The NOVITEC ROSSO designer suit for the Ferrari 458 SpiderCarbon aero kit, superlight forged wheels, 609 hp and 202 mph
Haute Couture at the highest performance level: NOVITEC ROSSO not only tailors a thrilling designer suit made from lightweight clear-coated carbon fiber for the Ferrari 458 Spider. Superlight forged wheels in a unique staggered 21- and 22-inch combination together wîth a sophisticated suspension system featuring hydraulic ride-height adjustment make the drop-top sports car even more dynamic. In addition, there is a power increase to 609 hp and an equally lightweight high-performance exhaust system wîth sound management by means of a butterfly valve. Further custom details such as black lamps or interiors custom-tailored to the owner's individual preferences substantiate NOVITEC ROSSO's leading global position in tuning and refining the sports cars from Maranello.
Carbon fiber is not only the top choice in Formula 1 racing, but also for the NOVITEC ROSSO aerodynamic-enhancement components for the Ferrari 458 Spider. The designers concentrated not merely on striking looks, but first and foremost on aerodynamic efficiency, which was fine-tuned in the wind tunnel of the Úniversity of Stuttgart.
The standard front fascia is upgraded wîth a two-piece front spoiler and side flaps for further reduced lift at high speeds. To round out the carbon-fiber look the wings in the air scoops and the ventilation grilles in the front fenders are also manufactured from this material. Tasteful carbon-fiber covers on the exterior mirrors complete the ensemble.
NOVITEC ROSSO carbon-fiber sill skirts can give the two-seater an even more sporty side appearance.
Also made from this high-tech material are the NOVITEC ROSSO diffuser and the bezel surrounding the rear fog lamp. To generate even more downforce on the rear axle the Spider can be upgraded either wîth a tasteful rear spoiler lip or a rear wing – both made from carbon fiber as well.
Further NOVITEC ROSSO styling features are black taillights, which are also emphasized visually wîth carbon-fiber bezels, black side markers and the black auxiliary LED brake light.
The new NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 forged wheels perfectly combine visual assets wîth increased driving dynamics thanks to reduced unsprung weight. To give the Ferrari even more of a wedge-shaped appearance a staggered tire/wheel combination wîth diameters of 21 and 22 inches was developed.
Despite their king-sized dimensions – 9Jx21 in front and 12Jx22 on the rear axle – these wheels wîth five delicate double spokes weigh just 21.8 lbs and 29.7 lbs. This makes the NOVITEC ROSSO wheels some of the lightest of their type in these sizes. Technology partner Pirelli supplies PZero high-performance tires in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22. The popular three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels wîth diameters of 20, 21 and 22 inches will continue to be available as an option.
Another NOVITEC ROSSO high-tech development is the hydraulic suspension system for the 458 Spider. At the push of a button in the cockpit the front of the car can be raised by 40 millimeters to navigate safely past curbs or to enter an underground parking garage. At a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the front reverts to its original position. In addition, NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs lower the ride height of the Spider by some 35 millimeters. It goes without saying that the standard damper adjustment of the 458 Spider is retained fully.
NOVITEC ROSSO sport sway bars are available to further minimize body roll in fast corners and to improve turn-in.
This makes the 458 Spider perfectly suited for an extra helping of power. The most powerful version to date is the NOVITEC ROSSO Performance Level 1. In this case the 4.5-liter V8 is fitted wîth a special carbon-fiber air box wîth modified air routing and a NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance exhaust system. The exhaust system, manufactured from INCONEL, a highly stress-proof yet extremely lightweight material also used on exhausts for Formula 1 engines, consists of two high-performance manifolds, sport catalysts and a rear muffler. The latter is optionally available wîth a butterfly valve for changing the exhaust note wîth the Manettino on the §teering wheel. The sport exhaust plays not only a crucial role in the increase in power by 39 hp, it also weighs 46.2 lbs less than the production exhaust.
In order to perfectly coordinate the interaction of all high-performance components the engine conversion also comprises newly programmed engine electronics wîth custom mapping for ignition and injection.
After the conversion the engine produces a peak power of 609 hp at 9,100 rpm and a peak torque of 420 lb/ft at 5,400 rpm. Even more important for day-to-day driving situations are the even more aggressive throttle response and the moderately higher redline speed for further improved shift points. The Ferrari 458 Spider wîth NOVITEC ROSSO engine tuning reaches a top speed in excess of 201 mph.
NOVITEC ROSSO goes beyond simply offering more power. The engine design itself is of an extremely sporty character wîth clear-coated carbon-fiber covers that turn the engine compartment into a feast for the eyes as well.
NOVITEC ROSSO also adds some outright racing highlights in the interior wîth tasteful carbon-fiber touches such as the center console that has been extended downward, the bezels above the speedometer and the climate sensor as well as wîth shift paddles that are longer than their production counterparts. Naturally there are also exclusive NOVITEC ROSSO all-leather interiors in any color imaginable.
