Ferrari F70 caught testing.

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by SuperSonic, Jun 7, 2012.

  1. From someone who was at the Ferrari factory and saw the car.

    "All I can say, not to break any non-disclosure agreements and find myself in hot water is this car absoutley stunning. As much as I respect what McLaren have done, just wait to see what Ferrari have in store. Really, this thing is so advanced and so far ahead of anything that has seen roads before its rediclious.

    It is identical in size to a 458, but has a lower roofline and is MUCH lighter. The car will have more systems, dials and settings than a space station, and will feature a retractable rear wing. The shape is timeless, beautiful, and not so far from some artist impressions out there, all I can say is hourglass figure!

    The underside has been developed, and is much more advanced than I've ever heard of, really, if you've seen the underside of a Bugatti Veyron, this makes it look simple.

    The power output and emissions are the highest and lowest of any Ferrari engine respectively, and they are calling it a Hybrid system.

    Really, I've seen the McLaren up close, had the talk and tour, but this Ferrari is something else!

    All I can say is, if your excited by this car, turn your dial up 10more turns!!!


    Best

  3. Sorry if your feelings were hurt, obviously they were.
     
  4. Theres nothing you said that was offensive. Your point was just retarded.
     
  5. No sorry it wasn't. Its how Ferrari build their cars vs what Lamborghini and AWD car makers do.

    Heck not just Ferrari but cars like the P1.


    I stand by my statement, apes can make a 700 hp awd car & have a faster track time than a rwd car.
     
  6. BTW I've been lucky enough to drive a few super cars in Vegas and Miami.

    AWD on a car with 500, 600, 700hp is like using a condom with your wife. Its a totally different driving experience awd vs rwd.
     
  7. There's not enough salt in the ocean to take with this "quote".

  9. Sounds like a fanboy
     
  10. What a good source.
     
  11. I really really really hope you die in a fire.
     
  12. Sounds like you need to grow up.... You clearly have no idea who he is. This guy will be driving the car this time next year why'll you jacking off all over some car magazine....
     
  13. lol what an idiot this iron stallion is. Look at his avatar!

    I bet if he was offered a ride in a gallardo he wouldn't turn it down, primarily cos hes a 14 yr old with braces
     
  14. lol you are such a twat
     
  15. I 'spotted' cars when I was 14-15
    nothing crazy though like going to Modena or Maranello or whatever and sitting outside the factory gates waiting for next year's models to drive out
     
  16. Naw man, I never use a condom with your wife.
     
  17. LET THE BATTLE BEGIN
     
  18. BATTLE OF THE 14 YR OLD SUPERCAR FANS!
     
  19. haha
     
  20. Exactly!! Add this to Ferrari's unmatched racing pedigree and you have the formula for what is possibly the best car in the world. Where is Lamborghini's racing heritage? Nowhere, it's a car for show offs. Real car enthusiasts prefer Ferrari.

    4RE 4EVA !
     
  21. what has this forum become
     
  22. Now I'm lost.
     
  23. But, it will still lose to the Scion FR-S due to gotta have it factor.
     
  24. I have lost faith in what was once the best Supercars forum on the Internet.

    Ferrari To Unveil Enzo Successor at 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    Just the Facts:
    -Ferrari will unveil its most powerful road car yet to potential customers early next year.
    -A public debut is slated for the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January.
    -Reputed to produce 900 horsepower, the midengine, carbon-fiber two-seater features an all-new V12 engine whose power — and fuel economy — will be enhanced by a Formula 1-style KERS hybrid system.

    MARANELLO, Italy — Ferrari will unveil its most powerful road car yet — a successor to the Enzo — to potential customers early next year, with a public debut slated for the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January.

    Reputed to produce 900 horsepower, the midengine two-seater features an all-new V12 engine whose power — and fuel economy — will be enhanced by a Formula 1-style KERS hybrid system.

    The company revealed the new car's carbon-fiber tub last month at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. It was created using Formula 1 molding techniques that produce a lighter structure than the carbon-fiber manufacturing methods usually used for road cars.

    The weight saving is needed to compensate for the added mass of the HY-KERS system, with the electric motor adding 110 pounds and the Samsung battery pack 220 pounds. The result is a chassis 20 percent lighter than the original Enzo's despite a 27-percent increase in torsional rigidity and a 22-percent gain in beam stiffness.

    The HY-KERS system is claimed to produce a CO2 and fuel consumption reduction of up to 40 percent, according to a video showing an evolution of the system, called HY-KERS 2012, released in April.

    Ferrari previously has shown a prototype hybrid system based on the 599 called HY-KERS at the 2010 Geneva Auto Show.

    The same video also provides some technical details of the hybrid drivetrain on the new supercar, which some are speculating will be called F70. These include a high-power electric motor believed to produce 120 hp that's packaged with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to provide a power boost and energy recuperation.

    Other features include an auxiliary electric motor for energy regeneration and a generator control system that reduces driveline drag while the batteries are being recharged.

    The new 6.3-liter V12 is reputed to develop more than 900 hp and features multi-spark mixture ignition and continuously variable-length inlet tracts to maximize power and torque. The V12 in the regular-production F12 develops 730 hp.

    The F70, if that's what it's to be called, is the successor to Ferrari's limited-edition Enzo supercar and is the fifth in a series of high-power, limited-edition models that began with the 1984 288 GTO and includes the 1987 F40, the 1995 F50 and the 2002 Enzo.
