Release) New from NOVITEC: The World’s Most Powerful and
Fastest Alfa Romeo: 8C Spider with 600-hp Supercharged Engine
and a Top Speed of 190 mph
The most powerful and fastest street-legal Alfa Romeo of all time
comes from NOVITEC, the world leader in tuning for the automobiles
from Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia. Power output 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 adapted a development by sister
company NOVITEC TRIDENTE, which specializes in tuning the models
carrying the trident emblem, to the 8C. The high-tech supercharger
conversion for the 4.7-liter V8 was modified to fit into the space
under the hood of the Alfa Romeo 8C.
The supercharger is driven by a cogged-tooth belt directly from the
crankshaft and thus breathes more power into the eight-cylinder
four-valve engine even at very low engine speeds. Maximum boost
pressure is limited to 0.37 bar. The mechanical charging system is
rounded out by a water-to-air intercooler with dedicated radiator,
and by custom injectors.
Newly calibrated mapping for injection and ignition ensure a potent
and harmonious power delivery and clean emissions.
Performance figures are accordingly impressive: The compressor
conversion, 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
This elevates driving performance to a level never before attained
by a street-legal Alfa Romeo: the sprint from rest to 62 mph is
shortened to just 3.9 seconds. Top speed increases from standard 180
mph to 190 mph.
The optionally available NOVITEC stainless-steel sport exhaust
system for the Alfa Romeo 8C benefits more than just power yield.
The integrated flap system varies the exhaust note depending on
engine speed from sporty to racing-like. The exhaust system with its
four tailpipes is designed to perfectly fit into the standard
cutouts in the rear apron.
While the body of the 8C Coupe or Spider remains untouched, NOVITEC
adds some thrilling highlights to the appearance of the two-seater
with three-piece NA3 wheels. To further emphasize the wedge-shape
design of the 8C, the specialists chose a staggered combination with
21-inch diameter in front and 22 inches on the rear axle. The alloy
wheels feature five double spokes and are available in any desired
color. In sizes 9x21” and 11.5x22” they fill out the available space
in the wheel wells perfectly. The matching high-performance tires
are supplied by Formula 1 supplier Pirelli in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and
315/25 ZR 22.
The height-adjustable NOVITEC threaded coil-over suspension is
precisely calibrated to these king-sized tires. It allows each
driver of the Alfa Romeo to select ride-height and damper rates to
suit his or her personal taste.
Upon customer request NOVITEC also personalizes the cockpit of the
8C with exclusive appointments made from the finest leather and
Alcantara in any desired color.
