Novitec Rework Ferrari 488 Pista to 800 hp

Novitec have applied their expertise to the latest Ferrari, the Ferrari 488 Pista. The Pista is the most extreme variation of the 488, yet it is not extreme enough for Novitec it seems. Novitec package adds some significant power gains, aerodynamic parts and a set of cosmetic tweaks.

The Ferrari V8 receives an ECU tune and a new Inconel exhaust system. These small changes release a 82 hp and 128 Nm of torque. In total, the Novitec 488 Pista now produces 802 hp and 898 Nm of torque. The improvements boost performance such that it takes just 2.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h and top speed increases to 345 km/h.

Alongside the Novitec performance package, a set of hi-tech forged wheels have been provided by American manufacturer Vossen. They measure 22 inches on the pictured model but further options are available.

The front facia receives a Novitec spoiler blade and a new front hood moulding. New rocker panels have been fitted and carbon coverings are available for the side mirrors and the window triangles. A new spoiler lip at the rear and carbon surrounds for the taillights finish the look.

Black details have been added to the side indicators, reflectors and third brake light. A new hydraulic suspension system lowers ride height by 35 mm, this can be raised by 40 mm at the touch of a button, automatically retracting at 80 km/h.

McLaren 600LT By Novitec

Generally speaking, those who own supercars are usually content with the stock specifications. Given the price of these exotic machines, buyers already know that they are getting top-notch quality and performance. On the other hand, for some of you who want more than what’s available by default, aftermarket tweaks are the way to go. When you seek the best, German precision engineering will cater to your needs, as demonstrated by the McLaren 600LT by Novitec.

The Bavarian tuner offers an exclusive menu of upgrades that will please even the most discerning clientele. This is a fairly new addition to its services that is available for owners of the 600LT spider or coupe variants. There are a total of three tuning options to choose from. The first two configurations focus entirely on the vehicle’s ECU. However, the main course, which they are calling Performance Stage 2, is where the magic truly happens.

On top of reworking the electronics, Novitec will then supply a new premium exhaust system setup, after a fresh engine remap. It tacks on an additional 88 horses on top of its default output for a total of 688 horsepower. This kicks it up a notch to complete a zero to 62 mph sprint in 2.8 seconds alongside a speed boost of up to 207 miles per hour.

Furthermore, the sports-grade suspensions keep everything nice and low, while the custom Vossen wheels add some style. Other cosmetic changes include a carbon fiber air intake and new trunk lid design. Ultimately, the McLaren 600LT performance kit by Novitec is one impressive tune-up.

Ferrari 812 Superfast N-Largo Kit By Novitec

As if the Ferrari 812 Superfast wasn’t nearly enough, here comes Novitec thinking what other boundaries can it push?

Thanks to its fierce drive to make already excellent cars even better, we get this Ferrari 812 Superfast N-Largo kit, which brings a new visual language alongside performance upgrades to Ferrari’s supercar.

The modification adds 5.5 inches of width to the vehicle’s rear end, in large part thanks to fender flares tailored atop the original body. And quite aggressively so, if we might add. There’s also a 2.8-inch addition on the front, care of custom carbon fiber rocker panels. That helps bring the car closer to the blackop while improving its aerodynamic performance in the process.

We’re also talking a subtle roof-mounted spoiler and big rear wing, with restyled air vents and a new bumper orientation, to boot. It gets 21-inch front wheels, while 22-inch ones round it all out on the back. Wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero high-performance tires, no less.

The concave design is striking, and gives the whole ride a sleek and feisty profile. Novitec also changed the suspension, changing the springs and ride height. It also added a front lift system that raises the front of the car with the push of a button.

In terms of performance, there’s a new ECU mapping that boosts power to 829 horsepower. That’s drops the zero to 60 mph time to just 2.8 seconds. You also get a breakneck top speed of 214 mph. It’s not called “Superfast” for anything, after all.

Novitec N-Largo Ferrari 812 Superfast Takes Things up a Notch

For When the 812 Superfast Isn’t Enough

Novitec has now released all of the Ferrari 812 Superfast upgrades with the Novitec Ferrari 812 N-Largo. The upgrades change the way the car looks and help improve performance as if the 812 Superfast was lacking in that department.

While we’d be hesitant to fuss with the 812 Superfast, we can say that the modified Prancing Horse looks pretty impressive with the Novitec body kit and forged wheels on it. The changes take the car from looking like a beautiful Ferrari GT car to looking like a serious racing car that just happens to be street legal. 

