The McLaren 720S Spider is one of the most powerful open sports cars on the market. The technicians and designers of NOVITEC developed a wide-ranging individual program that further enhances the talents of this two-seater. These include tailor-made aerodynamic components that have not only been fine-tuned in the wind tunnel, but also produced from innovative Forged Carbon composite material that gives the carbon parts a new look. The NOVITEC high-tech forged wheels also make a further important contribution to the extravagant appearance. With their combination of 20 and 21 front and rear wheels, they emphasize the wedge shape together with the sport springs even more. The V8 biturbo is also in the focus of the work: performance increases in three different levels help the 720S Spider to maximum 592 kW / 806 PS peak performance and up to 878 Nm torque.
2,7 seconds on Tempo 100
Thus the open bolide catapults from the state in only 2,7 seconds on Tempo 100. The maximum speed increases to 346 km / h. The matching fascinating sound is provided by the NOVITEC RACE high-performance exhaust systems, which are available in various versions. In addition, the German tuner offers countless options to make the cockpit of the McLaren even more exclusive. The NOVITEC designers have had only one mission for decades: to make the most exclusive automobiles even more fascinating and to further optimize their aerodynamic efficiency. For the 720S with retractable hardtop, they have developed visible carbon components, which are manufactured in Forged Carbon. Not only does this carbon fiber compound have a distinct look that is very different from the usual carbon fiber structures, but it also offers an outstanding combination of light weight and strength.
Carbon aerodynamic parts all around
The face of the 720S Spider receives a striking facelift at NOVITEC: the series bumpers are complemented with front spoiler, front sash and side front flaps, which reduce lift on the front axle at high speeds. The exciting front view is complemented by the NOVITEC Forged Carbon inserts for the front headlights, the N-LARGO boot lid and the Forged Carbon housing for the side mirrors. The side sections of the 720S Spider are upgraded with the NOVITEC carbon entrances, which consistently continue the racing look. The new coverings for the side air intakes on both sides of the vehicle also belong to the aerodynamic refinement à la NOVITEC. They direct the airflow more specifically into the ventilation openings behind the two doors, which supply the engine with fresh air and breathing air. The rear end is visually dominated by the NOVITEC rear wing, which further enhances the aerodynamic downforce. Alternatively, there is also a discreetly designed rear spoiler lip.
Forged wheels from Vossen Wheels
Other racing accents are set at the rear by elaborate Forged Carbon elements such as rear apron, diffuser and diffuser. The NOVITEC optics package is completed by side carbon covers for the rear apron. Equally elemental to the exciting NOVITEC look for the open McLaren are the high-tech wheels, which are manufactured by the American high-end manufacturer Vossen exclusively for NOVITEC. They are mounted in a combination of 20 and 21 inch large wheels on the front and rear axles, which visually emphasize the wedge shape of the mid-engine sports car due to their different diameters. With seven filigree twin spokes and state-of-the-art forging technology, these wheels are extremely light-weighted with their centralized king size dials. The MC3 wheels are available in 72 different color options, optionally also with brushed or polished surface. The 8.5Jx20 front wheels with Pirelli P-Zero 255 / 30 ZR 20 high-performance tires use the space in the fenders just as consistently as the 12Jx21 rims on the rear axle, which are fitted with 325 / 25 ZR 21 tires. Alternatively, there are NOVITEC MC720 forged wheels with five spoke pairs for the McLaren 1S models.
NOVITEC suspension springs for lowering
In addition to a further plus for the look of the spider by lowering it by approx. 30 millimeters, the NOVITEC sport springs also make handling even more direct. This means that the open-top McLaren is perfectly equipped for even more performance. The 4,0 liter eight-cylinder with two turbochargers provides an excellent basis for powerful tuning. The engine technicians developed three different performance kits for the 720S, all of which are based on the NOVITEC N-TRONIC additional control unit, which is adapted to the vehicle's electronic engine management using the plug & play process and which feeds in new maps for injection, ignition and boost pressure control. In the strongest performance level 2, which also includes a NOVITEC RACE high-performance exhaust system, 63 kW / 86 PS more peak power and a maximum torque of 108 Nm higher are achieved. The turbocharged V8 with NOVITEC tuning therefore delivers an impressive 592 kW / 806 hp at just 6 rpm and produces a maximum torque of 700 Nm at 6 tours. Of course, the driving performance also benefits from this: After just 300 seconds, the tuned 878S Spider is already 2,7 km / h fast. A speed of 720 is reached just 100 seconds after the start.
Top speed -> crazy 346 km / h
The maximum speed increases to 346 km / h. On the road, the NOVITEC performance increase is not only noticeable by the further improved performance, but also by an even more direct response and an even more powerful pulling power. Even without engine tuning, every McLaren 720S recommends installing a NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system. The exhaust system with two 95 millimeter tailpipes, optionally in polished stainless steel or matt black, is completely heat-insulated in favor of a reduced temperature development in the engine compartment and is available with or without flap control. The sport exhaust is made either of stainless steel or the even lighter, used in the formula 1 and aerospace INCONEL. In addition, the program includes lighter and more efficient sports catalysts. NOVITEC also offers refinement in the highest individuality and quality for the cockpit of all McLaren sports cars. Finest leather and Alcantara in practically unlimited color variety are processed exactly according to the wishes of the vehicle owner.
