Exterior

This vehicle uses carbon fiber for the grille, front lip spoilers; the 21 /22 inch forged alloy wheels fit nicely with the Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires. At front, a set of flares have been fitted with a horizontal air vent; this is to cool the ceramic brakes.

The hood receives added highlights with N- LARGO air scoops on the left and right side that complement the central air-deflection insert. The carbon-fiber has also been used for the side mirrors and other locations as a finishing touch.

Rear rocker panels are available in a matte or high-gloss clear coated in carbon fiber. The subtle separation-edge on the car’s roof which is available with clear coated carbon-fiber finish, gives this vehicle a menacing racing look.

The Novitec Rosso team lowered the suspension by 40 mm; this was accomplished through the aid of a set of springs. For those who want greater ground clearance for speed bumps or parking garage, an optional lift system is available.

Interior

Novitec Rosso upgraded the interior and as expected, the designers are ready to customize the inside based on your preference. The cockpit can be laced with leather and in any color you want.
