Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Latest Berlinetta Coming with 6.3ltr V-12 Engine++


Ferrari is not ready to say goodbye to its naturally-aspirated V-12 engines. A new report from German magazine Autobild claims that the successor to the F12berlinetta will continue to be fitted with a V-12 engine.

The yet-to-be-named model is due to arrive sometime in Y  2019 with an upgraded version of the 6.3-liter V-12 engine that is now being used by the F12b.

So, do not expect any turbochargers with the F12’s successor.

That said, previous reports have indicated that the V-12 engine may not be the only power source that will be provided for the new model. A modern form of assistance is likely needed to get the car’s power output to a place where Ferrari wants it to be. That “assistance” could come in the form of a hybrid upgraded version of the V-12 with a few electric motors.

The word is that Ferrari wants the new model to have more hp than the 770-horsepower F12tdf, but less than the 963-horsepower LaFerrari Hypersupercar.

So, figure output in the neighborhood of 800hp is the objective for the new model, and given how much Ferrari has already squeezed out of the V-12 to get to the output of the F12tdf, it could bring in a those electric motors into the fold to help get to that “next level” output it wants for the F12b’s successor.

Ferrari has yet to comment, and I do not expect any confirmations soon. The company has most often been closed mouthed  when it comes to future models, especially those at the top of its lineup.
