Novitec Rosso Ferrari F12Berlinetta N-Largo
That is the name of a spectacular widebody version for the Ferrari F12berlinetta presented by NOVITEC ROSSO, the leading global refinement specialist for the sports cars from Maranello.
The body conversion kit is manufactured from ultra-light yet ultra-strong carbon fiber, and represents a winning combination of exciting design and aerodynamic efficiency. Also part of the conversion are tailor-made three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF5 NL forged wheels combining 21-inch rims in the front and 22-inch rims on the rear axle. Further features are a revised suspension with front lift function, and a power upgrade to 574 kW / 781 hp, which propels the two-seater to a top speed of about 350 km/h.
Upon customer request NOVITEC ROSSO also customizes the cockpit to the N-LARGO’s owner’s personal preferences down to the last detail.
205 centimeters: with this impressive width the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO widebody version surpasses its original by exactly eleven centimeters on the rear axle. To this end the designers developed strikingly styled fender flares that are seamlessly joined to the production body. The larger wheel arches, for which precise-fit liners were developed, then offer space for the NF5 NL wheels, which were custom-developed for the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO. The three-piece wheels are manufactured using high-tech forging technology. But that’s not all: the widebody version also made it possible to design the wheels with an extremely concave wheel spider and five delicate double spokes. The size 12Jx22 rims are shod with Pirelli P ZERO high-performance tires in size 335/25 ZR 22.
The N-LARGO front fenders create a striking hour-glass-shape effect. They replace the production components in their entirety and add six centimeters to the width of the F12 on the front axle. To create a decidedly wedge-shaped appearance, front wheels in size 9.5Jx21 with an equally concave centerpiece were custom designed for this sports car. Tires in size 255/30 ZR 21 were selected as the perfect option.
The development of the front and rear fender flares not only focused on fascinating looks. A lengthwise slot is integrated into the back of each front fender flare to assist in venting the air heated by the ceramic brakes from the wheel wells as quickly as possible. The rear flares feature large integrated brake cooling ducts that route the relative wind to the deceleration components.
Strikingly styled rocker panels, available with a matt or high-gloss clear-coated carbon-fiber finish or painted in body or contrasting color, ensure a smooth airflow between the N-LARGO fenders on the front and rear axle.
Key factors in the aerodynamic properties and the appearance are of course the fasciae and spoilers of the NOVITEC ROSSO special model. The front and rear fascia, which replace the production bumpers, were not only restyled to match the fender flares.
The shape of front fascia and the central front blade, optionally available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish, lend the two-seater a decidedly aggressive glance. Their styling, which was optimized in the wind tunnel, reduces negative lift and further improves handling stability.
The new carbon-fiber front grille is the perfect complement. The hood receives some added striking highlights with the N-LARGO air scoops on the left- and right-hand side as well as with the central air deflection insert. Carbon-fiber covers for the exterior mirrors provide the finishing touches.
In the rear the combination of five-piece diffuser on the N-LARGO fascia and the large rear airfoil create additional aerodynamic downforce at high speeds. The subtle separation edge on the roof, which like the other aerodynamic-enhancement components is available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish, lends the sports car a full-blooded racing look.
The molding for the central rear fog lamp and the black tinted NOVITEC ROSSO taillights also demonstrate the great love of detail.
To round out the striking appearance of the N-LARGO and to further enhance dynamic handling, NOVITEC ROSSO lowers the ride height of the car by up to 40 millimeters with the help of special sport springs. Steep ramps such as can be found in a parking garage or speed humps can be navigated more easily with the optional front lift system. At the push of a button the hydraulic height adjustment raises the front axle by about 40 millimeters. At a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the ride height reverts to its original position.
To match the spectacular appearance, the NOVITEC ROSSO experts upgrade the 6.3-liter 12-cylinder four-valve engine. New mapping for the engine management system was developed in extensive test series on the test rigs and on the road. On the exhaust side a NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance quad exhaust, available with or without controlled butterfly valve, ensures exhaust emissions with low back pressure.
With 574 kW / 781 hp of power at 8,600 rpm and a peak torque increased to 722 Nm at 6,400 rpm the N-LARGO reaches a top speed of about 350 km/h.
NOVITEC ROSSO also offers custom exclusivity for the interior. The cockpit can be designed in leather and Alcantara in any desired color.
