Ferrari F70 production version to be named the F150 image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari is planning to launch the final production version of the F70 under the F150 name.

After it was teased a couple of times and with the model being spied too, the newest supercar in Ferrari’s lineup, the F70, is ending up in our news once again, this time with a new rumor, which is saying that the final production version will hit the market as the F150. The Ferrari F150 will be 20 percent lighter and 22 percent stiffer than the iconic Enzo, thanks to the use of Kevlar and carbon fiber body shell. The lightweight materials will also help the supercar save some weight too.

The successor of the iconic Enzo will be powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine, the same one used under the hood of the F12 Berlinetta too, which will produce more than 750 HP (559 kW), compared to the 731 HP (545 kW) in the F12. The petrol burner will be helped by an electric motor which will generate 100 HP (74 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (200 lb-ft). The F150 will emit 40 percent less CO2 than the F12 Berlinetta. Additional details on the model are limited and are expected to be announced during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where the supercar might debut.
