The Ferrari tuner from Germany, has unveiled its exclusive high-end sports car known as the Novitec TuLesto which resembles the Ferrari 430. The production will be limited to only 11 units for the company’s long-time customers from around the world.
The Novitec TuLesto is built at Novitec’s plant in Stetten in the province of Bavaria, Germany. The two-seater, mid-engine supercar is 462 cm long, 204 cm wide and 122 cm tall and weighs in at just 1,260 kg. The light-weight materials used to construct the car are normally found in race cars such as the aluminum chassis and the integrated safety cell that is also made of aluminum.
The Novitec TuLesto is powered by a 4.4-liter four-valve V8 engine with dual superchargers installed directly behind the cockpit and coupled with a six gears semi-automatic gearbox with integrated anti-slip differential to produce 777 hp (571.8 kW) at 8,200 rpm and a maximum torque of 727 Nm at 6,300 rpm.
The TuLesto has a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.62 kg/hp thanks to the carbon fiber and aluminum construction of the car. The Novitec TuLesto coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.4 seconds, 0-300 km/h in just after 22.6 seconds with the top speed of 350 km/h.
Novitec Rosso team up with Luca Serafini Stille design studio in Modena, Italy to design the TuLesco by creating the coupe using state-of-the-art CAD and CFD technologies which is further augmented by the use of the wind tunnel.
At the exterior, the TuLesto features fenders, front apron, smooth underbody with integrated venture tunnel and diffuser at the rear that were calibrated in the wind tunnel to create an optimal aerodynamic balance.
