Novitec Ferrari F8 Spider Stuns in Black over Gold

Novitec has presented their latest take on the Ferrari F8 Spider, the material of choice is carbon and the precise-fit components can be finished using the body color or ordered in naked carbon with high-gloss coating.

The Ferrari F8 Spider is powered by a 3.8L twin-turbo V8 engine with an output of 802 hp at 8000 rpm and 898 Nm of torque at a low 3,100 rpm. The acceleration from 0-100km/h is achieved in 2.6 seconds, 0-200km/h in 7.8 seconds and the top speed is over 340km/h.

The vehicle has been fitted with a two-piece front spoiler to reduce the aerodynamic front-axle lift and improve the stability and handling of the car when moving at high speed. Furthermore, the carbon insert for the front fascia is based on the current Formula 1 race cars and the carbon flaps on both sides of the bumper deliver sufficient air into the cooling air intakes.

The Novitec race-looking inserts for the hood, the panel in front of the windshield, the door handles and the side mirrors have been designed and modelled after the modern Grand Prix race cars. The carbon inserts for the air intakes behind the doors direct the airflow directly to the radiators and the air filters.

The vehicle has been equipped with a sporty carbon spoiler lip, alternatively, Novitec also offers a bigger rear spoiler in ducktail design or a rear wing for this Ferrari. Various upgrades for the rear fascia like naked-carbon trim for the diffuser as well as an optional complete carbon fibre diffuser with redesigned fins are also available.

In addition, vehicles equipped with an ex-factory backup camera can be enhanced with a carbon surround for this feature. The company also offers an engine cover with integrated ventilation slots and a panel in naked-carbon version.

The model has been fitted with a set of tailor-made wheels/tires combination, the high-tech forged wheels are light and strong despite the large dimensions of 9Jx21 at the front axle and 12Jx22 at the rear axle. The wheels have been combined with a set of high-performance tires of size 255/30 ZR21 and 335/25 ZR22. The wheels have been finished in ‘Satin Bronze’ from the wide range of Vossen colors available.

The hydraulic suspension system enables the front end of the vehicle to be raised by 40mm at the touch of a button when the car is approaching bumps or parking garage ramps. The vehicle can revert its height at a touch of a button or automatically at a high speed of 80km/h. The sport springs can also lower the vehicle by 35mm to optimize the handling of the vehicle due to lower centre of gravity.

The thermally insulated high-performance exhaust system is available with or without actively controlled exhaust flaps. Additionally, the installation of the INCONEL variant is for customers who wish for sound, maximum power and weight saving for their vehicles. The heat dissipation can further be optimized by using the 999 fine-gold plating.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale by NOVITEC

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was actually a special model to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari, and while the main power comes from a twin-turbo V8 engine, the SF90 also comes with three additional electric motors for a total power output of 968 hp (735 kW) with a torque figure of 800 Nm … surely impressive numbers straight from the factory in Maranello, Italy.

But we wouldn’t be writing about NOVITEC if they didn’t manage to upgrade the already potent Ferrari SF90 Stradale, the NOVITEC exhaust system with metal catalysts boosts the overall power to 1,033 hp (760 kW) with 858 Nm of torque, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 2.5 seconds after a visit at NOVITEC with a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.

To achieve this increase in power, the NOVITEC exhaust system is created with 100-cell metal catalysts and twin stainless tailpipes that come with a diameter of 112 millimeters, complete with beautiful carbon exhaust tips, this system optimizes exhaust flow and because of the fully thermally insulated pipes the temperature in the engine bay is reduced … if you prefer even more heat control you can always opt for the NOVITEC 999 gold-plating.

The NOVITEC exhaust system is available with, or without electronic sound management, you know, the active control flaps in the exhaust pipes to set the sound to ‘LOUD’ or ‘INSANELY LOUD’, if you want to get the lightest possible exhaust system for your Ferrari SF90 you should get the NOVITEC system in INCONEL, a lightweight material used on Formula One exhaust systems.

While the sound is extremely important, especially on a hybrid car, looks shouldn’t be forgotten other, and to that extend NOVITEC usually teams up with VOSSEN for their forged alloy wheels, and this black Ferrari isn’t any different, a set of high-tech forged wheels made in the USA are fitted, in this case, finished in ‘Bronzino’, but NOVITEC offers 72 different colors to their clients.

