Refinement is the name of the game for Germany’s NOVITEC, which places its custom touch on a number of high priced vehicles. For instance, the company’s latest project is the McLaren 570S Spider, which features new naked carbon, light forged wheels with 20- and 21-inch diameters and a performance upgrade to 646 horsepower and 510 ft-lb of torque.
As a result, NOVITEC refines the McLaren 570S Spider not just visually, but also gives the two-seater even better performance on the road: The sprint time to 62 mph is shortened to just 3 seconds. The top speed increases to 208 mph.
Also part of the product range, NOVITEC RACE offers high-performance exhaust systems in different versions, sport springs, and countless options for making the interior of the British sports car even more exclusive.
Giving a sports car such as the McLaren 570S Spider an even more thrilling design is the specialty of the NOVITEC designers. They adapted the naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components initially developed for the 570S Coupe models to the open-top two-seater, according to the company.
The NOVITEC front spoiler lends the 570S Spider an even more distinctive and athletic front. The refined looks are accompanied by maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The shape of the carbon component was optimized in the wind tunnel to reduce front-axle lift at high speeds, according to the company.
The NOVITEC rear spoiler was designed to elevate the handling stability even further. Its contours were adapted precisely to the sweeping rear end of the vehicle.
NOVITEC carbon rocker panels, which lend the British sports car a longer and lower visual stance, upgrade the sides of the 570S Spider. In addition, the transition between the front and rear wheel arches now looks even more homogeneous, according to the company. The aerodynamic finishing touches Ã la NOVITEC also include carbon covers that were tailored-made for the air intakes on both sides of the vehicle. They route the air even more precisely into the air intakes behind the two doors, which supply the engine with combustion and cooling air.
The sporty NOVITEC appearance package is rounded out by carbon covers for the sides of the rear bumper.
The NOVITEC engine specialists developed three different performance kits for the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that powers all versions of the 570 model series. The special feature of this engine tuning is that the driver is able to activate or deactivate it at any time on the ‘Active Dynamic Panel.’ When needed, the two plug-and-play NOVITEC N-TRONIC modules adapted to the electronic engine control unit of the vehicle provide injection, ignition and boost pressure control with new mapping in a matter of seconds.
