Straight out of the box the
is a very capable performance machine, no doubt thanks to its 6.3-liter V-12 engine, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and sophisticated all-wheel drive system
Tuning firms all over the world are now faced with the challenge of improving the car beyond what Ferrari engineers had originally envisioned.
One firm that should have no issue with modifying the FF is Germany’s Novitec Rosso
An expert in the modification of Ferraris (who could ever forget the sinister Tu Nero
), Novitec Rosso has just announced a series of upgrades for the FF that sees the car encroach on the performance territory of the more recent F12 Berlinetta
Thanks to a recalibrated ECU and high-flow exhaust system, Novitec Rosso’s custom Ferrari FF develops a new peak output of 702 horsepower. This should see the car’s acceleration time drop by a few tenths of a second and top speed approach 211 mph.
To go with the extra power, the tuning firm has also added a set of forged wheels measuring 21 inches up front and 22 inches at the rear. These are shod with Pirelli P Zero tires measuring 255/30 ZR21 up front and a massive 315/25 ZR22 at the rear. The spring rates have also been increased and to really set off the car a series of carbon fiber accents have been added all around.
Inside, the carbon fiber theme continues, with the lightweight stuff used on the transmission shifter paddles, door sills and trim pieces for the dash. Other surfaces are covered in leather and Alcantara.
