Making a sports car like the Ferrari F8 Tributo even faster and more exclusive is the domain of NOVITEC. The German automotive refinement specialist fulfills the wishes of the owners of the Italian two-seater with a complete refinement range.
The 3.9-liter eight-cylinder with two turbochargers in the F8 Tributo offers an excellent starting point for powerful tuning. The NOVITEC engine specialists devised several performance kits for this powerplant that unleash the reserves hidden in this engine without impairing its durability. They also developed special mapping for the two plug-and-play NOVITEC N-TRONIC modules in complex test series. These modules are adapted to the vehicle's electronic engine control system.
The most powerful variant, which includes a NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system, increases peak output from stock 720 hp to 802 hp at 7,950 rpm. At the same time, peak torque grows to 898 Nm. The tuned two-seater hits 100 km/h after just 2.6 seconds. The top speed increases to over 340 km/h.
Even without engine tuning, a NOVITEC high-performance exhaust system is an investment in more driving fun. The exhaust system comes in various versions, including particularly lightweight INCONEL variants, optionally with or without electronic sound management. All variants are fully thermally insulated to optimize the temperature control in the engine bay. The NOVITEC INCONEL sport exhaust, which additionally is plated with 999 gold, not only looks great, it also dissipates heat even better. Two large tailpipes featuring a combination of carbon and stainless steel emphasize the racing looks of the NOVITEC conversion. The range also includes 100-cell sports catalysts, which are likewise thermally insulated and can optionally be ordered with 999 gold plating.
Carbon is the first choice not only in Formula 1 racing, but also when it comes to the NOVITEC aerodynamic-enhancement components for the Ferrari F8 Tributo. All parts are optionally available in a naked-carbon variant with a high-gloss clear coat.
In the process, the designers stressed not only exciting looks, but above all aerodynamic efficiency. The front of the mid-engine sports car gets an even more striking profile with an extensive NOVITEC upgrade. To this end, a two-piece front spoiler and flaps on the side air intakes are fitted to the bumper for a further reduction of lift at high speeds. The NOVITEC carbon trim for the wide air intake at 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.
The NOVITEC rocker panels give the two-door car an even sportier appearance from the sides as well and channel the airflow with even more precision. Tasteful carbon trim for the side mirrors, together with the NOVITEC air deflectors in the side air intakes, add further sporty touches.
The large rear wing, which significantly increases rear-axle downforce at high speeds, dominates the rear end visually. Alternatively, there is also an understated rear spoiler lip. The rear fascia can be upgraded with various NOVITEC aerodynamic-enhancement components. For example, the production diffuser can be enhanced with a cover, air outlets and fins made of carbon. Another detail is a carbon fiber trim piece for vehicles with a rearview camera. Optionally, there is also a complete NOVITEC diffuser, which is integrated into the production bumper. In addition, the hood can be refined with naked-carbon trim.
