Tailor-made genuine carbon-fiber body components were developed in the wind tunnel to give the lightweight-construction sports car an even more thrilling appearance. With a power increase to 468 kW / 636 hp, NOVITEC ROSSO propels the two-seater to a new top speed in excess of 330 km/h. The high-performance exhaust system made of INCONEL, a material used in Formula 1 racing, not only optimizes the power output and sound, but also saves weight compared with the production model. Tailor-made 21-inch NOVITEC ROSSO forged wheels, a modified suspension with front lift feature, and exclusive interior options round off the upgrade for the Italian sports car. The active aerodynamics of the Ferrari 458 Speciale posed a special challenge for the NOVITEC ROSSO designers. They developed body components made of especially light yet high-strength carbon fiber, which lend the lightweight-construction version full-blooded racing looks. The combination of NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler and front blade not only upgrades the production bumper of the Speciale visually, but also minimizes negative lift on the front axle, benefitting directional stability at high speeds. In addition, fairings for the central air inlet in the bumper and the trunk lid create an even more pronounced racing look. The final touch is provided by the carbon-fiber moldings for the exterior mirrors and the door triangles. The sides of the lightweight-construction sports car receive an even more thrilling profile with the strikingly styled NOVITEC ROSSO rocker panels and the carbon-fiber moldings with gill-shaped profile for the rear side windows. To reduce negative lift on the rear axle and thus achieve an optimal aerodynamic balance, NOVITEC ROSSO upgrades the 458 Speciale with a rear wing and a carbon-fiber diffusor that like the production part features an electrically adjustable center section. Special air deflectors for the left and right air inlets on the rear side components were developed as part of the innovative aerodynamic-enhancement concept. Not only do they ensure an optimized supply of cooling air for the engine and oil coolers, but they also route the relative wind directly over the rear wing profile thanks to their special design. The full-blooded racing look is completed with additional carbon-fiber applications such as vent grilles or the fog lamp surround. In addition, the roof skin and the hood are also made of carbon fiber. To match the carbon-fiber components, NOVITEC ROSSO offers tailor-made accessories such as black tail lights made even more conspicuous by carbon-fiber covers, black turn signal repeaters and the likewise black auxiliary LED brake light. At the front and back, 21-inch NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 forged rims specially developed for the sports model also play a crucial role in the spectacular appearance of the refined 458 Speciale. Thanks to state-of-the-art forging technology, the nine and twelve inch wide alloys with delicate double spokes are among the lightest of their kind in this size. Technology partner Pirelli supplies PZero high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 325/25 ZR 21. Another NOVITEC ROSSO high-tech engineering feat is the hydraulic suspension system for the 458 Speciale. The front of the car can be raised by 40 millimeters at the push of a button in the cockpit to be able to drive over a curb or navigate a parking garage ramp. The front reverts to its original po...
