While we already know that the successor to the Enzo Ferrari (dubbed the F150) will make its debut at the Geneva Motor show, there is still much we do not know, such as its performance and also that all-important top speed. However, we may have just found out the price, as it’s been reported that the new Ferrari hypercar is to cost more than â‚¬1 million, which is $1.34 million if converted. However, one would expect those in the US to play a little less than their European counter parts.
Having said that, the price will be far more, as this is before taxes, so if you live in the UK you’ll have to put at least another 20 percent on top of that figure. While this may seem pretty steep and is around the same price as a Bugatti Veyron, you have to look at some of the technology that is being used.
There are not a great deal of people who will be able to afford the upcoming Ferrari, which is also rumored to be called the F70, which is why there will only be 499 units being made. This guarantees that you will not see many of these on the road, so just adds to their exclusivity.
While we still do not know the final specs or what the final look of the Ferrari Enzo descendant will look like, we do know that the powerplant will be a form of hybrid, much like the McLaren P1 in that respect. It’s been reported that the Ferrari will produce more than 900 horsepower, so will be pretty even with the McLaren, which is said to produce 903 horsepower.
Whenever you think of a supercar or hypercar you expect them to drink the fuel at an alarming rate, but with the use of hybrid technology Ferrari has managed to reduce the fuel consumption by up to 40 percent. Okay, so you may think that this goes everything about what these cars stand for, but we have to also consider what they have been doing to the environment as well. Which of the two hypercars will you choose, or would you much prefer the rawness of the Pagani Huayra?
