Coming Later This Year
Ferrari’s CEO Louis Camilleri recently told reporters on an earnings call that the company would unveil a V8 hybrid supercar later this year. According to Auto News Europe, the vehicle will get a V8 gasoline engine and an electric motor for power and will sit atop the Ferrari lineup.
The car will offer more horsepower than the 488 Pista. Ferrari said that the vehicle will not make its debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, which is shaping up to be an awesome show, according to the reports of what will debut there. Instead, Ferrari will unveil its new top-of-the-line supercar at a special event later in the year. The company expects to make the deliveries of the car in 2020.
Camilleri did not supply much information to the press when he mentioned the new model. However, he did say it would not be a limited-edition car. Instead, it will have a full lifecycle and be more profitable than a V12 vehicle could be. Camilleri brought up the profitability of the car because of investor concerns about whether or not a V12 would be more profitable.
This will be the second-generation for Ferrari’s hybrid technology. The now discontinued LaFerrari was the first and it brought a new era for the company. According to Auto News Europe, 60 percent of the company’s lineup will have a hybrid offering by 2022. This will allow the company to comply with ever-tightening emissions regulations and keep pace with other supercar and hypercar manufacturers.
When the new Ferrari makes its official debut, we’ll be here to give you all the interesting details. One thing is for sure. It will a wildly powerful Prancing Horse.
