If you own a Ferrari 599 SA Aperta, you may be disappointed to realize that 79 other people in the world have the same car as you. To help SA Aperta owners stand out from the crowd, Novitec Rosso has launched a tuning kit for the limited-run Ferrari roadster.
The conversion begins by bolting two superchargers to the Ferrari’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine. Novitec Rosso also adds a new intake manifold, larger fuel injectors, new exhaust manifolds, and a reprogrammed engine computer. The result is 888 hp at 8400 rpm and 636 lb-ft of torque at 6600 rpm, which Novitec Rosso says is enough to launch the SA Aperta to 124 mph in just 9.1 seconds, and toward a top speed of 211 mph.
As to style, the tuning group added special lightweight wheels. The fronts measure 21 inches and weigh just 23 pounds, while the rear 22-inch wheels weigh 30 pounds -- which is comparatively light for such large-diameter rolling stock. The SA Aperta also benefits from Novitec Rosso springs that lower its ride height by 1.6 inches.Finally, the car gets new a carbon-fiber splitter, rear fascia, and side skirts, as along with black-tinted tail- and foglights.
Given that all 80 copies of the 599 SA Aperta have already been sold, we doubt there is an enormous market for this latest Novitec Rosso twist. Buyers who do opt for the upgrade, however, will have one seriously unique car.
