As previously mentioned, Novitec Rosso has brought to Geneva this year their tuning program for the Ferrari 599 GTO, the most exclusive and powerful model from the Italian automaker.

What they’ve did is they took the car’s massive V12 power unit and installed two superchargers, raising the output of the engine form 670 to a whopping 888 hp. Torque figures are also up, from 457 lb.-ft (620 Nm) @ 6,500 rpm to 636 lb.-ft (860 Nm) @ 6,600 rpm.

Although it received a lot of additional horsepower, the 599 GTO is only a little bit faster in comparison to the standard model, as it will do the 0-60 mph sprint 0.15 quicker at 3.2 seconds, while the top speed is a little bit higher at 211 mph (340 km/h). The car can accelerate from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in only 9.1 seconds.

They’ve installed sports springs (not like the production version doesn’t have those), very light forged rims that according to Novitec Rosso are among the lightest in the world. Measuring 21-inches, the front wheels weigh 22.9 lbs (10 kg) each, while the ones in the back are 22-inches and weigh 30.4 lbs (13.8 kg).

If you want to buy a Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599 GTO but you are afraid to drive it in the city, you’ll be happy to know that the car features a front-axle lift function which will raise the front by 40 mm so that you will be able to avoid those annoying speed-bumps.

The car exhibited at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show is wearing an exclusive silver paint that has a yellow cross stripe on the hood and white patches on the doors. This paintwork is a tribute to the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO that back in 1964 won the Tour de France. It also sports yellow brake calipers, blacked out taillights, a rear fog lamp, and third brake light and side markers.
