New Ferrari Enzo HY-KERS Hybrid will shave 3 seconds off the standard 0-124mph sprint time
A few weeks ago, we reported that the next Ferrari Enzo will be powered by the same V12 engine as the recently announced F12 Berlinetta. This engine will be combined with a 120 HP electric motor for a total output of 920 HP. Now for the better part of that announcement. When equipped with the new "HY-KERS" hybrid system, the future Enzo will shave three seconds off of the standard Enzo’s 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) sprint time of 9.5 seconds!
This blistering 0-124mph sprint time of 6.5 seconds will be obtained even though the new HY-KERS system adds 264 lbs to the car’s total weight. To compensate with the extra power, Ferrari will cut weight from the car’s chassis and powertrain by using the same grade of carbon fiber found in Ferrari’s F1 cars. Compared to a standard Ferrari model not equipped with this system, the future Enzo Hy-Kers will also decrease fuel consumption by about 40%.
"We are entering the market with our Formula One-derived hybrid system, which will slash fuel consumption and increase performance," Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa said in an interview with Automotive News.
