A rated power output of 888 hp / 653 kW, a peak torque of 862 Nm and a topspeed in excess of 340 km/h thanks to twin-compressor technology: NOVITECROSSO, the world leader in tuning for the sports cars from Maranello, presentsan even more powerful and sportier version of the Ferrari 599 GTO in a world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011. To further improve the power-to-weightratio and for even more dynamic handling the two-seater car is equipped with thenew, extremely light NOVITEC ROSSO forged wheels.

The NOVITEC ROSSO engine specialists have developed an even more powerful version ofthe proven twin-compressor six-liter four-valve V12 engine for the sport version of the Ferrari599. Both high-performance superchargers, driven by a cogged V-belt and by adedicated oil circuit, were optimized further. Maximum boost pressure is limited to 0.45 bar.

The large water-to-air intercooler features a dedicated water circuit and is essential formaximum power yield and healthy engine temperatures. The intake side of the engine is furthermodified with an intake manifold custom-developed for the twelve-cylinder engine that featureshigh-performance air filters and high-performance injectors.

The NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system unimpededexhaust-gas flow. The exhaust features four black-coated tailpipes with diameters of 90millimeters. This exhaust system also provides drivers the opportunity to select differentexhaust notes. The Manettino button on the steering wheel adjusts the exhaust note from subtleto the extremely sporty sound of a true racing car.

The NOVITEC ROSSO engine management coordinates the perfect interaction of allcomponents of the twin-compressor conversion for the GTO and ensures exceptional poweryield, smooth running and maximum endurance.

After the engine conversion the 599 GTO is among the most powerful super sports cars in theworld. Maximum power output jumps from standard 670 hp / 493 kW to 888 hp / 653 kW at8,400 rpm, giving the supercharged sports car a power-to-weight ratio of 1.74 kg / hp. Thetuned V12 also produces a superlative peak torque, which increases by 242 Nm to 862 Nm at6,600 rpm.

The combination of powerful engine, extremely fast shifting six-speed F1 transmission and thelow weight of the 599 GTO results in exceptional driving performance. The coupe sprints fromrest to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in just 9.1 seconds. This establishes theNOVITEC ROSSO Bi-Kompressor firmly among the world’s fastest accelerating sports cars.

Top speed is more than 340 km/h.The silver special paint with yellow cross stripe and white patches for the starting number isreminiscence to the Ferrari 250 GTO racing car with chassis-no. 4153. In it the Belgians LucienBianchi and Georges Berger won the Tour de France in 1964. The lightweight-constructionbody itself remains unchanged with the exception of black taillights, third brake light, rear foglamp and side markers.

The NOVITEC ROSSO suspension specialists have developed custom-tailored forged wheelsspecifically for the Ferrari 599 GTO. In their large size these new wheels are among the lightestof their kind anywhere in the world. They are anodized a titanium shade and feature fivedelicate double spokes. The resulting reduction in unsprung weight is crucial for agile handling.

The NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 10Jx21 rim for the front axle weighs just 10.4 kilograms; the size12Jx22 rear wheel weighs only 13.8 kilograms. In addition to their low weight these wheels alsowiden the track and together with the wider Pirelli PZero tires in sizes 295/25 ZR 21 and 335/25ZR 22 they allow even faster cornering speeds than the production tires.

NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs lower the center of gravity, which also contributes to this effect.An especially useful feature in everyday driving is the front-axle lift function the Germanspecialists have devised for the GTO. At the push of a button in the cockpit the front can beraised by 40 millimeters. This eliminates the threat posed by speed bumps or undergroundparking ramps. Upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the suspension automatically reverts to itsoriginal position.
