For decades, the Novitec designers have had a wealth of knowledge and a delicate touch when it comes to making the world’s most exciting sports cars even more thrilling. At the same time, aerodynamic efficiency is a top priority.
The new bodywork conversion for the Ferrari F8 Spider is the latest example of Novitec once more consistently following this philosophy. The material of choice is carbon. The precise-fit components can be painted in body color or can be ordered in a naked-carbon version with high-gloss coating.
The Novitec engine specialists developed various performance upgrades for the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with outputs of up to 590 kW / 802 hp, which sling the two-seater to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds on the way to a new top speed of over 340 km/h. The Novitec range also features high-performance exhaust systems in various variants including the superlight INCONEL version with 999 fine-gold plating, sports springs and a hydraulic front lift system as well as exclusive cockpit refinement options.
The face of the powerful mid-engine sports car is visually enhanced with a two-piece front spoiler. What is more: This upgrade also reduces aerodynamic front-axle lift, which optimizes the handling stability at high speeds.
The Novitec carbon insert for the front fascia borrows from the winged look of current Formula 1 racecars. Carbon flaps on both sides of the bumper direct the airflow even more precisely into the cooling air intakes.
Further racing-look upgrades are the Novitec insert for the hood, the panel in front of the windshield as well as the door handles and the Novitec side mirrors, whose design is likewise modelled after modern Grand Prix racecars.
The Novitec rocker panels give the sports car with folding hardtop a lower and sleeker visual stance. Carbon inserts for the air intakes behind the doors direct the airflow even more specifically to the radiators and air filters. The German refinement specialist also gives the rear of the F8 Spider an even sportier touch with an understated carbon spoiler lip.
Alternatively, Novitec offers a larger rear spoiler in ducktail design or a rear wing for this Ferrari. There are also various upgrades available for the rear fascia such as naked-carbon trim for the production diffuser and as an option a complete carbon-fiber Novitec diffuser with redesigned fins.
Vehicles equipped ex-factory with a backup camera can be enhanced with a carbon surround for this useful feature. There is pure racing look to admire from the bird’s-eye view as well: Novitec offers the engine cover with integrated ventilation slots as well as the panel that sits behind it also in a naked-carbon version. Wheels designed specifically for the Ferrari F8 round off the unusual Novitec design.
Novitec developed tailor-made tire/wheel combinations also for the Spider in cooperation Vossen, the American specialist for hi-tech forged rims. To add even more emphasis to the wedge shape of the two-seater, the rear axle uses wheels with a diameter one inch larger than at the front.
The vehicle pictured here is fitted with the Novitec NF10 design featuring five filigree twin-spokes and a hub cover in center-lock look. Novitec selected “Satin Bronze” from the wide range of available Vossen colors in order to add stark contrast to the black paint finish and the carbon components. Thanks to the use of hi-tech forging and machining technology, these rims are very light despite offering maximum strength and their large dimensions of 9Jx21 at the front and 12Jx22 on the rear axle.
Novitec offers exclusive refinement options for the interior of the F8 Spider as well. Leather/Alcantara appointments tailored to the customer’s individual wishes in every detail can be crafted from materials of the highest quality in any color imaginable.