These NOVITEC NF10 wheels look like a ten-spoke design, but if you look closely it’s, in fact, a ‘double’ five-spoke design, and thanks to some amazing machining tech, VOSSEN managed to create a set of wheels that perfectly fill out the wheel arches on this Ferrari SF90 Stradale, 9.5×20 inch wheels at the front with 255/35 ZR 20 tires and bigger and wider wheels in 12×21 inch for the rear, this time with massive 325/35 R 21 tires fitted, the staggered dimensions emphasize the wedge shape of this Ferrari.

With custom wheels come the need for lowering a car in my humble opinion, and it seems NOVITEC feels the same way, they offer a set of lowering springs to bring the SF90 30mm lower to the street at the front and 25mm lower at the rear, just enough to make a visual impact, and by lowering the center of gravity, this also improves on handling.

NOVITEC also offers customization for the interior, offering the client the option to color match the leather or Alcantara upholstery to the color they selected on the wheels, but as usual, the demo car doesn’t show any custom interior treatment … I guess now it’s time to wait for NOVITEC to release an aero kit for the SF90, or perhaps even an N-LARGO limited edition.


A new Ferrari F8 Tributo would be a dream car for many already, but as always, there is a market for upgrading even the most precious supercars, companies like Mansory take that to the extreme with complete overhauls of expensive high-end luxury cars and sports cars, but there is a market in between for customers that like to personalize their prized possession without going all-out, and for those, a company like NOVITEC is perfectly suited, with their aerodynamic package for some of the world’s most popular supercars from Lamborghini or Ferrari.

We’ve covered the Ferrari F8 Tributo by NOVITEC a while ago, the Novitec N-Tronic upgrades the twin-turbo V8 together with a high-performance exhaust system from the factory original 720 hp to 802 hp, while a complete body kit available in clear carbon fiber transforms Maranello’s F8 into an aggressive looking Formula One-inspired road car, as for the rear wing, NOVITEC offers multiple options, either a large version that offers massive downforce or a more subtle styled version that draws less attention.

But things change considerably when you go for the famous N-LARGO version from NOVITEC, usually only available in a limited edition, and a lot wider than the factory original model, hence the N-LARGO name, and now we can finally show you what NOVITEC did to the Ferrari F8 Tributo to create their N-LARGO edition on this V8 powered red beauty, only 15 units of the NOVITEC N-LARGO F8T will be available, and for the incredible styling on this two-seater from Italy we have to thank the famous German designer Vittorio Strosek.

To the casual onlooker, this latest N-LARGO might look like any other red Ferrari, but she is far from a factory standard V8 from Maranello, for instance, the rear has been enlarged by 13 cm to a total of 211 cm width, thanks to wider rear fenders that create a stunning hourglass shape with the added bonus of larger air intakes to feed both the V8 engine and the rear disk brakes of fresh air, an additional plus the fact you can now fit 12-inch wide wheels at the rear.

Same for the front fenders, the NOVITEC N-LARGO replacement units widen the standard Ferrari F8 Tributo by 7 cm and come with some stunning, clear carbon fiber vents above the wheels, in this case, massive 9.5×21-inch NOVITEC NF10 NL hi-tech forged wheels made in cooperation with Vossen in the United States, mind you the rear axle gets a staggered 12×22-inch wheel with five, extremely concave delicate twin spokes, tires are 255/30 ZR 21 and 25 ZR 22 respectively.

Because of the wider fenders both front and rear, NOVITEC had to create a bespoke set of side sills to match the increment, and as always the entire aerodynamic package has been extensively tested in the wind-tunnel for optimum performance in channeling air, but also to make sure they look good, which brings us the front and rear design of this new N-LARGO. The front spoiler receives a pair of side fins for that aggressive look, while the rear comes with its own styling … both are completely replacing the factory original parts to make sure they match the wider fenders perfectly.

The rear comes with a  so-called ‘Ducktail’ spoiler, still rather large, but more integrated into the design than a high rear wing on tall struts, add the NOVITEC rear diffuser for optimum downforce on this new N-LARGO, and just to really finish the aggressive styling on the exterior, NOVITEC offers a new engine cover, available in clear carbon fiber, and with an integrated air intake that boasts a scoop mounted just above the roofline, and it effectively optimizes air circulation in the engine bay.

