The new NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO widebody version makes the Ferrari California T even more incredible with its overall width at 202 centimeters which is 11 centimeters wider than the production. The success story of the exciting N LARGO version of the Ferrari F12 is the logical continuation. The bodywork conversion kit was developed with Vittorio Strosek, is made from extremely lightweight yet high strength carbon fiber. With unrivalled expertise in this field German designer Vittorio Strosek was one of the pioneers in the 1980’s for the development of thrilling widebody versions for the world’s most exclusive sports cars. The conversion bodywork for the California T continues effortlessly with NOVITEC ROSSO. The widebody version of the roadster is even more extreme and dynamic, and displays a rousing wasp waist thanks to the new wider front fenders and the fender flares on the rear axle.
The front fenders, add six centimeters in all to the front axle width of the two seater, replace the production parts in their entirety and make room for widebody version specially designed wheels. Using high-end forging technology, a three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO NF5 NL alloys have been manufactured. The wheels of size 9Jx21 on the front axle are mounted with size 255/30 ZR 21 Pirelli P ZERO high performance tires and transfer the steering and braking forces to the road. In the rear of the new bodywork components, a ventilation slot integrated on either side allows the hot air to escape from the carbon-ceramic brake discs and the brake calipers.
On the rear axle, the width of the California T has increased by eleven centimeters. For this increase the styled fender flares were formed and seamlessly joined to the production bodywork. For which matching fender liners were designed to offer larger wheel wells for NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO NF5 NL forged wheels of size 12Jx22. Their primary visual appeal stems from an extremely concave wheel spider with five delicate double spokes. Mounted with Pirelli P ZERO high performance tires of size 315/25 ZR 22. For aerodynamically and visually perfection, the new rocker panels create a transition between the widened wheel arches at the front and rear. They have large air intakes that redirect the relative wind to the rear brakes.
Of course, the NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO also has a distinctively styled face. For the wide front fenders a new front bumper was developed and tailored to compliment the wider fit. The larger side air intakes improve the supply of cooling air to the front brakes. A factor in reducing lift on the front axle at high speeds is thanks to its highly contoured shaping. This also applies to the central front blade, which is optionally also available with a clear coated carbon fiber finish. The material used for the radiator grille and the surrounds of the air vents on the hood and the exterior mirrors is the same as that of the same material as motor racing.
The rear bumper was designed as one part as it blends flawlessly with the N LARGO fender flares. The integrated diffuser provides the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the NOVITEC ROSSO high performance exhaust system which also increases down force on the rear axle. This can optionally be ordered with a clear-coated carbon fiber finish. The aerodynamic enhancement concept of the NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO widebody version was optimized in the wind tunnel and is rounded out with the new rear airfoil. As an available alternative, a subtle rear spoiler tip is an option. Both spoiler variants are available in a clear coated carbon fiber version, as are the surrounds for the tail lamps and a roof skin offering full-blooded racing looks for the folding hard top of the California T. Additional individual highlights can be added in the form of black side marker lights and reflectors.
The widebody NOVITEC ROSSO N LARGO has a magnificent appearance with large forged staggered wheels that accentuate the wedge shape is further emphasized by the ride height lowering of the sports car. By NOVITEC ROSSO sports springs having a lowered center of gravity by about 35 millimeters, provides positive effects on the handling of the Ferrari.
