More info and photos on Switchcars.com - Novitec Rosso is a well-known German tuning company that many of us may remember from our childhood or teenage years. They weren't as outlandish as Gemballa or Koenig, but they produced some fantastic products and continue to put out quality upgrades to this day. Likely the most memorable Novitec kit is from the Ferrari 360, and even if you haven't seen one with the full aero treatment, you've likely seen their gorgeous split 5-spoke wheels on a number of 360s or F430s.
This particular 360 left the factory in 1999 as a US-spec gated-manual coupe, and was delivered to its first owner in NJ, who kept it for just a year before reselling it with only 254 miles (likely for an immense profit, as they were selling for massive premiums over MSRP at the time). The second owner completed the Novitec upgrades circa 2004 and kept it until selling it to Switchcars in early 2021. We shipped it straight to Fast Cars, LTD, a highly-respected independent Ferrari service center in California, to have it fully serviced and comprehensively inspected, including a complete major service, compression test, and a through decontamination from long-term storage. We then installed new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and proceeded to drive the car for a few hundred miles to not only enjoy the wonders of the Novitec upgrades, but also to make sure it was fully sorted post-service. The car performs amazingly well, and one would have no idea that the upgrades weren't factory. The superchargers add much-needed torque that is lacking in the stock configuration, and the entire tuning package works together seamlessly.
The car has a clean Carfax, no indication of damage or paintwork, although we just had the front bumper refinished to remedy the front license plate holes. The condition outside and inside is excellent, with no dash shrinkage, no sticky buttons, and no appreciable wear - it looks like a 6000-mile car.
This particular car has a Novitec data plate indicating it is #009, although it is only engine #006, so it is likely one of only a small handful with the entire kit, and it may be the only one in a manual. We have searched the internet high and low and cannot find another one, or history of any other one, that is a manual coupe with the twin superchargers. We've found one spider, the F1 press/demo car, and a handful of cars with just the wheels or body kit.
This gated 360 appears to have the complete upgrade kit from Novitec with no box left un-checked, including the following:
Twin-Supercharger kit with Intercoolers and Carbon Fiber air-boxes
Full Novitec Aero kit including Carbon Fiber rear grill and body-color rear diffuser
Rearview Mirror in body color
Novitec 5-lug wheels
Brembo big-brake kit
Novitec suspension package with KW Race adjustable coilovers
OMP Challenge-style reclining Ferrari-branded cloth seats with OMP harnesses
Full Alcantara interior package
Silver Carbon Fiber trim package
