Ferrari: LaFerrari News



In this month's R+T issue they talk about "Enzo Nuovo". They say that 90% of the next gen. Ferrari ultimate roadcar will come from the lessons learned in the current FXX. Possibly 800HP from 6.5 liters, another gear to the F1-style gearbox (total of 7) although a DSG-style tranny is also possible and lighter overall weight by 200 pounds! The US cars are expected to weigh less than 3000 pounds the article explains. 60mph in 3.0 and 10.5 for the 1/4 mile. Also no outside mirrors because a camera will show outside views. The car is expected in 2009.

I have not read the article yet in my R&T, but that cgi pic certainly caught my eye. Sounds like it will be one crazy car.

The no-mirror thing has been around with the TL concepts.... it's not gonna happen... besides that, the car looks awesome.

That's a great looking car. I doubt it will be named the "Enzo".

It won't be. R&T also has an article of the FXX and 599. Ferrari's head honcho says it will not be named Enzo.

There have been so many prototypes shown in recent years with cameras replacing the side mirrors, but none ever make it to market. If anyone can actually do it, Ferrari can.

Unlike the crap people bolt on their cars, the Enzo actually uses those scoops.

Hence the lack of rear wing. I love how they actually utilize the underbody and sides for better downforce and asthetics.

I missed mentioning that the article agrees with you. They also doubt it will.

Ferrari: New Supercar (Enzo replacement) news

From WCF...

Hot on the heels of the Ferrari California launch, already a new test mule is spotted in Italy wearing an old F360 body. Besides the upcoming Ferrari hybrid not due until 2015, two possibilities come to mind of what this prototype might be – either the next generation F430 or a powertrain mule for the Enzo successor.

In the words of the spy photographer, “We where overtaken by a strange looking 360 while driving on the highway, and noticed that the exhaust pipes were missing from the normal place. After taking a closer look we found them in the middle - right under the license plate. We managed to snap some shots before it took off at a speed that we couldn’t follow. ”

Unfortunately no photos of the front could be taken, but the photographer recalls a slightly modified front bumper from the F430. Also from the photos we can see the side rocker panels are covered in black tape as well as the back glass to prevent anyone seeing into the engine bay.

Ferrari Enzo II

Considered by many enthusiasts as the ultimate modern Ferrari, the limited-edition Enzo’s replacement will be a tough act to follow up for the Italian automaker. The second-generation Enzo, also named after the marque’s illustrious founder, promises to take performance – and, surprisingly, efficiency – to a new level.

Like the original Enzo, the car’s successor will be a range-topping supercar aimed at immortalizing the legendary founder of the brand. Available only to select current Ferrari owners, the next-generation Enzo will serve as the brand’s performance and technology showcase.

Based – at least in concept – on the Ferrari Millechili show car (though the production Enzo replacement won’t carry that name), the performance car will be loaded with the technology learned from years of Formula 1 experience.

Expected to be powered by a mid-mounted V8 engine, rather than the Maserati-based V12 that motivated the Enzo, power should easily exceed 700 horsepower. Though fuel efficiency is hardly a Ferrari selling point, the car must conform to more recent European Union standards, meaning a new emphasis has been placed on reducing consumption. It has been rumored that Ferrari will use twin-turbocharging to make the most out of a smaller-displacement (think under 6 liters) V8 engine.

Key to addressing the fuel economy issue is a significant weight and size reduction, which should bring the car well down from the just-over 3,000 lbs. of its predecessor; rumors out of Ferrari’s Maranello headquarters indicate that weight could approach 2,200 lbs. Improved aerodynamics, including adjustable front and rear spoilers, will not only help the new Enzo stick to the road at maximum speeds, but it will also ensure reduced fuel consumption.

Its platform could go one of two ways: Either a heavily-modified version of the FXX race car’s architecture – itself a variation of the road-going Enzo – or a slightly longer derivative of the F430’s aluminum space frame.

Production will probably be at least as limited as the original Enzo, meaning no more than 400 of the 1 million Euro-plus supercars will emerge from Maranello when it goes on sale in over a year’s time.

Looks hawt. I think it looks a bit better than the Enzo I

When the original Enzo first came out I thought it was quite possibly the ugliest piece I'd ever seen. Even wrote a "Backfire" to Car and Driver stating such and it got published.

I have since changed my mind, the original Enzo still not a looker but it is sweet.

A twin-turbo V8 in an Enzo just doesn't sound right to me. I know 700 hp is 700 hp, but an Enzo is one of the best sounding cars out there and now it will sound the same as a Ford GT40 TT... with less hp.

NOTHING else sounds like a Ferrari engine. And the F40 did quite well with a TT V8.

That's true, along with the F355, 360 and F430 are all V8's with a great sound... not sure what I was thinking!
