Novitec Rosso has further refined the already potent Ferrari California, which is now called the Race 606  as an indication to the new output, and which will be on display at the tuner's stand in Geneva next month.

The Novitec Rosso Race 606 Ferrari California uses a supercharged 4.3-litre V8 which features a custom compressor system, a water to air intercooler, a newly designed intake manifold and larger injectors in order to develop 606 HP (446 kW) @ 7,900 rpm and 603 Nm of torque @ 5,500 rpm. These figures are up from the standard 460 HP (338 kW) and 485 Nm of torque, and in terms of performance the Novitec Rosso Race 606 Ferrari California is now able to hit 100 Km/h from a stand still in 3.8 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 325 Km/h.

A new stainless steel exhaust has also been fitted along with various carbon fiber components which make the car more aerodynamic ans also offer an ultra sporty appearance.

NOVITEC ROSSO press release :

World Debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011:
The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 Based on the Ferrari California
606-hp / 446-kW Compressor-V8 for 325 km/h in a Racing Suit

606 hp / 446 kW from an eight-cylinder supercharged engine propel it to a top speed of 325 km/h and its ultra-sporty racing suit with carbon-fiber components fits it like an aerodynamic second skin: The NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 based on the Ferrari California will celebrate its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011.

At the heart of the supercar lies the supercharged 4.3-liter V8-engine, which the NOVITEC ROSSO

specialists developed specifically for this front-engine sports car. This engine is available for the special model RACE 606 and for any standard California model.

The compressor system consists of a mechanical supercharger driven by the crankshaft via a cogged V-belt. It produces a maximum boost pressure of 0.4 bar. The conversion also includes a water-to-air intercooler, a newly designed intake manifold and larger injectors.

For better exhaust-gas flow the high-performance engine is fitted with a flap-controlled NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance exhaust system with sport catalysts. The stainless-steel exhaust system features four black-coated tailpipes and offers various sound settings that are controlled by the Manettino button on the steering wheel. The driver can choose between a more subdued and a markedly sporty exhaust note.

The high-tech components are coordinated by newly calibrated engine electronics that ensure extraordinary power yield, everyday suitability beyond reproach and compliance with strict Euro IV emission standards.

The NOVITEC ROSSO engine conversion bumps power output from standard 460 hp / 338 kW to 606 hp / 446 kW at 7,900 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque jumps from 485 Nm to 603 Nm at 5,500 rpm.

Powered by this engine the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 delivers impressive performance: The sprint from 0 – 100 km/h takes less than 3.8 seconds. Top speed increases to 325 km/h.

At this level of performance favorable aerodynamic properties are essential. The NOVITEC ROSSO designers went into the wind tunnel to develop body components that further reduce lift on front and rear axle and thus contribute to further optimized directional stability at high speed.
 
All parts of the aerodynamic-enhancement package are made from matte clear-coated carbon-fiber, making them especially light and yet highly resistant. The front and rear spoilers together with the rear diffuser create an optimal aerodynamic balance and are essential for the racing look of the sports car. Rocker panel blades, side air outlets in the front fenders, mirror covers and the rear molding add further thrilling highlights.

Also made entirely from carbon fibers is the hood centerpiece, the radiator grille, the outer skin of the folding hardtop and the taillight surrounds.

The motorsports look is rounded out with a matte carbon-fiber coating of the three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels. To further emphasize the wedge shape of the sports car the wheels were manufactured in a staggered combination of size 9Jx21 for the front and in size 11.5Jx22 for the rear axle. The matching PZero high-performance tires in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 315/25 ZR 22 are supplied by technology partner and Formula 1 supplier Pirelli.

Specifically calibrated to this tire/wheel combination are the NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs, which lower the ride height of the Ferrari by some 35 millimeters. They are combined with a feature designed to further improve any California’s suitability for everyday use. The hydraulic front lift system is activated at the push of a button in the cockpit. It raises the front of the car by 40 millimeters and facilitates navigating speed bumps and parking garage ramps. At a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the front reverts to its original position.

The interior of the NOVITEC ROSSO RACE 606 can also be customized extensively. The options include scuff plates made from the same material as the aerodynamic-enhancement components and longer shift paddles on the steering wheel.

Upon customer request NOVITEC ROSSO creates especially exclusive or extremely lightweight interiors in any desired color. Request for more individualization can be fulfilled with carbon-fiber elements that match the exterior and a safe-grip steering wheel covered with suede or Alcantara.
