Novitec Takes Ferrari Portofino To 674 HP, Adds Visual Mods

Tuner Novitec has just unveiled its refinement range for the Ferrari Portofino, consisting of three different performance kits. At its best, the Italian exotic’s twin turbo V8 engine has been pushed to produce 674 HP (684 PS) and 871 Nm (642 lb-ft) of torque.

In a straight line, it can now sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, before maxing out at 325 km/h (202 mph), a 5 km/h (3 mph) and 0.3 second improvement over the stock version.

To kick things off, the tuner developed special mapping for its two plug-and-play N-TRONIC modules, which are adapted to the electronic engine controls of the Portofino. In the base configuration, engine output is raised to 658 HP (668 PS) and 851 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque at 4,750 rpm.

Further improvements include the high-performance exhaust system, available with or without sound management by means of active exhaust flaps. This mod not only increases power output, but also saves up to 11 kg (24 lbs) in weight. Then there is the bespoke range of naked carbon aero components, fine-tuned in the wind tunnel.

Extra bits include the front spoiler with air deflector insert for each of the two side air intakes, inserts for the two air intakes in the hood, gill-shaped surrounds for the side air vents in the front fenders and naked-carbon caps for the two side mirrors. The visual aesthetic is further influenced by the NOVITEC rocker panels, carbon fiber rear bumper attachment and the rear spoiler lip.

As for the wheels, they were co-developed with Vossen and are available in two different designs and in a host of different colors. Buyers can get a staggered combination of 21- and 22-inch rims (front/rear), while Pirelli provides you with custom tires. Visually, the NF8 wheels feature pairs of spokes that are slanted in the direction of travel so as to improve airflow through the arches.

In order to improve on the Portofino’s handling characteristics, Novitec also installed sport springs so as to lower the ride height by roughly 35 mm (1.37 inches). Additionally, the hydraulic front-lift system allows the driver to raise the front end of the supercar by 40 mm (1.57 inches) – the front end then lowers itself back down automatically after the car reaches a speed of 80 km/h (49 mph).

With the interior, the tuner can cater to Ferrari owners’ requests when it comes to adding leather and Alcantara, allowing them to choose from a variety of available colors and patterns for the upholstery.
