NOVITEC high-performance exhaust systems made from ultralight INCONEL optimize performance and make the exhaust note even more spectacular.
The preparer has also equipped the model with new high-tech 20 and 21-inch forged wheels signed by Vossen. Additionally, custom pure carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancement components can give the body an even more competitive design.
With its combination of a lightweight design and a high-performance four-liter biturbo V8 engine, the McLaren 765LT is one of the most dynamic production sports cars on the market. NOVITEC further enhances these talents with professional engine tuning offered in three variants. All three kits are based on a plug & play NOVITEC N-TRONIC auxiliary control unit that adapts to the electronic controls of the vehicle’s engine.
