Ferrari placed the F70 Enzo Successor’s chassis on display at the Paris Motor Show 2012. The Enzo successor was expected to be revealed this year, however, it’s clear now that Ferrari will not be displaying their new flagship model. The chassis you see in the pictures has been developed with the help of Rory Byrne, a leading Formula 1 expert.

Obviously, the new monocoque is cutting edge technology. It is said to be 20 percent lighter and but 27 percent stiffer than the Enzo’s chassis. A nomex honeycomb structure has been used which is sandwiched between two layers of hi-grade carbon fiber. Ferrari fitted a Kevlar protective plate on to the underside of the body, which protects components placed below the monocoque.

Despite the monocoque’s reduction in overall weight, the hybrid drive system will add weight to the package overall which means that overall, the F70 should come in at just below 1,365kg. Expect the Ferrari F70 to feature more than 900hp thanks to a 7.3 liter V12 engine and an electric motor. Perfect specs for a sub-three second zero to 100km/h time and a top speed in excess of 354km/h!
