Ferrari F70 to debut in spring 2013 image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari is planning to unveil the F70 supercar next spring and the model is expected to be a direct rival for the upcoming McLaren P1.

The Ferrari F70, which has been codenamed internally as the F150, has started its public life as a simple rumor earlier this year and now the supercar is closer than ever to hitting the showrooms. The Ferrari F70 is expected to be officially presented to the public in spring 2013, possibly during the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The successor of the iconic Enzo will use a 70 kg carbon fiber monocoque and the model will be powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine, which will produce more than 750 horsepower (559 kW), compared to the 731 (545 kW) in the F12 Berlinetta. The Ferrari F70 will also get an electric motor which should provide an extra 100 HP (74 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (200 lb-ft).

The Ferrari F70 will be able to run in electric mode exclusively and the electric motor will also help the model emit 40 less CO2 compared to the version of the car without it. Additional details on the Ferrari F70 are limited for the moment and will be announced next spring.
