Novitec Rosso Fiat Panda

Clever and sporty: These two attributes best describe the NOVITEC tuning program for the Fiat New Panda. NOVITEC is the global market leader in the refinement of Fiat and Alfa Romeo automobiles.

The body of the new Panda receives some added thrills with a front and rear spoiler. Custom-tailored 17-inch alloy wheels with corresponding ride-height lowering round out the dynamic NOVITEC appearance. Engine tuning for the Multijet diesel engine and the TwinAir gasoline engine as well as a stainless-steel sport exhaust provide even more driving pleasure with the Italian subcompact car.

To make the front of the new Panda even more striking the NOVITEC designers have developed a front spoiler that attaches to the production fascia. In addition, a rear spoiler was shaped to upgrade the rear section.

Wheels make or break a car and consequently the tuner upgrades the New Panda with custom-tailored 7.5Jx17 wheels. The NOVITEC N10 alloy wheels with eight curved double spokes are available with a matte-black or silver polished finish. They make full use of the available space in the wheel wells. Tests proved low-profile tires in size 215/35 R 17 to be perfect on front and rear axle. The NOVITEC N10 wheels are available at a cost of 159 euros per wheel. 

The NOVITEC sport springs are calibrated specifically these sporty tires. In conjunction with the production shocks they lower the ride height of the Fiat by about 35 millimeters. As an alternative, NOVITEC offers a coilover suspension with sporty yet comfortable ride that can lower the ride height of the Panda between 30 and 80 millimeters.

NOVITEC offers a strong power boost for the two-cylinder, four-valve TwinAir gasoline engine of the Fiat New Panda. The NOVITEC Powerjet 2 auxiliary control unit bumps power output of the turbocharged engine to 73 kW / 99 hp. Thus equipped the five-door car accelerates from 0 -100 km/h in just 10.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 188 km/h.

Installed in just a few minutes thanks to its plug-and-play design, the NOVITEC Powerrail 5 module boosts power output of the 1.3 16V Multijet turbodiesel engine from standard 55 kW / 75 hp to 67 kW / 91 hp. As a result, the sprint time from rest to 100 km/h is shortened from 12.8 to 11.9 seconds and top speed increases from 168 to 178 km/h.

With or without engine tuning: The NOVITEC sport rear muffler with one round 90-millimeter tailpipe on the left and right side each lends the various New Panda engines a more resounding exhaust note.
