…Novitec Rosso makes a mean Ferrari 599?

Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599

Novitec Rosso kept the body modifications to a minimum, but when your bi-kompressor (twin supercharged) Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano makes 808 horsepower and gets to 60 in just 3.5 seconds, you don’t need flashy wings and carbon fiber, because your brake lights will gladly do all the necessary talking.

The exterior of the Ferrari didn’t exactly remain stock however, as an aerodynamic-enhancement kit developed in the wind tunnel keeps the car planted while three-piece, 21-inch wheels, a correspondingly calibrated sports suspension and high-performance brake system do their part to keep the rubber on the road.

Exclusive interior options round out the package, and at just $60,500, it’s practically a steal once you factor in the cost of the car and the price to performance ratio of the upgrade.
