The Italian based automaker has brought the body of the F70 to the Paris Motor Show, where it was officially presented to the public for the first time.
The fact that Ferrari is working on an official successor of the Enzo is no longer a surprise for anyone but this is the first time when the Maranello based automaker is revealing the body of the supercar. When compared to the Enzo, the F70 is 22 percent stiffer and 20 percent lighter according to Ferrari and these achievements have been accomplished thanks to the Scuderia Ferrari F1 engineers who have designed the body of the upcoming supercar.
The Ferrari F70 will get a hybrid powertrain under its hood which will be made out of a large V12 petrol engine and two electric motors, mated to a double clutch transmission. The first electric motor will be used as a generator for capturing the kinetic energy and sending it to the lithium-ion battery pack and the second one will charge the auxiliary systems. The total output developed by the hybrid Ferrari is expected to be 920 horsepower, which will help the supercar accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment.
