Ferrari reveals more about Enzo successor

Ferrari reveals more about Enzo successor

Ferrari is obviously taking the phrase "too much of a good thing" very seriously, judging by the trickle of information it is releasing about its upcoming flagship model. It has immensely big shoes to fill - those of the Enzo - and fittingly, everything we're hearing about it is superlative. 

The chassis will be made by hand in the F1 composites department, which means an all-carbonfiber unit. It has been designed over the last three years by one Rory Byrne, who has been involved in eleven world championships for the F1 team. Behind the tub, and the driver's back, is where the batteries and fuel tank will reside. 

Ferrari is also taking personalisation of the interior very seriously. The driver's seat will be made-to-measure to fit the owner, like F1 car seats are made. It will then be fixed to a position in the cabin, with the steering wheel and pedals moving back and forth to adjust to different drivers. Ferrari also says that "the occupant's feet are at the same level as the driving position", meaning that if you're unfit, you'll require someone to help you up and out of the car every time you get off. 

The engine will be an evolution of the 740bhp V12 that runs under the hood of the F12 Berlinetta. Of course, it will have HY-KERS and a dual-clutch transmission to help. Ferrari says this makes the car quicker from 0-200kph, reduces emissions by 40 per cent and even helps with torque vectoring and brake force distribution. 

There is still no word on what it will be called, but we know this for sure: it will be one fantastic-sounding name.
