Novitec has made the already awesome Ferrari F8 Spider even better!by Alina Moore, on LISTEN 03:07
It is officially two years since Ferrari launched the F8 Spider back in 2019. And, if you ask us, the supercar was pretty close to being perfect, and no changes were really needed. But Novitec always finds something that can be improved. The updates offered for the F8 Spider are kind of similar to what we have already seen on the F8 Tributo unveiled at the beginning of 2021 (not the N-Largo pack though).

What’s different on the exterior and the interior?
For the exterior body kit the material used was of course carbon fiber. The upgrades start with a two-piece front spoiler that not only make the F8 Spider look better, but it also enhances the aerodynamics of the supercar.
The kit also includes carbon flaps on both sides of the bumper, the usual Novitec insert on the hood, Novitec side mirrors, and Novitec rocker panels - all offering a sleeker visual appearnce to the F8.
In the rear, the tuner offers a choice of a larger rear spoiler in ducktail design or a rear wing.
The car comes with a wide range of of tailor-made wheels, designed in cooperation with Vossen. For example, one of the coolest choices are the wheels you see in the pictures. We are talking about a set of wheels in Novitec NF10 design, five filigree twin-spokes, and a hub cover in center-lock look. They are painted in “Satin Bronze”, but a wide range of colors if offered by Vossen. The wheels come wrapped in high-performance tires that measure 255/30 ZR 21 and 335/25 ZR 22.
For the interior, Novitec is offering a wide range of materials, ranging from leather to Alcantara, plus the choice of any color you can imagine.
Best changes were made under the hood
An aggressive looking car needs, of course, a lot of power under the hood. Not that the 710 horsepower from the factory wouldn’t be enough! But Novitec found a way to squeeze an extra 100 horsepower (well, almost) from the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. And not by doing much! Only the engine’s peripherals are modified in different expansion stages and a Novitec high-performance exhaust system was also installed.
The result? 802 horsepower at 8,000 RPM and a peak torque of 662 pound-feet.
The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is down from 2.9 seconds to 2.6 seconds, but top speed remains unchanged at 211 mph.
The last updates were made to the suspension. By adding new sport springs, the car’s ride was lowered by 35 mm (1.4 inches). The tuner also installed a hydraulic suspension system that will raise the front axle by 40 mm (1.6 inches).
