The new Novitec Group brand shows off its first program.
The Novitec Group GmbH has been working with all kinds of cars from around Europe under their various umbrella of brands. Their newest brand, SPOFEC is an acronym for the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy and exclusively deals with the customization and upgrades of Rolls Royce vehicles. The first Rolls Royce model to be upgraded under the new brand is the Ghost and it gains a hefty amount of power, performance, and presence.
Right off the bat, the entire exterior of the Rolls Royce Ghost is transformed by a new SPOFEC carbon fiber body kit. The entire front bumper is new and includes larger air intakes and aerodynamics that help to cool the mighty 6.6-liter V-12 and reduce lift at the front axle. Both the standard and long wheelbase versions of the Ghost benefit from carbon fiber side skirts that visually lower the luxury rocketship. At the rear, a full bumper with dual integrated exhaust outlets and subtle trunk spoiler help to showcase the car’s new muscle.
Under the hood of the SPOFEC Rolls Royce Ghost are two different tunes for the 6.6-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 engine. The standard engine benefits from an N-Tronic processor-controlled plug-and-play module that features new ignition and injection mapping, and increased boost pressure. The N-Tronic module for the standard V-12 engines boosts ouput to 685 horsepower at 5,400 RPM and 707 lb-ft. of torque. For the Rolls Royce Ghost V-Specification models with the higher-output engine, the N-Tronic processor turns up the power to 709 horsepower and 721 lb-ft. of torque. That’s good for a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 4.4 seconds and electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. Both engines can benefit from a new stainless steel exhaust system with an optional butterfly valve system that reduce weight by 11 lbs.
The performance is felt more than just under the hood. SPOFEC gave the Ghost some new shoes to match its more nimble underpinnings. New SPOFEC SP1 alloy wheels can be finished in silver, matte black, titanium, or black paint with polished surfaces in a 9J x 22 front and 10.5J x 22 rear setup. Grip is achieved by new Pirelli 265/35 ZR22 and 295/30 ZR22 tires. The new SPOFEC suspension module is calibrated specifically for the new wheels and lowers the ride height by 40 mm at speeds under 87 mph (140 km/h) for an optimum center of gravity. At higher speeds, the suspension raises to the stock ride height. Improving performance even further are new SPOFEC carbon ceramic high-performance brakes with 405 x 30 front and 395 x 38 mm rear discs that cut 84 lbs. of weight and help the luxury sedan stop on a dime.
All of the new SPOFEC Rolls Royce Ghost upgrades are currently available for the standard and long wheelbase models.
