Novitec Lays hands on the McLaren GT from its Bumper to the Engine to the Aerodynamic system to the cockpit. The auto tuner touches mostly all parts of the supercar.

The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 can now produce up to 697 HP (707 PS / 520 kW) and 527 lb-ft (714 Nm) of torque in the most powerful of Novitec’s three available tuning kits, for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) of 3.0 seconds and a 207 mph (333 km/h) top speed.

The stock motor pumps out 611 HP (620 PS / 456 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm), propelling the GT to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds and up to 203 mph (326 km/h).

Novitec also spent some time in the wind tunnel to perfect a subtle aerodynamic body kit for the GT. All the newly added bits are made from carbon fiber to keep weight in check and boost the car’s visual impact furthermore. Goodies vary from a front spoiler lip and air intake surrounds to rocker panels and a rear spoiler.

Dropping the car by around 1 inch (25 mm) “without adversely affecting the relatively high ride quality of the GT”, according to the tuner, are the new sport springs, which still leave room under the arches for the aftermarket wheels. The 8.5×20- front and 12×21-inch rear wheels were made by Vossen and are wrapped in 245/30 and 325/25 tires, respectively.

Finally, the cockpit can be reupholstered in fine leather and Alcantara, which can be fashioned in any desired color, so for the right sum, one can make sure that the unique combo will not be found in another McLaren GT.
