferrari 458 Speciale

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 1, 2014

Back in September, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Ferrari introduced the all-new 458 Speciale a.k.a. a hardcore version of the 458 Italia. Still, a powerful version for Ferrari is not enough for some drivers. So, who you’d going to call? No, not Ghost Busters… that’s from another movie! You will going to call Novitec!

As a result, Novitec decided to modify the Ferrari 458 Speciale and got rid of the beautiful stripes showed by the standard version, painted in the Grigio Silverstone gray, added a new set of black forged wheels with yellow edge and darkened the taillights.

Moreover, Novitec also installed a new set of sport springs. For those who don’t know, the Ferrari 458 Speciale is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine that generates 605 hp @ 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

 With these numbers, the 458 Speciale hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3 seconds and 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds. These performances were not enough for Novitec who added 17 hp in the Stage 1 package. Still, we are sure that Novitec is working on a more powerful version of the vehicle, so stay tuned!
