A new report indicates Ferrari’s V12 engines will remain naturally aspirated
A new report indicates Ferrari’s V12 engines will remain naturally aspirated.
The Italian brand is reportedly staying true to its free-breathing roots when it comes to the biggest units in the lineup. Car Magazine states electrification will be an integral part of all future Ferrari architectures. It is still unclear what this means – anything from a 48-volt circuit to plug-in hybrids seems possible, according to the report.
The FF will likely be the first V12 model to undergo a facelift in 2016. The unusually-styled Ferrari will receive an engine update with power rising from 660 PS (485 kW) to around 700 PS (515 kW).
Next will be the F12 Berlinetta, which will also gain some visual and engine modifications. There is no word on the exact power figures, but the vehicle won’t be using a turbo for sure. No hybrid version is planned either.
Recently it was also reported Ferrari is working on a new entry-level model speculatively called the 456. It is believed the sports car will adopt a new twin-turbo V6 2.9-liter engine.
