Novitec N-Largo-s the Ferrari 812 Superfast

Tuner liberates 840hp from V12 - and adds half a foot to the car's width



It was only a couple of months ago that German tuner (or "refinement specialist", as the press release prefers) Novitec did a rather respectable job of fettling the Ferrari Portofino. Respectability doesn't seem to be high on the agenda of its latest creation, however, which takes the form of this widebody 812 Superfast.

The N-Largo (that's pronounced "en lar-go" not "enlarge-o", despite the increased dimensions) features a carbon fibre bodykit that adds a full 5.5 inches to the width of the car. The kit is comprised of new front and rear bumpers, flared fenders which house forged 21-inch front and 22-inch rear wheels, naked carbon sills, four vertical bargeboards, a carbon fibre wing working in tandem with a "discreet roof spoiler lip" and a new bonnet design. Oh, and a great big diffuser.


The entire kit is said to be wind tunnel optimised, and to have a significant effect on the car's aerodynamics - how could it not?- improving stability. Which is something you'll be glad of at the 812's new 215mph top speed. This comes, along with a 2.8 second 0-62 time, thanks to the liberation of an extra 28hp from the 6.5-litre V12, bringing its total output up to 840hp at 8,750rpm and 554lb ft of torque at 7,300rpm.

To round things off Novitec installs new suspension, lowering the ride height by 35mm, adds its own hydraulic lift system, which can raise the car by 40mm again should the need arise, and offers a choice of stainless steel or Inconel active exhaust systems. The latter option not only reduces back pressure and saves 11kg in weight, but can be purchased on its own to be fitted to any standard 812 Superfast and, well, just listen to it.

Finally there's the custom quilted interior, which looks rather smart, actually, just perhaps not in the shade of violet that is shown specced here. So there you have it, a highly unique take on what is already a very exclusive machine. Don't all rush at once.

Love it!

The noise it makes under that bridge sounds like F1 cars going through the tunnel at the Monaco grand prix.

Should this even be legal? I'm talking from a taste point of view.

That sounds fantastic. But then again, that V12 does straight out of the factory.

So very long time reader but first ever post. Initially reminded me of a car that I fell in love with in my early days of automotive obsession ....... the Koenig testarossa. I lusted over the flared arches and obscenely wide tyres as a 13 year old boy. Anyway fast forward 30+ years and my heart started to beat faster when I saw the pictures of this but then I thought doesn’t that look a lot like a corvette zr1 ? To my eyes yes .......and that’s not an entirely bad thing really. The noise is awesome.....so on the whole yep I want one......

Which begs the obvious question, how do you know what the interior of a strip club looks like...
