The Ferrari F70, which is mostly known as the successor of the iconic Enzo, has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested on public roads.
The Italian based automaker Ferrari is currently working on the development of the successor to the Enzo model and the supercar is known for now as the F70. The Ferrari F70 has started its life back in 2011 as a simple rumor but right after that the Maranello carmaker has confirmed it for production and has also announced that it will get a hybrid powertrain. Ferrari might pull a surprise on everyone and bring the new F70 to this month’s Paris Motor Show but there are no details on this just yet.
The all-new Ferarri F70 will use a hybrid powertrain made out of a large V12 petrol engine and two electric motors, mated to a double clutch transmission. Rumors are saying that the first electric motor will be used as a generator, for capturing the kinetic energy and sending it to the lithium-ion battery back, and the second one will charge the auxiliary systems. The Ferrari F70 will get 920 HP out of its hybrid powertrain and thanks to its total weight of 1,234 kg (2,500 lbs), it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds. If it won’t be brought to the Paris Motor Show, the Ferrari F70 will most likely be presented next year, in Geneva.
