Most people turn their head when they see a single Ferrari F430 on the road, this week at our shop many thought they were seeing doubles. We had the pleasure of having these 2 Ferrari F430 Spiders in the shop the past few weeks. The cars owner originally purchased a 6speed car and equipped it with Novitec Rosso’s brilliant supercharger kit. After having a change of heart he decided he wanted a car with Ferrari’s F1 trans, so rather than trying to deal with the headache of a transmission swap, he decided a car swap would be much better suited, and bought a newer model 430 with the trans he wanted. Once the car arrived it was torn into and received Novitec’s supercharger kit, giving this stallion a bit more gallop. Our heart still remains with the Supra, but I must admit adding forced induction to exotics and creating super cars is also getting a bit addicting. We’re a Novitec dealer and the Southeast install center for all your Ferrari Maserati needs.
Many dream of one day owning a Ferrari and indulging in the brilliant driving experience it delivers. Others, who can afford such an automotive masterpiece, are simply looking to upstage the next guy. So, what do these few fortunate souls do when the Ferrari 599 GTB in the garage just isn’t exciting enough anymore? You enlist the help of a specialist tuner to take what many perceive as automotive perfection and make it better. This particular customer took his 599 to the extreme with a Novitec twin supercharger kit, KW Suspension with Hydraulic lift, Novitec signature 21” wheels, and a clear bra to protect its beautiful Ferrari red paint. The end result is a supercar that delivers performance beyond ones wildest dreams, while still retaining a sophisticated ride any gentleman can appreciate.
Titan Motorsports is an authorized Novitec distributor and also one of the US install centers for Novitec performance upgrades. Let Titan and Novitec help take your Ferrari to the next level.
Living and operating in a major metropolitan area, seeing Ferraris and other exotics becomes a somewhat common occurrence. This particular owner wanted to make his Spyder stand out from the pack and what better way than by adding a twin supercharger kit from Novitec. The Novitec Rosso kit adds twin Rotrex Superchargers to the factory 4.3L V8, combined with Novitec engineered hardware and software upgrades the horsepower is increased to 636HP. The kit adds just as much aesthetic appeal as performance with carbon piping dress panels letting curious onlookers viewing through the F430s glass trunk lid know this isn’t your standard Ferrari. The complete kit takes less than 3 days to install and can be combined with additional suspension, brake and exterior modifications, and even a race kit for those looking to take their Ferrari to an even further level.
What better way to bring in the New Year then to add not one but two superchargers to your ride. That is exactly what we have planned for this stunning Ferrari F430 you see pictured here.
Novitec is once again flying in their Ferrari specialists to Titan Headquarters to complete the supercharger install. We have had great success working with the people of Novitec. Their workmanship is top notch, and their component quality is second to none. We are proud to be able to facilitate another Ferrari build here at Titan Motorsports. Stay tuned, the build starts Monday.

This past week was Le Belle Macchine D ‘Italia, an annual event that takes place at the famed Daytona International Speedway. Every year hundreds of exotic and Italian cars from all over the east coast travel to Daytona to stretch their cars legs on the speedways’ 3.56 mile sports car course. The event lasts 3 days and includes both a Ferrari Challenge club race, as well as a driver’s education for those drivers wanting to test their personal vehicles on the track with an instructor present to keep things safe. The event also has gathered the support of manufactures and dealerships that bring out their latest performance vehicles for customers to see in the flesh, as well as experience on the track.
Lamborghini brought out their latest wares in the LP670-4 SV and LP550-2 with famed test driver Valentino Balboni providing test rides for lucky potential customers. It was truly a sight to see Valentino using every bit of the LP670-4s capabilities as he drove the car to 10/10ths using every bit of the course on a white knuckle ride for passengers.
Bentley also brought out its latest Continental GT Super Sport, a high performance version of the CGT that is ready for the track with large ceramic brakes, a deleted rear seat, and of course more horsepower. This great car not only performs like no other Bentley produced, but looks the part as well with aggressive color combinations, carbon interior package, black wheels, and updated styling to let curious onlookers know this isn’t your everyday country club Bentley.
