Ferrari chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, has confirmed the successor to the Ferrari Enzo will feature a hybrid power system. The supercar is set to be publicly revealed later this year.
Just like the previous Enzo, Ferrari have said the new car will be built in limited numbers. Where it will differ from the old car, is in the powerplant – a hybrid V12 incorporating Ferrari’s HY-KERS system. It’ll be bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Montezemolo said “At the end of the year, we’ll also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first ever hybrid car”.
Insiders at Ferrari say that power from the hybrid drivetrain will be quite a lot higher than that of the recently released 544kW/690Nm V12-powered Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
