Unique Sportcars Teams up with Novitec Rosso for "Calavera" Ferrari F430

Luxury Cars: Ferrari's F430 is destined to bow out towards the end of the year, set to be replaced by an all-new model, but in the lead up to its swan song German design group Unique Sportcars has teamed up with fellow Teutonic tuner Novitec Rosso to create the "Calavera." Limited to just 11 examples, the Calavera (Spanish for Skull) is based around a highly modified F430 with unique airbrushing done by artist Knud Tiroch.

Tiroch is one of the best in the business, previously being commissioned by David Coulthard, ZZ Top, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many more. Unique Sportcars, on the other hand, develops exclusive designs for customers wanting more than off-the-shelf.

Some of the unique elements of the Calavera are the LED daytime running lights, engine dress-up kit, embroidered seats and an extended middle console.

Novitec Rosso has been left with the task of boosting output of the F430's high-revving 4.3L V8 engine. To accomplish this task, the tuner has added its now familiar twin-supercharging system, which in its latest evolution outputs 707hp (522kW) and 525lb-ft (712Nm) of torque and promises 0-100km/h times of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 348km/h.

Other modifications include subtle aero pieces, new 20in alloy wheels, uprated brakes, stiffer suspension (lowering the car by 35mm) and a sports exhaust system.

Unique Sportcars is taking orders for the cars now, and customers will have to wait roughly three months for their completeed cars once commissioned.
