Released at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Ferrari 458 Speciale was an upgraded version of 458 Italia with more power. The 458 Speciale’s engine boosted 597 bhp and 540Nm of torque. But some people just can’t get enough. To fullfill the needs of these people, Novitec Rosso has revealed a new program for the 458 Speciale.
Novitec Rosso has developed a lightweight body kit that includes new spoiler and blade for the front bumper, carbon-fiber moldings with gill-shaped profile for the rear side windows, a rear wing and a carbon-fiber diffusor with an electrically adjustable center section.
Novitec Rosso 458 Speciale will also get an option of various performance kits. Top of the line tuning stage boosts the power output of the 4.5-liter eight-cylinder engine to 627 bhp at 9,250 rpm. Peak torque jumps to 572 Nm at 5,550 rpm. A slightly higher rpm redline results in a top speed of more than 330 km/h.
Novitec Rosso has worked on the exhaust system of the car. It consists of two high-performance exhaust manifolds, sports catalysts and a rear muffler. The exhaust system has two matte black-coated tailpipes with a 100 millimeters diameter that produce “an optimized power yield and a sportier sound”. Material used for the exhaust systems in Formula 1, INCONEL, is incorporated to make the system seven kilograms lighter than the stock one.
