Novitec Alfa Romeo 8C Spider tuned to 600 horsepower


The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione may not be the best handling sports car, but what it lacked in handling, it made up in the appearance with its sexy look. With that, Novitec Rosso only made modifications to the powertrain department.

Novitec Rosso introduces its new performance package to the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider to boost power from the 4.7-liter V8 engine to 600 horsepower and 346 lb-feet of torque, and that is about 150 hp and 88 lb-ft of torque gain over the stock engine. The performance package includes a supercharger, a water-to-air intercooler, new mapped injectors, a stainless-steel exhaust system and an ECU optimization.

The Germany tuning firm claims that the modified Alfa Romeo 8C Spider now can sprint from 0-62 mph in just 3.9 seconds (4.2 seconds in stock engine), while top speed reaches 190 mph.

The exterior remains the same, but with the increase of horsepower, Novitec modified the suspension system to handle it. It includes new coils and adjustable dampers along with Pirelli modular wheels with 21-inches up front and 22-inch in the rear wrapped in 255/30 ZR 21 and 315/25 ZR 22 tires, respectively.

Novitec also provides optional height-adjustable threaded coil-over suspension and leather and Alcantara appointments in the interior for the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider as well.
