NOVITEC refines the new Maserati MC20
Engine tuning to 523 kW / 711 hp and 818 Nm of torque
0 – 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of over 325 km/h
Naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement kit and hi-tech forged wheels
For decades, NOVITEC has been one of the globally most renowned refinement specialists for the world’s most exclusive cars. In addition to Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Tesla, the German company focuses on the Maserati brand. NOVITEC now also offers exclusive options for the new MC20 mid-engined sports car.
The company’s product range for the twin-turbo V6 includes engine tuning to 523 kW / 711 hp and 818 Nm peak torque, and high-performance exhaust systems that culminate in a superlight INCONEL variant with 999 fine gold plating.
The NOVITEC designers employ naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components, hi-tech forged wheels with diameters up to 21 inches and sport springs to make the thrilling appearance of the two-seater even more spectacular.
NOVITEC also tailors every detail in the cockpit to the personal wishes of the customer by request.
The three-liter, six-cylinder engine with two turbochargers provides an outstanding starting point for powerful tuning. The NOVITEC power unit engineers developed various performance upgrades for the MC20 that unleash the reserves slumbering in the engine. To this end, two plug-and-play NOVITEC N-TRONIC modules are adapted to the electronic engine control system of the Maserati. They introduce special maps for injection, boost pressure control, and ignition, which make the sports car considerably more dynamic.
As the perfect complement, NOVITEC offers precisely tuned high-performance exhaust systems in various versions. The sport mufflers let the V6 breathe out more freely while giving it an even sportier exhaust note to boot. NOVITEC also offers even lighter and more efficient 100-cell sport catalysts to optimize the performance even further.
All exhaust components are sheathed in high-temperature thermal insulation, which reduces the temperatures in the engine bay. The NOVITEC exhaust systems, which optionally come with active sound management by means of controlled butterfly valves in the exhaust, can be ordered made from stainless steel or especially light INCONEL, which is also used in Formula 1 racing. To further optimize heat dissipation, 999 fine gold plating is available for these systems as an additional option.
To enhance the looks of the rear end further, the exhaust systems can be combined with NOVITEC carbon/stainless tailpipes with a diameter of 100 millimeters, whose slanted design matches the rear end contours.
The combination of modified engine controls and NOVITEC sport exhaust considerably uprates the performance of the six-cylinder engine. It produces an increase in peak power by 59.6 kW / 81 hp and bumps peak torque by 88 Nm. The twin-turbo V6 with NOVITEC tuning puts out an impressive 523 kW / 711 hp at 7,400 rpm and produces its peak torque of 818 Nm between 3,000 and 5,500 rpm.
This naturally also benefits the performance on the road. The tuned two-seater reaches a speed of 100 km/h in a mere 2.8 seconds and 200 km/h in just 8.4 seconds. The top sped is more than 325 km/h. On the road, the NOVITEC performance upgrade not only results in even sportier performance, but also in even more instant throttle response and more powerful in-gear acceleration.
Of course, for a car this fast it is not only thrilling looks, but above all aerodynamic efficiency that is paramount. To this end, NOVITEC conducted extensive tests in the wind tunnel. The NOVITEC aerodynamic-enhancement components are produced from naked carbon with high-gloss sealant and complement the production carbon elements.
The NOVITEC lip spoiler at the front gives the mid-engined sports car an even more striking face. What is more: It also reduces front-axle lift, which further improves handling stability at high speeds. The NOVITEC designers shaped a ducktail rear spoiler in order to generate even more rear downforce. The racing looks of the MC20 are rounded off by naked-carbon inserts for the front hood and the air deflector elements for the air intakes in the rear end.
The NF 10 wheels, developed in cooperation with Vossen, also play a part in the polished NOVITEC design. The American high-end rim manufacturer produces them using state-of-the-art forging and machining technology. With their five delicate twin spokes, they not only enhance the vehicle design, but also offer an optimal combination of lightweight construction and maximum strength.
The wheels were designed to fill out the available space under the wheel arches optimally. In addition, the staggered combination of diameters at the front and rear puts even greater emphasis on the wedge shape of the MC20. The front wheels of size 9Jx20 are fitted with high-performance tires of size 255/35 ZR 20. The rear axle uses 325/25 ZR 21 tires on 12Jx21 rims. They make the handling even more direct and sportier, an effect that can be further optimized with the NOVITEC sport springs, which lower the ride height of the two-seater by about 25 millimeters.
NOVITEC also refines the interior of the MC20 by customer request. The company creates full sets of exclusive interior appointments in any desired color from the finest leather and Alcantara with consummate workmanship.
