now officially released the first teaser images of its
new-generation supercar, the spiritual successor of the
Enzo, F50 and F40, on its website, the advanced machine
will make its public debut later this year.
Significantly, the new
supercar, which currently carries the project name
"F150", will be the company's first production hybrid,
bringing to realisation the HY-KERS system it has been
developing, as well as promoting in public, for several
years. Aside from HY-KERS, the new supercar will
incorporate further F1 technology transfers, not least
in its use of construction materials.
In a press release to
go with the presentation of the front and rear teaser
pictures, Ferrari says: "The two images of the car
accompany an interview by The Official Ferrari Magazine
with Roberto Fedeli, Technical Director, and Flavio
Manzoni, Head of the Styling Centre In the article they
discuss the importance of the legacy of Ferrari’s
previous special limited series models – the GTO, the
F40, F50 and Enzo Ferrari – and the company’s approach
today to transferring Formula 1 technology and
innovations to its road cars."
The images give a
first decent look at the supercar's styling which
incorporates some cues from its predecessor, the Enzo,
more general Ferrari 'family' styling touches, such as
the proud-mounted rear lights, and more generic supercar
forms, such as the glasshouse. The front and rear ends
both appear to be dominated by large cut-out areas for
air intake and exits respectively.
