Click above to view the Ferrari Millechili in our hi-res gallery

Since the epically fast Enzo supercar finished its limited production run, the 430 Scuderia has been left to uphold the mantle as Ferrari's fastest. But as amazing as the Scuderia's performance is, outrunning every previous Ferrari around the company's Fiorano test track, it only goes to show what Maranello is capable of: If they can do this with their erstwhile "entry-level" V8 sportscar, what do they have in store for the Enzo's successor?

Emerging reports suggest that Ferrari could go one (or both) of two ways with its next range-topper. One approach is reportedly being based on the Millechili concept, which as you'll recall was essentially a chopped-down Enzo crafted out of cardboard and plastic holding the promise of environmentally-friendly specs. The production vehicle is tipped to be based on the F430's platform – remember that the 288 GTO and F40 were based on modified 308 underpinnings – but feature a 600hp V10 in a lightweight 1000kg package, with a lengthened wheelbase of around 104 inces, a $500,000 price tag and a production run of 300.

While reports suggest that a second supercar could appear based on the FXX development program, we think it far more likely that one vehicle will prevail, borrowing on themes and components from both the Millechili and the FXX test-bed.

      Yet another "supercar" article. I've never read so many announcements about "supercars". As much fun as they are to drive - it's getting really boring reading about all of them in one form or another. It's not like 95% of the readers here will ever have driven one or even seen one in person.

      Majorly boring:
      - New mfgrs coming back from the dead or sprouting up out of nowhere
      - any talk of emissions re: supercars
      - Ring times
      - Spy shots of "we can make out the turn signal lamps now"
      - Richy Rich crashes his supercar
      - They slapped on a supercharger and now it's really fast.
      - Stat sheet racing

      If they are only going to make 300 of them, why do they price it at 500k when they know they could get double that? I mean, they will instantly be jacked up to a mil or something anyway on the grey market or by anyone that gets one just to resell. If a 599gtb goes for almost that on ebay and an enzo is a mil, then you know people would pay it and at least the company could pocket the added cash instead of some greasy middleman.

      Here we go again! I'm going to hold you guys to that 1000 kg weight spec. Just like the old days, no bloated pigs...

      Nobody, I mean NOBODY, buys a Ferrari because of environmental-friendly reasons.
        • 6 Years Ago
        of course nobody buys them just for the sake of "saving the environment", but aren't environment-friendly production and operation things which add to the appeal to the car?

      i hope it looks a bit different to either of them, both the fxx and millechilli are far too like enzo's. it'd end up looking really dull compared to the reventon which is simply insane

      How appropriate- it's in Cameron's dad's garage.

      Leave it to Ferrari to introduce the world’s first paper based ultra light wheels.
