2011 Novitec California RACE 606 news, pictures, and information
World Debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011: The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 Based on the Ferrari California 606-hp Compressor-V8 for 201.95 mph in a Racing Suit606 hp from an eight-cylinder supercharged engine propel it to a top speed of 201.95 mph and its ultra-sporty racing suit wîth carbon-fiber components fits it like an aerodynamic second skin: The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 based on the Ferrari California will celebrate its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011.
At the heart of the supercar lies the supercharged 4.3-liter V8-engine, which the NOVITEC ROSSO specialists developed specifically for this front-engine sports car. This engine is available for the special model RACE 606 and for any standard California model.
The compressor system consists of a mechanical supercharger driven by the crankshaft via a cogged V-belt. It produces a maximum boost pressure of 0.4 bar. The conversion also includes a water-to-air intercooler, a newly designed intake manifold and larger injectors.
For better exhaust-gas flow the high-performance engine is fitted wîth a flap-controlled NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance exhaust system wîth sport catalysts. The stainless-steel exhaust system features four black-coated tailpipes and offers various sound settings that are controlled by the Manettino button on the §teering wheel. The driver can choose between a more subdued and a markedly sporty exhaust note.
The high-tech components are coordinated by newly calibrated engine electronics that ensure extraordinary power yield, everyday suitability beyond reproach and compliance wîth strict Euro IV emission standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com)
|Engine : 6-cylinder|
Power: 340 hp
Torque: 494 ft-lbs
Powered by this engine the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 delivers impressive performance: The sprint from 0 – 62 mph takes less than 3.8 seconds. Top speed increases to 201.95 mph.
At this level of performance favorable aerodynamic properties are essential. The NOVITEC ROSSO designers went into the wind tunnel to develop body components that further reduce lift on front and rear axle and thus contribute to further optimized directional stability at high speed.
All parts of the aerodynamic-enhancement package are made from matte clear-coated carbon-fiber, making them especially light and yet highly resistant. The front and rear spoilers together wîth the rear diffuser create an optimal aerodynamic balance and are essential for the racing look of the sports car. Rocker panel blades, side air outlets in the front fenders, mirror covers and the rear molding add further thrilling highlights.
Also made entirely from carbon fibers is the hood centerpiece, the radiator grille, the outer skin of the folding hardtop and the taillight surrounds.
The motorsports look is rounded out wîth a matte carbon-fiber coating of the three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels. To further emphasize the wedge shape of the sports car the wheels were manufactured in a staggered combination of size 9Jx21 for the front and in size 11.5Jx22 for the rear axle. The matching PZero high-performance tires in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 315/25 ZR 22 are supplied by technology partner and Formula 1 supplier Pirelli.
Specifically calibrated to this tire/wheel combination are the NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs, which lower the ride height of the Ferrari by some 35 millimeters. They are combined wîth a feature designed to further improve any California's suitability for everyday use. The hydraulic front lift system is activated at the push of a button in the cockpit. It raises the front of the car by 40 millimeters and facilitates navigating speed bumps and parking garage ramps. At a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the front reverts to its original position.
The interior of the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 can also be customized extensively. The options include scuff plates made from the same material as the aerodynamic-enhancement components and longer shift paddles on the §teering wheel.
Úpon customer request NOVITEC ROSSO creates especially exclusive or extremely lightweight interiors in any desired color. Request for more individualization can be fulfilled wîth carbon-fiber elements that match the exterior and a safe-grip §teering wheel covered wîth suede or Alcantara.Source - Novitec Rosso
