2005 Novitec Rosso F430 Bi-Compressor

Novitec Rosso can look back over several years of installing compressor engines, particularly in both Ferraris and Alfa Romeos. Since the introduction of their 360 package, they have proven that the mighty Ferrari drive train is not immune to well developed upgrades.

The aim of the Rosso F430 project, like its forerunner F360, was not to make any fundamental changes but rather to create an exclusive and extensive range of extras for the discerning individual.

After undergoing and extensive test program, the centerpiece of the F430 program, a Rosso Bi-Compressor, is ready for delivery. The 27 000 Euro package includes twin superchargers and a list of parts to surround them that produce 636 bhp! (474 kw). Because the supercharger develops good boost, low in rpm range, the F430 now has more usable torque which peaks to 470 ft lbs at 6250 rpm.

And, the Rosso Bi-Compressor doesn’t deliver just deliver near Enzo power, Novitec ups the ante in all other areas. For instance a dual adjustment suspension, 8-pot ceramic discs and longer ratio gear set are available.

In the aesthetic department, Notivec deliver their Supersport kit which includes a front spoiler & bumper, rear skirt, rear wing and side panels. Each panel can be made in carbon fibre. The car is finished off with 19 and 20 inch wheels which mimic the Ferrari Enzo design.

For the interior, Novitec offer a leather interior kit that covers most of the inside with a leather of the cutomers choice. The Supersport also comes with twin race seats.

Novitec now has a network of personnel to handle requests in more than 30 countries world-wide. Cars can now be delivered in both Europe and America.
