New Details Ferrari F150 aka Enzo Successor

A number of new details have been released regarding Ferrari’s new flagship, the Ferrari F150 aka Enzo Successor. The information coming Autocar stated that the engine performance will reach a maximum of 850 to 900bhp and that the dry weight is only 1,100kg, 265kg lighter than reported earlier. According to company sources, the vehicle will be a true road-legal competition sports car.

Ferrari told the magazine that the whole car from the radical race-car driving position to the radical active aerodynamics will take the driving experience even closer to the fabled idea of a Formula 1 car for the road. The use of carbon fiber is evident after we saw the new monocoque in Paris two months ago. 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.

The mid-engine two-seater supercar will have a more fuel economic setup including a Formula 1-style KERS hybrid system. The electric motor is integral to a new torque-vectoring system. The total performance of the 7.3 liter V12 engine will be around 900hp, which means the F70 will have the highest horsepower of any street-legal Ferrari ever made. The F150’s CO2 emissions are claimed to be as much as 40 percent lower than would have been the case with the new V12 engine on its own. The engine features a new dual-clutch gearbox and a differential design.

Entering the supercar means opening the roof-hinged doors like the Enzo. The seating position for the driver is fixed in the monocoque and the seat itself will be moulded for the driver as a bespoke unit. The driver sits upright and his feet will also be raised up, race-car style.

    @lukas
    No-no-no lambo fanboy, don’t try to run and hide behind some lame excuses now. You lambo fanboys have had enough fun with your aventador and now it’s time for Ferrari to crash the party once again. The Ferrari F70 will be in direct competition with the aventador, end of! Both cars will represent the highest level of both companies, so they are direct rivals. No excuses, no hiding, no BS, no nothing… Ferrari will come and crush the lambo without mercy, plain and simple. Oh I can’t wait!

    Too bad I will probably be able to drive it faster than most of the people who will buy this car.

  3. That looks awesome.

    werty – They won’t ….. and they can’t call it the F150 . Ferrari already lost that little battle in the courts and Ford isn’t about to back down anytime soon .. guaranteed ! Somebodies got their signals crossed !

    As to the car ? Looks like a pastiche of the Enzo and a 458 . Has an overly complicated KER’s system coming from a company already known for its Car-BQ tendencies . Has a ‘ To be determined ‘ amount of HP which is Ferrari speak for not nearly enough . Conclusion ? Buy a Koenigsegg or the Pagani and really get something for your money other than another Ferrari F1 wanna be for the road …. that isn’t .

    ferrari are playing with the media with vogue information about their next hyper. I think the power output will be close to 1000bhp as the f150 is based on the fxx, which makes 860bhp. I don’t think ferrari will again make a mistake as they did for the f50.

    @Richard you cant really compare this to the Lamborghinis…..this will be double the Aventadors price….if you want speed then you could fit your Aventador with their UGR kit…compare it to a Huayra or Veyron or any other million dollar hypercar….the Aventador is closer to the price of a 458 and they are smoked by the lambo…

  7. Artem says:

    well it looks like tuned 458,hope that in real photos it will look much more different then this)for the price abou 1million they can make something totally new

  8. Pit says:

    mmm, i dont think they intended any hypercar as a daily (driver)…..

    im really in love with this car though…need rear end pics!

  9. TouyaShiro says:

    …also, while I’m at it (sorry for double post), Werty…the so-called N/A integrity is still ruined by the KERS system.

  10. TouyaShiro says:

    I can’t imagine that people would be comfortable for everyday road use of this machine…

  11. Richard says:

    ferrari is shitting all over lambo. opps i mean audi. opps i mean volkswagen.

  12. Pit says:

    love that car man!…

  13. urdrago says:

    Astonishing dry weight, its lighter than any GT3 or GTE car.

  14. werty says:

    Altough I got to give them credit for sticking with a big NA V12 engine. Too many manufacturers have gone to the dark side and put turbos or v8′s in their hypercars..

  15. werty says:

    Why would they call it F150? That’s a Ford truck.. Almost as stupid as calling it “Ferrari Mondeo” or “Ferrari Transit”
