Some people believe in tuning exotics, some prefer to leave them alone; but everyone has to respect what Novitec has accomplished with their perfectly balanced 600hp Maserati GranTurismo S.
The German tuning house, now celebrating its 23rd anniversary, is one of the established names in tuning Italian exotica. The company’s Novitec Rosso line is known for strapping superchargers to Ferraris to delirious effect, but a couple of years ago they turned out a decidedly low-key modification to the Maserati Quattroporte. Now the Novitec Tridente line is back at work on the GranTurismo S, producing the supercharged super-coupe you see here.
By adding a supercharger, tinkering with the ECU and replacing the exhaust system, Novitec has managed to coax out an extra 165 horsepower from the Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V8 for a whopping 600 ponies. Managing all that extra power is a retuned KW suspension gripping massing 20 and 21 inch wheels front and back, which team up with the carbon fiber body kit to add even more aggression to one of the industry’s meanest-looking GTs.
