Ferrari 16m Finds a Speed Boost

ns-scudera-3

German tuning firm Novitec Rosso has been on my radar since 2007’s Geneva Auto Show. Now, taking the 16m (a convertible version of the F430 Scuderia Spider) that Ferrari built to commemorate winning their 16th Formula 1 constructors Championship last year, they’ve shown the capacity of their mechanics.

The 16m, already a fast machine as built (3.8 seconds from 0 to 62 mph at a standstill), was tuned to grab the road with 696 horsepower and 8,400 RPM. If that isn’t enough, there is 503 pound-feet to put the pedal to the metal. 

And if you’re curious, the 16m – with help from Novitec Rosso – can do 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and can reach up to 205 mph.

With only 499 currently in construction, these Ferraris are not cheap – $313, 350 USD for the 16m. If you want the fastest drop-top on the planet, get ready to pay $66,400 USD to Rosso to make it happen.

(Technically, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport is faster, but at $2.1 million USD, who really is going to notice, especially if you’re behind the wheel of the Ferrari 16m?)
