Tuning: Ferrari California by Novitec Rosso

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The Novitec Rosso tuners' work on the Ferrari California is nothing short of phenomenal. Prepare to be enthralled with the styling and performance tweaks included in the package that we're about to discuss.

Unfortunately, pricing has yet to be released. Let's start with the performance. Novitec Rosso added power and some aerodynamic benefits.

In particular, the 4.3-liter V8 engine has been updated to now be able to generate 500 hp (368 kW) and 518 Nm of torque. This is a considerable improvement over the standard model's 460 hp and 485 Nm.

The tuners installed a new engine management system (with custom mapping for injection and ignition) and a stainless-steel exhaust system with metal catalysts and a flap actuator operated from the Manettino switch on the steering wheel.

In addition, the car's ride height was lowered by 35 mm by adding sport springs. The hydraulic lift system raised the front end by 40 mm.

These changes are claimed to allow drivers to safely navigate parking garage ramps or speed bumps. Upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h, the front reverts to its original position automatically. A second push of the button does the trick too.

Novitec Rosso created styling that's made to impress. The Ferrari California now has a carbon fiber body kit which includes a front spoiler, attractive side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a trunk-mounted spoiler.

The car's looks are enhanced further by the three-piece NF3 wheels, which measure 9Jx21 front and 11.5Jx22 rear, outfitted with Pirelli tires. Novitec Rosso offers a treat to car owners, allowing them to customize the interior with an unlimited number of leather and Alcantara combinations.
