Ferrari will unveil its second hybrid model tomorrow, according to a preliminary image published on the firms Twitter.
The sketch, which shows the silhouette of the rear of the next supercar, bears the slogan “Dare to imagine” and confirms the official release date.
The drawing highlights the square brake lights and a pair of large exhaust tips protruding from the centre of the rear bumper, with a remarkable resemblance to last years SP38 concept based on 488 GTB.
Rumours suggest that the new supercar will be installed on a 3.9-litre V8, coupled to three electric motors for a combined power of 973 hp. It will rival McLarens new hybrid supercar, which was recently seen in preliminary testing before its launch next year.
Earlier, Ferrari had confirmed its plans to launch a new small-sized V6 along with a range of hybrid models: “V6 is the next step to follow the reduction without losing emotion or speed of the car.
The specific details of the powertrain are alarming, but a video shot on Ferraris Fiorano test track early last year showed a prototype based on 488 running at a speed without audible engine notes as the company increased its efforts to meet the EUs strict CO2 emission targets for 2021.
Tomorrow it will be Maranellos first new car since the F8 Tribute, his last super sports car with V8 turbocharger, at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The new hybrid is the first of five Ferraris to expire this year and one of 15 planned before 2022.
In 2022, the firm will launch its long rumor SUV model. The head of the company, Louis Camillieri, said that “he didnt worry about getting to the market too late” with the car, but that “he cared more about being the best”.
