Vehicle Description

Novitec Rosso is a well-known German tuning company that many of us may remember from our childhood or teenage years. They weren't as outlandish as Gemballa or Koenig, but they produced some fantastic products and continue to put out quality upgrades to this day. Likely the most memorable Novitec kit is from the Ferrari 360, and even if you haven't seen one with the full aero treatment, you've likely seen their gorgeous split 5-spoke wheels on a number of 360s or F430s.

This particular 360 left the factory in 1999 as a US-spec gated-manual coupe, and was delivered to its first owner in NJ, who kept it for just a year before reselling it with only 254 miles (likely for an immense profit, as they were selling for massive premiums over MSRP at the time). The second owner completed the Novitec upgrades circa 2004 and kept it until selling it to Switchcars in early 2021. We shipped it straight to Fast Cars, LTD, a highly-respected independent Ferrari service center in California, to have it fully serviced and comprehensively inspected, including a complete major service, compression test, and a through decontamination from long-term storage. We then installed new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and proceeded to drive the car for a few hundred miles to not only enjoy the wonders of the Novitec upgrades, but also to make sure it was fully sorted post-service. The car performs amazingly well, and one would have no idea that the upgrades weren't factory. The superchargers add much-needed torque that is lacking in the stock configuration, and the entire tuning package works together seamlessly.

The car has a clean Carfax, no indication of damage or paintwork, although we just had the front bumper refinished to remedy the front license plate holes.The condition outside and inside is excellent, with no dash shrinkage, no sticky buttons, and no appreciable wear - it looks like a 6000-mile car. 

This particular car has a Novitec data plate indicating it is #009, although it is only engine #006, so it is likely one of only a small handful with the entire kit, and it may be the only one in a manual. We have searched the internet high and low and cannot find another one, or history of any other one, that is a manual coupe with the twin superchargers. We've found one spider, the F1 press/demo car, and a handful of cars with just the wheels or body kit.

This gated 360 appears to have the complete upgrade kit from Novitec with no box left un-checked, including the following:

Twin-Supercharger kit with Intercoolers and Carbon Fiber air-boxes
Full Novitec Aero kit including Carbon Fiber rear grill and body-color rear diffuser
Rearview Mirror in body color
Novitec Exhaust
Novitec 5-lug wheels
Brembo big-brake kit
Novitec suspension package with KW Race adjustable coilovers
OMP Challenge-style reclining Ferrari-branded cloth seats with OMP harnesses
Full Alcantara interior package
Silver Carbon Fiber trim package

Here's an exerpt of a good write-up on the Novitec 360 from Motor Trend:

Novitec's recently released Modena F360 aims to up the performance ante. The core of its F360 effort entails adding more power: Twin superchargers work with twin carbon-fiber water-cooled intercoolers, additional fuel injectors, and an artful handmade carbon-fiber air-inlet setup employing high-flow filters. Custom exhaust manifolds vent to a free-flowing Novitec sport exhaust system fit with 90mm tips. Novitec claims the engine mods boost horsepower from 400 to 565--for the small sum of $59,298.

The added power measurably reduced acceleration times, but the F1 gearbox proved tricky to launch. As with every Modena F1 we've tested, you can't choose a specific launch rpm nor have the ability to feather the clutch; the result is a fine line between engine bog or wild tire spin. The Novitec's rear tires can generate enough smoke to amaze pyrotechnics experts. It looks cool, but it's not the way to quick times. Thus, a bog-and-go launch was used, which delivered a three-tenths-quicker quarter mile. We feel that with a true six-speed manual we could have generated a high 11-second [elapsed time].

If the Modena's stock Brembo-sourced brakes aren't good enough for you, then consider a set of Novitec's 380mm rotors clamped by eight-piston calipers. This $12,499 combination proves rock-solid and easy to modulate....Novitec suggests its lightweight 19x9.0/19x12.5-inch Rosso II center-locking wheels with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires ($9300). Also in the name of more grip, Novitec offers its three-way-adjustable coil-over suspension ($7699) and custom anti-roll bars ($1999). In our slalom test, the rolling stock and suspension hardware teamed to deliver a more predictable Modena with an impressive 1.5-mph increase in average speed. On the street, the suspension proves friendly on all but the roughest of surfaces.

Why not designer threads, too? Body/aero mods include front bumper, side panels, rear diffuser, rear wing, carbon rear grille, and taillights ($17,394). Inside upgrades are carbon-fiber and include a center console, radio cover, instrument panel, door panels, and door-sill plates ($6144). Enjoying all these prancing horses requires an intercooled checkbook, as the F360's tally of upgrades rings in at over $100 grand.
