2011 Novitec Alfa Romeo 8C Spider

NOVITEC has released a new performance package for Alfa Romeo 8C Spider. Power production of the Alfa Romeo 8C, Coupe and Spider, jumps to 600 hp thanks to a high-tech supercharger system. Top speed grows to 190 mph. In addition, the tuner offers a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system, a custom-tailored tire/wheel combination with 21- and 22-inch diameters and a height-adjustable sport suspension.

The limited-edition sports car is based on the technology of the Maserati GT. For this reason NOVITEC modified a development by sister company NOVITEC TRIDENTE, which specializes in alteration the models carrying the trident emblem, to the 8C. The high-tech supercharger conversion for the 4.7-liter V8 was customized to fit into the space under the hood of the Alfa Romeo 8C.

The compressor adaptation, which sells for EUR 19,900, boosts power output of the 450-hp stock V8 by 150 hp. The maximum rated power output of 600 hp is available at 7,300 rpm. Peak torque jumps to 434 lb/ft torque at 5,400 rpm. The sprint from rest to 62 mph is abridged to just 3.9 seconds. Top speed increases from standard 180 mph to 190 mph.

While the body of the 8C Coupe or Spider remains unaffected, NOVITEC adds some thrilling highlights to the appearance of the two-seater with three-piece NA3 wheels. To further highlight the wedge-shape design of the 8C, the specialists chose a spread out combination with 21-inch diameter in front and 22 inches on the rear axle. The alloy wheels feature five double spokes and are obtainable in any desired color. In sizes 9×21” and 11.5×22” they fill out the available space in the wheel wells completely. The matching high-performance tires are complete by Formula 1 supplier Pirelli in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 315/25 ZR 22.
