- First ever hybrid powered Ferrari will break cover on 29 May.
- Rumoured to get a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 with a pair of electric motors producing nearly 1000 horsepower.
Ferrari is ready to take covers off an all-new supercar on 29th May. This new supercar won’t just be another bedroom wallpaper from Maranello. Rather, it will be the first-ever hybrid Prancing Horse. Yes, Ferrari is making its first hybrid supercar which is currently codenamed as F173.
This yet-to-be-named supercar was only spotted once outside the factory. And details surrounding the new Ferrari hybrid supercar are scarce. All we know so far – according to rumours – is that it will be powered by the same 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 conjoined by a pair of electric motors. This hybrid powertrain will easily produce around 1000 horsepower, all of which will be sent to all four wheels. The 0-100kmph time is speculated to be around two seconds flat. Based on the latest iteration of the 458 chassis, the hybrid supercar might borrow its hardware from the erstwhile flagship - the LaFerrari.
As far as appearance is concerned, we have little to no details about the new hybrid Prancing Horse. But we could assume a sportier and more aggressive styling which will be a step over the recently revealed F8 Tributo. The test mule spotting has revealed a pair of squared-off taillights, high mounted circular exhaust tips, and imposing air-vents, both fore and aft.
More details of the upcoming Ferrari Hybrid supercar will be revealed in a couple of days’ time. So stay tuned to CarWale.
