Novitec Tridente takes to the Maserati GranTurismo S

Many car enthusiasts think exotic cars should be just left alone and require no further modification. But Novitec doesn’t share this thinking at all. The German tuning house, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, is one of the established names in tuning Italian exotics. The company’s Novitec Rosso line is known for getting mad horsepower out of Ferraris by strapping on superchargers, but a couple of years ago they turned out a sensible modification package for the Maserati Quattroporte. Now the Novitec Tridente line is back at work on the GranTurismo S, producing the supercharged super-coupe shown here.

By adding a supercharger, tinkering with the ECU and replacing the exhaust system, Novitec has managed to extract an extra 165 horsepower from the Ferrari-sourced 4.7-litre V8 for a massive 600hp. Managing all that extra power is a retuned suspension set up sitting on massive 20 and 21 inch wheels front and back. A carbon fibre body kit rounds off the look of one mean-looking GT.
