Renowned German tuner Novitec put its hands on one of the 80 Ferrari SA Aperta ever produced and turned it into its own Novitec Rosso Ferrari SA Aperta. The V12 of the standard version (also equipping the 599 GTO) delivers 670 hp, but the extensive work done on the unit by Novitec boosted that figure up to 888 hp (with 862 Nm of peak torque), thanks to a pair of high-performance superchargers, a new intercooler, larger fuel injectors, revised electronics and sports air-filters. This tuning also uses a new stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system, with 90mm tail pipes and butterfly valves that can be controlled by the driver. According to Novitec, their SA Aperta can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 9.1 seconds and from 0 to 300 km/h in 21,9 seconds, reaching top speed at 340 km/h.
In order to handle this kind of performance, aerodynamics have been modified as well with the addition of a lip-spoiler, side skirts and a 599 GTO-derived rear diffuser. 21″ alloys on the front and 22″ on the rear, a ride height lowered by 25 mm and a front-end lifting device complete the profile of this outstanding tuning.
