Geneva Motor Show is only a week away and every company is trying to prove they are better than the competition by releasing highly advanced products. For car makers this battle is all about green cars, but for tuners, mercifully, it’s all about power and beauty! This is Novitec Rosso’s special delivery for the Geneva show, which is called the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848.
In brief, this is a phenomenal machine! Based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Novitec 848 packs a massive punch in form of 848 hp and 842 Nm of peak torque. this is a huge increase over 599’s standard 612hp. As a result, this car goes from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 345 km/h.
Longer carbon-fiber NOVITEC ROSSO shift paddles make shifts of the six-speed F1-Superfast transmission even quicker and more precise. The gearbox also plays a major part in the superior performance of the car.
And the good thing about this car is that they didn’t ruin it by an ostentaious body kit. Although at first glance it look a bit like Mansory Stallone 599, but it’s much more discrete and therefore cool. In fact that subtle kit on this car, including front spoiler, rear diffuser and boot lid wing, has more aerodynamic purposes than showing off.
The unique paint scheme sets the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 848 even further apart from the rest: The matte-white aluminum body contrasts with grey accents such as the roof and parts of the hood to create an especially sporty appearance. Black side markers, black tail lights and third brake light as well as LED backup lights add further visual highlights.
They have also fitted it with three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 which come in size 9Jx20-inch with size 275/30 ZR 20 tires for front and 12.5Jx21-inch wheels and size 355/25 ZR 21 for the rear axle. Not only these set of wheels and tires have a great impact on the car’s handling, they also look astonishingly good! And inside them they house high performance 405 millimetersdiscs and six-piston brake calipers. It also comes with a sport suspension system which has a lift system capable of raising the front-end by 40mm when needed.
The interior package, which can also be customized, include aluminum pedals and foot rest as well as the NOVITEC ROSSO leather/carbon-fiber sport steering wheel with flattened bottom for easier entering and exiting of the vehicle.
