700-horsepower Ferrari super wagon, anyone?
Having put every modern Ferrari under the knife, including this masterful interpretation of the 488 GTB, it was only a matter of time before German tuning house Novitec Rosso turned its attention to the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. Similar to the work done on the Ferrari FF, Novitec has created a comprehensive upgrade program for the supercar wagon and the results are typically impressive. The 2+2-seater not only looks better thanks to a new bodykit, but fine-tuning in the wind tunnel has ensured it’s been aerodynamically upgraded too.
Up front, a pair of spoilers that flank the bumper combined with a central front blade give the Shooting Brake a distinctive new face while reducing lift at high speeds. Rocker panels adds some muscle to the car’s profile and calms the airflow between the front and rear wheel arches. The sleek new side view is afforded even more style courtesy of some carbon covers for the side mirrors and a set of bespoke five double-spoke NF4 alloys, staggered 21/22 inches front/rear. Novitec claim the wheels “are among the lightest of their sizes in the world” helping to give the car even more dynamic handling, and come wrapped in high-performance rubber.
Alternatively, buyers can opt for NF7 alloys that can be optioned with carbon outer flanges to complement the new body work. At the back, Novitec created roof-mounted and rear spoilers that work with a new rear diffuser to add some visual drama and optimize aeros. A set of sport springs drops the Ferrari by up to 35 mm, giving it a meaner stance and a lower center of gravity, enhancing the car’s agile handling. In terms of performance upgrades, Novitec has focused on the GTC4Lusso T, creating three performance kits for the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. The most powerful of these bumps output by 99 horsepower and 90 lb-ft of torque to 709 hp and 651 lb-ft of torque.
The result is a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of in excess of 202 mph. Novitec claims these performance upgrades provide the Prancing Horse with more immediate throttle response and more powerful in-gear acceleration. Complementing the remapped ECU is a Inconel exhaust system that produces a sportier exhaust note, optimizes power delivery and helps shed some 11 kg of the GTC4Lusso’s curb weight. A totally custom interior finished in any shade of leather and Alcantara rounds off the aftermarket treatment, with prices for the various upgrades available upon request.
