The changes made by Novitec look as good as if they were carried out at the factory.
Lamborghini may have just taken the wraps off its new V12-powered supercar but German tuner Novitec is still hard at work on the Revuelto's predecessor and has furnished an Aventador Ultimae Roadster with an assortment of upgrades to make it look and sound angrier.
As standard, the 6.5-liter V12 engine in the Aventador Ultimae produces 769 horsepower, and Novitec clearly thinks that's more than enough because the engine has been left untouched, unusual for the tuner. But when it comes to the way that power unit sounds, Novitec felt it could add a little something extra and fitted an adaptive sports exhaust made from stainless steel, saving nearly 42 pounds of weight in the process.
The supercar has also been enhanced with sports springs that lower the car by 35 millimeters for better handling, with the drop made more attractive thanks to a staggered set of wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter up front and 21 inches at the rear. These NL4 wheels are made by Vossen and boast center-locking fasteners and can be had in a choice of 72 colors, with the finish available as brushed or polished.
Now for the carbon fiber, of which there is plenty. At the front, new spoilers add menace, one of which sits above the intakes and one of which is sited below them. Similarly, the side intakes get tailor-made surrounds that Novitec says help direct air toward the front brakes.
Novitec also tested its other add-ons in the wind tunnel, and the new frunk lid promises a reduction in front-axle lift at high speeds. The larger vents, however, are there simply because they look good. Down the side, the rocker panels, side window intakes, and rear quarter intakes are all sculpted to increase airflow, while the rear of the car can be enhanced with a rear wing, of which there are two designs on offer. All of these body parts come in carbon fiber and are available for both the coupe and the drop-top versions. The cabin of your Aventador Ultimae can also be modified to your taste, but as for what it will cost to undertake any of these upgrades, we have no clue. That said, we'd bet on a six-figure bill for the full conversion.
