Novitec Rosso 848 RACE Based on Ferrari 599 GTB

The name NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 inspires unique high-performance of three automotive masterpieces that will be built. The two-seater car is going to celebrate its international debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and it is based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. Sporting an unusual combination of matte grey and white, the vehicle comprises under its aluminum skin a twelve-cylinder twin compressor engine that raises a power output of 848 HP together with 842 Nm of peak torque. Further visual highlights comprise side markers, black tail lights and third brake light as well as LED backup lights. The 0-100 km/h sprint is achieved in less than 3.4 seconds, 300 km/h are covered in just 23.7 seconds, while the maximum speed is set at 345 km/h. The engine conversion is rounded out by a custom-developed intake manifold, high-performance injectors and sport air filter. Furthermore, exclusive interior options, a high-performance brake system, as well as three-piece 21-inch wheels with matching suspension, represent outstanding features of this exclusive special model. It is possible to adjust the intensity of the exhaust system with a little switch on the steering wheel, which is called the "manettino". Ensuring running smoothness and excellent power yield, the perfect interaction of all conversion components is coordinated by the NOVITEC ROSSO engine management system. The shifts of the six-speed F1-Suoerfast transmission become quicker and more precise due to the longer carbon-fiber NOVITEC ROSSO shift paddles. Lift on the front axle is reduced by the NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler lip as high demands on well-balanced aerodynamic properties, are placed by this level of performance. The push of a button in the cockpit activates suspension`s lift function on the front axle, raising the front of the vehicle by 40 millimeters to safely navigate obstacles. An especially exclusive ambiance is enhanced by the interior which was built to customer`s exact specifications, giving the customer the opportunity to choose between a highly luxurious or a Spartan racing flair.
