Novitec Tridente Maserati GranTurismo S – Click above for an image gallery

Some people believe in tuning exotics, some prefer to leave them alone. But everybody's got to respect Novitec. The German tuning house, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, is one of the established names in tuning Italian exotica. The company's Novitec Rosso line is known for strapping superchargers to Ferraris to delirious effect, but a couple of years ago they turned out a decidedly low-key modification to the Maserati Quattroporte. Now the Novitec Tridente line is back at work on the GranTurismo S, producing the supercharged super-coupe you see here.

By adding a supercharger, tinkering with the ECU and replacing the exhaust system, Novitec has managed to coax out an extra 165 horsepower from the Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V8 for a whopping 600 ponies. Managing all that extra power is a retuned KW suspension gripping massing 20 and 21 inch wheels front and back, which team up with the carbon fiber body kit to add even more aggression to one of the industry's meanest-looking GTs. See for yourself in the gallery below.

      I'm curious. Between cars that come straight from the dealers and turnkey tuner specials like this, does anybody know how many 600bhp plus cars there are for sale now? They used to be rare. When I started following motor sports in the 60's even 600 horsepower race cars were rare except for dragsters.

      Keep the wheels, keep the power, lose the carbon fiber.

      This car doesn't need it.

        +1.

        The front is just.. wow. The back (more specifically the tail lights) I feel like I'm already used to seeing on the new Audi A4/A5/A6.

        Me too except the damn portholes!!!! And it's not even because people just slap em on their Escalades or anything else to make it "gangster" but they're just ugly to me. Disrupts the flow of an otherwise beautiful car

        Yea these things are seriously good looking. No need to be extreme with design if you can make a really handsome car like this.
