Ferrari Enzo Successor

Posted on 11 June, 2012

The Ferrari Enzo successor will have the Ferrari V12 HY-KERS Powertrain hybrid powertrain unveiled yesterday at the Beijing Motor Show. This couples a Ferrari V12, rumoured to measure 7.3 liters with two electric motors. The V12 will give 800hp and the electric motors will boost this by 120hp to give a total figure of 920hp. This places the Ferrari Enzo just short of the Veyron in terms of power, yet in a market of its own as one of the worlds most powerful hybrid engines.

The car will use carbon fiber and aluminium extensively to keep weight down to an incredible 1,130kg, over 200kg lighter than the Enzo. This will mean a power to weight ratio of 0.81hp per kilogram which can be compared to the Enzo’s 0.48hp figure and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 0.64hp figure. As the powertrain’s name also suggests, the KERS regenerative braking system utilised in Formula 1 will play a part in the F70′s power systems.
