NOVITEC ROSSO Tuning for the Ferrari California
606 hp / 446 kW Compressor-V8 and Sporty Accessories
Engine tuning using a supercharger is NOVITEC ROSSO’s recipe for
making the Ferrari California even more powerful and even sportier.
The new supercharged engine represents an increase in power output
for the 4.3-liter V8 from standard 460 hp to 606 hp / 446 kW.
Powered by this engine the 2+2-seater car sprints from 0 - 100 km/h
in under 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 325 km/h.
Custom-tailored NOVITEC ROSSO wheels with diameters of 21 and 22
inches, a sporty aerodynamic-enhancement kit and exclusive interior
options add further striking highlights.
The NOVITEC ROSSO specialists fit the eight-cylinder four-valve
engine of the California with a mechanical charger driven by the
crankshaft via a cogged belt. Boost pressure is limited to 0.4 bars.
The system also includes a water-to-air intercooler, a custom intake
manifold and larger injectors. On the exhaust side the car is
equipped with a NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance
exhaust system with sport catalysts. An integrated flap mechanism
activated by a small switch on the steering wheel called the
‘manettino’ controls the intensity of the exhaust note.
Precision-calibrated mapping for the engine electronics ensure
optimal power yield, perfect reliability and compliance with strict
Euro IV exhaust emission limits.
The NOVITEC ROSSO compressor conversion bumps power output of the
ragtop GT from standard 460 hp / 338 kW to 606 hp / 446 kW at 7,900
rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 485 Nm to 603 Nm at 5,500
The car’s performance speaks volumes: Acceleration from rest to 100
km/h takes less than 3.8 seconds; top speed increases to 325 km/h.
In addition to more power NOVITEC ROSSO also offers exclusive
upgrades for body, suspension and the interior. The body of the
California is dressed up in a sporty yet elegant designer suit which
is also available in a version made from Carbon.
The shape of the NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler was developed in the
wind tunnel and it lends the front-engine sports car an even more
dynamic profile. And with its sophisticated shape the spoiler
reduces lift on the front axle for further improved directional
stability at high speeds.
New rocker panels with integrated airfoils and black side markers
add striking new highlights to the sides of the two-door car. The
aerodynamic concept is rounded out with a rear diffuser and rear
spoiler lip that both further minimize unwanted lift on the rear
axle. A carbon-fiber rear molding adds the finishing touches to the
NOVITEC ROSSO look for the Ferrari California.
Gorgeous three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 wheels help further improve
driving dynamics. The combination of size 9Jx21 wheels in front and
size 11.5Jx22 on the rear axle further emphasizes the wedge shape of
the sports car. Technology partner Pirelli supplies high-performance
tires custom-tailored to this vehicle. The tires are mounted in size
255/30 ZR 21 on the front axle. In the rear tires in size 315/25 ZR
22 provide optimal traction.
The NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs are calibrated specifically to this
tire/wheel combination. They also lower the ride height of the
Ferrari by some 35 millimeters. The suspension engineers have
further developed a custom feature that makes the California even
better suited for everyday use. A hydraulic lift system for the
front axle can raise the front of the car by 40 millimeters at the
push of a button. This makes it easier to navigate obstacles such as
speed bumps or parking garage ramps. The front reverts to its
original position at a second push of the button or automatically
upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.
NOVITEC ROSSO can also fulfill Ferrari California owners’ requests
for interior customization. Captivating NOVITEC ROSSO exclusive
interiors are masterfully crafted to perfection from leather and
Alcantara, and are available in a multitude of colors and upholstery
