Beautiful style upgrade combines with serious boost in performance.
Experts in tuning all things Italian, Novitec Rosso has just unveiled its latest project based on the Ferrari California T. Starting with the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 underhood, the Maranello maestro created a performance kit that combines N-Tronic plug-and-play modules and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system. The result is output of 646 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 86 horses and 74 lb-ft, helping the California T to hit 62 mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 201 mph.
The sound of the exhaust ranges from subtle rumble to supercar scream thanks to a butterfly valve that can be remotely controlled from the cockpit via a Switchtronic feature. Visually, the California T has been refined with an aerodynamic kit available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish, which is made up of a front spoiler, tailor-made inserts for the hood air intakes, new radiator grille, rocker panels, side flaps, rear diffuser and lip spoiler. Other exterior touches include covers for the side air outlets, covers for the side mirrors and tailllamps, and a new roof skin for the folding hardtop.
A new set of one-piece five double-spoke alloys come staggered 21/22 inches front/rear, while custom sport springs drops the Ferrari by 35 mm with a hydraulic front lift system helping to raise the car by 40 mm at the touch of a button. Novitec also supplies a bespoke interior swathed in various shades and patterns of leather and Alcantara.
