Ferrari CEO confirms Enzo’s hybrid successor

Article by Christian A., on May 15, 2012

To discuss the performance of Ferrari S.p.A. for the first quarter of 2012, the Board of Directors (with chairman Luca di Montezemol) held a meeting. Ferrari’s results as of March 31, 2012, were exceptional. It reported a 13.2% increase in revenues to 556.1 million euros. It delivered 1,733 cars to the dealership network, an 11.5% increase compared to the same period last year.

These results were influenced by the success of the 12-cylinder FF and the persistent demand for the 8-cylinder models, such as the Ferrari California (the company's best-selling GT) and the coupé and spider versions of the 458 that dominate the sports car segment.

All Ferrari owners personalize their Ferrari models. Since 2012 started, they have been able to take advantage of the Tailor Made programme, which enables each client to tailor their own bespoke car with the use of a broad variety of unique and exclusive materials, colors and finishes, with the help of a specialist team.

These results are not affected by the F12berlinetta as deliveries will start only in the second part of the year. The F12berlinetta is the most powerful and high performance Ferrari ever produced.

It’s also the first in a new generation of V12s. It saw its trading profit increase by 13.4% to 60.5 million euro, while net profits increased by 17.2% (42.1 million euro). Ferrari's Chairman Luca di Montezemolo said that its amazing results in 2011, coupled with rising economic indicators, is “very satisfying indeed.”

He said that its complete new model range is filled with technological successes. The range also offers with each falling by an average of 30%. He explained that at the end of 2012, it will soon unveil the new Enzo, a limited series series model and its first ever hybrid car."

Ferrari frequently delivers a model that speaks of the fusion of its innovative learning and its athletic background. The Ferrari 250 LM was the pioneer model of its series in 1963. It was created by the Ferrari architect particularly for the owner-driver and was purposely intended for hustling. The Ferrari GTO (1984), the Ferrari F40 (1987) and for Ferrari's 50th birthday, the Ferrari F50 (1995), have been the noteworthy developments in its history.

Each of these limited release autos had a particular innovative message that improved the model's performance. In 2002 Luca di Montezemolo displayed the Ferrari Enzo which combined four sequential years of matchless quality in the Constructor's World Championship to the technical knowledge and precise fine adjustment feel of the World Champion Michael Schumacher.


Montezemelo said that the Ferrari Enzo is a timeless car for the Prancing Horse for a lot of different reasons. And because of that, they had to pick a name with a strong relation to the brand and that was the company founder's name. He added that with carbon and composite materials, an F1 gearbox, and V12 engine with 5998 cc, the Ferrari Enzo which will be manufactured at only 399 units and is the outcome of four straight years of being Formula 1 champs.

This is on account of the reason that the race track itself has been housing the most impressive levels of innovation representing a one-of-a kind auto which is completely inventive and stands for the Ferrari's core from past to present and looks forward to the future of Ferrari.

Based on this substantial information, the point was to build a vehicle as an incorporated framework that aims at accomplishing outstanding performance. This is a framework where driver performance limits could be enhanced through a Formula 1 man/machine interface. The new Ferrari Enzo demanded a unique and extensive technical coordination effort among Brembo, Bridgestone, Magneti Marelli and OMR.
