Nobody defines the terms "wretched excess" and "gilding the lily" quite like Novitec. Whereas countless other aftermarket tuners make their mark by transforming ordinary road cars into fire-breathing monsters, Novitec starts with the already-hottest-performing cars to grace black asphalt and then endeavors to improve upon them. In this case, the German tuning house is improving upon its own improvements with the Novitec Rosso Ferrari F430 Bi-Compressor Evoluzione.

"Evoluzione" is the magic word in both the Ferrari and Novitec houses, denoting the ludicrous taken to the extreme. (Think of insane examples like the Ferrari 288 GTO Evoluzione and you're on the right track.) In this case, the latest release from Novitec Rosso starts with their previous twin-supercharged 636-horsepower F430 and raises the stakes by an additional 20 horses, bringing total output up to an Enzo-rivaling 656hp.

In addition to the power spike – resulting from the twin Rotrex superchargers, intercoolers and remapped ECU – Novitec arms its monstrous creation with a full aerodynamic package, wheel and tire upgrade, bigger brakes, beefed-up suspension and the works. If you're the kind of customer who'd be interested in improving upon a Ferrari in the first place, chances are you'd likely be up for re-doing the interior, and Novitec offers a full range of custom leather retrofits that will turn the rare into the positively unique.

      SECKSIE! ~650hp in a mid-engined V8 Ferrari that looks better than pretty much any other car in recent production. (and WAY better looking than the Enzo, even if the Enzo is more technically advanced.)

      If I had the cubic dollars required to modify ferraris, I wouldn't do quite the same things, aesthetically, though. I would probably go with Rosso Corsa, or one of Ferrari's blue paint colors, rather than white.

      I would stay with the stock 430 front end with Novitec underspoiler... I like the shark-nose. I'd revert back to the 360 Challenge blackout mesh and CF rear tail light panel and tail lights (fill in tail light cavities in the rear fenders, not a fan of the 430/Enzo tail lights, or the 599's single round per side.) I'd also use the 360's full-mesh vents on each side of the rear hatch glass.

      The classic bigger tail lights, and the challenge style panel (355 and 360) looks fantastic. Other than that, the 430 has it all over the 360. I would keep the 430's rear diffuser and lower bumper, cut flat and modified to fit the 360CS vented tail panel.

      I would go with polished Novitec wheels, and the twin-rotrex and exhaust upgrade, brake, and handling packages. Not sure about the wing spoiler... might be a bit too much.

      That is one sexy pony! And I even like the stripes.

      The top speed is about the same as the Enzo, but the aceleration appears to be significantly slower.
      • 7 Years Ago
      that 0-60 time is pretty generous considering the stock f430 can do it in 3.9
      Im betting with 656 hp its closer to 3 seconds

      ah man, was I too late with my tip this morning? :(

      No shout out for me.....

      Car still looks hot though!

      The car should weigh more than an Enzo which is why it has slower acceleration (similar power + more weight = slower acceleration). Similar power + similar aero drag = similar top speed.

      Just give me the go-fast and handle-better parts please :)
