Owner review: Ferrari 458 Italia Tuned by Novitec Rosso

Recommended Posts

Posting on Behalf of a friend. I just thought I'd share this with all the car enthusiasts on this board.

I am currently on summer vacation visiting my family in Taiwan. Apparently my dad decided not to tell me anything about purchasing a new Ferrari. All I knew was he bought a Bentley Continental GT Speed a few months ago and I haven't seen it yet since I haven't seen him in about 8 months. He parks his Bentley at an apartment complex he owns because there is no room at home, so he took me to go check it out. When we arrive, he tells me to take a look at it and he leaves for no reason saying that he'll be right back. A few minutes later I hear a glorious noise of an exhaust starting up. I was thinking at first, "someone else has a nice car here" or "sounds like a Lambo". Next thing I know, I see a white 458 Italia pull up in front of me. My jaw dropped to the ground and I was speechless. I never thought I'd get the opportunity to ever sit in one. Suddenly I couldn't care less about the Bentley.

So he took me for a couple of rides and explained to me that he had it only for a month and wanted to surprise me. He also went on to talk about how its a special Novitec edition.

The Novitec tuned 458 has more Carbon Fiber parts, Better aero body kits, Carbon fiber roof and spoiler, lowered and sportier suspension, stronger brembo brake calipers by Novitec, better carbon ceramic brakes, rims, exhaust, and more power. 609 horsepower instead of 562 for stock.

Get yourself membership to the nearest race track , this machine looks stupid on city roads/highway , it is meant to be driven hard every weekend if not everyday. Congrats!!!!

Is this a Ferrari edition or dealer-aftermarket edition (trust me there are many dealerships who make aftermarket accessory optional for supercars). How does this compare to the Speciale Edition in performance specs?

A very close friend of mine has a 458 Italia here in Mumbai too which I drive often. His is Bianco Fuji (Pearl white) with Nero roof. He also has Novitec carbon fibre addons but has kept the performance stock. The carbon fibre looks awesome on the car.
