FLASH: Ferrari ‘Dino Revival‘ Spied Testing V6 Engine, Prototype Wears Heavy Camouflage
Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) has not used a V6 engine in its cars since the 1970s, when it introduced the Dino as a sub-brand. Well, rumor is that the Maranello Outfit is almost ready to bring back the V6 and this time around it will sell it under its own name.
The future twin-turbo V6 has already been confirmed by the iconic Italian Supercar maker . The company has mentioned this is a new engine designed compared to the 3.0-liter TT V6 motors used by Maseratis of the Ferrari-designed 2.9-liter TT V6 units found on Alfa Romeo’s Quadrifoglio range-toppers.
Most of the future V6 applications will see the unit being matched with at least one electric motor, all in a bid to cope with the ever-stricter emission standards.
Ferrari’s V6 powertrain will be used on multiple models, such as the upcoming Purosangue SUV and more than 1 mid-engined machines. In fact, the automaker is expected to introduce an all-new entry-level supercar with the said engine, even though the company’s CEO Louis Camilleri has dismissed the rumors of this bringing back the Dino nameplate.
Our spies have spotted multiple Ferrari prototypes testing the hybrid powertrain, these were mules using the bodies of existing models.
Well, the image you can find above, which comes from Just Supercars, a closed Facebook group, shows a heavily clad test vehicle. And we expect this to be the Dino revival.
Ferrari fully camouflages its prototypes, so while testers could be spied in better resolution, we probably won’t get to see any actual design bits until the launch. And when that happens we will report it immediately.
Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
HeffX-LTN overall technical outlook for RACE is Bullish across the board, and there is very little resistance here and none above 140.26. All of our Key indicators are Very Bullish in here.
Have a terrific weekend.
