Earlier this year, Novitec released an aerodynamic kit for the Ferrari 812 Superfast complete with a lowered suspension and high-performance exhaust system for the car’s 6.5-liter V12 engine.
Now it’s time for the German tuner to unleash its full range of upgrades aimed at Ferrari’s ultra-quick grand tourer. We’re talking about a widebody version that completely transforms the 812 Superfast’s looks, complemented by hi-tech forged wheels and a power upgrade.
Under the label Novitec N-Largo, the elaborate bodywork modification for the Ferrari 812 Superfast gives it the looks of a street-legal race car. Made entirely of carbon, the widebody kit adds a width of 140 mm (5.5 inches) at the rear axle and 70 mm (2.75 inches) at the front axle of the Italian supercar, while also improving the its aerodynamic efficiency.
The Novitec N-Largo widebody kit has been created in cooperation with designer Vittorio Strosek who has taken aerodynamic inspiration from Formula 1 for the fenders. There’s a clear motorsports vibe to the exterior styling modifications, from the naked-carbon central front spoiler to the massive diffuser and fixer rear wing.
Filling the larger fender wells are Novitec NF 10 NL hi-tech forged wheels, developed specifically for this car in cooperation with U.S. wheel manufacturer Vossen. The rims come in a staggered setup (21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the rear) and feature an extremely concave design with five filigree double-spokes. The 12.5Jx22 rear wheels are shod with massive 335/25 ZR 22 Pirelli P-Zero high-performance tires, while the front 10Jx21 wheels wear 275/30 ZR 21 tires.
The tuned Ferrari 812 Superfast also comes with a revised suspension featuring sport springs that lower the ride height by about 35 mm (1.4 inches). There’s also a Front Lift system available for the front axle which raises the nose of the car by about 40 mm (1.6 inches) at the touch of a button.
Finally, Novitec engineers are also developing a performance upgrade for the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine. Via new mapping for the ECU, they target a maximum output of 840 PS (829 hp) at 8,750 rpm and a peak torque of 751 Nm (554 lb-ft) at 7,300 rpm. Thanks to the extra 40 horses and 33 Nm (24 lb-ft), the 812 Superfast should sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and top out at 345 km/h (214 mph). Compared to the stock car, those are relatively modest gains of 0.1 seconds and 5 km/h, respectively.
Novitec also recommends that Ferrari 812 Superfast owners fit a high-performance quad exhaust system which optimizes the power delivery by reducing the exhaust back pressure and produces a spectacular V12 exhaust note. Available with or without actively controlled exhaust flaps, Novitec’s exhaust system is made of stainless steel or Inconel, saving up to 11 kg (24.2 lbs) in the process.
Finally, the Bavarian tuner can also tailor the 812 Superfast’s cockpit to the customer’s preferences; for example, by using leather and Alcantara in any desired color.
