NOVITEC ROSSO tuning for the new Ferrari California T An extra 63.3 kW / 86
hp, 323 km/h and sporty accessories
Engine tuning to deliver an additional 63.3 kW / 86 hp that give the
two-seat car a top speed of 323 km/h, and a wide range of sporty options for
the bodywork, suspension and interior: NOVITEC ROSSO, the leading global
refinement specialist for the sports cars from Maranello, now also offers
tuning for the new Ferrari California T.
The new 3.8-liter eight-cylinder twin-turbo engine provides the perfect
starting point for powerful tuning. The NOVITEC ROSSO engine technicians
developed a new performance kit for the California T that unleashes the
hidden reserves of this engine without compromising its durability.
Extensive series of tests were conducted to develop special mapping for the
two NOVITEC ROSSO N-TRONIC plug-and-play modules, which are adapted to the
electronic engine management system of the vehicle.
As a result, the tuned V8 develops an impressive 475 kW / 646 hp at a low
7,400 rpm and produces its peak torque of 856 Nm at a low 4,600 rpm - 101 Nm
more than the stock engine! Performance on the road benefits accordingly:
the tuned two-seater sprints to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds. Top speed
jumps to 323 km/h.
On the road, the NOVITEC ROSSO power upgrade not only delivers better
performance, but also even more instantaneous throttle response and even
more in-gear pulling power.
As the perfect complement to the engine tuning, NOVITEC ROSSO sells various
versions of precisely calibrated stainless-steel high-performance exhaust
systems for the new Ferrari California T. The version offering sound
management by means of actively controlled butterfly valve is available with
the NOVITEC ROSSO SWITCHTRONIC feature, which allows regulating the sound
between subtly quiet and powerfully sporty by radio remote from inside the
In addition to more power, NOVITEC ROSSO of course also offers refinement
options for the bodywork, suspension and cockpit. The appearance of the
two-seater is upgraded with a sporty-elegant aerodynamic-enhancement kit,
which is optionally available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish. The
shape of the NOVITEC ROSSO front spoiler was optimized in the wind tunnel
and lends the front-engine sports car an even more dynamic profile. What's
more: its sophisticated design also reduces lift on the front axle, which in
turn optimizes directional stability at high speeds.
Tailor-made inserts for the two air intakes in the hood also lend the
California T a further sharpened profile, as do the gill-shaped covers for
the side air outlets in the front fenders and the clear-coated carbon-fiber
covers for the two exterior mirrors. In addition, there is also a
carbon-fiber radiator grille.
The sides of the sports car receive some added dynamic lines with the
NOVITEC ROSSO rocker panels and side flaps. These aerodynamic-enhancement
components also improve the airflow between the front and rear wheel arches.
NOVITEC ROSSO offers a clear-coated carbon-fiber roof skin for the folding
hardtop of the California T.
NOVITEC ROSSO offers full-blooded motor racing looks with the rear diffuser
and the clear-coated carbon-fiber diffuser fins as well. The NOVITEC ROSSO
rear spoiler lip upgrades the rear appearance and minimizes lift on the rear
axle. A carbon-fiber rear trim panel as well as clear-coated carbon-fiber
covers for the tail lamps round out the sporty looks for the Ferrari
The NOVITEC ROSSO staggered alloys with diameters of 21 inches at the front
and 22 inches at the rear look stunning and enhance the driving dynamics
even further. In sizes 9Jx21 at the front and 12Jx22 on the rear axle, the
one-piece and especially lightweight NF4 high-tech forged wheels with five
double spokes put even more emphasis on the wedge shape of the sports car.
Technology partner Pirelli supplies high-performance tires specifically
tailored to this vehicle. They are mounted on the front axle in size 255/30
ZR 21. Tires of size 315/25 ZR 22 at the rear provide optimal grip.
The NOVITEC ROSSO sports springs, which lower the ride height of the Ferrari
by about 35 millimeters, were designed specifically for this tire/wheel
combination. In addition, the suspension specialists developed a feature
that makes the California T even better suited for everyday use. The
hydraulic front lift system makes it possible to raise the front end by 40
millimeters from inside the cockpit. As a result, entrance ramps of
underground parking garages or speed humps are easier to navigate. By
slightly pressing the button, or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80
km/h, the front end reverts to its original position.
The personal requests of every owner of a Ferrari California T with regard
to the interior can also be made reality. Exclusive NOVITEC ROSSO interior
appointments crafted from the finest leather and Alcantara captivate with
their perfect craftsmanship and the multitude of available upholstery colors
