Ferrari 488

Novitec Rosso always did good to Ferrari toys, either it was the F12 N Largo, or any other model, they were all charming, and crazy on the road. Now that there is an Aperta version of the impressive Ferrari 488 GTB, Novitec Rosso allowed themselves to tweak it. And the result is just phenomenal.

Tweaks involved the exterior, and performance. First of all, the engine, Novitec Rosso did not mess with the initial 3.0L turbocharged 488 GTB engine, but they developed two special control modules that are responsible to feeding the ECU with ECU with new mapping for the injection and ignition phases. There’s also a new exhaust system (available with ‘electronic sound management’) and an optional exhaust made from Inconel (an alloy of nickel containing chromium and iron, resistant to corrosion at high temperatures). All of this means another 101 bhp to the initial engine, which means that the Novitec Rosso 488 spider produces 772 bhp @7950 rpm and 892 Nm of torque @3,250 rpm. Top speed is expected to be around 342 km/h with a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 2.8 seconds (which is 0.2 quicker than the standard model).

For the exterior changes, Novitec fitted the 488 spider with a new carbon-fiber front spoiler lip, air intake surround, side flaps and rocker panels. At the rear, there is an additional diffuser element and a rear spoiler lip as well as carbon surrounds for the taillights and blacked third brake light.  The interior depends on the buyer’s taste Novitec offers a variety of choices in their configurator. Price too, depends on options fitted to the car.
