The first official image of the highly anticipated Ferrari F70 has been revealed by the company in their official magazine. This is the second image of the car after a spy shot from a Ferrari event emerged recently.
From the first image we already know that the new Italian monster has a wide stance, moulded wheel arches, wide grille and a Formula one style ridge on the hood. The headlights are also visible and are likely to be similar to the ones on the 458 Italia. The F70 has been developed using the FXX and the Millechili technical concept that was revealed during Ferrari’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
It will be powered by a more developed version of the 731bhp 6.3-litre V12 that currently powers the F12 Berlinetta. An electric motor (this will the Italian automaker's first hybrid) is expected to produce an additional 100bhp and 200Nm of torque. The centrally mounted engine is also expected to get a dual-clutch gearbox and a low-mounted transmission to improve handling.
The car has got a new carbon-fibre monocoque. Inside, Ferrari has taken the F1 theme further by fitting a custom seat, moulded to the owner's shape, an ‘all controls on the wheel’ F1 style steering wheel and adjustable pedals. The F70 will be launched sometime next year and is likely to cost in excess of 800,000 GBP (Rs seven crore before taxes).
