Ferrari to blend an electric turbocharger with its supercharged engine

Ferrari to blend an electric turbocharger with its supercharged engine

It seems like the electric turbocharger will be the technology of future for premium carmakers. Ferrari is the latest to join the bandwagon if the rumours turn out to be true. According to sources the Italian sport carmaker is said to be working on an engine that will be supercharged and will also get an electric turbocharger.

This move might be their attempts to eliminate turbo lag completely with the help of a new electric turbocharger. This isn’t something new as Audi has already demonstrated it in two of its concept vehicles – Audi RS5 TDI and the A6 TDI. While the RS5 TDI gets sequential twin-turbochargers, the A6 TDI will get an electrically driven supercharger and a single turbocharger.

Although details are limited the Italian sport carmaker is most likely to use this technology in its V8 engines. The first to get this might be the 458 Italia which is rumoured to benefit from forced induction and churn out power to the tune of 670bhp. The addition of the electric turbocharger will help the new supercharged engines from Ferrari put out more power and reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

In the history of Ferrari only the iconic F40 was turbocharged, in the recent times we have seen the California T using forced induction. There is a possibility that Ferrari might adopt this technology for its future engines and one can only wish the legendary V12 motor stays naturally aspirated.
