Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) May Pair an Electric Motor to a New V6 for Dino
Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) hybrid evidence is peaking out on dark German streets.
The Big Q: Could this be a Dino paring an electric motor to a new Ferrari V6?
Would that this spy video was a bit clearer and filled with sound, but when happening upon a camouflaged Ferrari testing on the street, day or night every car enthusiast has an obligation to grab footage.
In this case, a YouTuber with the handle DrGumoLunatic was in Stuttgart when a strange Ferrari 488 with white coverings on the front and back came into his sight. Thus begging the Q’s: Is this a 488 hybrid model undergoing some on-road evaluation, or is there V6 engine inside?
It sure looks like other 488 test cars we have seen recently.
But, the car footage of the clip makes it difficult to identify any kind of sound coming from the Ferrari. The exhaust note we hear seems to be coming from the camera car, so we can only go on what we see, and that is not much.
I have see other videos that caught a similar car turning laps at Fioranio in complete silence, so it is possible this Ferrari was also quiet.
It is very interesting is that the video description calls this a Dino 488 Hybrid.
We all know Ferrari is expanding its hybrid offerings, and we also know new V6 technology is in the works. And rumors of a new V6 Dino have come and gone for years, but then we have to ask this Q: Could the Dino return as a V6 hybrid?
I have not been able to source this spy video, and so not sure where the information comes from. It is believed such a setup in the 488 would pair electricity with a V8, but going with a V6 in a hybrid application does make sense if Dino is in mind at the Maranello Outfit.
The world is that Ferrari’s new hybrid powertrain could debut in Y 2019, and the iconic Italian Supercar maker has plans to expand electrification to many models in the years ahead due to compliance regs for producers of about 10,000 cars annually.
For now, we wait, we see.
