Rumours: 2012 Ferrari F70 – Enzo Successor

Rumours 2012 Ferrari F70 - Enzo Successor

According to Road&Track, there are some ambitious plans for the successor of the Enzo. The Italian supercar maker plans a mid-engine supercar with only one goal; outperforming the Enzo in combination with being considerably more efficient to comply with emissions standards. So that means less weight, smaller engine and a more compact setup.

They do expect extensive use of carbon fiber on the vehicle achieving the ultimate performance. The target weight for the rumoured F70 is around 1000kg.

Regarding the engine the latest word is that the F70 will switch back to a twin-turbo V8. Only the F70’s direct-injected engine will use the very latest technologies to eliminate turbo lag, achieve 670–700bhp yet return excellent (for a Ferrari) fuel mileage and low emissions. A hybrid powertrain seems to be unlikely for the F70. The F70 should reach 60mph in less than 3 seconds. The target top speed of over 230mph is reached using an array of drag-reducing active aerodynamic features.

This information follows after rumours going around for some months now. We have to wait and see until more information is being unveiled, however the setup seems to be promising.
