New Release: Novitec McLaren 720S
World renowned for their exquisite Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren and Tesla conversions, NOVITEC now proudly launches their comprehensive customisation and tuning programme for the McLaren 720s.
The sole representative of McLaren’s Super Series, the 720s possesses futuristic looks and stellar performance that have captured the imagination of enthusiasts all over the world. Now NOVITEC places the 720S firmly in hypercar territory with a conversion that rockets it to 100km/h in just 2.7 sec, to 200km/h in 7.5 seconds, and on to a sensational 346km/h Vmax.
The long options list includes a three-stage engine conversion programme for up to 806hp (592kW), along with 878Nm of torque, sport exhaust systems, carbon-fibre aerodynamic components, suspension upgrades, and the distinctive NOVITEC MC1 forged alloy wheels.
The subtle NOVITEC carbon-fibre aero package includes headlamp inserts, a full width front spoiler with a more pronounced lip, air splitter, side fins and longer air intake surrounds to improve the channelling of ram air. The carbon-fibre side skirts emphasise the Coke bottle form of this super sports car and reduce airflow spillage along the flat bottom area between the wheels.
The new carbon-fibre rear bumper saves weight while maintaining the all-important venting of hot air from the engine bay. Below this the carbon-fibre underbody diffuser and rear spoiler with Gurney flap improve downforce over the rear axle at high speed, balancing the extra downforce created by the longer front splitter.
Completing the carbon-fibre programme is a set of purely decorative components including the air intakes for the front bonnet, rear engine cover, rear bumper side trims, side air intakes, sill entrance panels, and door mirror caps.
NOVITEC fills out the wheel arches of the 720s with their bespoke MC1 forged wheels in 9.0J x 20-inch and 12.0J x 21-inch sizes front and rear respectively. As well as aiding handling the larger rear wheels emphasise the cars sleek wedge shape. These superlight forged wheels are available in silver, black and anthracite from stock, but can also be painted to individual customer requirements. They can also be ordered as a complete wheel/tyre set, shod with 255/30R20 and 325/25R21 ultra high-speed tyres (Pirelli P-Zero) rated to over 300km/h.
For the customer who feels the 720s is not fast enough NOVITEC offer three stages of power increase, centred on their innovative N-TRONIC additional electronic control unit. As the 720S uses one ECU for each cylinder bank, two N-TRONIC units are required.
Stage 1 utilises the N-TRONIC units to lift output of the twin-turbo, flat-plane crank V8 motor to 773hp (568kW) at 6,800rpm, while boosting maximum torque to 849Nm at 6,250rpm.
With a rousing 806hp (592kW) at 6,700rpm and 878Nm of torque at 6,300rpm, Stage 2 is the most potent variant. It maximises the lowered backpressure enjoyed by the ‘RACE’ version of the stainless steel exhaust system with catalytic converter bypass pipe. The accompanying NOVITEC TECTRONIC unit avoids error codes from the factory closed loop exhaust monitoring system.
The Stage 3 conversion is similar to Stage 2, but costs more as it features 100-cell free-flow sports metal catalytic converters to achieve 791hp (581kW) at 6,700rpm and 863Nm of torque at 6,300rpm with full German TUV certification.
Various components of the NOVITEC sports exhaust system such as the stainless steel end pipes can be purchased separately, while the performance-optimised RACE system can be had in either stainless steel or Inconel, and with or without the NOVITRONIC flap control module.
To improve the stance and handling of the 720S NOVITEC offer a set of lowering springs tailored to work within the parameters of the factory active damping system. Aluminium wheel spacers in 22mm and 30mm widths for the front and rear axles add the finishing touch to NOVITEC’s tailored upgrade programme for McLaren 720s.
