Default Novitec Rosso Debuts Ferrari California Race 606

Quote:
Novitec Rosso has taken FerrariĎs front-engine California and outfitted it with a supercharged powerplant that brings performance to 606-hp (from 460-hp) and 444 ft-lbs of torque (from 357 ft-lbs) out of the 4.3L V8. The supercharged powerplant will be available from Novitec Rosso for the special Race 606 model and any standard California.

Along with the supercharger is a water-to-air intercooler, a new intake manifold and larger fuel injectors to ensure the 4.3L V8 stays adequately fuel-fed with the additional boost. Novitec then outfits the California with their stainless-steel exhaust system sporting four black-coated tips.

Horsepower wasnít all that Novitec was after with the Race 606 California, as they took Ferrariís famed exotic to the wind tunnel in order to develop some efficient and attractive aerodynamic pieces to complement the package. With essential pieces made from lightweight carbon fiber, the aerodynamic package includes front and rear spoilers, rear diffuser, rocker panel blades, side air outlets on the front fenders, mirrors covers, rear molding, hood center piece, radiator grille, and the outer skin on the folding hardtop and taillight surrounds.

For wheels, Novitec has outfitted the California with their three-piece NF3 wheels featuring a matte carbon fiber coating. The setup used on the Race 606 is a staggered set of 21◊9 and 22◊11.5 matched with Pirelli P-Zero rubber. Lowering the vehicle 1.37-inch is Novitecís lowering kit which also allows the front end of the vehicle to be raised 1.57-inch to help navigate speed bumps.

Lastly interior upgrades can be specific through Novitec to further customize your California or Race 606 model.

I like that it's not over the top. Some tuners can really muck up a Ferrari.

Should have come like that from the factory - might not have been such a flop.

I would call it a fatty, but the Vette is only 300 pounds lighter, but Ferrari had gotten pretty porky with the FR cars as of late... Well actually, even the 90's FRs were heavy.

Agreed,

And too art-school esoteric and ugly in their aesthetics across the line of current products.

The 550/575, and 430 were hot, and possibly the last of the timelessly handsome Ferraris.

Superchargers where? That engine bay looks to be a bitch to work in.

The Golden State should sue Ferrari for defamation.
