[UPDATE: LaFerrari is official, read all about it here!] - After much speculation, it’s been confirmed that the replacement for the Ferrari Enzo will appear at the Geneva Motor Show. According to Ferrari’s press site, a “limited edition special series car” will be displayed in Geneva. These are the same words that Ferrari used to describe its carbon fiber tub concept that was seen at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
This could only mean that this car is the new Enzo. Of course, Ferrari has long been sending out teasers for a new hypercar. Ferrari makes this announcement shortly after a supposedly official Instagram (which was later proclaimed fake) had released a teaser image with some confirmation.
The truth is that Ferrari doesn’t have an official Instagram account. For the official confirmation, Ferrari released a short paragraph and a photograph of a prancing horse badge on the car’s front clip.
So far, not a lot of details have been released about this vehicle. For starters, it may be named either F70 or F150 if Ferrari’s F1 naming protocol is followed. It’s likely that the next ultra-Ferrari will use the latest version of Ferrari’s HY-KERS hybrid system, which combines a V-12 engine with an electric motor.
There are conflicting reports that this combined system output will have an output of either 850 hp (730 hp from the V-12, 120 hp from the motor) or 920 hp (800 hp from the V-12, 120 hp from the motor). Regardless of which one it is, it’s sure to have an impact on its rival, the McLaren P1 that claims to deliver 903 hp.