And while you can opt for all these NOVITEC N-LARGO parts to be painted to match the car, I would go for this clear carbon fiber finish, and even get the optional cowl for the front hood in the same lightweight material, you can also get carbon fiber covers for the factory mirrors, however, NOVITEC also lists N-LARGO bespoke side mirrors and quarter lights … all made from lightweight carbon fiber naturally.

The NOVITEC N-LARGO rides about 35 mm lower to the street than the original Ferrari F8 Tributo, which could cause problems getting into your garage, or drive onto a speed bump, but fear not, NOVITEC has you covered here too, raising the car by about 40 mm at the touch of a button … just press the button again to go back to a more ground-hugging stance, or speed up to 80 km/h after which the car lowers itself automatically.

With looks like this new N-LARGO, you just need the power to match, so NOVITEC can increase the original power output by 98 hp to an impressive 818 hp at 7,960 rpm, with 903Nm of torque at 3,100 rpm, not only by fitting a NOVITEC N-TRONIC control module to the engine but also by installing a bespoke exhaust system with carbon fiber and stainless steel exhaust tips, while the rest of the exhaust system can be made from extremely light INCONEL.

Even with the additional width of the car and the massively wide wheels and tires that also create additional drag, this NOVITEC N-LARGO can still accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.6 seconds, getting to 200 km/h takes 7.4 seconds … the impressive top speed is above 340 km/h, with only 15 units to be made you might want to get in touch with NOVITEC quickly if this N-LARGO is something that might interest you.

Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Gets Fresh Novitec Styling

Novitec has equipped the Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD with a new styling package that includes a different bumper, developed a new naked carbon front spoiler attached to the fascia and added a front wing on the center to reduce front-axle lift when the car is at high speeds. The carbon flaps at the front are race-inspired and direct the airflow to the side air intakes.

A special trunk lid is offered as optional, the slits on the right and left side of the exterior body direct the air through a duct into the hood to improve the downforce whereas the front spoiler improves the handling and stability of the car. The naked-carbon rocker panels enable the car to appear lower and allows the brakes to cool faster through their integrated air intakes. The same materials are used on the mirror covers and the air intakes on rear windows to optimize the supply of air to the engine.

Additional parts tuned by Novitec include an optional customized glass hood with larger air intakes that helps to cool the engine or the variant pictured, carbon rear wing which increases the rear-axle downforce and Novitec diffuser.

The Huracan Evo RWD is further fitted with Y shaped 9Jx20 wheels with 245/30 ZR 20 high performance tires on the front axle and 12.5Jx21 rims with 325\25 ZR 21 tires on the rear axle for good grip. This Huracan model and wheels are available in two types of attachment system, either a conventional bolt pattern or a center lock design.

The Sport Springs lower the car by about 35mm, clients can also choose an aluminium coilover suspension option with solid-piston shocks originally designed for the GT3 which features 13 selectable compressions and rebounds for low and high speed range.

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD has maintained the power at 610 hp but the high performance exhaust system can boost its power delivery. Clients are given the choice to choose from stainless steel or lighter Inconel materials used in Formula 1 cars. The exhaust system comes with thermal insulation to lower the temperature in the engine bay, the temperature can be further reduced by use of 999 fine gold plating.

Novitec offers a variety of customization options including colors and Alcantara. Performance and price were not mentioned.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Gains Wider Hips – Spofec Tuning

Spofec revealed their latest Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan now wearing a widebody, 24 inch forged wheels and increased the power.

Dubbed the Spofec Overdose program, fender flares increase the width of the car by 10cm at the front and 12cm at the rear resulting in an overall width of 2.12m. Special rocker panels bind the fender flares at both axles. A Spofec exhaust system is also available with an optional actively controlled exhaust flaps which enable the engine sound to either be discreet or sporty.

The Rolls Royce Black Badge Cullinan is powered by a 6.7 liter V12 engine with two dynamic turbochargers. The output is increased from 600hp to 707hp at a low 5,400 rpm while the torque jumps to 1,060Nm at a low 1,800 rpm. The acceleration from 0-100km\h is achieved in 4.6 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 250km\h.

The Cullinan BB featured here is fitted with wide sports 10inch Spofec SP2 wheels in black specially designed for the Overdose transformation and High-performance street tires measuring 295\30 R 24 front and rear as optimal solution.

