Fortunately for all of us car enthusiasts, Ferrari never seems to be happy. Seriously, no other company has the ability to make their fastest production car ever, and then decide to bring back a next-generation version of the car it was faster than. If you don’t get where I’m going, I’m talking about Ferrari’s chairman Luca di Montezemolo announcing “At the end of the year, we’ll also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first ever hybrid car.”
So, let’s get this straight. Not only do sources claim that the new brainchild of Ferrari will have a 6.3-liter V12 engine which creates 920 bhp, but it’s also going to be a hybrid? From the sound of that this car is not only going to be a hybrid car, but also a clear-cut hypercar, designed to take on competition such as the ground-shattering Bugatti Veyron.
Right about now, you’re probably asking yourself, ‘How can such an eye-wateringly (that is a word, right?) fast car be a hybrid?’ Well that is a good question, one that requires a long physics lecture. MotorTrend claims that it will be possible by a KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) drivetrain. You may have also heard of KERS if you are an avid Formula 1 fan.
Put all the facts together and you should come up with something like this. A big, 6.3-liter V12, 920 horsepower, a hybrid, and a KERS drivetrain. Also, it’s the new Enzo. This should be interesting.
