When the media and the public head down to the Geneva Motor Show later next month there are two cars that is sure to grab their attention first, and that is the Ferrari F150 (more commonly known as the Enzo successor) and the McLaren P1. We already know so much about the latter, but not much is known about the former.
However, all that should change in Geneva because we should not only learn all those important specs, but also details like price and also availability. From the rumors we have heard so far the F150 looks to be the far better car, but never write off McLaren, because they are all about the finer details.
Ferrari have been pretty quiet in regards to the build up to their new hypercar, so it seems very strange that they would use social media in order to announce that the car will not only make its debut in Geneva, but it will also succeed the Enzo as the top Ferrari. There are a huge number of you who believe this to be a fake report, but giving the F150 its debut in Geneva where the P1 is to also appear is surely its best platform?
There seems to be a huge debate in regards to Ferrari’s choice in name for their Enzo successor, but F150 is more likely to be its internal/code name. Why would Ferrari wish to take on the might of Ford, who we are sure will not be best pleased with the use of the name.
We say this because Ford had sent a letter to Ferrari back in 2011 threatening legal action if they used the F150 name. However, Ferrari responded by saying that they have never said that they will use the name for their upcoming car, because it’s just an abbreviation of its full name, Ferrari F150th Italia, which is to celebrate 150 years of the unification of Italy.
