Ferrari Chairman, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, has been providing a few clues as to what Ferrari’s next flagship model will feature. In an interview with AutoWeek, he provided a few general snippets of information that give us a little guidance as to what we can expect from the hypercar and from Ferrari generally in the future.
Of the car Ferrari hopes to unveil in 2012, Montezemolo said;
It will incorporate the state of the art of our knowledge in terms of increasing performances while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. It will then influence all Ferraris that appear after it.
The new car will likely use the gasoline-hybrid technology debuted at this years Geneva Motorshow. It is rumoured to share design ideas from the 2007 Millechili concept too! Expect a smaller, lighter, faster hypercar!
Quizzed about his own role at the company, he said;
I want to shape the next product cycle at Ferrari to assure a bright future at a company that has been inextricably intertwined with my life. In my future I see fast cars and fast trains – and no politics.
Please Ferrari – let it be…
Customers and environment don´t care about emissions of a few supercars ;)
Please build a car like the Enzo for 2011: Formula 1 technic, naturally aspirated V12, stunning look and a racecar-like handling, as the Enzo was ;)
Honestly this is all rubbish. why does a ferrari enzo replacement need fuel economy? are you going to go shopping with it? its something you may ride once a week if not a month at a track or something. fuel economy is not a matter.
same bullshit porsche gave the 918.
What a shame, what a fail from Ferrari.
I hope this hybrid project will never be released.
I have to tell you guys, i read in top gear a couple of months ago that there will be new regulations about emissions in Europe that will be applied since 2012-2013, and the supercar manufactors wont get away with it so easy. That is the reason that Porsche 918 was published. If they start creating projects like 918 they will keep doing there job(ferrari 458,merc sls,mclaren mp4,etc).
