German tuner Novitec has worked on a McLaren 570S Spider this time, giving it a designer outfit made from naked carbon, light forged wheels with 20 and 21-inch diameter and a performance upgrade to 475 kW / 646 hp and 692 Nm of torque.
The naked carbon components enhance the aerodynamics of the car. Novitec said that the components have been optimized in the wind tunnel to reduce front-axle lift at high speeds, while the rear spoiler will elevate the handling stability even further.
The carbon rocker panels lend the British sports car a longer and lower visual stance. In addition, the transition between the front and rear wheel arches now looks even more homogeneous. The aerodynamic finishing touches also include carbon covers for the air intakes on both sides of the vehicle.
The Novitec sport springs reduce the ride height by 30 mm, further enhancing the looks of the Spider.
The engine specialists have developed three different performance kits for the 3.8-litre twin turbo V8. The special feature of this engine tuning is that the driver will be able to activate or deactivate it at any time on the ‘Active Dynamic Panel.’ When needed, the two plug-and-play Novitec N-Tronic modules adapted to the ECU of the vehicle provide injection, ignition and boost pressure control with new mapping in a matter of seconds, Novitec said.
The maximum performance, in combination with a Novitec Race high-performance exhaust system, produces an additional 56 kW / 76 hp of peak power. At the same time, the engine develops 92 Nm more torque. With an output of 475 kW / 646 hp at 7,450 rpm and a peak torque of 692 Nm at 6,250 rpm, the open-top two-seater delivers further improved driving dynamics: From rest, the tuned 570S Spider storms to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds. The top speed increases to 335 km/h. Novitec said that the performance upgrade offers more than just improved road performance: It also makes the throttle response even more instantaneous. In addition, the power and torque curve is even more potent across the entire rev range.
The Novitec high-performance exhaust system comes in different variants, made from stainless steel or the even lighter INCONEL material used in the Formula One racing.
