Ferrari F70 to weigh 1,100 kg image

The Ferrari F70 will weigh just 1,100 kg and the model will make its public debut in spring 2013, probably during the Geneva Motor Show.

The newest model to enter Ferrari’s lineup, the F70, which is also being known as the F150, is ending up in our news once again, this time with a rumor which is saying that the supercar will use a lot carbon fiber in order to weigh just 1,100 kg. In order to reach this “target”, Ferrari will fit the F70 with a fixed chair and the only ones to be adjustable will be the steering column and the pedals, a technique inspired from Formula 1.

A 70 kg carbon fiber monocoque will be used by the successor of the iconic Enzo and the model will get a 6.3 liter V12 engine under its hood, which will produce more than 750 HP (559 kW), compared to the 731 HP (545 kW) in the F12 Berlinetta. The petrol burner will be backed up by an electric motor, which will provide an extra 100 HP (74 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (200 lb-ft). The model will emit 40 less CO2 compared to the F12 Berlinetta. Additional details on the supercar are limited and will be announced close to its debut.
