Press Release) NOVITEC ROSSO Edizione 747: Ciao Scuderia!
Horsepower, 738 Nm, 0 –300 km/h in 22.9 Seconds, a Top Speed of 351
and a Spectacular Color Combination
It takes its name from its rated power output of 747 horsepower: To
mark the farewell of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, NOVITEC ROSSO
presents the Edizione 747. The world’s leading tuner of the super
cars from Maranello turns the lightweight model into one of the most
powerful super sports cars of our time. And with its matte yellow
and grey paintjob it is also one of the most spectacular-looking
cars of our time. At the heart of this special model lies the new
NOVITEC ROSSO 747 Bi-Compressor engine that boosts power output of
the V8 that normally produces 510 hp / 375 kW by 237 hp / 174 kW.
Driving performance improves accordingly: With a sprint time for 0 –
100 km/h of less than 3.4 seconds, 9.4 seconds to 200 km/h and just
22.9 seconds to 300 km/h the NOVITEC ROSSO model is the most
powerful and quickest Scuderia in the world. Just as impressive is
the top speed of 351 km/h.
If you don’t go forward, you go backwards. The NOVITEC ROSSO
specialists have developed a new evolutionary stage of the NOVITEC
ROSSO Bi-Compressor version of the four-valve eight-cylinder engine
to commemorate the end of the production run of the Ferrari 430
The Edizione 747 specification is the ultimate high-end version and
is limited exclusively to the Berlinetta model of the Ferrari 430
Scuderia. The layout of the engine conversion corresponds to all
NOVITEC ROSSO Bi-Compressor conversions for the mid-engine sports
car. Each cylinder bank is fitted with an intercooler and a
cogged-belt-driven high-performance supercharger with a maximum
boost pressure increased for this version to 0.53 bar. The
intercooling system features its own dedicated water circuit. The
radiator of the system is located behind a special centrally placed
air duct in the front apron.
For an optimized supply of cooling air to the engine bay the
specialists have developed a special underbody with integrated air
deflector. The precompressed air is routed to the combustion
chambers using a custom-tailored heat-insulated intake manifold with
larger cross sections. Eight high-flow injectors ensure adequate
fuel supply for the compressor conversion.
The NOVITEC ROSSO engine management system perfectly synchs all high
performance components and also increases redline speed by 200 rpm.
To guarantee perfect durability even under high ambient temperatures
the conversion also includes more effective radiators for water and
The result of this labor is a unique symbiosis of superior power and
excellent running smoothness. With a rated power output of 747 hp /
549 kW at 8,500 rpm the NOVITEC ROSSO Edizione 747 Bi-Compressor
engine surpasses its naturally aspirated brethren by 237 hp / 174
kW. The increase in torque from standard 470 Nm to 738 Nm at 6,300
rpm represents an enormous plus in low-speed power. Driving
performance is in an automotive class of its own: A sprint time of
less than 3.4 seconds for 0 –100 km/h is just as unique as the
sprint time of 9.4 seconds to 200 km/h. After 22.9 seconds the
NOVITEC ROSSO Edizione 747 already reaches the 300-km/h mark. Upon
customer request the two-seater can be equipped with longer gear
ratios for a top speed of 351 km/h.
In addition the NOVITEC ROSSO Edizione 747 is also the perfect eye
catcher: The two-tone special matte yellow and grey paintjob
emphasizes the sporty shape of the body and lends the Scuderia
pedigreed racing looks. To complement these looks NOVITEC ROSSO
installs black taillights, side markers and reflectors. The racing
theme dominates also the engine’s appearance: All carbon-fiber
engine components come with a matte finish.
This color scheme continues on the NOVITEC ROSSO tire/wheel
combination custom-tailored for the Scuderia. The diameter of the
wheels surpasses the production wheels by one inch. The three-piece
20-inch NF3 double-spoke wheels in sizes 8.5Jx20 in front and 12Jx20
on the rear axle are fitted with Michelin Pilot Cup sport tires in
sizes 245/30 ZR 20 in front and 315/25 ZR 20 in back. Another
measure to achieve even more agile and direct handling is the
installation of NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs, which lower the ride
height of the Ferrari by some 30 millimeters.
To lend the Scuderia better suitability for everyday use despite the
lowering NOVITEC ROSSO offers an innovative hydraulic lift system
for the front axle. At the push of a button in the cockpit the front
is raised by 40 millimeters. It allows drivers to safely navigate
parking ramps, low curbs and speed bumps. After safely passing over
the obstacle, another push of the button reverts the suspension to
its original position. If the button is not pushed the front end
reverts to its original position automatically once the car reaches
a speed of 80 km/h.
NOVITEC ROSSO also adds sporty and exclusive highlights to the
interior of the Edizione 747. The Supersport steering wheel features
a combination of leather and carbon-fiber and offers perfect grip.
Its flattened bottom also makes entering and exiting the vehicle
easier. To complement the steering wheel NOVITEC ROSSO offers
carbon-fiber shift paddles. They are longer than their production
counterparts and make manual shifting of the F1-SuperFast2
transmission even easier. In addition, upon customer request NOVITEC
ROSSO equips the coupe with a two tone interior perfectly matched to
the exterior colors.
