Ok, so you just dropped $230,000 on a new Ferrari Scuderia only to get it home and realize it only has 510 hp. Heck, Ford’s Shelby GT500 will put out more than that with nothing more than a K&N air filter swap. Well, help is on the way from Novitec Rosso, a leading Ferrari Tuner.
Novitec introduces a sophisticated tuning program for the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. At its heart is the Novitec Rosso Supersport Bi-Kompressor engine that bumps power output from stock 510 hp to 717 hp and increases top speed from 199 MPH to 217 MPH. Peak torque improves from 347 lb-ft. to 533 lb-ft. at 6,250 rpm.
Each of the engine’s eight-cylinders is equipped with a dedicated toothed-belt driven high-performance mechanical supercharger and a generously dimensioned water-cooled intercooler. Boost pressure of the superchargers is limited to 7 psi. 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.
Precise synchronization of all Novitec Rosso performance components is controlled by a newly programmed engine management system that provides perfect running smoothness as well as maximum power output and unquestionable durability. The conversion further includes higher-capacity coolant systems for water and oil, plus additional dedicated coolant cycles for both compressors and intercoolers. The tuned Scuderia sprints from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 3.5 seconds and reaches 125 MPH after just 10.1 seconds.
As with all Novitec Rosso kompressor conversions, installation is performed by their technicians flown-in from Germany at a CEC tuning center.
