Ferrari CEO Says V12 Hybrid Coming

We haven’t heard a rumor on hybrid Ferraris in a year now, but we’re not going to tell you any old speculative piece of information. Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa told AutoCar magazine that the F1-developed kinetic energy recovery system will be used in a future V12 hybrid supercar.

“We will roll out new technology that is there first and foremost to introduce a green factor to our cars and ensure that we can keep our product where it is in terms of CO2”, Felisa said.

“This technology is expensive today, but it has been designed to fit all our future architecture. If we go ahead, it will be fitted as standard. It’s not the sort of thing you offer as an option,” Felisa added about the V12 hybrid tech.

But since the F12 Berlinetta has already been launched, the only other car that could see such a powertrain is the Enzo successor. As part of their commitment to reduce emissions, Ferrari will also bow their heads down to the turbocharger, which would be fitted to a very distant six-cylinder engine.
