One of the tuners that specialize in Ferrari tuning as done it again. Novitec Rosso is ready to offer a new tuning package for the recently introduced 488 Spider, the facelift of the old and popular 458 Italia Spider. Novitec Rosso will offer a sporty outfit from naked carbon and tailor-made wheels with diameters of up to 22 inches.
Apart from the looks, the designers above all aimed for aerodynamic efficiency, which they achieved with the help of wind tunnel testing. Tailor-made aerodynamic-enhancement components are available. The front is upgraded with a spoiler lip, a surround for the central air intake, and side flaps. The aerodynamic-enhancement components also reduce lift on the front axle at high speeds. The rocker panels give the car a lower and sleeker visual stance. Carbon applications for the door mirrors, and black turn signals are also there.
The back-end diffuser for the production bumper and the rear spoiler also optimize the aerodynamic efficiency. Owners of 488 Spider wishing for an even more spectacular-looking rear end can upgrade with the large Novitec Rosso rear airfoil. Carbon surrounds for the taillights and the black LED third brake light add further visual details.
To be able to navigate over a curb or down a parking garage ramp, the front end of the car can be raised by 40 millimeters at the touch of a button in the cockpit. The front end reverts to its original position at a second touch of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.
The 488 Spider is fitted with two Novitec Rosso N-TRONIC control modules, which provide the ECU with specially calibrated mapping for injection and ignition while increasing the peak boost pressure. This benefits not only the power delivery, but also results in further optimized throttle response and in-gear acceleration.
In the highest upgrade stage, the engine produces an extra 102 hp of power and 132 Nm more torque. With a new output of 772 hp at 7,950 rpm and 892 Nm torque at a low 3,250 rpm, the open-top two-seater sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 342 km/h.
