Enzo’s successor to be powered by V8 engine?
Ferrari has already announced that they are working on a successor for the Enzo supercar. Now, they have also announced that it will be launched in 2012 and will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine.
Ferrari GT technical director Roberto Fedeli confirmed that the Italian sports-car maker is investigating both V12 and V8 options for its Enzo successor.
"For us, it’s not just a question of power. We have to choose whether we maintain the shape of the weight-to-power curve of the Enzo with more power or with less weight," Fedeli said. "If we do a [2200-pound] car with the same weight-to-power ratio as the FXX, then you want to save the maximum weight. The best packaging for that kind of car is an eight-cylinder turbo. That would have to be an all-new V8."
