Novitec Builds Own Exclusive High-End Sports Car the TuLesto
Novitec Rosso is the premier Ferrari tuner, known for adding serious performance upgrades to vehicles that are by their very nature outstanding. Now they are looking for something a bit more ambitious for the company’s 20th anniversary. As such, Novitec is building a “proprietary” sports car that shares a certain likeness with the Ferrari F430. The Novitec TuLesto will be powered by a mid-mounted 4.4-liter V8 engine producing 777 horsepower. With dual superchargers the car is good for 0 to 60 mph runs in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph. A semi-automatic gearbox with 6 gears is controlled via carbon fiber paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. Only 11 of these wicked coupes will be available, so act fast– operators are standing by…
The Novitec TuLesto is really a race car that’s been outfitted for street driving. The chassis and integrated safety cell is made out of aluminum to be both extremely light weight and rigid. The car’s setup is strait out of GT-series racing and features a double wishbone suspension in both front and rear, ride adjustable struts with varied damping rates and adjustable sways bars. For speed bumps and whatnot, the press of a button can raise the front end 4 centimeters for additional clearance. Braking comes from ceramic composite discs with 6-piston calipers in front and back. Ultra-light alloy wheels in either 20 or 21 inches are available with semi-slicks as wide as 355 millimeters in the rear.
