Even a top-notch sports car can never have enough power. That is why the Novitec Rosso engine technicians developed various performance kits for the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine of the 488 series. As a special feature, the engine tuning can be activated and deactivated in a flash with the Manettino dial on the steering wheel.
To this end, the technicians adapt two Novitec Rosso N-Tronic control modules to the engine electronics of the two-seat car. The modules control the eight-cylinder with newly programmed mapping for injection and ignition and modify the electronic boost pressure control.
To further optimize the power output and make the engine sound even more exciting at the same time, the installation of a Novitec Rosso high-performance exhaust system is advisable. The exhaust comes in various versions including one made from especially lightweight INCONEL, and with optional electronic sound management. Also available are 100-cell high-flow sports catalysts.
In its most extreme evolutionary stage, the turbocharged eight-cylinder with Novitec Rosso engine tuning puts out 76 kW / 102 hp more than the production engine and also adds 132 Nm of torque for a new peak torque of 888 Nm at a low 3,250 rpm. This increase in output to 568 kW / 764 hp at 7,950 rpm naturally also benefits the car??s performance: From rest, the two-seat sports car accelerates to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. Top speed increases to 342 km/h.
The Novitec Rosso performance upgrade not only results in better numbers on paper. Equally fascinating is the even more instantaneous throttle response and the even more powerful in-gear acceleration on the road.
