The Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo has recently announced that the replacement of the Enzo, with its hybrid powertrain, will be officially presented by the end of this year.
After the scheme to the Ferrari Enzo’s successor hybrid powertrain has been officially presented to the public last month during the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, the supercar is once again being placed into the spotlights, this time by the company’s chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, who has announced that the vehicle will make its debut by the end of this year.
“At the end of the year, we will also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first every hybrid car”, said Luca di Montezemolo.
The successor of the Ferrari Enzo, which will be codenamed the 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. 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. The Ferrari F70 is expected to come with 920 HP and weigh around 1,134 kg or 2,500 lbs.
