After last week’s announcement that the Italian automaker Ferrari is planning on topping off their lineup of exotic dream machines with an all new super car to head up the high performance lineup and celebrate nearly 70 years of success with a car that is currently codenamed the F70. The new super car will serve as a successor to the Enzo and there are also rumors flying around that it will also be offered as a hybrid.

Like the lightweight Mille Chili concept, Ferrari will focus on reducing the next generation halo car’s mass in an attempt to increase speed and handling without necessarily having to force more air and fuel into the F70’s combustion chambers. The way it looks now, the F70 will be based around a compact footprint and weigh in at no more than 1,000 kilograms. Meanwhile under the rear deck lid there is rumored to sit a supercharged V8 making a maximum output of 700 HP when it is unveiled in 2012. Like Enzo Ferrari always said, build one less then you think you can sell, so the very special F70 will be limited to only 399 units.

Ferrari F70 is really impressive and a nice sports vehicle, but I would still prefer Ferrari Enzo. Anyway, I’m glad that this one is also had a powerful engine output just like the other cars had.

There was a time that I would be skeptical with ideas like supercars being on hybrid as the idea back then was if you go hybrid, you may lose your engine power and performance. But with today’s technology , I’d say that they might be able to pull off a good car that is as powerful and fast as the car lines that it has.

F70 within Ferrari and is being tested with two very different powertrains. One option is a smaller twin-turbo V-8 engine said to be outputting around 700 horsepower and the other is a twin-turbo V-12 unit with an additional 50 to 100 horsepower.

compromise between the cost-effective approach successfully developed with GT3, the detailed technical regulations of GT2 and the need to have distinctive cars, 2010 GT1 cars can be specifically built, an evolution of existing GT3 cars or a 2010 GT2 car with a performance kit.
