Default Ferrari Enzo replacement spied

Quote:
The all-new Ferrari Enzo has been spotted in Maranello wearing less camouflage and revealing more of the flagship Ferrari's dramatic design.


The curved and slatted rear window is clearly inspired by the P4/5, and despite the cladding you can still make out the incredibly low, wide and long proportions.


At the rear the new flagship model is expected to make use of a spoiler, unlike the clean body of the Enzo. There also appears to be exhaust outlets either side of the rear window, as well as incorporated into the bumper.


The new Enzo will use a 7.3-litre V12 coupled to an electric motor, which will combine to produce more than 900bhp eclipsing not only its chief rival, the 728bhp Porsche 918, but also the original 650bhp Ferrari Enzo. It will use a double-clutch gearbox and ceramic brakes.


The new Enzo will also use a carbon fibre chassis and body, unlike other Ferraris such as the 458 and FF which use aluminium. It should be lighter than the original 1,255kg Enzo, guaranteeing that it's at the pinnacle of supercar performance. This means a 0-62mph time of less than three seconds and a top speed in excess of 220mph.


The new Ferrari Enzo is expected to make its public debut later this year. Only 399 examples of the previous-generation Enzo were ever sold, so expect a similar number to find their way into the hands of owners. A price tag of more than 500,000 is expected, too.
