NOVITEC presents its first car, TuLesto, a very fine-tuned F430

NOVITEC has presented today what it calls its first proprietary car, the TuLesto. Anyway, if don't even have to pay careful attention to it to see this is a Ferrari F430 that has gone through several changes, but still presents that typical Italian way.

NOVITEC will always be able to claim this Italian flair comes from Luca Serafini Stile design studio, which has helped the German tuning company create TuLesto, but that 4.4-litre V8 engine, even pumping out 777 cv (571.8 kW) at 8,200 rpm and 727 Nm at 6,300 rpm with the help of two turbochargers, does not deny it was based on the 4.3-litre V8 from Ferrari.

The car may not be as original as NOVITEC would like it to be, but still drives a lot of attention, especially because only 11 of them will ever be built. Apart from that, the car reaches 100 km/h from standstill in 3.4 s and weighs 1,259 kg. Top speed is above 350 km/h, but the company does not inform how much above that the top speed goes. The interior of the car will be personalised to each of the customers, chosen from the ones that have been with NOVITEC for a long time.

TuLesto is 4.62 m long, 2.04 m wide and 1.22 m tall, a little bigger than F430, and presents 20-inch wheels in front and 21-inch wheels, with up to 355 mm semislick tyres, at the back.
