Next Enzo, 599, and Scaglietti will get V12 hybrid powertrain
While talking about the future roadster version of the Ferrari 599 with the British magazine Auto Express, Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo also offered a few details on the company’s future hybrid plans.
During the interview, Luca di Montezemolo said: "The future for Ferrari is hybrid for the 12-cylinder and new [turbocharged] technology for the eight-cylinder. Within three-four years we will be ready with a V12 hybrid based on the HY-KERS concept."
Translated this means that the successor for the Enzo, the next 599, and the Scaglietti, will be powered by smaller-capacity V12s mated to electric motors to boost efficiency.
For the Vettura Laboratorio HY-KERS, the powertrain combines a V12 engine with an electric motor producing more than 100 Hp and is coupled to the rear of the dual-clutch 7-speed F1 transmission.
Internally known as the F70, the next Enzo will combine elements from the FXX Mille-Chili lightweight concept, the 599XX track car, and the 458 Italia. The F70 will be a very light car with a total weight of about 2200 lbs making the 0 to 60 mph sprint in less than 3 seconds, while top speed will go up to more than 230 mph.
