Ferrari working on its own version of Fiat's MultiAir?
Rumor has it that Ferrari is working on a high-performance version of Fiat's acclaimed MultiAir system - one of the biggest assets that Fiat brought to the Chrysler deal. The system allows for an infinitely variable valvetrain setup altered on the fly through hydraulic actuators to optimize performance and efficiency. According to industry speculation on the reportedly leaked schematic above, Ferrari's system could also incorporate the type of pneumatically-actuated valve control used by the Scuderia to allow its F1 engines to redline over the 20,000 RPM mark, far beyond what a conventional spring-driven system could allow.
Combined, the systems could stand to simultaneously improve the efficiency and the output of Ferrari's already high-revving powertrains.