Designer Vittorio Strosek helped Novitec create the gorgeous widebody kit for the car. It offers F1-like aerodynamic features and changes the look of the car considerably. The kit is made of full carbon fiber, and it also adds a fixed rear wing to the car. The wheels you see on the car were developed specifically for Novitec and for this car in particular. They’re made through a partnership with wheel manufacturer Vossen. 

The wheels offer a staggered setup. The front wheels measure 21 inches and the rear come in at 22 inches. The concave design, and with five double spokes give the car a beautiful look. Novitec wraps those wheels with Pirelli P-Zero high-performance tires. The suspension also gets updates, including changes to the springs, ride height, and the addition of a front lift system that raises the front of the car at the touch of a button. 

Performance modifications for the engine include a new ECU mapping that boosts power to 829 hp. The 0-60 mph time should drop to 2.8 seconds. Novitec also recommends a special high-performance quad exhaust system.

Ferrari 812 Superfast By Novitec

Novitec is a custom shop that believes fast cars can be faster. Its latest handiwork? The Ferrari 812 Superfast, which, already beastly enough as it is, got an extra boost, at least visually, thanks to the crafty (and perhaps mad) folks at Novitec.

Unfortunately, this customized car doesn’t have more power than a regular 812 Superfast. In other words, Novitec did a purely visual upgrade. However, the shop says its engineers are working on a “performance upgrades” for the ride’s base 6.5-litre V12 engine.

If true, that means we could be getting something even faster than the machine’s standard 789 horsepower, and perhaps something more impressive than its already amazing 0 to 60 acceleration in just under three seconds.

So yes, it’s a bummer Novitec didn’t make a faster car out of a fast car, but don’t fret. It did make an already cool-looking ride even cooler. Novitec swapped out huge body parts in favor of carbon fiber ones. Among them are the wind-tunnel-developed chin spoiler and front grille attachment, rocker panels, a rear spoiler lip, and the rear fascia.

You can take that even further with an optional shocks package. It lowers the whole ride to 1.37 inches. On the other hand, there’s also a hydraulic lift that can raise the front end by 1.57 inches. Pricing information is yet to come, unfortunately. Expect the cost to be astronomical, of course. Certainly much more expensive than a regular 812 Superfast. We’ll update this article once we learn more, so stay tuned.

Novitec Ferrari 812 Superfast Revealed

The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been in the market for a little over a year now. It is a highly sought after car with long waiting times and rumours of a production run that is entirely sold out. Novitec have only recently managed to get their hands on one. The Novitec 812 Superfast has officially arrived!

What we have here is the first stage of Novitec’s performance packages. Normally there is a relatively subdued version of their V12 supercars which is followed by an insane N-Largo version with widebody elements and all sorts of additional aero. For their first attempt, Novitec’s kit is relatively simple, albeit, constructed to a very high quality.

Novitec offers a new front spoiler lip, surrounds for the central air intake. The rear gets a new spoiler lip and carbon fibre elements are added to the rear facia. At the side, there is a new side skirt and the hood gets two carbon air outlets with carbon surrounds for the side air outlets aft of the front fender wells. Finally, Novitec can also supply carbon fibre mirror caps for the finishing touch.

Novitec’s wheels are produced in cooperation with US wheel manufacturer Vossen. At the front they measure 10×21 inches, at the rear 12.5×22. The Novitec NF8 Directional and NF9 rims can be finished in any colour. For the suspension, Novitec offers sport springs calibrated to the production suspension, which lower the ride height of the front-engine sports car by about 35 millimetres. A front lift system does the opposite and raises the front by 40 millimetres.

Novitec normally offer a range of performance enhancements for the 812 Superfast. At present, Novitec plan to have performance enhancements on offer, however, there are no details on what these will entail. Novitec are still working on a package. What is available is a high-performance exhaust system with 110-millimeter tailpipes finished in stainless steel. The system can be ordered in Inconel should you wish.

As ever, Novitec can cater for any taste when it comes to interior appointments. Alcantara, leather and carbon fibre are no problem, it really depends on taste and the size of your wallet!

Novitec N-Largo McLaren 720s boasts big presence to match big power

If a carbon tax referred to a penalty based on how much carbon fiber were used to build a car, specialty tuner Novitec Group would be looking at a hefty bill for its most recent creation. The Novitec N-Largo adds not just a styling kit, not just a performance upgrade, not just a suspension adjustment, but all three to the already massively talented 720s supercar.

Based in Germany, Novitec has made a name for itself tuning elite performance and luxury cars, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, Maseratis, Teslas, and McLarens. In the past, Novitec has offered its takes on McLaren’s 540C, the 570S, the 570GT, and even a different example of the 720s. But this new build has a much more assertive personality than the previously subtle makeover.

