German tuner Novitec Rosso has released details about a new modified Ferrari 599 GTB that builds upon its previous version by adding a new forced-induction system. The new package consists of a subtle styling kit for increased downforace, as well as some mild handling upgrades, and a twin-turbocharging kit.

A maximum rated output of 808hp (594kW) and 607lb-ft (823Nm) of torque are the result of the new twin compressor conversion, and with the accelerator pedal pressed to the floor the car will now reach a top speed of 340km/h. This is 188hp (138kW) and 159lb-ft (215Nm) of torque more than the stock 599.

In combination with the F1-Superfast transmission, the tuned 599 will sprint from rest to 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, pass 200km/h after 9.7 seconds and reach 300km/h after 25.5 seconds.

A belt-driven twin-supercharging system is bolted to the engine, producing a relatively mild peak boost pressure of 5.65psi. The compressed air is then cooled down to a level conducive for added power by a large intercooler cooled by a dedicated water cycle. A specially designed intake manifold with high-performance injectors and a sports air filter round out the conversion on the intake side.

Other powertrain mods include custom exhaust manifolds, a 90mm diameter stainless-steel quad exhaust system, and a retuned ECU.

The aero kit consists of a new front lip, side skirts with larger air intake openings, side flaps, a new rear wing and bumper with an integrated diffuser. The car also gets new 20in wheels at the front with larger 21in alloys at the rear and 355mm Pirelli P Zeros. Other changes to the 599 include a KW Automotive adjustable aluminum suspension kit, as well as new 405mm brake discs with Brembo six piston calipers.

  1. Ok, wouldn't modifying it only ruin the value of it?
    knowing Ferrari puts in thousands of hours developing a perfectly balaced engine that already pushes the limits of the car.
