Default Novitec Rosso Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Someone at NOVITEC ROSSO was getting bored so thought which is the most powerful stripped out Ferrari that is actually not that powerful?

Hmmm..Eureka! The F430 Scuderia! Why? Because it has "only" 510 hp. So they shoehorned the engine and bumped the power output from standard 510 hp to 717 hp and increased the top speed from 320 to 348 km/h.

They obviously believe that there is no such thing as a too powerful sports car. So the NOVITEC ROSSO specialists developed a special twin-supercharger version of the Scuderia’s four-valve eight-cylinder engine.

Each cylinder bank is equipped with its own toothed belt driven high-performance mechanical supercharger and a generously dimensioned water-cooled intercooler. Boost pressure of the superchargers is limited to 0.48 bar. A newly designed heat-insulated intake manifold with larger ports provides the engine with pre-compressed air. Two high-performance air filters and eight larger injectors complete the engine conversion on the intake side.

The conversion further includes higher-capacity coolant systems for water and oil plus additional dedicated coolant cycles for both compressors and intercoolers.


717 hp / 527 kW at 8,350 rpm represent an increase in maximum power output of 207 hp / 152.3 kW over the production car. Simultaneously peak torque grows from standard 470 Nm to 722 Nm at 6,250 rpm.

Performance of the Scuderia benefits accordingly: The tuned Scuderia sprints from rest to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and reaches 200 km/h after just 10.1 seconds. Only 26.1 seconds pass before the two-seater reaches 300 km/h. But the NOVITEC ROSSO Bi-Kompressor also improves performance beyond those speeds: Equipped with optionally available longer gear ratios top speed increases to 348 km/h.

The custom-tailored NOVITEC ROSSO tire/wheel combination for the Ferrari offers more striking looks and further improved driving dynamics. The stock Scuderia comes with 19-inch wheels while the tuner offers three-piece 20-inch wheels for this car.

The NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 double-spoke wheels were designed to in effect widen the Ferrari’s track thus allowing even higher cornering speeds. They are mounted in size 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 12Jx20 on the rear axle. Technology partner PIRELLI provides custom-tailored high-performance tires in size 235/30 ZR 20 in front and in size 325/25 ZR 20 in the rear.

NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs further lower the center of gravity and also contribute to optimized handling characteristics. The tuner further offers a suspension feature for the Scuderia that optimizes its suitability for everyday use. The innovative hydraulic lift system for the front axle can be activated with a switch in the interior. With seconds the front is raised by 40 millimeters, making entering underground parking garages or driving over low curbs or speed bumps much easier. Upon a second push of the button or automatically when reaching a speed of 80 km/h, the front reverts to its original position.

The NOVITEC ROSSO sport steering wheel with its leather/carbon-fiber material combination features a flattened bottom for easier entering and exiting of the vehicle while its ergonomically correct shape provides optimal grip. The carbon-fiber NOVITEC ROSSO shift paddles are longer than their production counterparts and make manual gearshifts of the F1-SuperFast2 transmission even easier.

Havent they already tried this?
Novitec Red 430 (i guess it was 717) vs Yellow Enzo

But the Enzo needs to be driven inch perfect. One mistake and 430 eats it.
They have already done few drags.

I know someone whos owns a F430 Novitec Rosso here in Riyadh. I should show this to him. He's always buys modded supercars. He had a gallardo he traded for a Superleggra. A porsche turbo he traded for a GT3RS and a F430 he traded for a Novitec Rosso. I wouldn't be surprised if he actually wanted this.
