Novitec is proud to announce that they’ve built the world’s fastest and most powerful Alfa Romeo, taking an 8C Spider and equipping it with 600-hp and a top speed of 190-mph.

Novitec, one of the world’s premier tuners of Italian vehicles, adapted the supercharger from the Novitec Tridente Maserati GT, and outfitted it on the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider. In addition, Novitec equips the 8C with a stainless-steel exhaust, height-adjustable suspension and a 21- and 22-inch staggered wheel/tire combination.

To ensure the powerplant is safely boosted with the addition of the supercharger, Novitec also includes a water-to-air intercooler with dedicated radiator and larger fuel injectors with the kit. To put it all together, the ECU is reflashed with a new tune. As a result, power leaps from the factory 450-hp to 600-hp with peak torque at 434 lb-ft. The optional exhaust system is a quad-tipped piece that fits with the factory cutouts in the rear apron.

Instead of equipping the 8C with an aero kit, Novitec decided to simply outfit it with a classy set of three-piece NA3 wheels. Up front are 21×9-inch rollers while the rear gets a 22×11.5-inch set that fill out the wheel wells quite nicely.

Changing the stance is also a breeze from Novitec with a coilover suspension package that allows the driver to adjust both the damper and height of the vehicle. Lastly, customers can specify interior upgrades from leather to Alcantara in any color.
