The famous Louis Camilleri replaced Sergio Marchionne at Ferrari, and earlier this month, the Chief Executive Officer confirmed the F173. That is the code name Ferrari uses for a hybrid supercar V8 that promises to be even more special than the 812 Superfast.
Caught on video by Lambolife, a model that has not yet been named, has a lot of camouflage, but the unmistakable sound of an eight-cylinder engine with a flat-plane crankshaft. At some points in the clip, you will also hear how the mid-engine supercar goes eerily quiet despite the fact the wheels are turning.
It remains to see if EV is the case, but knowledge of Ferrari, knowing Ferrari, the know-how from LaFerrari could come handy. Technical specifications are not yet known, but chances are that the total power will be 1,000 ps. This is the figure the Prancing Horse printed on the invitation to the Maranello reveal on May 31, converting to 986 horsepower.
Opinions are polarized about the kind of hybrid assistance, with some people who believe that Ferrari could even go so far as to integrate three electric motors. As far as we know, this is the recipe that Acura used for the NSX in combination with the V6 with two turbo engines. It is expected that the F173 will have a twin-turbo V8 from the F8 Tribute.
Speculating that it will cost 600,000 euros, there’s no denying this Ferrari is better than the 812 Superfast in terms of performance. On the other hand, comfort is a feature of a large tourer with a large front side V12 and natural aspiration. Maranello has two more debuts scheduled for September 2019, and another model comes to an end of the year.
On the other hand, Ferrari is developing a V6 architecture for future applications that may include the revival of the Dino. This car would help Ferrari to attract new customers, the type of people on the market for their first Ferrari. As if that was not enough, a useful Purosangue vehicle is in development as well as the successor to LaFerrari.

Just spotted a new prototype, Forgive our excitement and laughter as the driver was trying all the time to hide from us jn the parking lot and took different exits to get away. When being chased by a 488 spyder, that’s not an easy thing to do… any suggestions or comments on what it could be ? Love the double exhaust ! You seen it first on @9000lambo !!!
