More details on the Ferrari F70 were revealed


The Ferrari Enzo will be replaced by a new and improved model. All this will happen next spring when we will all have the opportunity to see it for the first time. If you do not know already, the Ferrari F70, also known as the F150 will be made of a lot of carbon fiber in comparison with the McLaren P1. The new model will come after the 2005 FFX that had as base the 2007 Millechili technical concept developed by Ferrari.



The new Ferrari F70 will have a very light central monocoque made of carbon fiber; it is actually 20% lighter than the one the Enzo has. Under the hood it will hide a 6.3-liter V12 engine capable of generating 750 horsepower. Just for comparison, the F12 Berlinetta is capable of producing 731 horsepower. The Italian specialists will also provide an electric motor that will provide another 100 horsepower and almost 270 Nm of torque. The bad news is that it will not be capable of running on electric mode alone. The Hy-KERS hybrid system of the F70 will lower the 0.125 mph sprint time by 10%. This is not all it will do. According to CEO Amedeo Felisa the CO2 emission level will also be lowered by up to 40% in comparison with the car that does not have this system installed. The Italian might also offer roof-hinged doors and a seat molded as a bespoke unit for every buyer. Different sources indicate the fact that the controls will be located on the steering wheel. This way 90 kg will be saved. The F70 will have a centrally mounted V12 engine that will be found ahead of the rear axle. To transfer the output to the wheels the engineers have fitted an all new dual clutch transmission and differential. The batteries will be found behind the driver who will sit upright. His feet will be raised a bit, just like when sitting in a racecar. These are all the details revealed by the carmaker so far. Source: worldcarfans
