    Looks fantastic. Rear spoiler looks great to me, and is functional.

    Searching on Google reveals some pics.

    But that is very impressive, IMHO. I would love to see what they can eek out of that V12.

    I do ask because I know that Novitec did NOT give pics to the press till today and that there where no spy shots of the car till now. The only reasen could be that speedfreak6969 who's working at CEC got them for a personal preview.

    I know most details about the car due to the fact that we make a report on it in a few days, another reason why I wanted to know the origin of these pics.

    Best wishes...!

    If they were after functionality, they could have replaced the cars undertray and incorporated a diffuser, without resorting to the riced out image.
    Just my $0.02 worth.

    I'd have a bit more respect for them if they manufactured wheels specifically for the 550/575 instead of retrofitting 360 wheels with spacers.

    Let's see Ferrari had the 550 in a wind tunnel for 5000 hours or 645 straight eight hour days to acheive great ground effects, while still keeping the car at a slippery .33 coefficient. How many hours do you think that Novitec invested in that cheap rice wing? Where are the enhanced ground effects for the front to balance out the supposed increase in ground effects created by that wing? It looks to me like they just painted the front spoiler to match the body. I hope that they charge a ton for anyone who is stupid enough to buy into it all.

    No one has mentioned the REAL question yet -- is this an appearance only package, or is this also a twin supercharger engine package (like the 360's)?

    Given Novitec's history, I think there will be twin centrifugal blowers, or a roots blower, or twin turbo's (which could be the reason for the venting). But regardless of the method, the car will certainly lay down some rubber.

    I went to the factory in Feb and saw this car up on the lift being worked on, they told me Novitec would offer just the styling and exhausts no engine work will be done to the 575.

    The wing has got to go..and the 'relief' on the side sills is to 80'ish. Overall the bigger wheels and lowered stance gives it an even more brutish appearance.

    As Mr. Tezta said, there will be NO engine mods for the 575. I talked to Novitec several times in the last months, this is a fact. But the SOUND is really amazing as far as I heard.
