Beijing: Ferrari Enzo’s successor (F70) hybrid powertrain revealed image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari has brought the scheme to the Enzo’s successor hybrid powertrain to the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, and this is revealing a V12 petrol burner along with two electric motors.

According to the executive president of Ferrari, Amedeo Felisa, the successor of the Enzo has been codenamed the F70 and it will be “filled” with state of the art technology, becoming the first ever hybrid production vehicle of the company. Amedeo Felisa says that the Ferrari F70 will use a hybrid powertrain which will be made out of a naturally aspirated V12 petrol burner and two electric motors, mated to a double-clutch transmission. One of the electric motors will be placed between the engine and the transmission, being mated to one of the clutches and the other electric motor will be placed in front of the V12.

Ferrari says that the first electric motor will be used as a generator which is capturing kinetic energy and sends it to the lithium-ion battery pack while the second one will be responsible for charging the auxiliary systems. This hybrid powertrain is actually an evolution of the HY-KERS revealed in Geneva two years ago on a 599 GTB, but it will be used on a mid-engines supercar in the future. The Ferrari F70 is expected to come with a massive output of 920 horsepower and this will weight around 1,134 kg or 2,500 lbs.
