It’s official, Novitec has taken the hand of the Ferrari 812 GTS. Sure, some may look at changes on a Ferrari as sacred, but hear us out here because the German tuner is not a regular wrench that drives a store out of a garage. For the uninitiated, along with upgrading the performance of the vehicles, Novitec is also committed to offering an upgrade in the aesthetics department.
Let’s start with the clear focal point of this car, the 6.5-liter V12 power plant that soars out an astonishing 789 horsepower (588 kilowatts). Thanks to a new exhaust and other various adjustment adjustments, Novitec has unlocked 840 hp (626 kW). If it is not already impressive, customers will also be able to purchase an optional Inconel exhaust system; the same metal used in Formula 1
From the outside, the car is equipped with sports springs that lower the ride height by about 35 millimeters (1.38 inches). In addition to improved handling, Novitec also offers a hydraulic front axle lift system for safety – at the touch of a button, it can raise the front end by approximately four centimeters (1.5 inches).
While the front axle lift is a cool extra, we will be willing not to talk about the Vossen wheels on this car. The special hoops have been developed especially for the 812, and are designed to emphasize the wedge shape of the open two-seater. As an added bonus, the wheels have a center lock hub – similar to what you’d expect on modern race cars.
The vast majority of other components on this car remain untouched outside of any raw carbon fiber components scattered around the outside. Credit to Novitec’s tuning expertise, all the changes add to the existing excitement of the 812 GTS without taking away the exclusivity of the fact that it is still a Ferrari.
