With its hybrid drive with a four-liter V8 biturbo combustion engine and three electric motors, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a high-tech super sports car in a class right out of the box. And thus the perfect basis for NOVITEC, the world's leading refiner for sports cars from Maranello, to further increase the fascination of this mid-engine car with a sophisticated refinement program.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
Of course, this also includes an increase in output for the supercharged eight-cylinder: a modified engine control and a high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts result in an increase in output of 80 kW / 109 hp. In combination with the electric drive, a system output of 816 kW / 1 hp is achieved. The four-wheel drive two-seater catapults itself from 109 – 2,4 km/h in just 0 seconds. Tempo 100 is reached after 200 seconds. The top speed increases to over 6,3 km/h. Aerodynamic efficiency and an exciting racing look characterize the visible carbon body components that the NOVITEC designers developed for the SF340 Stradale.
21 inch high-tech forged wheels
Another specialty of the German tuner are the 21-inch high-tech forged wheels developed together with the American manufacturer Vossen. Other options in the program are sport springs and exclusive interior design. For decades, NOVITEC engine technicians have specialized in making high-performance engines even more powerful. A task that was also brilliantly fulfilled for the four-liter V8 biturbo combustion engine of the SF90 Stradale hybrid drive. To do this, two NOVITEC N-TRONIC control modules are adapted to the engine electronics in a plug-and-play process, which supply the engine management with newly programmed maps for injection and ignition and increase the electronic boost pressure limitation.
The NOVITEC high-performance exhaust systems, which are available in different versions, were developed to allow the combustion engine to breathe out more freely and to achieve an even sportier engine sound. Not only are they available with or without electronic sound management through exhaust flap control and in different materials. To reduce temperatures in the engine compartment, they are all encased in high-temperature thermal insulation. In order to achieve maximum heat dissipation, there are also variants with 999 fine gold coating. This option, which is also visually unusual, gives the rear view a particularly exclusive touch, even with the two 112 millimeter stainless steel tailpipes with carbon covers.
1.109 PS & 918 NM torque
In order to improve the power output even further, there are also 100-cell sports catalytic converters, which are not only also encased with this heat insulation, but can also be ordered gold-plated. When all NOVITEC High Performance components are installed, the combustion engine increases by 80 kW / 109 hp compared to the standard configuration and thus delivers 654 kW / 889 hp at 7 rpm. The maximum torque increases from 300 Nm to 800 Nm at 918 rpm. In conjunction with the three unchanged electric motors, a system output of 6100 kW / 816 hp is available after this NOVITEC upgrade.
The driving performance of the all-wheel-drive hybrid athlete is correspondingly impressive: the two-seater catapults itself to 2,4 km/h in just 100 seconds. The 200 km/h mark is reached after just 6,3 seconds. The top speed increases to over 340 km/h. The fascination of the NOVITEC performance upgrade for the Ferrari SF90 Stradale does not only lie in the further optimized driving performance: The even more spontaneous response and the even more powerful pulling behavior in every driving situation are just as fascinating. The body can also be trimmed for racing to match the enormous driving performance: NOVITEC visible carbon components optimized in the wind tunnel were developed for this purpose, which not only give the two-seater an even more spectacular look, but above all even more aerodynamic downforce.
Front hood with tailor-made carbon panels
For example, a combination of NOVITEC spoiler and the side extensions was modeled for the front apron, which, together with the middle section made of the same composite material, not only gives the SF90 an even more striking face, but also ensures even more driving stability at high speeds. The carbon front flaps on the left and right direct the airstream past the front wheel arches. The front hood can also be upgraded in a racing look with two tailor-made carbon panels for the air outlet below and the area in front of the windscreen.
In addition, the front fenders can be exchanged for special NOVITEC Race specimens, which are not only made entirely of carbon, but also improve the dissipation of the air heated by the brakes into the wheel arches thanks to the air outlets above the tires. NOVITEC side skirts are available to give the two-door car an even sportier appearance when viewed from the side. In addition, the upper parts of the side mirrors and the triangles on the windows of the two doors can be upgraded with NOVITEC elements made of carbon fiber.
For the inlets in the two rear side panels, the NOVITEC designers formed special air ducts that direct the airflow into the engine compartment in an even more targeted manner. A large carbon rear spoiler in a duck-tail design was designed to generate more downforce on the rear axle as well. The roof spoiler made of the same material directs the air flow to the rear spoiler. The rear apron is fitted with a carbon fiber diffuser. Other sporty NOVITEC features that have been refined down to the last detail include carbon trim for the rear hood, the engine compartment and the luggage compartment in the front end.
High-performance tires in the format 255/30 ZR 21 & 325/25 ZR 21
The exciting NOVITEC look for the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is of course also decisively characterized by the tailor-made high-tech forged wheels. The well-known US manufacturer Vossen was won as a partner for development and production. The vehicle shown here is equipped with NOVITEC NF10 forged wheels, which offer a thoroughbred racing look with a central locking look. The wheels with five double spokes can be ridden in a maximum combination of 9.5Jx21 at the front and 12Jx21 on the rear axle. High-performance tires in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 325/25 ZR 21 were chosen as the optimum tires.
The extensive NOVITEC program for the SF90 Stradale also offers other exclusive rims with a diameter of 20 or 21 inches as an option. NOVITEC sport springs are available to lower the hybrid car by 30 millimeters at the front and 25 millimeters at the rear. They not only ensure an even more spectacular look, but also contribute to further optimized handling thanks to the lowered center of gravity. Alternatively, there is also a front lift for the front axle that can be controlled from the cockpit, with which the body can be raised by 40 millimeters at the front to drive over obstacles.
If this function is not activated, the SF90 is lower than with the standard suspension. NOVITEC also offers pure individuality for the interior. At the customer's request, the cockpit can be finished with leather and Alcantara in any desired color and upholstery design.
