Ferrari released more details about the much-awaited Enzo successor. Ferrari confirmed that it will be powered by a variant of the V12 6.3-liter 740 HP (544 kW) in the F12 Berlinetta, together with an enhanced version of the HY-KERS electric hybrid system that made its debut in 2010 at the Geneva Motor Show.
The hybrid version is described as a “performance enhancer" that offers a method to reduce emissions. Ferrari claims that accelerating from zero to 200 km/h (0-124 mph) will take 10% less time with this system. This also aids in reducing CO2 emissions by 40%. In addition, the HY-KERS system will improve the torque vectoring system, traction control and brake force distribution since it will be linked with the chassis electronics.
Furthermore, Ferrari asserts that the F150's electric motor/ancillaries/battery unit has a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1. The successor of the Enzo will be built using a carbon fiber monocoque that uses four different types of the lightweight material which will be hand-laminated and will aid in raising torsional rigidity by 27% while it increases beam stiffness by 22%. The fuel tank and batteries will be installed at the back of the driver in order to reduce the center of gravity.
The F150 and the 458 Italia are of the same height at 1213mm or 47.8 inches. They also have the same wheelbase at 2650mm or 104.3 inches. This is quite surprising since it is powered by a big V12 HY-KERS engine attached to a dual-clutch gearbox.
Ferrari will build the interior cabin around the driver and it will feature a fixed seat that will be assembled depending on the customer’s dimensions. Meanwhile, the steering wheel and pedal box can be adjusted. Those who drive this vehicle get the racing feeling due to a low center of gravity and the backrest inclination. What adds to this feeling is the position of the occupant's feet being at the same level as the driving position.
