Novitec is a world famous Ferrari tuner with several performance tuning packages for the Ferrari F430. To celebrate their 20th anniversary they have created their own supercar called the Novitec TuLesto and is based on the Ferrari F430, a car they have a tonne of experience tuning.


Novitec made some noise with their Novitec Tu Nero F430 with 707 bhp and was presented at the IAA. It was built for Darth Vader and featured matte black paint and sported twin superchargers. The same car was later seen in the guise of the Novitec Ferrari F430 RACE that had the same power and could do 348 km/h! Novitec finally laid their hands on the most exclusive race bred F430, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The Novitec 430 Scuderia made 717 bhp and features similar performance to the cars above.

The Novitec Tulesto features heavy visual modifications but the shape is still very much a Ferrari F430. The Ferrari F430 is an extremely well built supercar to begin with so lets see how the Tulesto differs from the original. The Tulesto features a bored out 4.4L V8 (up 100cc from 4.3L) with twin superchargers which deliver an Enzo busting 777 bhp @ 8,200 rpm and 536 lb-ft @ 6,300 rpm! The entire car is made of lightweight aluminum and carbon fibre that can get it from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 3.4 sec flat with a top speed of 350 km/h. A 6-speed semi-automatic paddle shift is the sole transmission option.




While it is very similar to the F430 to look at, a closer look reveals that all the panels are completely different. Each has that little bit more in terms of cuts and lines. The front fenders for example sport new vents and there are also all new wing mirrors. The vent on the roof is new that flows into a completely new rear end. The rims are slick and look very race ready in black with red piping and house the massive ceramic brakes with 6-piston brakes.

While this is more of a track car than a daily driver, it does get some sensibility for that occasional trip to the city. You get an on demand push buttom adjustment system to lift the nose by 4 inches for tackling speed bumps and driveways. It also gets fully adjustable double wishbone suspension with adjustable dampers and sway bars in case you want some serious tweaking to shave your track times.

If you are interested in buying one, you better be quick as only 11 will ever be made each probably costing a fortune. So get your AMEX BLACK CARD ready for a swipe.

PRESS RELEASE

The World’s Most Exclusive High-End Sports Car:

The NOVITEC TuLesto with 777 hp and a Top Speed of More than 350 km/h. There are many fascinating automobiles money can buy but its spectacular design, its uncompromising high-performance concept and its limited edition of just eleven cars make the new NOVITEC TuLesto the most exclusive high-end sports car in the world.

The mid-engine racer is 204 centimeters wide and weighs in at just 1,260 kilograms. It is built by German automobile manufacturer NOVITEC in Stetten in Bavaria. At the heart of the two-seater is a V8 engine with dual superchargers and a rated power output of 777 hp / 571.8 kW. Thanks to its carbon fiber and aluminum construction the coupe has an excellent power-to-weight ratio of just 1.62 kg/hp. The result is driving performance that only very few super sports cars can match: The sprint from rest to 100 km/h takes less than 3.4 seconds, and the NOVITEC TuLesto reaches 300 km/h after just 22.6 seconds. Top speed is more than 350 km/h.

The new high-end sports car represents NOVITEC’s first proprietary car and marks the company’s 20th anniversary. “With the NOVITEC TuLesto we transform our collective know-how from two decades of automobile tuning into an uncompromising high-performance sports car for eleven of our long-time customers from around the world,” says NOVITEC managing director Wolfgang Hagedorn. “The TuLesto offers an optimal symbiosis of exceptional driving dynamics and exciting yet aerodynamically efficient styling.”

Light-weight construction was one of the main goals from the very start of the project. The designers’ materials of choice are normally found in racecars. The chassis and the integrated safety cell are made entirely from aluminum, making them extremely light while at the same time giving them extraordinary rigidity.

The striking design of the sports car is the result of a cooperation between NOVITEC and the Italian design studio Luca Serafini Stile in Modena. The unmistakable shape of the TuLesto was created using state-of-the-art CAD and CFD technologies, further augmented by the use of the wind tunnel. The TuLesto is 462 centimeters long, 204 centimeters wide and has a height of 122 centimeters.

The spectacular curves of the fenders, the front apron, the shape of the rear and the smooth underbody with integrated venturi tunnel and diffuser were calibrated in the wind tunnel to create an optimal aerodynamic balance.

For perfect weight distribution the NOVITEC TuLesto was designed with a classic mid-engine layout. The 4.4-liter four-valve V8 engine with dual superchargers is installed directly behind the cockpit. The high-tech engine produces a maximum power output of 777 hp / 571.8 kW at 8,200 rpm and a peak torque of 727 Nm at 6,300 rpm.

Motorsports was also the inspiration for the power transfer: The six gears of the semi-automatic gearbox with integrated anti-slip differential are shifted with carbon-fiber paddles behind the steering wheel. An adjustable traction control system with launch control for perfect starts guarantees maximum driving safety on the road and on the track.

The NOVITEC engineers and technicians also used racing technology on the suspension: As in GT-series racing, the TuLesto features double-wishbone suspension front and rear, height-adjustable struts with various selectable damping rates, and adjustable sway bars. For easy negotiating of underground parking ramps or similar obstacles the TuLesto front can be raised four centimeters at the push of a button. The anti-lock braking system features ceramic composite discs and six-piston fixed calipers front and back for maximum stopping power and endurance.

Another elementary contribution to the superior driving dynamics of the NOVITEC TuLesto comes from its ultra-light light-alloy wheels with diameters of 20 or 21 inches. These wheels were custom-developed for this coupe and are fitted with semi slicks up to 355 millimeters wide on the rear axle.

The interior design has a decidedly sporty nature but also offers creature comforts such as a climate-control system and a high-end sound system. Lightweight carbon fiber plays a dominating role in the interior as well: It is used for dashboard, center console and door trim as well as for the bucket seats which will be custom-fitted in form, shape, size, color and upholstery to each of the eleven future owners.
