Novitec creates its own supercar – the TuLesto

Novitec TuLesto fq

Tuner Novitec is famous for its ability to produce street-friendly tuner Ferrari models with massive power and tasteful aesthetic modifications. Novitec’s latest work the Novitec TuLesto clearly has a lot of Ferrari 430 influence, but also has a lot more to offer. Built in Bavaria by the German tuner, this mid-engined supercar is something of a celebratory model, designed to mark the company’s 20th anniversary.

Just 11 examples are planned, each brandishing exactly 777 horsepower — enough to push the carbon-fibre and aluminum body to 100 kph in 3.4 seconds before topping out at more than 350 kmh. Power comes from a 4.4-litre four-valve V8 with a pair of superchargers strapped on to earn the 777 hp (at 8,200 rpm), along with a peak torque figure of 536 pound-feet at 6,300 rpm. The sole transmission choice is a six-speed semi-automatic paddleshift setup.

While probably built more as a trackday monster, there is some street cred to the TuLesto, as well. The Luca Serafini designed front-end can be lifted four inches to accommodate speed bumps and ramps preventing damage. The suspension set up is a fully tweakable double-wishbone which includes adjustable dampers and swaybars.

The available 20- or 21-inch wheels are evil-looking Novitec own rims, and they house a set of ceramic composite brakes with six-piston fixed calipers.
