In a matter of weeks, the successor to the Ferrari Enzo will debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It’s called the F150 internally at Ferrari, but there’s a lot more to the car than it’s obscure code-name.
First, as the successor to the Enzo, the F150 will sport an impressive powertrain which pairs the HY-KERS hybrid system from the brand’s F1 vehicles, with a V12 engine good for around 900 hp. The F150 should have a 0-60 mph sprint in around 2.5 seconds and a 0-124 mph dash of about 8.5 seconds.
Thanks to the car’s use of hybrid tech and a lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque shell, the new car will manage a 40 percent reduction in CO2 emissions.
Expect a vehicle that looks similar in body style to the old car, yet more trim and fit. The price-tag will come somewhere around $1.3 million. That much money will reportedly get a car that can run the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, a feat no other production car has managed.
Buyers will also get the car custom-fit to them, as the seat is in a fixed position, with only the pedal box and steering wheel being adjustable. Most of the controls are believed to be mounted on the steering wheel, similar to what would be found in a race car. As a whole, the car is aiming to be the most F1-like driving experience possible, even in terms of the styling judging by the teaser photos that Ferrari provided.
The vehicle also uses a new dual-clutch transmission with the differential designed to allow the transmission to be mounted lower, so that the heavy crankshaft is located below the center of the rear wheels.
