A New Power Kit and Carbon Fiber Body Kit for Ferrari 458 Speciale
Ferrari 458 Speciale drivers should be excited now, since they are given an opportunity to enhance their super cars with a new tuning program, signed by German-based Novitec Rosso. These guys specialize in modifications for Ferrari vehicles and they’ve just created a new power kit and bespoke lightweight body kit for Ferrari 458 Speciale. Well, the four hallmarks of the “refinement” program are: carbon fiber, power, sound and high-tech forged rims. Let’s start with the special carbon fiber body kit. It consists of new front fascia and front lip spoiler, rocker panels, a rear wing and a rear diffuser. The German tuner also offers special carbon fairings for the rear side windows, hood vents and engine cover.
As stated by Novitec, all of the carbon fiber pieces are functional and work to minimize lift on the front axle, benefitting directional stability at high speed. Even though the Ferrari 458 Speciale is a more track-oriented and strong version than the standard mid-engine V8 car, the tuner decided to boost the car’s original specs to 636 hp (a significant rise over the standard model’s 597 hp) and a top speed of 200 mph. These figures are achieved through a weight-saving INCONEL exhaust system which was borrowed from Formula 1 racing, a remapped ECU, two high-performance manifolds, sport catalysts and a rear muffler. Coupled with the carbon fiber construction, the new high-performance exhaust system optimizes both power output and sound.
What makes this Ferrari 458 Speciale even more special is a suspension with an integrated lift system developed by Novitec for the first time. The new suspension system can raise and lower the front of the car by 1,6 inches to help it get over a curb or navigate a parking garage ramp. The last, but definitely not the least hallmark of the program is a new set of Novitec Rosso ‘NF4’ 21″ forged wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero rubber sized 255/30 in the front and 325/25 in the rear respectively. As for the interior, it is available with a series of carbon fiber trim parts and Alcantara leather.
