Spy Shots: Ferrari F150 Testing on Public Roads
The chances to catch a supercar testing on public roads are pretty few, so when it happens, we get pretty excited. We are doubly excited when we are talking about an Italian supercar that everyone is anxiously awaiting. People may call it in different things — F70, F150, etc. — but we all know it as the new "Ferrari Enzo."
The new F150 — we strongly hope this won’t be the final name — will be powered by a 6.3-liter V-12 hybrid drivetrain dubbed the HY-KERS system. This system will deliver a total of 920 horsepower and will considerably improve the car’s performance numbers when compared to the original Enzo. For example, the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) will be reduced by 10 percent to 6.5 seconds.
The new Ferrari F150 is expected to be unveiled in March at the Geneva Motor Show and when it hits showrooms, it will take on models like McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. The only downside is that it will be limited to only 500 units.
As you can clearly see from the spy shots, the F150 is still not near completion, as it still features that odd-looking fascia, which looks almost like a largemouth bass about to gobble up a worm. The backside, on the other hand, looks like it is just some mild adjustments away from being in production form. With the Geneva Auto Show sneaking up, Ferrari needs to get this beast all wrapped up soon.
We’ll keep you updated!
