German tuner Novitec definitely had a tough task on its hands when asked to improve the performance and styling of one of the best looking saloons on the market. However, it did have a few major accomplishments under its belt to back it up. These are, after all, the same guys that had the guts to modify a Ferrari Enzo and it appears that they haven’t changed the gorgeous lines of the Quattroporte.

The same can’t be said as to what’s under the hood. Engineers have optimized the car’s ECU, lifting the engine’s cutoff to 7,800rpm and increasing output to 413hp (304kW) at 7,100rpm. A new stainless steel exhaust system with two 83mm tailpipes on either side ensure power is increase right across the rev range, and also sees that torque jump to 468Nm at 4,650rpm.

The rolling stock has also come in for an upgrade, including an adjustable coil over suspension with stainless steel shock absorbers and aluminum spacers for the 20in light-alloy wheels. These are shod with 285mm Pirelli P-Zero rubber at the rear and smaller 245mm tires up front.
