The 458 Speciale in its original form achieves 605 hp at 9,000 rpm. Novitec bumps this by 31 hp to 636 hp at mind-boggling 9,250 rpm.

Novitec now provides a solution for those that feel their Ferrari 458 Speciale doesn't have enough carbon fibers parts, lacks power or sounds too muted.

With a power increase to 636 hp (468 kW), Novitec propels the two-seater to a new top speed in excess of 205 mph (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. A version with electronic sound management is optionally available.

Tailor-made 21-inch Novitec forged wheels, a modified suspension with front lift feature, and exclusive interior options round off the upgrade for the Italian sports car.

Active Aerodynamics

The active aerodynamics of the Ferrari 458 Speciale posed a special challenge for the Novitec 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 front spoiler and front blade not only upgrades the production bumper of the Speciale visually, but also minimizes negative lift on the front axle. In addition, fairings for the central air inlet in the bumper and the trunk lid create an even more pronounced racing look.

The sides of the lightweight-construction sports car receive an even more thrilling profile with the strikingly styled Novitec rocker panels.

To reduce negative lift on the rear axle and thus achieve an optimal aerodynamic balance, Novitec upgrades the 458 Speciale with a rear wing and a carbon-fiber diffuser 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.

To match the carbon-fiber components, Novitec 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.
