2010 Novitec 599 RACE 848 news, pictures, and information
World Debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2010NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 – this name stands for an absolutely unique high-performance sports car. Only three of these automotive masterpieces will be built. The two-seater car is based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and celebrates its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2010.
Únderneath the striking aluminum skin that sports the unusual color combination of matte white and grey beats an extremely powerful heart: The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 twelve-cylinder twin compressor engine produces 848 hp / 624 kW of power and has a peak torque of 842 Nm. Powered by this engine the car sprints from rest to 100 km/h in less than 3.4 seconds, to 300 km/h in just 23.7 seconds, and reaches a top speed in excess of 345 km/h. This exclusive special model also features an aerodynamic-enhancement kit developed in the wind tunnel, three-piece 21-inch wheels wîth matching sports suspension, a high-performance brake system and exclusive interior options.
The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 is powered by an evolutionary stage of the tried and proven twin-compressor engine conversion for the six-liter V12 four-valve engine of the F599. For an additional power increase of 40 hp / 29.4 kW both mechanical chargers were fitted wîth modified turbine blades, several details of the engine peripherals were modified and the engine electronics were reprogrammed.
The high-performance chargers have an electronically limited boost pressure of 0.48 bars. The chargers are driven by a cogged belt and have their own dedicated oil circuit. A large water-to-air intercooler wîth dedicated water circuit also contributes greatly to the optimal power yield. A custom-developed intake manifold, high-performance injectors and sport air filter round out the engine conversion.
In addition, high-performance headers custom-designed for the compressor engine and the NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel quad sport exhaust system wîth a pipe diameter of 90 millimeters are also installed. The intensity of the exhaust note can be adjusted wîth a little switch on the §teering wheel called the ‘manettino.'
|Engine : 6.0 L., 12-cylinder|
Power: 848 hp
Torque: 621 ft-lbs
The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 specification represents a power increase over the production engine of 228 hp / 167.8 kW to 848 hp / 624 kW at 7,900 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows by 234 Nm to 842 Nm at 6,300 rpm.
Longer carbon-fiber NOVITEC ROSSO shift paddles make shifts of the six-speed F1-Superfast transmission even quicker and more precise. The gearbox also plays a major part in the superior performance of the car. Acceleration from rest to 100 km/h takes just 3.4 seconds, the sprint to 200 km/h a mere 9.6 seconds. With a sprint time for 0 - 300 km/h of just 23.7 seconds the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 solidifies its position among the world's fastest-sprinting sports cars. The car reaches a top speed of more than 345 km/h.
This level of performance places highest demands on well-balanced aerodynamic properties which received their finishing touches in the wind tunnel. The NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler lip reduces lift on the front axle. The rear apron is upgraded visually and aerodynamically wîth a rear diffuser. The NOVITEC ROSSO rear wing further increases downforce.
The NOVITEC ROSSO rocker panels calm the airflow between front and rear wheel arches and their large air ducts optimize the supply of cooling air for the rear brakes.
The unique paint scheme sets the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 even further apart from the rest: The matte-white aluminum body contrasts wîth grey accents such as the roof and parts of the hood to create an especially sporty appearance. Black side markers, black tail lights and third brake light as well as LED backup lights add further visual highlights.
The high-performance equipment also includes three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels shod wîth Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires. The alloy wheels wîth five double spokes measure one inch diameter more than the production wheels. The front axle features size 9Jx20 wheels wîth size 275/30 ZR 20 tires. Size 12.5Jx21 wheels and size 355/25 ZR 21 tires on the rear axle provide excellent traction.
The king-size wheels offer space for the high-performance brake system developed in cooperation wîth brake specialist Brembo. The system uses the largest brake components currently approved for street use. Front and rear axle feature steel discs wîth a diameter of 405 millimeters and six-piston brake calipers. This system represents an optimal combination of braking power and endurance.
The height-adjustable NOVITEC ROSSO sport suspension also allows the damping rates to be set to the individual preferences of the future owners of the super sports car. The suspension's lift function on the front axle can be activated wîth a push of a button in the cockpit. It raises the front of the vehicle by 40 millimeters to safely navigate such obstacles as speed bumps or parking garage ramps. Úpon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the suspension automatically reverts to its original drive position.
The interior of the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 offers an especially exclusive ambiance and features a limited edition plaque wîth the car's serial number. The interior is built to the customer's exact specifications and the customer can choose between a highly luxurious or a Spartan racing flair. The interior appointments include aluminum pedals and foot rest as well as the NOVITEC ROSSO leather/carbon-fiber sport §teering wheel wîth flattened bottom for easier entering and exiting of the vehicle.Source - Novitec Rosso
