Novitec Tridente Reveals Tuning Program for Maserati GranTurismo S

Supercharger boosts power to 600bhp

Tuned Maseratis aren't a common sight, and it might come as even more of a surprise to know that there's a company dedicated to upgrading vehicles bearing the trident badge. Stetten, Germany-based Novitec is an Italian-car modifier with arms specializing in Ferrari, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and of course Maserati. The firm's "Novitec Tridente" group made its debut with a modified Quattroporte in 2007, and for 2009 it has revealed a sexier, supercharged GranTurismo S.

The supercharger plus upgrades to the ECU and exhaust system of the 4.7 liter V8 bring the power to 600bhp. A 160-horse increase over stock is foolhardy without comparable upgrades to the running gear, of course, so Novitec Tridente adds a KW/Novitec suspension and staggered NM3 five-spoke wheels measuring 20x9 up front and 21x12.5 at the rear.

The GranTurismo's appearance is tweaked with a body kit that includes a front spoiler, rear wing, skirt and rocker panel extensions. The aero kit is available in body color or visible carbon-fiber.

Nah, it is more Subaru Impreza-ish, with a thin red tint outline.

Very nicely done. I'm glad they didn't do anything stupid to the exterior. Just the slightest adjustments on the bumpers, perfect. But I don't like those rims on this car too much. I prefer the stock ones.

this is PERFECT. this is the kinda power this car needed.. not a measly 400hp to handle that fat weight of this... even 550 would be perfect for this ride :D

600hp is just what this car needed. This wheels are awesome, way better than stock. BUT, I don't think they fit this particular car perfecly. It needs something bolder, more refined with more character.

At last they tuned up the engine, the only thing this car needs is more power.

Typically I object to tuners doing up what many would consider an already very appealing car, but this is a very tasteful evolution of the standard GranTurismo. I wouldn't opt for the naked carbon fiber, personally, but I concur -- those rims suit it ideally. Good job, Novitec!

Wow, those rims look sexy on this car. Now why can't Maserati make these a factory option?
