This Novitec Ferrari Portofino has more power than an Enzo
The ‘entry-level’ Ferrari has been boosted to 675bhp
Released in 2002, the Ferrari Enzo was the original 21st century hypercar. In the power obsessed world of today though, its 650bhp output is being bettered left, right and centre. In fact, thanks to German tuners Novitec, you can now get the ‘entry-level’ Ferrari Portofino with a whopping 675bhp. Crikey.
The Portofino replaced the California T as Ferrari’s convertible GT offering back in 2018, and as ‘standard’ it comes out of the factory producing 591bhp from its twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8.
Clearly that’s not enough for some, as Novitec will combine special engine mapping with increased boost pressure and a high-performance exhaust system to achieve that 84bhp hike.
The result is a 0.3 second drop in the 0-62mph time to 3.2 seconds, and what is presumably a very blustery 202mph top speed. You can also spec that exhaust without any noise-killing active flaps if you really want to toast your ears.
Elsewhere there’s some pleasingly restrained visual upgrades. New carbon splitters, a lip spoiler and alloys developed in conjunction with Vossen all contribute to the slightly more aggressive look that should complement the power. As does the 35mm drop in ride height thanks to new sports suspension.
So, are these sensible upgrades or does a convertible GT with more power than an Enzo prove that the world has gone power mad? Start the debate in the comments below.
