According to the report, the majority of the power will be generated by a 7.3-liter V12 power house that is a further development of the unit set to be employed in the F620 which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Details of the long rumored successor to the all conquering Ferrari Enzo have returned yet again. This time they come courtesy of a report by Autoweek that says power on the super-duper car will hit 920hp and it will be called the F70.
According to the report, the majority of the power will be generated by a 7.3-liter V12 engine - a further development of the power plant to be employed in the F620. The F620 aka 620 GT will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
A total of 120 horsepower will also be derived from the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that is better known for its employment in Formula 1 cars. One thing that must be noted is that the KERS system only gives a power boost for a limited time until the energy is regenerated meaning the Enzo replacement will spend a great deal of time with just 800 horsepower available. It seems a little low, but with a low kerb weight and enhanced driving dynamics, it could be enough.
Talking of weight, the report also states it will set the scales to around 1134kg (2,500 lbs) which is a good dip on its predecessor that comes in at 1,365 kg (3,010 lbs).
If all rumors turn out to be accurate, the new F70 will battle the successor to the McLaren F1 and the Porsche 918.