Limited to just 15 examples, the N-Largo gives the 720s a look similar to that of the McLaren Senna. Using molded carbon fiber, the N-Largo ditches the soft and suave curves of the stock car for a more aggressive demeanor. The car can been lowered 1.3 inches with sport springs, and it sits on staggered Vossen MC2 forged center-lock wheels, 20-inch in the front and 21-inch in the rear, wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber.

Novitec notes that the new bumpers completely replace the original McLaren parts and bolt to the secure original connection points. The styling kit was not devoid of practical thought, either, as the kit maintains the aerodynamic and cooling bits that help make the 720s such a deadly performance vehicle. The N-Largo also adds a new rear airfoil attachment that is claimed to increase downforce.

Most importantly, Novitec crafted three different levels of performance tunes for the 720s. According to Vossen, an auxiliary control unit plugs in and adapts to the electronic engine controls on the car. In the most powerful stage 2 configuration, which includes a performance exhaust, the N-Largo shows up to the tune of 794 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque, 84 more horses and 80 more lb-ft than the standard 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque from the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. According to Novitec and Vossen, this gives the N-Largo a 0-62 time of 2.7 seconds, a 0-124 run in 7.5 seconds, and a top speed of about 215 mph.

There’s no word on pricing or availability, but we can tell you this: Novitec is already working on an interpretation of the McLaren 600LT. We have a feeling it might be even more braggadocious than the 720s.

Novitec Reveals Upgraded McLaren 720S

What happens when you take the top performing supercar on the market today and let one of the best tuning companies have their way with it? Novitec is here to let us all know. On their latest project, the German tuning company decided to up the ante with a car that leaves nearly all its competitors in the dust. The McLaren 720S does not fall short on power without additional aftermarket modifications, by any means. If there’s anything to say about the British supercar, it’s that it is blisteringly quick. So its only makes sense to give it a Novice treatment, right?

As the name suggests, the standard McLaren 720S boasts 720 horsepower coming from a 4.0 litre V8 propelling the car from 0-200 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and keeping the fun going until 341 km/h. Now, Novitec places the 720S firmly in hypercar territory with a conversion that rockets it to 100km/h in just 2.7 sec, to 200km/h in 7.5 seconds, and on to a sensational 346km/h maximum speed. Bear in mind that all this is coming from a super series McLaren – that is to say not a limited ‘ultimate’ or ‘legacy’ series car that costs an arm and a leg. In fact, this kind of street legal performance usually comes at price tags above €1 million, whereas the 720S has an MSRP south of €300,000.

The options list for the 720S tune extends to a three-stage engine conversion programme for up to 806hp (592kW), along with 878Nm of torque, sport exhaust systems, carbon-fibre aerodynamic components, suspension upgrades, and the distinctive Novitec MC1 forged alloy wheels.

The available aero package includes headlamp inserts, a full width front spoiler with a more pronounced lip, air splitter, side fins and longer air intake surrounds to improve the channelling of ram air. All those external modifications are of course in carbon fibre. Completing the carbon-fibre madness is a set of optional and purely decorative components including the air intakes for the front bonnet, rear engine cover, rear bumper side trims, side air intakes, sill entrance panels, and door mirror caps.

Novitec hasn’t released a price for the tune yet, but we think it’ll worth the upgrade!

Novitec Reveals Lamborghini Huracan Performante Upgrades

Sick of your standard Lamborghini Huracan Performante? Novitec have you sorted with their latest set of updates. The German company have developed a series of enhancements for the fastest Lamborghini.

The tailor-made aerodynamic components have been fine-tuned in the wind tunnel. Made from Forged Composite material which matches the production carbon-fiber components, the package includes attachments for the front left and right facia and a protruding spoiler blade.

Novitec gets a trunk hood with integrated air ducts left and right and fender vents for the wheel arches. On the side, rocker panels connect the front to the back using larger air intakes. The rear benefits from diffuser attachments.

The wheels are Novitec’s NL3 forged wheels developed in collaboration with Vossen. They measure 20 inches at the front and 21 inches on the rear. Optionally, they are also available with center lock. Sport springs make for a harder ride, lower by 35 millimetres. An inconel or stainless steel high-performance exhaust system is also available.

Novitec are also able to offer bespoke interiors with a blend of leather and alcantara. For now, the engine remains the same, however, Novitec are working on a set of performance updates for the Lamborghini Huracan Performante which should soon be made available.