A special control module for the air suspension lowers the height by around 40mm while the front spoiler reduces the front axle lift at high speeds.


In the world of SUVs, there was a time the Range Rover Vogue or the Mercedes G-Wagon was the ultimate ‘look at me’ car, these had amazing off-road capabilities, but most of them rarely left paved roads or got a spot of mud on them, and while the G-Wagon was initially a military vehicle, the later models were high-end luxury cars that could go off-road.

In the United States of America, you had a full-size SUV like the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator to take these big vehicles into the luxury segment … but over the years things started to change a bit and other big names in the industry came up with their own SUV, like the Bentley Bentayga that some might not like design-wise, but it is an ultra-high-end luxury SUV with some sportiness to it, perhaps a segment lower, but also very impressive was the Porsche Cayenne and the ‘Bull in the Chinashop’ … the Lamborghini Urus.

But then came another player on the SUV scene … Rolls Royce, with their massive Cullinan, taking its place as the most exclusive factory-made, production luxury SUV, and to make it interesting for those with lots of money but still craving for a little touch of sportiness, Rolls Royce came up with their ‘Black Badge’ series. Ditching the chrome-plated Spirit of Ecstasy for a glossy black finished lady, note you could get that beautiful bonnet ornament sculpture in just about any finish, they even offered it in actual crystal with illumination for a while, but they were forced to discontinue this $4,000 option because there’s a law against illuminated hood ornaments in Europe now.

As the name suggests, a Rolls Royce Black Badge Cullinan is a breed apart from the regular Rolls Royce models, the world-famous front grill is also finished in black, as are most of the otherwise chrome trim around the windows … and no, you can actually order a Black Badge in another shade too … even white. And a Black Badge Cullinan is so ‘un-British’ it almost hurts … but it doesn’t, and I like the idea behind it, the black finish makes the car appeal to a younger crowd, and the Black Badge even comes with a harsher suspension … on a Rolls Royce mind you!

The difference between a Rolls Royce Cullinan and the Black Badge version is about $150,000, and that’s without a trip to SPOFEC in Germany to get their OVERDOSE tuning package, SPOFEC is part of the NOVITEC group by the way, just so you know you are dealing with people that have been in this business for many years.

And before we talk about the exterior of this SPOFEC OVERDOSE, let’s take a peek under that large hood. From the factory, the Rolls Royce Black Badge Cullinan comes with a 6.7-Liter twin-turbo V12 engine you hardly hear when it’s running and has a power output of 600 hp and 900 Nm of torque (the regular Cullinan has 563 hp and 850 Nm of torque for comparison). But SPOFEC offers the N-TRONIC plug-and-play auxiliary ECU, by remapping the injection and ignition and a small increase in turbo boost, the figures are now 707 hp (520 kW) and a peak torque of 1,060 Nm at 1,800 rpm.

Despite the massive size, and weight of 2.7 metric tons, the SPOFEC OVERDOSE can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 4.5 seconds, the top speed is however still restricted to 250 km/h, and while we are still talking about an SUV, the SPOFEC suspension module allows a 40 mm lower ride height for added looks and a lower center of gravity.

But SPOFEC also turns the Rolls Royce Black Badge Cullinan into a ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ sorts of car … where the Rolls Royce is almost as silent as a whisper, with the SPOFEC exhaust, including actively controlled flaps, you can make this Rolls Royce sound like a sports car, there is nothing discreet about the SPOFEC OVERDOSE.

You can just imagine the marketing meeting at SPOFEC when they were discussing the OVERDOSE: “So discretion is out of the windows, let’s change the exterior too, and make it even wider” … they’ve added 10cm (4 inches) width to the front and 12cm (nearly 5 inches) to the rear fenders! This makes the OVERDOSE in total 212cm wide (83.46 inches), which also required a new set of side sills to connect those wide fenders with each other, and while they were at it, they replaced the entire front bumper with a new design, added a spoiler lip at the liftgate, and finished it off with a race-inspired rear diffuser. Precise-fit detachable parts create harmonious transitions from the fascia to the rear flares.

And with all this going on, you just can’t resist replacing the factory original wheels with these new SPOFEC SP2 forged wheels in 10×24 inch configuration, specially created in corporation with Vossen to handle the wider wheel arches, monstrous 295/30 R 24 high-performance tires cover these impressive wheels consisting of nine pairs of twin-spokes and with the wheel bolts disappearing behind a center cover.

