The first car to feature Ferrari’s new hybrid powertrain is the 612 Scaglietti replacement. The car that’s set to be revealed in 2011 Geneva Motor Show will be powered by 550 hp version of the same Enzo V12 you find in the 599 GTB which is coupled to a 100 hp electric motor. This system has 35 percent better fuel efficiency than an equally powerful petrol-powered V12.
As for the looks, this luxurious four-seater Ferrari will receive a major facelift (it will probably be named something other than 612 as well) and inherits features from other Ferrari models currently in produciton. The front-end will be inspired by the 458, while the back-end will kinda look like the 599.
Of course nothing’s about the styling is confirmed yet, but what really matters is that it’ll be fast! Being a hybrid for Ferrari doesn’t mean there’s any compromise on power and speed.
