A while back we presented you NOVITEC's first upgrades for the Ferrari California and now the tuner is back with yet another package that will squeeze even more power from the hot Italian supercar.

By fitting the 4.3-litre V8 with a new supercharger the NOVITEC Ferrari California is now able to produce 606 HP (446 kW) and 485 Nm of peak torque which means it can accelerate from 0 to 100 Km/h in less than 3.8 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 325 Km/h. These new performance figures are pretty good considering the stock version Ferrari California packs 460 HP.

Of course increased output is not enough, so this new NOVITEC Ferrari California has also been given various custom components at the exterior and interior, plus new sports springs that lower the car by 25 mm and a hydraulic nose lift system that can raise the front axle by 40 mm. 

Novitec Rosso press release :

Engine tuning using a supercharger is NOVITEC ROSSO's recipe for making the Ferrari California even more powerful and even sportier. The new supercharged engine represents an increase in power output
for the 4.3-liter V8 from standard 460 hp to 606 hp / 446 kW. Powered by this engine the 2+2-seater car sprints from 0 - 100 km/h in under 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 325 km/h. Custom-tailored NOVITEC ROSSO wheels with diameters of 21 and 22 inches, a sporty aerodynamic-enhancement kit and exclusive interior options add further striking highlights.

The NOVITEC ROSSO specialists fit the eight-cylinder four-valve engine of the California with a mechanical charger driven by the crankshaft via a cogged belt. Boost pressure is limited to 0.4 bars.



The system also includes a water-to-air intercooler, a custom intake manifold and larger injectors. On the exhaust side the car is equipped with a NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance
exhaust system with sport catalysts. An integrated flap mechanism activated by a small switch on the steering wheel called the 'manettino' controls the intensity of the exhaust note.

Precision-calibrated mapping for the engine electronics ensure optimal power yield, perfect reliability and compliance with strict Euro IV exhaust emission limits.  The NOVITEC ROSSO compressor conversion bumps power output of the ragtop GT from standard 460 hp / 338 kW to 606 hp / 446 kW at 7,900 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 485 Nm to 603 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The car's performance speaks volumes: Acceleration from rest to 100 km/h takes less than 3.8 seconds; top speed increases to 325 km/h.

In addition to more power NOVITEC ROSSO also offers exclusive upgrades for body, suspension and the interior. The body of the California is dressed up in a sporty yet elegant designer suit which is also available in a version made from Carbon.

The shape of the NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler was developed in the wind tunnel and it lends the front-engine sports car an even more dynamic profile. And with its sophisticated shape the spoiler reduces
lift on the front axle for further improved directional stability at high speeds.

New rocker panels with integrated airfoils and black side markers add striking new highlights to the sides of the two-door car. The aerodynamic concept is rounded out with a rear diffuser and rear
spoiler lip that both further minimize unwanted lift on the rear axle. A carbon-fiber rear molding adds the finishing touches to the NOVITEC ROSSO look for the Ferrari California. Gorgeous three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels help further improve driving dynamics. The combination of size 9Jx21 wheels in front and size 11.5Jx22 on the rear axle further emphasizes the wedge shape of the sports car. Technology partner Pirelli supplies high-performance tires custom-tailored to this vehicle. The tires are mounted in size 255/30 ZR 21 on the front axle. In the rear tires in size 315/25 ZR 22 provide optimal traction.

The NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs are calibrated specifically to this tire/wheel combination. They also lower the ride height of the Ferrari by some 35 millimeters. The suspension engineers have further developed a custom feature that makes the California even better suited for everyday use. A hydraulic lift system for the front axle can raise the front of the car by 40 millimeters at the push of a button. This makes it easier to navigate obstacles such as speed bumps or parking garage ramps. The front reverts to its original position at a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.

NOVITEC ROSSO can also fulfill Ferrari California owners' requests for interior customization. Captivating NOVITEC ROSSO exclusive interiors are masterfully crafted to perfection from leather and Alcantara, and are available in a multitude of colors and upholstery designs.
