If a CO2 tax refers to a fine based on how much carbon fiber was used to build a car, Novitec Group would look with a special tuner for a hefty bill for the most recent creation. The Novitec N-Largo not only adds a styling package, not just a performance upgrade, not just an adjustment of the suspension, but all three on the already enormously talented 720s supercar.
Novitec, based in Germany, has made a name for tuning elite performance and luxury cars, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, Maseratis, Teslas and McLarens. In the past, Novitec has offered its view of McLaren's 540C, the 570S, the 570GT and even another example of the 720s. But this new building has a much more assertive personality than the rather subtle make-over.
Limited to just 15 examples, the N-Largo gives the 720s an appearance similar to that of the McLaren Senna. Using cast carbon fiber, the N-Largo closed the soft and soft curves of the stock car for a more aggressive stance. The car is lowered 1.3 inches with sport springs, and it sits on staggered Foxes MC2 forged center-lock wheels, 20-inches at the front and 21-inches at the rear, wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber.
Novitec notes that the new bumpers completely replace the original McLaren parts and bolt with the secured original connection points. The styling kit was also not devoid of practical thinking, because the kit retains the aerodynamic and cooling chisels that make the 720s a deadly performance vehicle. The N-Largo also adds a new aerodynamic back pivot attachment that is said to increase the downward force.
More importantly, Novitec created three different levels of performance tunes for the 720s. According to Vossen, an auxiliary control unit is connected and adapted to the electronic engine control of the car. In the most powerful Stage 2 configuration, with an exhaust performance, the N-Largo appears with 794 hp and 648 lb-ft of torque, 84 more horses and 80 more lb-ft than the standard 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque from the 4.0 liter V8 with dual turbocharger. According to Novitec and Vossen this gives the N-Largo a 0-62 time of 2.7 seconds, a 0-124 run in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of about 215 mph.
There is no word about pricing or availability, but we can say this: Novitec is already working on an interpretation of the McLaren 600LT. We feel that it is even more boastful than the 720s.
