The Novitec Rosso Race 848 is set to be one of the most potent exhibits at Geneva. sporting a huffing twin-compressor V12, the supercar makes a heady 848hp.

The Novitec Rosso Race 848 will make its world debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show where it will surely be one of the most powerful cars on display. With only three examples planned for production it should also be one of the most exclusive. Based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the car has been modified to gain performance in every area possible.

That powerful 6.0-litre V12 is induced with a twin-compressor system and was upgraded in a number of mechanical ways while its electronics were reprogrammed. Some of the improvements listed include a custom-developed intake manifold, high-performance injectors and a sport air filter.

In the end the supercar develops 624kW (848 PS / 837 hp) at 7,900rpm and 842Nm (621 lb-ft) at 6,300rpm. It makes use of a six-speed F1-Superfast transmission actuated through shift paddles. At its fastest it will go from 0 - 100km/h in 3.4 seconds, 0 - 200km/h (124 mph) in 9.6 seconds and 0 - 300km/h (186 mph) in 23.7 seconds. Top speed is 345km/h (214 mph).

As far as visuals and aerodynamics are concerned, Novitec has installed a front spoiler lip to help reduce frontal lift, an upgrade of the rear apron, a custom rear wing for more downforce and a rear diffuser. The air flow between the front and rear wheel arches is calmed by Novitec Rosso rocker panels whose air ducts also optimise the supply of cooling air for the rear brakes. Speaking of which, the latter were provided by one of the biggest names in performance brake technology, Brembo.

Cosmetic changes include a matte-white aluminium body that contrasts with grey accents in places such as the roof, black side masks, LED backup lights and black tail lights.

The company will customise each car's interior to customers' specifications.