The official SPOFEC press release on the OVERDOSE doesn’t list any prices for all these beautiful tuning options … but you know what they say: ‘if you have to ask’ …

Novitec Reveals 840hp Ferrari 812 GTS

Novitec’s Ferrari 812 GTS is here after extensive alterations including aerodynamic enhancement in naked carbon, customised high-tech forged wheels,high-performance exhaust system, customized interior and a power upgrade.

They went for naked carbon as opposed to the regular gloss finished carbon, giving the 812 GTS a sportier appearance. Aero parts went through wind tunnel testing which helps to optimize the handling and stability of the car. The upgrade of the front lip spoiler minimizes the front axle lift and also improves the stability of the car during high speeds.

Novitec is currently working on a performance upgrade for the 6.5L V12 engine. A performance exhaust and sports catalysts were enough to increase the power output to 840hp at 8,750 rpm, while the torque increased to 751Nm at 7,300 rpm. The acceleration from 0-100 km/h now takes 2.8 seconds while the top speed shoots to 345km/h.

The Ferrari 812 GTS is equipped with forged wheels specifically made for the 812 model and three tailor-made wheel/tire combinations for the front and rear axle. All forged wheels are available in a variety of colors and three different surface finishes, standard,brushed or polished. The pictured 812 GTS is fitted with Novitec NF 10 wheels of sizes 10Jx21 and high-performance tires of size 275/30 ZR 21 at the front and 12.5J2x22 wheels with 335/25 ZR tires at the rear.

The height of the Ferrari can be lowered to 35mm by Novitec sport springs making the handling even more agile. The front end can rise up to 4cm by a touch of a button and lower automatically at speeds exceeding 80km/h.

The high-performance exhaust system offers optimized performance and can be combined with 110 mm tailpipes which are adapted to fit the rear. The exhaust system is available with or without sound management by active exhaust flap control and can be finished with 999 fine gold plating for optimized heat distribution.

The company also offers exclusive features for the cockpit including Alcantara leather seats in any colour.

The Ferrari 812 GTS tuned by NOVITEC

As is a successful tradition with Ferrari, there is also an open-top variant of the 812 series, the GTS. The twelve-cylinder front-engine sports car, equipped with a power-retractable hardtop in keeping with the times, can be customized exclusively at NOVITEC, the world’s leading refinement specialist for the powerful sports cars from Maranello.

The extensive product range includes aerodynamic-enhancement components in naked carbon, customized hi-tech forged wheels developed in cooperation with American manufacturer Vossen, a power upgrade to 618 kW / 840 hp, high-performance exhaust systems in various versions, and an interior tailored to the customer’s wishes in every detail.

The NOVITEC designers give the Spider an even sportier appearance with naked-carbon components. Of course, the development of the components did not only focus on thrilling looks: It is also based on extensive wind tunnel testing, which helped to optimize the handling stability of this sports car further.

To minimize front-axle lift, a front spoiler lip upgrades the production fascia. Its complement is a surround for the central air intake, whose two flaps extend over the side air intakes. This upgrade not only gives the 812 a more aggressive front view but also optimizes handling stability at high speeds.

A three-piece spoiler lip taking the form of a separation edge was developed as an aerodynamic counterpart at the rear, as was a strikingly contoured carbon upgrade for the bumper.

The NOVITEC rocker panels calm the airflow between the front and rear wheel arches and give the open-top sports car an even sportier look. The carbon trim for the exterior mirrors and the trim for the side air outlets behind the front wheel arches round off the modified side view. The two air outlets on the hood round off the racing looks.

The forged wheels developed specifically for the 812 models in cooperation with Vossen play of course also a crucial part in the thrilling looks of the Ferrari refined by NOVITEC. To emphasize the wedge shape of the open-top two-seater further, three tailor-made wheel/tire combinations with staggered diameters were developed for the front and rear axle. All NOVITEC forged wheels are available in a variety of colors and with three different surface finishes – standard, polished or brushed.

