Novitec Rosso Tweaks the Ferrari 599 GTB, Gains More Power and New Aero Kit

Novitec Rosso Tweaks the Ferrari 599 GTB, Gains More Power and New Aero Kit


If you happen to belong to the exclusive club of Ferrari 599 GTB owners and would like to spruce up your Prancing Horse supercar without going to extremes, Novitec Rosso has released a new tuning package with subtle cosmetic and performance upgrades. Starting with the V12 engine, €10,490 or about $15k (what did you expect, it's a Ferrari...) will get you Novitec's Stage 3 performance kit that consists of new engine electronics and a complete stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system.

The result is a 40HP boost in output for a total of 660HP. Furthermore, the maximum engine speed is raised to 8,550 rpm which lifts top speed by 5 km/h to 335 km/h or 208mph.

There's also a Novitec Rosso sport suspension that not only allows both ride height and damper rates to be set according to each driver's individual preferences but also features a system that raises the nose of the car by just 40mm or 1.5 inches at the push of a button to safely overcome speed bumps and driveway ramps.

Exterior mods include a front lip spoiler, new rocker panels with larger air vents, a not-so-discreet rear wing and a rear diffuser plus black taillights, side markers and auxiliary brake light as well as the new LED rear fog lights.

The 599 GTB's upgraded looks are complemented by a set of 20-inch (front) and 21-inch (back) double-spoke alloys that are shod in 275/30 ZR 20 tires up front and 355/25 ZR 21 at the rear, and are available in a number of different color combinations.

Put your hands a little deeper in the pockets and the German tuner will more than happily upgrade the 599 GTB's interior with an array of goodies including a leather/carbon-fiber sport steering wheel with flattened bottom, aluminum foot pedals and foot rest, and even custom-made leather or Alcantara upholstery.
