It has been quite some time since we last heard anything about the amazing Ferrari P4/5 Competizione, but today rumors took root on the web that piqued our interest. According to RacingWorld.de, the supercar will be making another appearance at this year’s 24 hours of Nürburgring, but this time, it will combine a hybrid drive system with a 4.0L V8 engine.

At this point, there aren’t many details available, but it is believed that the V8 engine will be assisted by a Magneti Marelli electric motor that will add another 80 HP. If it is being matched up with the V8 from the one and only P4/5 Competizione, then we’re looking at 563 HP. This change will improve the car’s lap time by about six seconds. In fact, this new hybrid system is very similar to the KERS system used in the Toro Rosso and Red Bull Formula 1 cars.

Whether or not this engine modification will be combined with exterior upgrades is yet unknown, but we’ll keep our eyes and ears open. Stay tuned!

Ferrari P4/5 vehicle is really perfect for a car competition. A new hybrid system drive and engine power performance make this car more interesting.

This car is magnificent! The contours are excellent, with the glossy jet black finish it looks like the bat mobile.

What a hybrid car! This concept is very excellent on style. It looks like Batman’s type of vehicle. I thought that this car was a space ship when transformed.

It looks like Batman’s vehicle because of the same appearance as well as the black body paint on it. This is another great concept of Ferrari that would show more interest from the viewers.

I do hope that it will be produced soon. I want to see this concept at the Expo. All I can say is that it has a strong road presence making it more appealing to look at.

I think it will be much better if this will be produced rather than a concept at all. Take a look at this car, it’s very well-designed and upgraded into it’s new version. This is definitely awesome when on the road.

Well, it’s good to hear what was going on the Ferrari. The Hybrid concept is good, and it will be best if they produced it and never remains a concept. The combination of a Hybrid and a V8 engine is quite nice. I do have hopes in this wonderful project, until the next Ferrari project.
