Unique/Novitec Ferrari F430 Calavera

The first design concept of the Calavera bavarian design house is A Super Sports Car for the streets. The number of units is limited to eleven and they boast a design based on the Ferrari F430, developed exclusively in collaboration with Ferrari Specialist Novitec Rosso and Airbrush Artist Knud Tiroch, an inspiring team. Novitec is a well-known player on the tuning scene as it received recognition and attention for their Turbo- and Supercharged motors for Alfa Romeo in the early 90s, thus making a serious statement to professionals all over the world. Belonging to Europe's finest Airbrush artists, Knud Tiroch has the responsability to create exclusive designs on interior and chassis. Exclusive designs are developed by Unique Sportscars, aiming to reach those customers who want more than off-the-shelf. The daytime lights offer a more aggressive look, without compromising its aerodynamics. Furthermore, the illuminated engine compartment is extremely eye-catching, setting the tone for the brute rear and 707 HP engine. 3 months are necessary to complete all custom work which will definitely create a new sensation among the enthusiasts. Its maximum speed of 348 km/h, the 0-100 km/h sprint covered in 3.5 seconds and the 200 km/h reached in only 10.5 seconds, are a brilliant combination of modern technology. The standard 19-inch wheels were replaced by 20-inch wheels in sizes 8.5Jx20 in front and 12Jx20 on the rear axle. The NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler was developed in the wind tunnel and it is attached to the underside of the production apron, thus reducing lift on the front axle and lending the F430 a more aggressive frontal appearance. More direct turn-in is provided and body roll is reduced by NOVITEC ROSSO sport stabilizers.
