Forged rims, carbon fiber and 800 HP: Novitec presents the Ferrari F8 Spider
Two years after the launch of the mid-engined Ferrari F8 Spider, Novitec has released a wide range of aftermarket options and accessories for it. The general design direction is the same as with the recently shown F8 Tributo by the same tuner.
Included in the standard package are a two-part front splitter, side flaps, hood overlays, side sills, side air intakes, a new diffuser with enlarged vertical bars, and a lip spoiler. Those willing to take things farther may opt for a larger rear spoiler or a fixed rear wing made of carbon fiber like the rest of the kit. The same material adorns the door handles, the mirror caps, and the hood cover.
The wheels pictured here are Novitec NF10, co-designed with Vossen Wheels and measuring 21 inches front and 22 inches rear. A 35mm (1.4”) reduction in ride height makes sure the supercar remains every bit as maneuverable with its new footwear.
Power is provided by a 3.9-liter V8 normally rated at 720 PS (710 hp / 530 kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque. Novitec uses an external/secondary ECU here to persuade the mill to pump out 802 PS (791 hp / 590 kW) and 898 Nm (662 lb-ft) of torque. Software-tuned like this, the Spider needs 2.6 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) and only 7.8 seconds to reach 200 km/h (124 mph).
