Ferrari Goes Hybrid for Fastest Car Ever

New LaFerrari a nearly 1,000-hp replacement for old Enzo.

by on Mar.05, 2013

The new LaFerrari borrows heavily from the maker's successful Formula One race program.

If your idea of a hybrid looks something like the Toyota Prius, something that’s more fuel-efficient than fun-to-drive, you may need an attitude readjustment after getting a look at the new LaFerrari, the long-awaited replacement for the Italian automaker’s former flagship, the Enzo.

This is definitely not your typical gas-electric drivetrain, though the maker insists it will substantially reduce emissions and fuel consumption compared to a conventional drivetrain. Of course, there aren’t many out there that can churn out to nearly 1,000 horsepower.

During a presentation at the Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari President Luca di Montezemelo described the new model as the “maximum expression of what defines our company….all the capabilities of our know-how,” adding that the LaFerrari “represents the future” for one of the world’s most respected sports car manufacturers.

Most powerful prancing pony ever.

Ferrari offers a tease of the F620 GT, which it claims to be the most powerful model it has ever developed.

Ferrari is offering the briefest of teases giving us a blurry look at the new F620 GT – which the automaker promises will be its most powerful model ever.

The rear-drive, V-12-powered supercar will serve as the replacement for the outgoing 599.  Plans call for the official unveiling at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, but the maker now says it will stage an advance preview on February 29th.

News You Can Use!

With its 6.3-liter engine making an estimated 740 horsepower, the Ferrari F620 GT should blow by just about anything the Modenese maker has ever produced before, save perhaps the Enzo in fact, one report claims the new model cut a full second off the Enzo’s lap time at the Fiorano race track.


First Look: Ferrari FF

A practical Ferrari?

Ferrari goes practical with the new FF.

A practical Ferrari?  If the very concept doesn’t scare you off, read on for more about the Italian automaker’s newest offering, which is making its world premiere at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

There will be plenty who view the new Ferrari FF as an oxymoron, no doubt.  But there’s no question the maker from Maranello wanted to do more than just evolve the outgoing 612.  Instead, it has come up with a wagon, er hatchback, er shooting brake.  Well, expect a lot of different descriptions to apply to what might be thought of as Ferrari’s interpretation of the Porsche Panamera.

In the Know!

While the looks might take a while to grow on you, the new FF otherwise lives up to its pedigree.  It’s the most powerful 4-seater the Italian marque has ever produced, a direct-injects 6.3-liter V12 under the FF’s long, low hood, churning out 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque.  You’ll see 60 in less than 3.7 seconds, Ferrari claims, on the way to a top speed of 208 mph.
