Novitec’s bodykit is done completely in carbon fiber that work in combination with the newly designed wheels. The NF3 wheels are fitted with aluminum spacers and specially-built titanium lugs. Novitec also offered lowered springs and a front sway bar.

Exterior carbon fiber bits include the front spoiler lips and carbon fiber intake flaps with optional extenders. The carbon theme is extended around the cars with new sills, C-pillar intake, engine vent louvers, rear spoiler lip and a multi-piece diffuser in the rear.

Inside more carbon is laid out for the shift levers, sill plate and center console. Novitec even have a complete carbon fiber inlay package for the engine compartment which covers almost every surface.
