The most recent car out of the garage of German tuner Novitec is a modified Maserati GranTurismo S. Exterior modifications are subtle, but include a front spoiler for downforce at high speed, rocker panels, a rear lip spoiler, and a rear diffuser, all available in clear-coated carbon fiber finish.
Despite the subtle exterior changes, the engine is where the big difference is in this car. Novitec has added a supercharger system to the stock 440hp 4.7-liter Maserati V8 engine, boosting the power to 600hp. This helps the GranTurismo reach 62mph from a stop in only 4.5 seconds (a 0.4 second increase from stock,) and reaches a top speed of 195mph. Along with the supercharger, Novitec has added a water-to-air intercooler, a new intake system, and larger fuel injectors.
Last on the list is a modified ECU, making sure the car benefits the most from its modifications. The conversion starts at a hefty $32,260.
