Ferrari Enzo II
Like the original Enzo, the car’s successor will be a range-topping supercar aimed at immortalizing the legendary founder of the brand. Available only to select current Ferrari owners, the next-generation Enzo will serve as the brand’s performance and technology showcase.

Expected to be powered by a mid-mounted V8 engine, rather than the Maserati-based V12 that motivated the Enzo, power should easily exceed 700 horsepower. Though fuel efficiency is hardly a Ferrari selling point, the car must conform to more recent European Union standards, meaning a new emphasis has been placed on reducing consumption. It has been rumored that Ferrari will use twin-turbocharging to make the most out of a smaller-displacement (think under 6 liters) V8 engine.

Looks like they threw the F40, F50, 512TR and Enzo into a blender and the Enzo II came out.

Awesome rendering, but its a little over agressive compared to how clean the current ferrari line up is. So i woulnt expect the Enzo II to be a crazy.
Also not a fan of stacked exhaust tips, side by side is true ferrari style and looks way meaner. Front wouldnt pass pedestrian safety tests either by the look of it.

TT V8 would be great, F40 was an insane car for 2.9ltr TT V8 they were making 470hp.

The little wing on the back looks kind of weird.

Do they really have to care about fuel consumption laws when they are going to only make like what 200? And it's not like the people that buy them are going to use it as a DD.

Ferrari F70 - Enzo Replacement

Ferrari ‘F70′ Enzo successor to be revealed late-2012
IN FERRARI, NEWS ON MARCH 11, 2012 AT 10:28 PM

At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, currently under way, Ferraro boss Luca di Montezemolo revealed the all-new 2013 Ferrari ‘F70′ Enzo successor will be shown to a select group of investors later this year.

This is a big one for Ferrari, as it is the replacement for the car that was named after Mr Ferrari Enzo himself, and also is the model line that carries the tradition of celebrating Ferrari’s anniversary.

In 1987, Ferrari introduced the Ferrari F40, celebrating 40 years of the company since it was fully established in 1947. After that, Ferrari followed with the F50, which kind of muddled things up in terms of dates. It was introduced in 1995, two years before the company’s real 1997 50-year anniversary.

For the Ferrari Enzo, nicknamed the F60 by some, the dates were further pulled forward. It was introduced in 2002, or five years before the company’s actual 60th birthday.

There has been plenty of anticipation for the new model, as it has now been 10 years since the Enzo. The nickname of F70 is being used in the industry, despite Ferrari’s 70-year anniversary not technically occurring until 2017.

According to an agi.it report, Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo has said the new model will be revealed to a group of Ferrari clients later this year, saying,

“It will be presented to collectors and it will be a car with three aims: to amaze in terms of technological innovation (rationally not just performance), astonish and amaze in terms of design.”

The new Ferrari ‘F70′ Enzo is certainly set to amaze in the engine department, with power expected to come from large V12 engine, as well as a kinetic energy regeneration system (KERS) capable of generating and storing electric energy. The stored power could then be used during hard acceleration, adding around 90kW.

Overall combined power output could be around the 686kW mark. This would put it well in front of the Ferrari Enzo’s 485kW V12, and ahead of the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta‘s 544kW output – now Ferrari’s most powerful production car.

As for the name of the new model, no details have been revealed, however, Montezemolo has said it will “amaze with its name”, but inadvertently revealed that one hadn’t been penciled in yet.

“After calling a car Enzo in tribute to our founder indeed it isn’t easy to find a proper name for this car.”

We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Hope we see more info coming out soon.

New Ferrari Enzo HY-KERS hybrid system revealed?
BY BRETT DAVIS IN FERRARI, APRIL 24, 2012 AT 10:16 AM



Ferrari has revealed details of its latest HY-KERS (hybrid kinetic energy recovery system) engine layout, which is expected to be used on the new Ferrari Enzo successor.

The setup incorporates a mid-rear-mounted V12 layout – the only car in Ferrari’s lineup to feature a mid-engine V12 was the Enzo – using two electric motors. One of the electric motors is used to boost power, while the other motor mounted at the front of the V12 powers vehicle accessories.

Ferrari says compared to an engine producing the same power without the hybrid setup, the new HY-KERS system produces 40 per cent less emissions.



Where the batteries will be located is still under evaluation, however, Ferrari is said to be finished the initial experimental stages of the system, and is expected to test it out in the wild and on the track in the very near future.

Apart from the added efficiency benefits of the hybrid setup, Ferrari has also revealed some details of the V12 engine itself. The unit will use variable length intakes for better low-down torque and improved high-end power, while multispark technology will also be used.

Click play on the video below for an outline on the new system.

Come on 700kw V12!

Ferrari Enzo ‘F70′ successor prototype spotted for the first time
BY BRETT DAVIS IN CAR NEWS, FERRARI, HYBRID ON JUNE 8, 2012 AT 12:37 PM

A Ferrari forum member has spotted a prototype version of the new Ferrari Enzo ‘F70′ successor. This is the first time a real glimpse of the new supercar has been revealed.



The images were posted on enthusiast forum Ferrari Chat recently, with the photographer saying that the engine note was simply absurd. He said it sounded more like an F1 car than a road car. Unfortunately, no video accompanies these images.

As far as details go, the next Enzo, dubbed the Ferrari F70, will be powered by a V12 engine using a new HY-KERS recovery system and electric motor. Specific outputs are yet to be revealed, however, expect around 920hp (686kW) to be on tap. The new Enzo will be the most powerful road car Ferrari has ever produced.

Not only will it be powerful, Ferrari has pushed the fact that the new powertrain will reduce fuel consumption by as much as 30 per cent, and produce around 40 per cent less emissions than an equivalent petrol-only engine with the same power.



As for the styling of the new Ferrari Enzo F70, these images are based on a prototype, but they reveal a very low profile body – as you would expect – with a sharp low nose and an elegant sweeping tail.

Disguise and body cladding on the prototype does conceal the exact layout of the nose and rear end. The styling is likely to match the company’s current design language though, as seen on the Ferrari 458 and Ferrari FF.

According to reports, the new model will also be made mostly of carbon fibre. But not just any carbon fibre, a special high-strength carbon which is also used in the construction of the company’s F1 cars. This could allow the new Enzo to be lighter and stronger than its recent predecessors.

All will be revealed towards the end of this year. Stay tuned.
Hope we see more soon

Update!

These F70 Renders Make Us Drool with Anticipation
The artist is David Williams of Australia. Lucky for us, the talented graphic artist has got a thing for Ferraris. While they’re not directly based on the body of plastic clad Enzo successor, we kinda wish the car was based on these images. Sure, the side mirrors are totally insubstantial, but who cares! It’s a concept, all it has to do is make me want it. Which I do.

Pininfarina has given it a shot too, though, they’re design is a little bit more… Well, ugly. Normally, I’m the first one to fawn over Pininfarina’s work (the P4/5 is lust worthy), but that one is just a bloated 458 with F430 taillights.

Ferrari rarely missteps when it comes to the style of their cars, so we have no doubt the F70 will be a visual icon as well as a performance one. We’ll just have to wait and see what they’ve got in mind when the camouflage comes off.




Looks sinister.

I like it. Like the tail. Like how the trailing edge/wing hoods over the tails. Car companies need to just get on with ripping off the mirrors and going with cameras. Mirrors are 19th century chit.
