It’s a sign of the times that the Ferrari 488 produces more power than the Ferrari Enzo – a V12 flagship that bears the name of the company founder himself. Frankly, 661 horsepower is a stunning amount for Ferrari’s cheapest mid-engine car, but you can now have more if you please.
German tuning outfit Novitech Rosso has just introduced its program for the twin-488. It’s hard to miss the cosmetic changes, but we’ll focus on the performance upgrades for now.
Novitech Rosso’s Stage 1 ECU tuning package bumps the 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8’s output to 745 horsepower, while their Stage 2 kit brings that number to 761. If you’re feeling a bit crazy, they offer a Stage 3 pack that lifts total output to 761 horsepower. In Stage 1 spec, the tuning company says their 488 will sprint from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and top out at 212 mph (342 km/h).
The cosmetic upgrades include a carbon fiber rear wing, side skirts, intake inserts, rear apron and front lip spoiler, along with 21-inch wheels and a range of tire options. Rounding out the changes is stiffened suspension, which comes via unspecified upgrades, and various carbon fiber inserts for the interior.
