What do a Ferrari Enzo and a Bugatti Veyron have in common? Until recently, the only similarity was the fact that they were rivals, but new rumors suggest that the next generation Enzo will be inspired by shapes in the Veyron’s design. Guess Ferrari is feeling the heat a bit, huh?
The new Enzo, set to be revealed in late 2012 will feature new-generation aerodynamic technology, including "active aerodynamics" that pump air out through the body to influence the way airflows over and under the skin. Rumors say that Ferrari will place a direct-injection twin-turbocharged V8 engine under the hood , but it is also believed that the next Enzo will use the same gasoline-hybrid technology found in the Vettura Laboratorio HY-KERS concept .
"The world is a very different place to how it was when the Enzo was launched. It has moved on completely. And we are Ferrari – we do not take part to make up the numbers," said Ferrari officials in an interview with AutoCar.
