For a supercar with no roof, no windscreen, you would think that 804 horsepower, 590 lb ft of torque, and a top speed of 203 mph would be sufficient.
The Novitec Modified McLaren Elva with 906bhp
A normal McLaren Elva isn't nearly radical enough, according to German tuner Novitec.
As a result, a new plug-and-play ECU module and a unique gold-plated performance exhaust enable the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 of this modified McLaren to produce 906 bhp and a really terrifying 655 lb ft of torque.
As a result, the 0-62 mph time has decreased to just 2.7 seconds, while the top speed has increased to somewhere around 205 mph.
In order to produce a "bubble of tranquilly," McLaren's clever Active Air Management System (the pop-up tea tray in front of the cockpit) must keep up.
Surprisingly for Novitec, the Elva's bodywork has been kept mostly untouched, with the new forged wheels serving as the sole external cosmetic change.
They are made by the US company Vossen and measure 20 inches up front and 21 inches behind.
The German company claims it can "tailor the inside of the McLaren Elva to the owner's requirements in every detail" and offers Novitec performance springs that lower the ride height by 20mm.
