Ferrari F70/ F150 aka Enzo successor: first specs released

Article by Christian A., on February 1, 2013

Several pertinent details about Ferrari's still-to-be-named Enzo successor were unveiled after it was shown to a select group of customers. Unfortunately, no pictures of the car were taken or posted online. At an enthusiast website FerrariChat, a fan posted that the Enzo successor will feature a hybrid drivetrain that will consist of an evolved version of the 6.3-liter V12 engine used in the f12berlinetta and a Formula 1-derived Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KRS).

When combined, these enable the distribution of 950hp to the rear set of wheels. As a result, the super car can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in only three seconds. It could also hit a top speed of 229 mph. The KERS system will add about 330 pounds to the car, raising the total weight to about 2,820 pounds. This car is known internally as the F150.

It will make use of a carbon-fiber monocoque built by Ferrari's Formula 1 division. Its body is composed of four different types of carbon fibers, leading to a 27% increase in torsional rigidity compared to the Enzo. Ferrari said that the cockpit will come with a fixed driver's seat that will be customized for every buyer. Both the pedal box and the steering wheel will be adjustable.

From a few spied images, we know that the car has a long and low shape with a wide front grille. Ferrari’s newest product has some of the styling features of the Enzo and the f12berlinetta. This supercar is slated to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It’s highly exclusive, with only 499 samples of the supercar to be assembled. Each has a price tag of about €1.2 million, which is about $1.6 million.
