And what do you know, Ferrari’s new hypercar isn’t going to be called the F70 at all, rather the F150. Hmm, isn’t the F150 a pickup truck and haven’t we been here before?
Anyway, back to the images. It’s going to look pretty special, don’t you think? Of course, the car itself will be special too. Under a page titled “Solving the mystery”, Ferrari has this to say on the F150’s powertrain:
The F150 will be powered by a development of the 740 CV 6.3-litre V12 introduced in the new F12berlinetta, along with the latest evolution of Ferrariâ€™s HY-KERS electric hybrid system unveiled at the Geneva Show in 2010. The HY-KERS system is a performance enhancer, as well as a tool in the battle to lower emissions.
On the seating position:
In order to rationalise interior space, the cockpit, and consequently the entire vehicle, is built around the driver, making the most of Ferrariâ€™s experience, both in functionality and ergonomics. Hence the decision to adopt a fixed seat, which will be made to measure (as it is in an F1 car), with an adjustable pedal box and steering wheel.
On the development team:
A working group of F1 and GT engineers has been focused on the chassis for more than three years, availing itself of the contribution of Rory Byrne, who helped win 11 world titles in his role as the Scuderiaâ€™s Chief Designer.
We can’t wait to see the full details! There’s a few more teaser pics after the break, too.
