Ferrari has released new official details on its latest supercar, which is currently in development, the successor of the iconic Enzo, the so-called F70 or F150.
The Italian based automaker Ferrari has confirmed that an upgraded version of the 6.3 liter V12 engine with 740 HP, found under the hood of the impressive F12 Berlinetta, with an improved version of the HY-KERS electric hybrid system which made its debut two years ago at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, will make their way onto the newest supercar, the F70. According to the car manufacturer, estimations are showing that the F70 will be able to sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in ten percent less time with the system.
Thanks to using a hybrid powertrain, the Ferrari F70 will also emit 40 percent less CO2 compared to the F12 Berlinetta. The brake force distribution, the traction control and the torque vectoring system will be integrated in the chassis electronics and the power-to-weight ratio will stand at 1:1. A carbon fiber monocoque will be used on the model from four types of lightweight material and this will allow the supercar to be 27 percent more rigid and 22 percent more stiff. The F70 will be 1,213 mm tall (47.8 inch) and it will ride on a wheelbase of 2,650 mm long (104.3 inches), the same as the 458 Italia. The V12 HY-KERS engine will be mated to a dual-clutch transmission. More details on the newest Ferrari supercar are limited for the moment.
