March 8th!

http://magazine.ferrari.com/blog/201...i-vista-prima/

The birth of a supercar: an unprecedented exhibition opens at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello this March

The Prancing Horse’s eagerly-awaited new Enzo-replacement supercar will be unveiled to the world simultaneously at the Geneva Motor Show and the Ferrari Museum. That event provides the inspiration for a new exhibition illustrating the technical and stylistic development of the Prancing Horse’s unique supercars, past and present

We are all aware that Ferrari refuses to use conventional advertising as part of its communications because the cars it sells are greatly envied and desired in their own right. As a result, tangible signs of its activities are particularly important to Ferrari with the Maranello Museum providing a unique communications channel for the marque in that regard.

However, the title “Museum” fails to do justice on many levels to a space that, although it does celebrate the past, is also very much focused on the present and, to a certain extent, the future.

On March 8th, the Museum officially opens a truly extraordinary new exhibition that will feature the simultaneous unveiling of Ferrari’s new supercar and Enzo replacement in its halls and at the Geneva Motor Show. It will also the tale of Ferrari supercar history which began with the launch of the 250 GTO and continued with the 288 GTO, the F40, the F50 and the Enzo.

<dl class="gallery-item col-1"><dt class="gallery-icon"></dt></dl>

The exhibition’s greatest interest and originality lies in the fact that it reveals the new car’s twin souls and explains how it came into existence. On the one hand, there is its technological soul –it is the first ever high performance road-going Ferrari to adopt the KERS system and hybrid technologies – and on the other, the story of the creative developments that resulted in the sleekly seductive forms and superb aerodynamic efficiency of its body.

Visitors will no doubt be fascinated to discover the details of the path the car went down from the idea stage to the end product. They’ll even see the models built and abandoned during the design and development stages too.
Thanks to exhibitions of this calibre, the Museum is upping its game, aiming not only to attract not just enthusiasts and the merely curious but also to communicate the company’s culture. The latter involves revealing the incredible work done by Ferrari’s men and women work to the worldwide success for which the Brand is renowned.
The exhibition runs until the end of September and is a real must-see for anyone with an interest in cars, Ferraris or otherwise. The Museum is open seven days a week between 9.30 and 18.00. Opening hours are extended until 19.00 from May 1st also. Info: museo.ferrari.com.

Will The Ferrari F150 Be Called 'LaFerrari?'

http://jalopnik.com/will-the-ferrari...rari-450996819

The new Ferrari hypercar has gone by quite a few names as of late. Ferrari Enzo. Ferrari F70. Ferrari F150. We now have word from Geneva that it has an official name. And that name... is LaFerrari. I'm not joking.

The news comes to us, as most news does these modern days, via Twitter.

Scott is the Editor in Chief over at Edmunds and Carlos is the road test guy at Motor Trend, so I do put some credence behind what they say. I've sent Ferrari a note to see if this is true or if we're being punked. If it's true, Ferrari F150 suddenly sounds like a really great name.

^ Yup. Do you care the Zonda is called the Zonda? I mean, if they called the Pagani Dingis, I would still buy it if I had the $$$$ for it.


A name is just a name.

I love a car called the Huayra too

Who cares what the name is or if even 95% of the population can even pronounce it.

It's not the 70th Anniversary of Ferrari. The name wouldn't make much sense unless the car stays in production from 2014-2017.

This was posted from ferrari

Tomorrow, 5 March, the Geneva International Motor Show will be the perfect frame for the presentation of the new Ferrari Special Limited Series, heir to the F50, the first road-going car with a F1 engine presented in 1995. Save the date
I wonder why they specifically mention f50 and not enzo?
Maybe because they're introducing new F1 tech in the road going car? Definitely not the engine since its a V12. Seems weird to me.

TUESDAY, 5 MARCH 2013p

This is the first official image of the ultimate Ferrari, we will keep you updated during the morning for the unveiling of the new hypercar of the prancing horse.


The La Ferrari, Italian for “The Ferrari.” Code named the F150, the car that replaces the Enzo at the top of the Ferrari hierarchy make its debut today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, easily stealing the limelight from all other debuts.

We confirm that its powertrain is a hybrid setup that pairs Ferrari’s 6.3-liter V-12 engine with its HY-KERS hybrid setup to boost output and lower emissions.
The system consists of two electric motors, one mounted to the gearbox and sending drive to the rear wheels and the other used to take the load of the engine by powering auxiliary devices. Peak output of the combined system is a staggering 963 horsepower, as measured in metric figures.
In good ol’ American numbers that’s still 950 horsepower to play with. Torque comes in at 663 pound-feet.

Ferrari hasn’t given final performance numbers just yet, but says the La Ferrari will reach 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 217 mph. The car’s closest rival, the McLaren P1, which also debuts in Geneva, has similar specs but has its top speed limited to 217 mph. Another area were the La Ferrari is said to outmatch the P1 is in the 0-186 mph sprint, which the Ferrari should do in 15 seconds versus the McLaren’s quoted 17 seconds.
