Ferrari to unveil Enzo replacement coming to the 2013 Detroit Auto Show

Article by Anita Panait, on March 13, 2012

Ferrari will unveil at the end of 2012 the replacement for its Enzo supercar to a chosen few, which include a group of potential and current customers, according to Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. The Ferrari chairman told Automotive News Europe on the sidelines of the Geneva Auto Show that they want to surprise people not just in terms of price but also with the car. 

The company has yet to decide when to unveil the new model to the public. A Ferrari spokesman revealed that they are considering unveiling the new model in January 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show or in March 2013 at the next Geneva Auto Show.

The new model will no longer carry the Enzo name, because the Enzo model was a limited-edition model. The new model, however, will be the company’s fastest and most powerful road car ever, exceeding the recently unveiled F12 Berlinetta. The new EUR271,000 F12 Berlinetta delivers up to 740 hp, slightly lower than Formula One cars, whose outputs are estimated to be between 740 hp and 750 hp. 

Montezemolo compared the new model to the F1 cars, saying that the company is offering F1 power in a road car. The new model will be built with a carbon fiber body, and will be powered by a normally aspirated V-12.

The company has yet to decide how many units of the model they will produce. If we look at history, Ferrari built 399 Enzos from 2002-2011, and 349 units of the F50, Enzo’s predecessor, from 1995-2001. 

Montezemolo forecasts that Ferrari will post sales of more than 7,000 supercars in 2012, but did not specify whether the company would surpass its record in 2011, when it sold 7,195 units. The company posted a three-percent jump in trading profit to EUR312 million in 2011. The Ferrari chairman also forecasted the company will improve its profit figures in 2012 and years to come.
