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 / 441 kW thanks to a high-tech supercharger system. Top speed grows to 305 km/h. 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 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 19,900 eur, boosts power output of the 450 hp / 331 kW stock V8 by 150 hp / 110 kw. The maximum rated power output of 600 hp / 441 kW is available at 7,300 rpm. peak torque jumps to 588 Nm at 5,400 rpm This elevates driving performance to a level never before attained by a street-legal Alfa Romeo: the sprint from resto to 100 km/h is shortenend to just 3,9 seconds. Top speed increases from standard 290 km/h to 305 km/h. The optionally availale NOVITEC stainless-steel sport exhaust system for the Alfa Romeo 8C benefits more then 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 designd to perfectly fit into the standard cutouts in the rear apron.
