There have been all kinds of rumors about what kind of beast will power the upcoming Ferrari Enzo, starting with the first rumor of a turbocharged V8 engine and going up to a hybrid V12 engine. Now, MotorTrend is stating the engine will be the same 6.3-liter V12 found in the F12 Berlinetta. Sorry, F12 Berlinetta, but your reign won’t last long, because the future Enzo will end up being the most powerful Ferrari available with an incredible 920 HP.
This would mean that previous rumors stating the shared 6.3L V12 engine were correct, but output was miscalculated. The next Enzo - or F70 as it is codenamed - will get a tuned engine delivering 800 HP - and not 740 HP as in the F12. When combined with the 120 HP electric motor, the new Enzo will deliver a total of 920 HP. With a total weight of around 2550 lbs, the new Enzo will easily beat the Veyron’s 0 to 62mph sprint time of 2.46 seconds.
Expect to see the new Ferrari Enzo launched in March 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show. When it goes on sale, it will start off at about $700,000.
