Novitec Rosso N-Largo S Ferrari F12berlinetta
A football team has eleven players and NOVITEC ROSSO, the leading refinement specialist for the cars from the luxury brand Ferrari, now builds the same number of the exclusive NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S high-performance sports car in a select limited edition.
This spectacular car is based on the Ferrari F12berlinetta. The 6.3-liter 12-cylinder engine undergoes a performance upgrade to 574 kW / 781 HP, which boosts top speed to 350 km/h.
The car’s looks are just as extraordinary as its performance capability: The spectacular NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S widebody version made from the hi-tech material carbon widens the two-seater to 208 centimeters. In addition, the bodywork conversion impresses above all with its unique combination of motor racing design and aerodynamic efficiency. The newly designed three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF6 NL forged wheels with diameters of 21 and 22 inches match the extraordinary character of the car perfectly.
By customer request, NOVITEC ROSSO also offers the N-LARGO S with a cockpit fully redesigned to the owner’s preferences in any desired color and with the highest quality of workmanship. The design of the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S widebody version was developed in cooperation with German designer Vittorio Strosek, who has specialized in the equally spectacular and aerodynamically efficient refinement of the world’s most exclusive sports cars for more than three decades. The N-LARGO S is a complete new development and continues the successful line of NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO high-performance sports cars.
The new bodywork conversion for the Ferrari F12berlinetta puts full-blooded motor racing looks on the road. Apart from striking looks, the focus in the development of the especially lightweight yet high-strength carbon components was above all on perfect function. This also involved extensive testing in the wind tunnel.
Immediately apparent at first glance is the wedge shape of the refined sports car that widens from front to rear. While the new front fenders are seven centimeters wider than the production components in all, the width at the rear increases by a whopping 14 centimeters thanks to the flares seamlessly molded to the production body. This also creates space for extra-large wheels.
The new NF6 NL wheels were developed specifically for the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S. Their delicate design with five double spokes and their manufacturing process using hi-tech forging technology make these wheels especially lightweight yet enormously robust. The alloy wheels can be painted any desired color and come in a version featuring carbon-coated outer flanges as well. The staggered wheels of sizes 9.5Jx21 for the front axle and 12Jx22 at the rear further emphasizes the vehicle’s wedge shape. Pirelli supplies the perfect high-performance tires in form of P ZERO tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22.
The revised suspension with NOVITEC ROSSO sport springs lowers the ride height by about 40 millimeters and is specifically calibrated for use with these tires. To make this fast car as much suitable for daily use as possible, there also is an optional lift system for the front axle. The hydraulic height adjustment raises the front axle by about 40 millimeters at the touch of a button in the cockpit. This makes it easier to navigate parking garage ramps or speed humps in residential areas. The suspension reverts to the original operating position at a second touch of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.
However, the preferred habitat of the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S is of course a winding road, the autobahn or the racetrack. At the high speeds driven there, aerodynamic efficiency plays an extremely important role. To this end, NOVITEC ROSSO developed special front and rear bumpers that replace the production components.
The front bumper and the central front blade, which is optionally available with a naked carbon finish, are shaped to lend the two-seater a markedly aggressive front. In addition, the central air intake optimizes the supply of cooling air for the radiators while the openings on the side direct the relative wind to the front brakes. The shape, which was optimized in the wind tunnel, also and above all reduces lift on the front axle, which further optimizes handling stability at high speeds.
The aerodynamic fine-tuning continues on the hood: The air outlet is fitted with a naked carbon cover that directs the relative wind straight over the roof and thus improves venting the air heated by the radiators from the engine bay. In addition, NOVITEC ROSSO developed special naked carbon air deflectors for the air intakes on either side in front of the windshield.
Strikingly styled rocker panels, which like all NOVITEC ROSSO naked carbon components come with a choice of matte or high-gloss coating, guarantee optimal routing of the air between the wider front and rear fenders. The meticulous attention to detail is also evident in the carbon covers for the two side mirrors.
Of course, the rear end of the vehicle is revised as well. To match the upward sweeping ends of the rear fender flares that also extend farther back, the center of the rear end is also extended with a carbon component invisibly mounted to the production bodywork. As an aerodynamically extremely efficient complement to this separation edge, NOVITEC ROSSO also installs a roof spoiler lip and a carbon rear airfoil, whose shape and angle of attack was optimized in the wind tunnel.
The N-LARGO S rear bumper captivates with its three gill-shaped vents on either side aft of the wheel wells. They cite iconic examples of sports car history. The five-piece diffusor is not only an indispensable part of the aerodynamics concept, but like the central rear fog lamp also plays a crucial role in the striking racing looks – especially the naked carbon version. The black tinted NOVITEC ROSSO tail lamps and side repeaters round out the athletic overall appearance.
It goes without saying that the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S is not just a super sports car in a class of its own when it comes to looks: The NOVITEC ROSSO technicians developed a performance kit that boosts peak power of the 6.3-liter four-valve 12-cylinder engine to 574 kW / 781 HP at 8,600 rpm. At the same time, peak torque grows to 722 Nm at 6,400 rpm.
The performance upgrade comes courtesy of new mapping for injection and ignition as well as the installed NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance quad exhaust. This exhaust system optimizes the engine’s power delivery and lends the V12 an even more exciting acoustic accompaniment. Customers can opt for a variant with variable sound management via a system of butterfly valves remotely controlled from the cockpit. Apart from the stainless-steel version, the exhaust is also available made from INCONEL, a hi-tech material that offers weight savings of eleven kilograms compared with the production exhaust.
The performance of the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO S, whose gears can be shifted even more precisely manually thanks to redesigned carbon paddle shifters on the steering wheel, is correspondingly outstanding: The two-seater accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in about 3.0 seconds, reaching twice that speed just five seconds later. Thanks to the raised cutoff speed, the top speed increases to 350 km/h.
NOVITEC ROSSO also customizes the interior to individual customer preferences if desired. The cockpit can be remodeled with utmost precision with leather, Alcantara and carbon in any desired color.
