NOVITEC Ferrari 296 GTB hybrid sports car
Ferrari's latest hybrid sports car, the 296 GTB, exemplifies the brand's consistent transfer of technology from its Formula 1 racecars to its production of state-of-the-art high-performance vehicles.
The car boasts a newly designed twin-turbo V6 engine and an MGU-K electric generator with a motor positioned behind it. NOVITEC, as the world's top refinement specialist for Maranello's super powerful cars, offers customized designs for the Ferrari 296 GTB to enhance its striking appearance.
Their high-performance exhaust system, which comes in various versions, has catalysts and turbo inlets with optimized airflow, enabling the internal combustion engine to breathe better. This boosts the car's output by 38 horsepower to 868 hp.
There are plans for further performance upgrades for the Ferrari 296 series in development.
The NOVITEC design studio is currently creating sporty aerodynamic components for the mid-engine sports car. They have also collaborated with Vossen to develop tailor-made hi-tech wheels in 21 and 22-inch sizes. The available NOVITEC sports springs improve the car's handling, and the studio offers an extensive range of exclusive interior design options in various colors.
NOVITEC specializes in high-performance exhaust systems for the most luxurious cars in the world. Their developers prioritize precise exhaust routing, innovative solutions and materials, and exceptional build quality.
NOVITEC designed an exhaust system for the 296 GTB hybrid sports car. The V6 exhaust systems come in two types: stainless steel and INCONEL, a hi-tech alloy used in Formula 1. The systems are insulated with high-temperature insulation to optimize engine bay temperatures.
The INCONEL version can be further enhanced with 999 fine gold plating. NOVITEC engineers also created custom turbo inlets and 100-cell metal catalysts to improve exhaust flow.
These modifications increase peak power by 28 kW / 38 hp and produce an exciting exhaust note, which can be individually adjusted by the driver using actively controlled butterfly valves in the cockpit.
NOVITEC offers various tailpipes, available with or without carbon embellisher, with a diameter of 102 millimeters for the 296 GTB. The tailpipes are optionally available with 999 fine gold plating, and a mesh insert is also available to integrate the exhaust pipes into the rear end of the car.
NOVITEC has developed hi-tech wheels in collaboration with Vossen. The NF 10 wheels are made of hi-tech blanks, featuring five delicate twin spokes that extend all the way to the outermost edge. They come in various sizes, including size 9.5Jx21 at the front with 255/30 ZR 21 tires and size 11.5Jx22 with 335/25 R 22 tires on the rear axle. The NOVITEC sports springs lower the vehicle's ride height by 35 millimeters, improving both the looks and handling.
NOVITEC also offers a front lift system for the 296 GTB, which hydraulically raises the nose of the vehicle by about 40 millimeters at the touch of a button. For the interior, the German refinement specialist provides first-class appointments in virtually any desired color.
