Ferrari Enzo May Get 920 HP Hybrid Powerplant
It seems like Ferrari is breaking its usual silence regarding the new products developed by the company. The Italian car manufacturer usually keeps silent, but this time details regarding its forthcoming model are out. Latest reports say that the famous sports car manufacturer plans to replace its Enzo, and the new model is expected to be shown at a private event this fall. The vehicle is expected to make its public appearance next year, more likely at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The company said that the vehicle, before its debut is shown for the selected customers of Ferrari.
Dubbed the F70, the new Ferrari Enzo is expected to feature a hybrid powertrain, and a modified version of the FF GT’s 6.3-liter V12 gasloine engine, which generates around 800-horses linked to a KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) driveline with a 120HP electric motor. The KERS is used to produce an extra 120hp, making the potential total output of the next model well over 900hp. As of now, any official statement had not come from the company regarding the Enzo replacement, but more details will be revealed soon.
Built in 2002, the Ferrari Enzo is a 12 cylinder mid-engine vehicle built using Formula One technology, such as a carbon-fibre body, F1-style electrohydraulic shift transmission, and Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes. Even though, the firm didn’t reveal the details, the car enthusiasts worldwide are eagerly waiting for the new model Ferrari Enzo to repeat the history.
