Ferrari teases the F70 supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 18, 2012

In the new issue of Ferrari Magazine, two teaser images of the F70 were released – one front and one rear. This appears to have been done in response to leaked photos of the F70 last month. On the front cover of Ferrari Magazine 19, there is a shadowy teaser of the front end. This is a match to the fuzzy dealer-meeting image that came out last month on Weibo (China’s Twitter). However, as soon as one opens the magazine’s cover, it shows the car from the rear view.

The rear end’s T shape is created by two circular taillamps with a rear lip spoiler extending between the two. It also has a protruding rear fascia that goes down to the diffuser, making it appear as a more dramatic version of the f12berlinetta supercar.

But with the F70, it seems as if the square at the bottom of the bumper isn’t an F1-inspired rear foglamp. Instead, it’s a center-exit exhaust. Those who get excited about the one-off Ferrari creations will distinguish several shapes from a previous creation -- the Pininfarina P4/5. It suggests that the new F70 will be a curvier version of that Enzo-based car, particularly from the rear end.

It’s speculated that the car will use a 920-hp hybrid system (which consists of a 120-hp electric motor and an 800-hp V-12). Its body is composed of various thicknesses and strengths of carbon fiber. It’s estimated that its total curb weight will be less than 3000 pounds, while the final price will likely cost at least a million dollars. It’s expected that it will be introduced at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show.
