Ferrari 458 Speciale by Novitec Rosso

Article by Christian A., on July 8, 2014

Back in February, Novitec Rosso unveiled its first take on the Ferrari 458 Speciale but didn’t offer any upgrades for the engine. Today, Novitec is back with an updated tuning kit that consists of a new front spoiler, a front blade, carbon fiber moldings a new carbon fiber rear wing, two special air deflectors for the left and right air inlets on the rear side components and a new rear air diffuser that features an electrically adjustable center section.

The design is completed by the 21-inch Novitec Rosso forged wheels and by the fairings for the central air inlet in the bumper and the trunk lid. Novitec Rosso also offers carbon-fiber vent grilles, fog lamp surround. The German tuner installed a hydraulic suspension system that can raise the front of the car by 40 mm at the push of the button in order to drive over a curb or navigate a parking garage ramp.

The front can be lowered or raised at speeds of up to 80 km/h or 50 mph. Moreover, the new Novitec Rosso sport springs lower the ride height by 30 mm, while sport stabilizer bards improve handling.

The 4.5-liter V8 engine was boosted from 605 hp and 540 Nm of torque to 606 hp and 572 Nm of torque thanks to recalibrated mapping for ignition and injection. As a result, top speed increased to more than 330 km/h or 205 mph.

A new Novitec Rosso high-performance exhaust system was added too and consists of two high-performance manifolds, sport catalysts and a rear muffler.

As an option, Novitec offers a version with electronica sound management that can adjust the sound between discreet and powerful like in motor racing.

The new exhaust system features two matte black-coated tailpipes having a diameter of 100 mm and developed specifically for the Ferrari 458 Speciale. The interior can be updated too and Novitec Rosso promises to fulfill even the most discriminating requests.
