Ferrari Tuners

There is such a thing as tuners for automobile companies like Ferrari and Novitec Rosso is the world's leading tuner of sports cars from Maranello. There is also Edo Competition, Hamman, and Mansory.
New from Novitec is a twin-supercharger Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The German tuner of Italian hardware raised the horsepower to 717hp and 532lb-ft of torque from 510hp and 347lb-ft it is fitted with when it comes from the factory.
Novitec Rosso was not timid with the parts list. It started with bolting twin superchargers and dual intercoolers, one for each cylinder bank, alongside a new engine-management system, high-performance air filters, and large injectors. It also added high-capacity fluid coolant systems and additional plumbing for the compressors and intercoolers.
Novitec says it has tuned the Ferrari 430 into a 0-to-62-mph time of 3.5 seconds and reaches 120 mph in 10 seconds.
For handling, Novitec lowers the car's center of gravity with sport springs. There's also an adjustable suspension that can raise the car as much as 1.6 inches for driveway entry and clearing speed bumps.
According to Novitec, the car's new top speed is 216mph.
The shell gets the bumblebee treatment: a yellow coat with black stripes, and three-piece black and yellow rims. Owners can choose any color combo they want for the interior.
Take a new F430 and add $73,583 to find out how much it costs.
Have a good day and I wish you well.