The Ferrari 812 GTS in the attached photos runs on NOVITEC NF 10 wheels of sizes 10Jx21 with high-performance tires of size 275/30 ZR 21 at the front and size 12.5Jx22 wheels with size 335/25 ZR 22 tires in back. The wheels with five pairs of delicate twin spokes are produced by high-end US manufacturer Vossen using state-of-the-art forging and machining technology. The NOVITEC NF 10 wheels transfer the racing legend of Ferrari to the road-going sports car with their stylized center lock.

The NOVITEC sport springs lower the ride height of the Ferrari by about 35 millimeters. The lowered center of gravity makes the handling even more agile. In order to negotiate obstacles such as speed bumpers or steep parking garage ramps on the road easily, NOVITEC offers a hydraulic height adjustment system for the front axle. At the touch of a button in the cockpit, the front end raises by about four centimeters and lowers again at another touch of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.

Not even an open-top super sports car can ever have enough power. That is why the NOVITEC powerplant engineers are working on a performance upgrade for the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated four-valve V12 engine. With the NOVITEC High Performance exhaust system, combined with sports catalysts, output jumps to 618 kW / 840 hp at 8,750 rpm. At the same time, peak torque grows to 751 Nm at 7,300 rpm. This slings the powerful open-top sports car from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. The top speed increases to 345 km/h.

Of course, the NOVITEC high-performance exhaust systems offer not only optimized performance but also a particularly thrilling exhaust note. They can be combined with tailpipes measuring 110 millimeters in diameter, which are adapted to fit the rear contours. They are available in a version made from polished stainless steel or finished with a matte black coating. The NOVITEC exhaust systems for the 812 are available with or without sound management by means of active exhaust flap control and can also be finished with 999 fine gold plating for optimized heat dissipation.

Opting for the variant made from INCONEL, which is also used for exhaust systems in Formula 1 racing, saves up to eleven kilograms of weight over the production system.

NOVITEC also offers exclusive refinement for the cockpit. The owner of the Spider can have his interior upholstered in the finest leather and Alcantara in virtually any color imaginable.

The McLaren 765LT, longtail, tuned by Novitec

In 1997, the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail won the GT1 class at the world’s most famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With the McLaren 765LT, the UK based sports car manufacturer takes the longtail principle to the road once more, and NOVITEC takes the already impressive base to the next level with an uprated engine reaching 855 hp.

The McLaren 765LT is already a very potent car when it leaves the factory doors, with a twin-turbo, 4-Liter, V8 engine, but NOVITEC offers three versions of their professional engine tuning for this car from Woking. These kits are based on the NOVITEC N-TRONIC add-on control unit, which allows ‘plug-and-play’ performance upgrades.

The top of the line upgrade is called the Performance Stage 2 kit, complete with RACE exhaust system, ceramic coated turbo inlets, and the N-TRONIC box … the result is a 90 hp boost, torque peaks at 898 Nm at 6,300 rpm with a maximum power of 629 kW or 855 p at 7,400 rpm. Going from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 2.5 seconds now, reaching 200 km/h in just 6.5 seconds, with a top speed over 330 km/h, also thanks to the low weight of only 1,350 kg.

The high-performance exhaust upgrade from NOVITEC is made from Inconel, straight from the Formula One scene, weighing even less than titanium, it comes with full thermal insulation to keep the heat down in the engine bay … NOVITEC even offers 999 gold plating, and this includes the quartet of exhaust tips at the rear. Or you can opt for carbon fiber tips, or go for a more subtle matt black finish … to make the exhaust system conversion complete a 100-cell sports metal catalyst is also on the options list.

Novitec tuning wouldn’t be complete without a set of stunning wheels, again from Vossen, these machined NOVITEC MC3 forged wheels show seven double spokes and a track-derived center lock. 20 inches and 21 inches give that staggered look, 9×20 inches with 255/30 ZR 20 for the front, massive 12×21 inches with 325/25 ZR 21 high-performance tires to keep the rear on track. As usual, a 20mm lowering set of NOVITEC sports springs are the final touch you just need to add.

But you’ll want to have your McLaren 765LT by NOVITEC to look good standing still too, and while the wheels do help in that respect, the clear carbon fiber parts from NOVITEC are the cherry on the cake here. A pair of inserts for the headlights, the N-LARGO trunk lid, and let’s not forget the impressive air scoop on the roof … all available in ‘naked carbon fiber’ as NOVITEC likes to call it. Inserts for the side sills and air intakes on either side of the hood come in the same lightweight material.

Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec

If a factory standard Ferrari F8 Tributo just isn’t exclusive enough for you, just give Novitec a call and have them transform your Prancing Horse into an 802 hp super car. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 2.6 seconds, and now the Ferrari doesn’t run out of breath until it reaches 340 km/h.

This increase in performance is thanks to the Novitec engineers development of a custom mapping of two plug-and-play modules, called Novitec N-Tronic, that work in harmony with the standard ECU of the twin-turbo V8. Add the Novitec high-performance exhaust system and the boost from 720 hp to 802 hp is present.

Novitec offers different exhaust options for the Ferrari F8 Tributo, but without a doubt the best one is the lightweight Inconel version, complete with electronic sound management. This Inconel version is also plated with 999 gold, not only for looks, but this material dissipates the heat better (remember the gold surround in the McLaren F1?), and you can even have the 100-cell sports catalyst gold plated to match.

Probably the best part of the Novitec Aero parts for the Ferrari F8 Tributo is the fact you can order them in clear-coated carbon fiber, to get that F1 inspired look on your road car. At the front a two-part spoiler is fitted with flaps on the air intakes, a front hood insert in carbon fiber just completes the F1 look.

Novitec side sills generate a better airflow, and thanks to the carbon fiber mirrors and air deflectors on the side air intakes, the race car looks gets even better. Naturally, you also need a rear wing, and Novitec has options there too, either a large version that offers massive downforce, or a more subtle style version. A new cover can be fitted to the rear diffuser, while a cover for models with a rear-view camera is on the list too.

If you really insist, Novitec will even ship you a complete replacement diffuser for the Ferrari F8 Tributo to fit into the factory rear bumper, add the carbon fiber trim on the engine cover to have the full kit.

The Novitec wheels are made with the service of Vossen, and these forged rims fit the F8 Tributo perfectly, Novitec offers a few different designs for the most discerning customers out there. And on top of that Novitec offers a palette of 72 shades, brushed surface, or polished surface … whichever you prefer.

If you really want to fit a special wheel, you should go for the Novitec NF10 forged wheel, with five, twin spokes and center-lock look. These would be 9×21 at the front and massive 12×22 at the rear, 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22 tires are fitted, and the Ferrari sits 35mm lower to the street thanks to a set of Novitec Sports springs. if the car is fitted with the front lift system, Novitec can install their own rendition that can raise the car by 40mm when needed.

A fully bespoke interior using Alcantara and leather is no problem at all for the artisans at Novitec, they can even change the design of the factory original upholstery, naturally, some exposed carbon fiber will be possible too.

Novitec N-Largo Kit Revealed for the McLaren 720S Spider

Novitec announced an addition to its N-Largo range of body kits this week. The Novitec N-Largo 720S Spider adds a widebody look to the McLaren 720S Spider. If you have seen N-Largo kits before then you will know what to expect from the latest model.

The latest addition to the Novitec range includes a widebody kit with forged carbon elements. This gives the 720S Spider a look inspired by the McLaren Senna.

The bodywork has been created, once again, through a collaboration with German designer Vittorio Strosek. Width is increased by six centimetres at the front and by thirteen centimetres at the rear axle. The front fenders and the rear fenders are complete replacements.

The N-Largo gets a unique side skirt and a set of air intakes aft of the doors. The front bumper is entirely new with a new front blade and several naked carbon elements. The trunk lid, side mirror covers, side skirt strips and rear wing attachment, all come finished in forged carbon fibre.

It sits on 20 and 21 inch Vossen wheels. The design is MC2 and they are manufactured to customer’s individual finish. They have a centre lock look

Power receives an upgrade too. The 4.0-litre V8 engine puts out an impressive 806 hp and 878 Nm of torque. Performance gets a similar boost with 100 km/h arriving in 2.7 seconds and 200 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. Terminal velocity is 346 km/h.

Other changes include the addition of an extremely light Inconel exhaust system. The ride height can be lowered too, with a special set of Novitec sports springs. These bring the N-Largo 35 millimetres closer to the ground.

Novitec also offers a complete series of customisation options for the Novitec N-Largo 720S Spider. Just 15 examples will be made worldwide. Novitec is expecting it to sell out quickly, just like its Coupe brother! If you are after something a little less extreme, Novitec have you covered too.


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.

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.
