Novitec Rosso F430 RACE

Featuring extremely sporty interior appointments and a maximum speed of 348 km/h, the 2008 Novitec Rosso F430 RACE becomes the world's fastest and most powerful street-legal cars. Its MSRP starts at 193,277 Euros. The heart of the snow-white racer which is enhanced by the triple-design black stripes, is represented by the NOVITEC ROSSO twin-supercharger engine. The components were modified extensively in order to obtain an additional 51 HP of power, while the temperature of the charge air for maximum power yield is lowered by two generously dimensioned intercoolers with their own supply of cooling water. Furthermore, the engineers fitted the Ferrari engine with an entirely new heat-insulated intake manifold that features larger ports and high-performance air filters. Optimal gas evacuation is provided by low-pressure sport catalysts and the NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system featuring electronically controlled flap. The vehicle covers the 0-100 km/h sprint in only 3.5 seconds and it reaches 200 km/h after 10.5 seconds. The aerodynamics, tires, brakes and suspension were modified in order to safely control this enormous performance potential. The NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler is attached to the underside of the production front apron, thus lending the F430 a more aggressive frontal appearance by reducing lift on the front axle. The technology partner PIRELLI provided high-performance in sizes 235/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20, while 20-inch wheels replaced the standard 19-inch wheels. The sport suspension raises the car by 40 millimetres by simply pushing a button in order to safely navigate past curbs and speed bumps. The suspension automatically lowers itself back to normal position once the car reaches a speed of 80 km/h. Body roll is reduced by NOVITEC ROSSO, thus providing a more direct turn-in. The NOVITEC ROSSo high-performance brake system was developed in cooperation with Brembo, delivering maximum stopping power and endurance. The entering and exiting of the vehicle are facilitated by the flattened bottom of the leather/carbon-fiber sport-steering wheel. The NOVITEC ROSSO Supersport seats can be custom-tailored to the driver`s body and together with an elongated center console, are among the attractive accessories.
