Novitec tunes the Ferrari SF90 Spider to deliver unmatched performance

The renowned refinement specialists rose to the challenge of enabling a modern super sports car with a plug-in hybrid drive to deliver even better performance on the road. Share

From a system output of 816 kW/1,109 hp, zero to 100 km/h in just 2.4 seconds, efficient aerodynamics and spectacular looks, NOVITEC once more underpins its status as the world’s leading automotive refinement specialist for the great sports cars from Maranello with the Ferrari SF90 Spider.

The engine specialists developed special maps for the electronic management system of the four-litre, twin-turbo combustion engine. In addition, they created a high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts. This combination realizes an output increase of 80 kW/109 hp. In conjunction with the three electric motors, the result is a massive system output of 816 kW/1,109 hp.

Consequently, the drop-top two-seater accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in a mere 2.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of more than 340 km/h. In concert with the 21-inch alloys developed together with Vossen, the NOVITEC carbon upgrade for the bodywork gives the mid-engined sports car even more spectacular looks.

A sports car famously can never have an excess of power and thus NOVITEC also developed a performance upgrade for the Ferrari SF90 Spider with a plug-in hybrid drive. The work focused on the V8 with two turbochargers. New maps for injection, ignition and the electronic boost pressure control were developed in complex testing. They are introduced into the engine management system of the two-seater by a NOVITEC N-TRONIC module for each cylinder bank.

High-temperature insulation lowers the temperatures in the engine bay, which likewise contributes to improved engine performance. The versions with 999 fine gold plating dissipate the heat particularly efficiently and are of course also very attractive to look at. During the design and tuning of the system, the focus naturally also was on a thrilling exhaust note. Owners of an SF90 can choose between variants with and without electronic sound management by means of actively controlled butterfly valves.

To give the rear appearance a further upgrade as well, NOVITEC also offers 112mm tailpipes with carbon embellishers. The combination of all NOVITEC high-performance components bumps peak output of the combustion engine by 80 kW / 109 hp and peak torque by 118 Nm. The three electric motors plus the tuned combustion engine’s 654 kW / 889 hp at 7,300 rpm add up to a system output of 816 kW/1,109 hp.

As a result, the NOVITEC-tuned hybrid sports car accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in a mere 2.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. The top speed increases to more than 340 km/h. At these speeds, aerodynamics play a crucial role. That is why the NOVITEC designers went into the wind tunnel to develop spoilers that further optimize the handling stability.

All parts are made from naked carbon, which lends the Ferrari full-blooded racing looks to boot. The central NOVITEC spoiler and the detachable side sections on the front fascia produce additional downforce at high speeds. The carbon flaps, which route the airflow past the front wheel arches, add the streamlining finishing touches. The ducktail spoiler and the diffuser at the rear ensure outstanding aerodynamic balance.

Carbon fiber from the NOVITEC Manufaktur hand-finish production shop adds further spectacular highlights to the SF90 Spider. The front hood can be upgraded visually with two surrounds for the lower air outlet and a cover for the windshield. The NOVITEC Race fenders and their air outlets in the top give the sports car undiluted racing looks and vent the air heated by the front brakes faster from the wheel wells.
