At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari unveiled the Vettura Laboratorio HY-KERS - the company’s first attempt to create a hybrid vehicle. Now in an interview with Autocar, Ferrari boss Amedeo Felisa has confirmed that the Italian company is working on a V12 hybrid engine that will most likely make its debut in the upcoming Enzo. This hybrid engine comes as a followup to the V12 used in the new F12 Berlinetta, which Ferrari has called “the first in a new generation of V12s.”

"We will roll out new technology that is there first and foremost to introduce a green factor to our cars and ensure that we can keep our product where it is in terms of CO2."

According to Amedeo Felisa, this system won’t just be used to increase the total output, but will be a good way to save energy. The company’s new technology is expensive at the moment, but Ferrari hopes it will find a solution to reduce costs in the near future and use it for all Ferrari models.

"I’m not saying when, but it is possible that this technology will be on all Ferraris. It has been designed to fit all our future architecture, and if we go ahead it will be fitted as standard. It is not the sort of thing you offer as an option."

I think Ferrari has the key to change the mindset of people when it comes to hybrid cars. I’m expecting them to do some miracles about this.

The possibility of producing a super hybrid car from them is big because they have made some great innovations in their cars. This will be their one of the biggest tests in making a super car that will generate a power that no other car could do.

No worries because I know that a great Ferrari could do all the impossible in perfect time. When is the perfect time for Hybrid? Ferrari only knows and when they tell us when, we must believe.

This will test out their capability in producing this type of a car. If ever, I think the most powerful hybrid car will come from them.

Ferrari’s name will never fade even if it’s gone (hope not though) if they’ll succeed on taking over the hybrid cars market too.

Now, we will find out if Ferrari is brilliant as well in producing hybrid cars. I usually see friendly fascias of this type of automotive, but I guess with Ferrari, there will be an addition to cars with intimidating front.
