Ferrari fans get ready, the automaker is about to take the famous Ferrari Enzo from red to green with the same level of speed and precision displayed by each new Ferrari model out on the tracks. Confused? Allow Boardwalk Ferrari to explain.
Back in 2002, the Italian automaker debuted the iconic red-coated, mid-engine berlinetta as a tribute to its beloved founder, Enzo Ferrari. Since then, the auto has impressed enthusiasts with its ability to advance from zero to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and reach top speeds around 221 mph. Now, Ferrari has officially announced that the Ferrari Enzo model's yet-to-be-named successor will go green with an ultra-advanced gasoline-electric powertrain.
Set to debut in 2013, the forthcoming Ferrari hybrid will enter the luxury sports car segment with all the refined performance of a gas-only Ferrari auto and a great deal of efficiency to boot. Armedeo Felisa, Ferrari CEO, explains, "We are entering the market with our Formula One-derived hybrid system, which will slash fuel consumption and increase performance."1
Though the hybrid system will inevitably add a bit of extra weight to the ultra-fast Ferrari auto, Felisa assures industry experts that engineers will balance out the burden by shaving off pounds in other places.
