Popular Ferrari tuner Novitec Rosso, as expected, just got their hands on the new Ferrari California. They’ve applied their usual touches to it, focusing on both style and performance, though the changes to the California are a bit more subtle than their usual “HEY LOOK AT ME!” design style.
The first thing Novitec did was add some downforce to the Ferrari by developing a bolt-on front spoiler, rear diffuser, and rear lip spoiler in addition to their own side rocker panels. All parts, of course, are made from 100% carbon fiber.
New three-piece Novitec wheels round out the styling package, sporting 21-inchers in front and bigger 22-inch wheels in the rear. To compliment the more aggressive styling, Novitec lowered the car by about 35 mm. To make sure drivers don’t scrape the front of the car too often, they’ve also added a hydraulic lift system to raise the car while coming out of steep driveways, going over speed bumps, or navigating a parking garage.
The best improvement of the Novitec-tuned Ferrari California is the engine work. They’ve managed to squeeze out an additional 40 hp to the 4.3-liter V8 engine, bringing the total output up to 500 hp. They’ve managed this increase in power by retuning the ECU and adding a new high performance exhaust system with a butterfly valve actuated from the Manettino switch located on the Ferrari’s steering wheel.
Novitec rounds out the package by offering a nearly unlimited choice of leather and alcantara interior colors.
Price wasn’t given in the press release as usual, but expect it to be significantly higher than the Ferrari California’s base $192,000 price tag. Check out the photo gallery below:
