After many spy photos of cars that we see every day on the streets, here is a series of shots that is a little less common: the mule pictured in these images is in fact a prototype for the new Ferrari F150, the successor to the mighty Enzo, caught on film during a road test. The long awaited F150 should be unveiled in March at the next 2013 Geneva Motor Show and will go on to compete with some fierce rivals which are also expected to surface this summer, namely the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder, and this new ‘Clash Of The Titans’ will surely become the next hot topic in the automotive world.
What do we know about the new F150 so far? The first thing is that it will be produced in limited numbers - probably just 500 units - and that the total output should be in the 950 hp region thanks to the combination of a classic Ferrari 6.3-liter V12 and the advanced HY-KERS system: this particular hybrid technology had been developed to increase performance while reducing the environmental impact of the supercar.
The house of the Prancing Horse explained that this technology will allow the new Enzo a 10% improvement on the 0-200 km/h (124 mph) sprint time over its predecessor while reducing average fuel consumption and Co2 emissions by a staggering 40%. Besides, the HY-KERS will also act on the Torque Vectoring system to make sure that the driving wheels will receive the right torque at all time, working in cooperation with traction control.
