Specialist Ferrari tuner Novitec Rosso, who is based in Germany, has developed a thrilling hot version of the Ferrari F430.

The twin-supercharged 4.3-litre V8 unit's power has been boosted to 486kW.

This was achieved thanks to some changes to the engine management system and the superchargers.

According to Novitect Roso acceleration from 0 to 100km/h is less than 3.7 seconds, and top speed is 347km/h.

There is also a stainless-steel exhaust system and a set of custom alloy wheels.

Furthermore the Novitec aero kit consists of a front apron, rear diffuser and rear wing.

The interior upgrade includes leather and Alcantara trim as well as an aluminum pedal set.
