Several years ago Ferrari tuner Novitec released it’s first line of parts for the Maserati brand under the name Novitec Tridente. The minor modifications made available for the Quattroporte model didn’t, however, generate much excitement. The opposite will no doubt be true of the new Novitec Tridente line for the Maserati GranTurismo S…. due mostly to the car’s 600hp output.

With a supercharger, exhaust system and ECU tune the Italian tuning experts at the German Novitec facility have managed to increase output of the 4.7-liter V8 by 160hp. Other upgrades include a set of staggered wheels with an original set of 20×9-inch Novitec NM3 wheels up front and 12×12.5-inch wheels in the rear.

Other highlights include the Novitec//KW suspension system as well as a full aero kit, designed to keep the exotic Maserati planted on the autobahn at high speeds. The kit includes a front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts and a subtle trunklid spoiler – all made from carbon fiber.

Novitec hasn’t officially released full details on the car so we’ll keep you updated on what else this package entails and just how fast it can go.
