German tuner Novitec has launched a customization program aimed at the opulent Ferrari Monza SP1 speedster series. The single-seater wound up with quite a few mods both aesthetic and technical.

The team wisely chose to keep the body aerodynamics largely intact while swapping the stock wheels out for Vossen forged rims sized 21” at the front and 22” in the back. The suspension height dropped by 35 mm (1.4”), and the exhaust system was replaced with a high-performance unit made from Inconel, an alloy actively used in Formula One. Novitec says the exhaust comes with an optional active valve for fine-tuning its sound.

Even in its most basic form, the Monza SP1 packs the Italian marque’s most powerful naturally aspirated V12 ever, capable of 800 PS (789 hp / 588 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. The tuner still managed to squeeze an extra bit of juice out of it, raising the numbers to 833 PS (821 hp / 613 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft). This shaved one-tenth of a second off the 0-60 mph sprint time (now: 2.8s) and pushed the speed ceiling to above 300 km/h (186 mph).

Last but not least, Monza owners are invited to order a bespoke interior makeover using the best trimming materials available.
