Novitec unveils 700 hp version of McLaren GTAugust 5, 2020
Tuners have presented a “package” of upgrades for the British McLaren GT coupe. Its engine power was increased to 700 horsepower. In addition, the car received Vossen wheels and a stylish aerodynamic body kit.
Tuning company Novitec decided that the McLaren GT lacked hardcore dynamics. There are several power packs to choose from, the most powerful of which can squeeze 697 horsepower (714 Nm) out of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 V8. Thus, the tuner received an additional 85 hp. (84 Nm) compared to standard power ratings.
With an upgraded engine, the Novitec McLaren GT accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3 seconds, or 0.2 seconds faster than the standard model.
At the same time, the top speed has been slightly increased from the production 326 km / h to 333 – not bad for a car that the automaker is positioning as a sports car for travel.
In addition to the upgraded V8 engine, Novitec also worked on the aerodynamics of the car – the coupe was even investigated in a wind tunnel. All of the added elements of the new body kit are made of carbon fiber so as not to add too much weight to the car and improve its appearance.
The McLaren GT is now equipped with a set of Vossen forged, double-spoke wheels measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. The new alloy wheels are complemented by a suspension lowering kit, which brings the car closer to the road by about 25 mm.
Rounding out the list of changes is a stainless steel exhaust system, as well as a host of interior enhancements. It is reported that the buyer can choose from a variety of leather and Alcantara finishes in different colors and patterns of upholstery.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a budget copy of the McLaren Elva sports speedster was made from Ford Focus. An unusual car, created by the hands of Russian craftsmen, was reported on Instagram. In the process of alteration, the Ford Focus lost its roof, side windows and even doors. Netizens have already nicknamed the original speedster McLaren Elva for the poor.
