23 HP and 13 Nm more

Novitec Rosso has prepared its first performance package for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

They were able to increase the output of the engine to 763 HP (561.5 kW) at 8,500 rpm, up from the standard 740 HP (545 kW). The torque figure has also gone up from 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) to 518 lb-ft (703 Nm) at 6,300 rpm. As a result, the F12 Berlinetta is now able to reach a top speed of more than 345 km/h (213 mph) compared to the standard 340 km/h (211 mph).

The power hike comes from a better management of the V12 6.2-liter engine which revs up to 8,500 rpm. Novitec Rosso also offers 21-inch front wheels with Pirelli high-performance tires measuring 255/30 ZR 21, while at the back it rides on 22-inch alloys with 335/25 ZR 22 rubbers.

The sport springs lower the F12's ride height by up to 40mm, while the front axle can be fitted with a lifting system that raises the front's car by up to 40mm. The driver will be able to change the exhaust system's note to a sportier tune by using the steering wheel-mounted Manettino switch which will open or close the butterfly valves in the exhaust.

More engine upgrades and an aero kit are under development.

Additional details are provided in the attached press release.

The Ferrari F12berlinetta has arrived! The first vehicles have just been delivered to their proud owners and already NOVITEC ROSSO, the world's leading tuner for the powerhouses from Maranello, ignites the first tuning stage: The V12 Coupe receives a power upgrade to 561.5 kW / 763 hp, giving it a new top speed of more than 345 km/h. The car's appearance and handling are further improved with NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs and high-tech forged wheels with diameters of up to 22 inches. Exclusive interior appointments round out the product line-up for the two-seater.

Performance optimization and an even sportier exhaust note at the push of a button. The first performance package for the 6.3-liter V12 of the F12berlinetta leaves the inner workings of the engine untouched. Newly calibrated mapping for injection and ignition boost peak power output from standard 545 kW / 740 hp to 561.5 kW / 763 hp at 8,500 rpm. Peak torque grows to 703 Nm at 6,300 rpm.

The NOVITEC ROSSO engine management systems does more than just optimize peak power output, pulling power and throttle response. Raising the redline speed to 8,900 rpm makes the spacing of the gears of the 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission working even better. This also benefits performance as evidenced by a new top speed in excess of 345 km/h.

The NOVITEC ROSSO performance kit also provides an acoustic highlight: After the conversion the driver of the F12berlinetta can change the exhaust note of the standard exhaust system from subtle to extremely sporty by turning the Manettino switch on the steering wheel to open or close the butterfly valves in the exhaust.

Additional performance stages NOVITEC ROSSO performance stages for the 12-cylinder engine and an aerodynamic-enhancement package are currently under development.

Wheels makes cars: This axiom naturally also holds true for the Ferrari F12berlinetta. As an upgrade to the 20-inch production wheels the NOVITEC ROSSO suspension engineers have developed two custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations. By choosing a staggered combination of 21-inch wheels in the front and 22-inch wheels in back the engineers not only emphasized the wedge-like shape of the new top-of-the-line Ferrari, they also refined its handling.

A particular bright spot offered by NOVITEC ROSSO is the high-tech forged wheel for the sports car. Despite its king-size dimension the NF4 wheel with five delicate double spokes is one of the lightest of its kind in the world. The resulting reduction in unsprung weight plays a significant role in the car's even more agile handling.

The NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 9.5Jx21 wheels for the front axle are mounted with Pirelli high-performance tires in size 255/30 ZR 21. For maximum traction the rear axle is fitted with size 12Jx22 wheels, shod with size 335/25 ZR 22 tires.

Also available for the F12berlinetta are three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 alloy wheels in sizes 9.5Jx21 in the front and 12Jx22 on the rear axle, mounted with the same tire sizes as the forged wheels. These wheels also have a striking design with five double spokes and polished outer flange. As for all other wheels, NOVITEC ROSSO offers individual color schemes, including outer flanges with carbon-fiber coating.

The exclusive appearance can for the time be upgraded further with black NOVITEC ROSSO side markers that will be complemented with black tail lights in the near future.

NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs lower the ride height of the Ferrari by up to 40 millimeters, lending the car an arresting appearance and further enhanced handling as the result of a lowered center of gravity.

For added utility the German specialists equip the F12berlinetta with a lifting system for the front axle. At the push of a button in the cockpit the front of the car can be raised by 40 millimeters to facilitate navigating obstacles such as underground garage entrance ramps or speed humps. Upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the suspension automatically reverts to its original position.

NOVITEC ROSSO also offers total individuality in the interior. The product program offers countless options from carbon-fiber shift paddles to exclusive Alcantara and leather interiors in any desired color or upholstery design, each masterfully and meticulously crafted down to the last detail.

The performance change is marginal at best. Not worth loosing your Ferrari's warranty.

Yeah, I just noticed that. I prefer the ones in the main article image. This car looks amazing with the lowered ride height. Paint it in Rosso Corsa and sign me up.
