Sure Ferrari claims that a sedan won’t ever be in the works from them, but their 612 Scaglietti is a 2+2-seater. Debuting in 2003, it has never carried the fame of its counterparts, but Ferrari tuner Novitec Rosso hopes to change that, dressing the 612 to impress with some nice aftermarket goodies.

Because a Ferrari alone isn’t enough to pick up three really skinny girls, you’ll need a nice set of wheels too. Novitec has designed custom versions of its popular three-piece NF3 wheels for the 612 Scaglietti.  It’s a staggered set of 20-inch up front and 21-inch in the rear, wrapped in 275/30/20 Pirelli P Zero rubber up front while at the rear is a nice and beefy 12.5-inch wide wheel with massive 335/25/21 tires. All that rubber is needed to keep you gripping the asphalt thanks to the addition of a few ponies. Novitec has increased the horsepower to 565 from the factory 540, while torque goes to 450 from 434.

The power increase comes courtesy of a reprogrammed ECU and Novitec Rosso’s stainless-steel exhaust system. The exhaust plays triple duty on the 612 Scaglietti: freeing up air and consequently increasing horsepower, giving the car a more menacing look in the rear and transforming the exhaust note to an even throatier, sportier sound.

It’s worth mentioning that a “black lamps” upgrade is available which comes with four round taillights, reflectors and side markers. On the inside, Novitec Rosso will upgrade the interior in a bespoke fashion for the client. Steering wheel customization is available from thickness to color.

Arrivederci 612 Scaglietti!

NOVITEC ROSSO Refines the Ferrari 2+2-Seater

2+2-seaters have a long and illustrious tradition at Ferrari. The 612 Scaglietti seamlessly continued this tremendous success story since its debut in the fall of 2003. To make this extraordinary automobile even more exclusive and to add an even higher level of customization NOVITEC ROSSO now offers new accessories such as a custom-tailored tire/wheel combination with diameters of 20 and 21 inches, a power increase to 565 hp / 416 kW, a stainless-steel sport exhaust system, new taillight design and upgrades for the interior.

Wheels make a car and for a Ferrari the best is just good enough. The NOVITEC ROSSO suspension specialists have developed custom versions of the three-piece NF3 alloy wheels for the Italian sports car.

The new wheels feature a striking design with five double spokes and polished outer flanges. Contrary to the 19-inch production wheels, the 612 Scaglietti in NOVITEC ROSSO trim sports a combination of size 9Jx20 wheels in front and size 12.5Jx21 rims on the rear axle.

This measure benefits not only the driving dynamics of the car but also and foremost the coupe’s appearance. The staggered wheels further emphasize the wedge-shaped design of the two-door car.

In the P Zero tire technology partner Pirelli offers the perfect ultra-high-performance tires for this tire/wheel combination that makes optimal use of the available space in the wheel wells  Tires in size 275/30 ZR 20 on the front axle provide enormous grip during fast cornering and hard braking. Tires in size 355/25 R 21 on the rear axle allow even higher cornering speeds and provide maximum traction.

The exclusive look can be further upgraded with black NOVITEC ROSSO lamps. The complete package comprises the four round taillights, the reflectors and the side markers.

Further cornerstones of the NOVITEC ROSSO program for the 612 Scaglietti are a power increase and an even sportier exhaust note. The inner workings of the V12 engine with a displacement of 5,748 cm³ remain untouched. The power increase to 565 hp / 416 kW at 7,290 rpm is the product of a newly calibrated engine management system and the NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system.

The tuning gives the V12 engine an even crisper response and lets it rev up even faster. Simultaneously peak torque grows to 609 Nm at 5,300 rpm. A top speed of more than 325 km/h and a sprint time for 0 – 100 km/h of just 3.9 seconds make the 2+2-seater an even more dominant sports car.

The NOVITEC ROSSO sport exhaust system is an integral part of the power increase and produces a truly delightful exhaust note. The NOVITEC ROSSO exhaust is easily distinguished by its four 90-mm tailpipes cut at an angle.

NOVITEC ROSSO upgrades the four-seat interior according to customers’ personal preferences. The ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel comes in any color imaginable. But that’s not all: Customers can also freely choose the steering wheel’s material as well as the thickness of the rim. The rim is flattened at the bottom for easier entering and exiting of the vehicle.

Every NOVITEC ROSSO interior is characterized by its masterful precision finish and its striking colors. But NOVITEC ROSSO realizes not only Ferrari owners’ personal material and color selections, it also custom-tailors the seat to each customer’s body measurements. Special requests such as for seats with even more lateral support or a lowered seat position for especially tall drivers round out the interior customization program.
