Novitec Rosso N-Largo California unveiled - more power, less taste?

More power than an Enzo from modified twin-turbo V8

Novitec has had its rather questionable way with the Ferrari California T, unveiling this 668bhp wide-bodied version of the car. Called the N-Largo California, it is 11 cm wider than a standard California T thanks to extensive carbon fibre bodywork additions.

Developed by Vittorio Strosek, the German designer who pioneered wide-bodied supercars in the 1980’s, the N-Largo California is a significant departure from the standard Ferrari in both power and looks.

A normal California T produces 553bhp at 7500 rpm and 557lb ft of torque, with a top speed of 196mph from a twin-turbocharged V8. Novitec's mods bring power output up to 668bhp and deliver a 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 201mph.

The wide-body conversion of the car adds modified front fenders which bring 6 centimetres extra front axle width, as well as a modified rear end that brings 11 centimetres of extra space. The added room allows for three-piece Novitec Rosso N-Largo NF5 NL alloys shod with Pirelli P-Zero tyres. Ride height has also been lowered by 35 millimetres.

Novitec offers extensive interior customisation options to the California, as well as a custom stainless steel sports exhaust system for the car.