I would also like to take a moment to personally thank Jon Miller and Eric who allowed me to experience Daytona in the passenger seat of their Ferrari 360 Challenge car, it was truly a ride I’ll never forget. It was a pleasure to see so many great cars on track being driven how they were meant to be driven, instead of collecting dust in a collector’s warehouse. It’s not every weekend you see Ferrari race cars, F40s, Bugatti Veyrons and Lamborghinis all sharing one of the most famous race tracks in America. If you get the opportunity to attend the event next year I would highly recommend it, it’ll definitely get a mark on my calendar.
In just under a week here at Titan Motorsports, this Ferrari F430 was transformed from its sporty stock form to a Novitec Twin Supercharged monster. The Novitec engineer from German was a pleasure to have as a guest in our shop and knew the Ferrari like the back of his hand making quick work of the host of upgrades it received. From the Twin Supercharger kit complete with complete carbon package, to the Novitec KW Suspension with hydraulic lift, everything was installed onto the car without a hitch. We ran out of time on Friday to have the car dyno’d but managed to get some video of it on the highway so you can hear the great sound the car now makes. We’ll have it uploaded to our YouTube site in the coming days. This was the first Ferrari we had the pleasure of working with at our location, however the results where the same as with any other marque, another happy customer with gobs of horsepower and a grin from ear to ear.
Titan Motorsports is now an Authorized Distributor for the complete Novitec line of products for Ferrari.
Our Ferrari F430 project continues here at Titan Motorsports with the Novitec technicians progressing at a neck breaking pace. After a mere 2 and a half days of wrenching the supercharger install was complete and fired up with no problems. The sound of a Italian V8 with twin Superchargers is absolutely amazing, we’ll be putting the car on the dyno later this week, with video soon to follow. The engine bay received a host of carbon fiber, from the engine surround trim panels, to hand crafted intercooler pipes. The quality of the parts offered in this kit are second to none and it’s obvious after taking one look at the engine bay why Novitec is one of the leading Ferrari tuenrs in the world. Now that the car is up and running all that is left is to finish re-installing the factory components, install the KW/Novitec suspension and button up a few minor visual updates on the exterior.
The KW / Novitec Hydraulic lift coilovers where installed on the car today, improving the handling of the vehicle while also allowing the driver to raise the front end 44mm from inside the cabin. This was a much needed addition to this vehicle with it’s slammed stance and Novitec front lip leaving little room for clearance under the front bumper.
On the exterior we also replaced the factory bumper lights both front and rear with Novitec smoked LED units, as well as Novitecs black housing tail lights. Rather than just smoke the factory housings, Novitec went the extra mile and created custom black exterior housings, while leaving the reverse light clear for added safety. The car should be wrapped up tomorrow and get it’s change to exercise it’s extra ponies on our Dynojet 248, an event I’m anxious to report the results of, until then enjoy these latest pictures in the gallery below.
After years of building the worlds most powerful Supras, we find ourselves getting requests from existing customers to venture into new territories with their other vehicles. Most recently our attention has been on the Porsche market, however we received a call to facilitate a Novitec Supercharger kit on a F430 for a customer. We delightfully agreed to have the technicians and parts flown in from Germany as is required for all Novitec installs, and the car you see above is the canvas for this great twin supercharger kit. The car arrived today for what is anticipated at being a 5 day install, I’ll be sure to post plenty of pictures during the install process. The end result should be a car that sounds like pure ecstasy while producing 635hp. Final tweaks and tuning will be completed on our in house Dynojet 248 dynomometer. More updates to come as the install progresses.
Today we received a much anticipated air shipment arrived at Titan. We’re quite used to seeing parts shipped truck freight, but when you see a pallet come through the door marked air, you know you’re dealing with a serious individual. Were anxiously to check out the contents which are for a project being done in the shop next week, can you say Supercharged horsie?
