Making a sports car like the Ferrari F8 Tributo even faster and more exclusive is NOVITEC's domain. With a complete refinement program, the German automobile finisher fulfills the wishes of the owners of the Italian two-seater. NOVITEC offers different power levels for the 3,9 liter eight-cylinder biturbo engine up to 590 kW / 802 PS peak power and 898 Nm torque. This catapults the mid-engined car to 2,6 km / h in just 100 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 340 km / h. The product range does not only include powerful engine tuning and high-performance exhaust systems in different versions: the body is individualized with excitingly styled and aerodynamically efficient carbon fiber components.
NOVITEC Ferrari F8 Tributo
The NOVITEC look is completed with tailor-made high-tech forged wheels up to 22 inches in diameter on the rear axle, which were developed in cooperation with the American premium manufacturer Vossen. The NOVITEC sport springs are matched to this. Of course, the interior of the Ferrari can also be tailored exactly to the taste of the vehicle owner. The 3,9 liter eight-cylinder with two turbochargers in the F8 Tributo offers an excellent starting point for powerful tuning. The NOVITEC engine technicians developed several performance kits for this engine, which awaken the reserves hidden in this engine without affecting the stability. In a complex series of tests, special maps were developed for the two NOVITEC N-TRONIC modules, which are adapted to the vehicle's electronic engine management using the plug & play process.
802 PS and 898 Nm torque
In the most powerful variant, which also includes a NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system, the peak output increases from the standard 530 kW / 720 PS to 590 kW / 802 PS at 7 rpm. At the same time, the maximum torque increases to 950 Nm. After just 898 seconds, the tuned two-seater is already 2,6 km / h fast. The top speed increases to over 100 km / h. On the road, the NOVITEC performance increase is not only noticeable through the improved driving performance, but also through an even more direct response and an even more powerful pulling behavior.
with NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system
Even without engine tuning, a NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system is an investment in more driving fun: The exhaust system is available in different versions, including particularly light INCONEL variants, with or without electronic sound management. All variants are completely thermally insulated in order to optimize the temperature balance in the engine compartment. The NOVITEC INCONEL sports exhaust, which is also coated with 999 fine gold, is not only visually particularly attractive: it can dissipate the heat even better. Two large tailpipes in a combination of carbon and stainless steel emphasize the racing look of the NOVITEC conversion. The range also includes 100-cell sports catalytic converters, which are also thermally insulated and can also be ordered with a fine gold coating on request.
especially chic as a carbon fiber version
Carbon is not only the first choice in Formula 1, but also in the NOVITEC aerodynamic components for the Ferrari F8 Tributo. All parts are optionally available in a carbon fiber version with a high-gloss coating. The designers not only attached importance to an exciting look, but above all to aerodynamic efficiency. The face of the mid-engine athlete is profiled even more strikingly with an extensive NOVITEC upgrade: a two-part front spoiler and flaps are attached to the side air inlets on the bumper to further reduce lift at high speeds. The NOVITEC carbon cover for the wide air inlet in the front gives the sports car a look that is reminiscent of the front spoiler of a Formula 1 racing car. An insert for the front hood made of the same composite material rounds off the decidedly sporty look.
In order to give the two-door model an even sportier appearance from the side and to channel the air flow on the sides even more precisely, there are NOVITEC side skirts. Discreet carbon covers for the side mirrors, together with the NOVITEC air control elements in the side air inlets, add further sporty accents. The rear end is visually dominated by the large rear wing, which significantly increases the downforce on the rear axle at high speeds. Alternatively, there is also a subtle rear spoiler lip. The rear apron can be upgraded with various NOVITEC aerodynamic components. The standard diffuser can be upgraded with a cover, air outlets and fins made of carbon. Another detail is a carbon fiber cover for vehicles with a reversing camera. Optionally, there is also a complete NOVITEC diffuser that is integrated into the standard bumper. In addition, the bonnet can be upgraded with a carbon fiber panel.
The look of the vehicle is of course also decisively influenced by the wheels: NOVITEC designed various forged wheels especially for the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Vossen, the American producer of high-end alloy wheels, was won over as a partner for development and production. In order to reinforce the wedge shape of the two-seater, rims with an inch larger diameter than the front are used on the rear axle. All NOVITEC wheels not only impress with their lightweight and robust construction, they can also be individually adapted to the needs of the vehicle owner. 72 different color variants are just as possible as brushed or polished surfaces. As a top-of-the-line variant for the sports car from Maranello, there are NOVITEC NF10 forged wheels with five filigree double spokes and a central locking look in the combination of 9Jx21 on the front and 12Jx22 on the rear axle. They are fitted with high-performance tires in the dimensions 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22.
including 35 millimeters lowering
The spectacular look of the refined Ferrari is completed by NOVITEC sport springs, which lower the vehicle approx. 35 millimeters. Handling, which is even more direct, also benefits from the lowered center of gravity. The lowering springs can be installed on all vehicles, with or without a front lift system. NOVITEC also offers its own system that raises the front by approx. 40 millimeters at the push of a button in the cockpit, for example if a ramp in a parking garage or a speed bumper in city traffic has to be overcome. NOVITEC also offers individuality down to the last corner for the cockpit. The range offers countless options up to an exclusive interior, which can be tailored to the wishes of the vehicle owner in any desired color and upholstery design in the finest leather and Alcantara.
