There’s just something about the Ferrari 458 Italia that exudes beauty and performance. Hand it over to the designers and engineers at Novitec Rosso and that beauty and performance is taken to the next level. The tuner has developed a new modification kit and has increased performance.
Keeping exterior changes to a minimum, Novitec Rosso added a new carbon-fiber airbox, a high-performance exhaust system made from nickel-chromium-based superalloy Inconel (weighing in at 46 pounds), a sport exhaust manifolds, sport catalysts and a rear muffler with a sound control flap that can be activated by a button on the steering. We’re not sure how man times you’ll travel more than 205 mph, but Novitec Rosso fine-tuned the body components using a wind tunnel at the University of Stuttgart just incase you want to really fast. The components consist of a carbon fiber lower spoiler, right/left wing flaps, ventilation louvers, fenders, side skirts, mirror housings, rear spoiler and diffuser. Novitec also added a carbon fiber roof panel and engine hood.
Power from the 4.5L V8 has been increased by 39-hp for a total of 600-hp at 9,100 rpm with a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. To enhance performance, ride height has been dropped by 35 millimeters.
The Novitec Rosso Ferrari 458 Italia rides on 21-inch wheels at the front and 22-inches at the back. The wheels are wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires.
