Ciao Scudiera!

Novitec Rosso Edizione 747

German-based Ferrari tuner Novitec Rosso recently unleashed their new bi-compressor supercharged F430 Edizione 747 to bid farewell to the F430 Scudiera. The new powerhouse boasts of 747-horsepower at 8500rpm and 738Nm of torque at 6300rpm, capable of going from 0-300km/h in 22.9 seconds and tops out at 351 km/h.

The limited upgrade is exclusive to the Berlinetta model of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The conversion uses a similar layout to all Novitec Rosso bi-compressor conversions with each cylinder bank fitted with an intercooler. Extra power is provided by a cogged-belt-driven high-performance supercharger with a maximum boost pressure of 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 more efficiency, a specially developed underbody with integrated air deflector optimizes the flow of cold air into the engine bay. 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. Upgraded radiators and oil coolers are also added to guarantee durability under high temperatures.

A Novitec Rosso engine management system perfectly syncs all high-performance components and also increases redline speed by 200 rpm. The result is a generous increase of 237-horsepower from the normally aspirated form with a generous bump of 268 Nm in torque.

It also has performance test to back up its numbers: 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. Hitting the 300 km/h mark just after 22.9. The two-seater version can also be equipped with longer gear ratios for a top speed of 351 km/h.

New sport springs have also been installed to give more agile and direct handling, which lower the ride height of the Ferrari by some 30 millimeters. An innovative hydraulic lift system has been added to 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.

A 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 installed black taillights, side markers and reflectors. The racing theme also dominates the engine’s appearance: All carbon-fiber engine components come with a matte finish.

The Edizione 747 rolls on 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.

Interior upgrades include the Supersport steering wheel features a combination of leather and carbon-fiber with flattened bottom making entering and exiting the vehicle easier. Carbon-fiber shift paddles were added to complement the new steering wheel. The longer paddles also make manual shifting of the F1-SuperFast2 transmission easier. A two-tone interior is also available on option to match the racey exterior.
