We just told you about the upcoming Enzo replacement based on the Millechili concept a few days ago, but now we have a few more juicy rumors to share. Informed sources tell us that the upcoming replacement for Ferrari's Enzo supercar will take a different tack. As was reported earlier, it is believed that Ferrari wants to go with a smaller dimension vehicle featuring a smaller displacement engine. We're not sure of the dimensions or weight, but at least in the engine bay we should see a reduction over the current supercar. It is believed to be powered by a V8, unlike the Enzo's 6.0L V12. Not to be outdone by the likes of Bugatti and Koenigsegg, however, rumor has it this new Ferrari (F60?) will feature a pair of turbos feeding that V8, resulting in somewhere around 900 HP. Even with a vehicle weighing about the same as the Enzo, 900 HP would produce staggering performance. Early word was a 500 HP target figure, but the 900 number seems to be pretty firm according to our source. We'll keep our ears open for any other details we might hear about the possible Enzo successor.

      I will be very surprised if they come out with a 900hp small displacement motor. Why? Because it would mean serious turbolag and that is completely unacceptable to Ferrari (I would assume). To get 900hp with turbos and still have a fat powerband, you still need ~6L.

      I can definitely see Ferrari going to a ~4 liter motor and adding turbos to maintain the current power level (~600hp). From my personal experience, I deem 150hp/L with properly sized turbos still gives 'acceptable' driveability. Smaller displacement means lower CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy. Even supercars are held to the ever tighter emissions regulations.

      I'd like to see a super car that weighes 1000kilos and still has full ac/interior/radio and has 500 hp. That'd be more impressive

      I remembered back in 04 when Ferrari' CEO said that they'd never use Turbos, 'cause there were for cheaper less superior super cars (911 Turbo), i think i still have the Motor Trend issue, in which he stated.

      Oh, and Listen Frank Filipponio, the so called Ferrari Enzo it's actually an F60 so this will be F70...

      BTW, dealers should teach their new drivers, how to handle a super car, they can even charge for it, they won't care, and lot's of sales going up!

      900 hp is good enough, but Ferrari needs to go back to the basics: keep the electrics to a minimum, and keep the weight at no more than 1100 kg.

      How well does it crash? Will there be refinements in the "splitting in half" technology?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Actually, the splitting in half is F1-derived technology. Try crashing a "regular" car at that speed and see if you walk away.
        Most (all?) of the reported Ferrari crashes I've been reading about ended with the drive walking away alive, and usually unhurt. Pretty amazing, IMO.

      I do hope they give it a more original look than the Millechili concept has. Perhaps something P4/5 persuasion?

      The last article from Autoblog about this car started with the sentence "Ferrari's getting in on the environmental game."
