First a leaked document revealed important details on the future Veyron GT. Now, Ferrari has fallen into the trap: a confidential document revealed details ont he future FX70, Enzo’s successor.
The engine will be an aluminum V8, mounted longitudinal position, with double-compressor and approved for stringent Euro V emission standards. The body is made out of carbon fiber and a monocoque chassis. A seven speed double clutch gearbox will be used with reported changing time of only 50 milliseconds.
The perspective numbers are exactly what you’d expect from a top Ferrari: 794 hp and 570 ft.lbs of torque. 0 to 60 mph sprint takes only 2.7 seconds, and a top speed of 242 mph. Weight: only 1.300 kilos. Price: 1,200,000 / 1,400,000 euros (between $1.7 and $2 million at current exchange rates.)
These kind of figures put this Ferrari in some exclusive company, but the numbers aren’t better than the Veryon. Will this hurt sales, or will the company be able to sell the car on the prancing horse alone?
