56f643ff5fer 628.jpg Ferrari begins releasing official teasers for new supercar

Regardless of what it will be called, the successor to the Ferrari will apparently be giving us a slow strip tease of the all-new hybrid supercar.

We’ve already seen a couple shadowy images of the car’s Ferrari Facebook page – are starting to show us some detail.

The only problem is that we don’t exactly know what details we’re looking at. In the shot above, that curvy, red real estate could belong to any number of body panels, while the second new teaser shows the Ferrari prancing horse logo with no indication of where on the car it’jk, s located.

Fortunately, there are just four days left until this new supercar makes its global debut, and Ferrari has promised more “hints” of the car on its website and official Facebook page.

Formula One car thanks in part to the fact that the road-going machine will feature as much downforce as an F1 competitor. From what we’ve heard so far, the Enzo replacement will boast over 800 horsepower from the combination of a V12 engine and a HY-KERS system.

Formula One car thanks in part to the fact that the road-going machine will feature as much downforce as an F1 competitor. From what we’ve heard so far, the Enzo replacement will boast over 800 horsepower from the combination of a V12 engine and a HY-KERS system.

We’ve already heard some interesting tidbits about the new machine, including the fact that each model will come with a driver’s seat tailor made for the buyer. Ferrari says we can also expect to see a quicker 0-120 mph sprint than the old Enzo with 40 percent fewer emissions. Stay tuned for live photos from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

UPDATE: After some looking into it, Ferrari does not appear to have an official Instagram account, or at least doesn’t list one alongside its other official social accounts. We’re of the mind now that what appeared on this Instragram is not officially from the Horse’s mouth.

e46cf0c860ng 628.jpg Are you the Enzo succeeding Ferrari F150?

We’ve brought you no end of spy shots and rumors surrounding the new often referred to as F150, that is destined to succeed the Enzo as the Italian maker’s top offering. Now, one new and highly speculative rendering has come to light whose origins are interesting, even if the final product is still pretty much a stab in the dark.

The rendering you see here was created by an organization called goldRush Rally, which published the image on its Facebook page. The claim is that this rendering was based on a “snapshot of a plaque with a sketch of the new supercar.” We certainly won’t speculate as to what kind of “presentation” a luxury-rally throwing company like gRR would be invited to – to say nothing of why there was a plaque bearing the image of a supercar that has been so well cordoned off from public eyes – but we’ll roll with it because we love the internet.

Even if the story is completely true (big if), we’re fairly certain the details of the rendering miss in some places relative to the real deal car. The front wheel wells, for instance, seem comically thin around the top, and hold wheels that are way out of proportion with the spy shots and videos we’ve seen so far. More promising, however, is the detailing of the door and sill of the F150 – portions of the car that have consistently been covered in spy shots.

For what it’s worth we’re virtually certain that the source photograph for this rendering was taken in front of the Comments

b20215372besting.jpg Ferrari F150 Enzo successor takes some loud laps at Fiorano

From recent Ferrari Enzo will be, but now we’ve finally gotten to see some video of the car testing at the Fiorano Circuit in Italy. This video not only gives us an earful of the car’s screaming engine and rumbling exhaust note, it also affords us a view of the car without its fish-face camouflage that it has been caught wearing recently.

The video shows the new supercar testing around the 12-turn, 1.877-mile track with an Enzo, and it is interesting to hear the differences between the 651-horsepower Enzo and its reportedly 950-hp hybrid successor. Comments

3ffd79b6d30 logo.jpg Possible Ferrari F70/F150 specs emerge from private showings

At a private showing in Maranello, a group of lucky souls got to sneak a peek at the upcoming successor to the Ferrari supercar will look like, one of the attendees did manage to pass along some vital performance information about the car as well as production numbers that are said to be limited to just 499 units.

The report on Auto-Blog.com.mx confirms that the Enzo successor will utilize an 800-horsepower V12 paired with a Mazda MX-5 Miata). Rumored speed times include a top speed of 229 miles per hour, and the ability to run from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds; doubling that speed takes an extra second.

4dd95d1ff3stease.jpg Ferrari teases more specs on its Enzo successor

On its web site, 458 Italia.”

Rory Byrne, the Ferrari F1 designer that’s been involved in 11 world championships for the team, has spent three years contributing to chassis development. That chassis will be laid up by hand in the company’s F1 composites department, each chassis composed of different kinds of carbon fiber and cured in an autoclave, F1 monocoque-style. That’s part of where the lighter weight and vastly heightened torsional and beam rigidity versus the Enzo comes from. Just behind the tub – and behind the driver’s back – will be the batteries and fuel tank, again, just as on an F1 car.

The cockpit will be personalized to the driver in a way that is rare among road cars, with each seat made-to-measure for the driver and then set in a fixed position in the cabin. The steering wheel and pedal box will move to accommodate pilots. What’s more, we’re told that “the occupant’s feet are at the same level as the driving position.” That, and the angle of the seatback, will provide “an extraordinarily racy feeling.”

An evolution of the 740-horsepower, 6.3-litre V12 currently found in the F12 Berlinetta will work with the latest HY-KERS and a double-clutch transmission. Ferrari says the powertrain makes the car quicker from 0-to-120 miles per hour, reduces emissions by 40 percent, and improves features like torque vectoring and brake force distribution.

Still no word on what it will be called, but specs like these, by any name, would be just as sweet.

76b250e35350 628.jpg Ferrari officially teases successor to Enzo throne

You’re looking at our best view yet of the upcoming successor to the Formula One to create the new model. According to the manufacturer’s official online magazine, the new ultracar will boast a carbon fiber monocoque chassis built in “an almost handmade style” using four types of the composite. We aren’t sure exactly what that means, but the design should keep weight to a minimum.
