Novitec sets about tuning the Ferrari SF90
Working with the formidable Ferrari SF90 would not be new territory for Novitec, which has only recently concluded work on the F8 Tributo, but it will be exciting to see, nonetheless.
In its factory guise, the SF90 packs a transaxle V8 TT and a trio of electric motors joining efforts for 1,000 PS (986 hp / 735 kW). Tweaking the extremely sophisticated hybrid drivetrain is no easy task, so Novitec reduces its interference here to swapping in some top-tier catalytic converters and exhaust system. As a result, the output is said to rise by another 33 PS (33 hp / 24 kW).
The torque goes up 58 Nm (43 lb-ft) to 858 Nm (633 lb-ft) total. The car still needs 2.5 seconds to launch 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph), but it now has the potential to surpass its OEM-rated top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).
No major exterior modifications have been made so far, unless you count a set of 10-spoke Vossen NS 10 forged wheels finished in dull bronze. The rims measure 20 inches across front and 21 inches rear.
According to Novitec, the project is far from complete, so we should probably be looking forward to numerous other upgrades outside, inside, and under the hood.
