Big news from Italy! Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa has officially confirmed their use of a hybrid system in their future mid-engined flagship car expected to be launched in 2013.
Ferrari are boasting big numbers with their hybrid system, such as a 40% drop in CO2 emissions and a significant increase in performance as well. Despite weighing 120 kg (260 lbs) more than a car without the system fitted, it gets to 200 km/h (125 mph) a full 3 seconds quicker. To further boost performance and economy, carbon fiber is used freely throughout the car’s body and chassis.

Other details are sparse, but apparently the car could have as much as 920 hp, combined with its low weight will ensure that the car will outperform most other hyper-cars.

Editor's note: After this announcement, snowfall in Hell, which started when they launched the all-wheel drive FF, will increase significantly.
