Ferrari has officially announced the unveiling date of its next “revolutionary” supercar: June 24.
The firm has yet to confirm details on the upcoming model, but a teaser video featuring 2019 F1 Pro Series world champion David Tonizza hints that it will be a drastic change from the current range of the brand.
The video doesn’t give a glimpse of the car itself, but it does appear to show the Ferrari esports driver using the steering wheel of a real car and includes a brief audio clip of an engine starting up.
It is highly likely that the new model will be the entry-level hybrid supercar confirmed by Ferrari in 2018. Codenamed F171, the new car is expected to make extensive use of an electrified V6 powertrain, making it the company’s first. since the Dino to use six cylinders. , and the second hybrid capable of driving only on electricity, after the SF90 Stradale.
It is understood that the car will use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 and a single electric motor, with a combined output of around 700 hp in order to compete with the 671 hp McLaren Artura. Unlike the all-wheel drive SF90, this new model will be rear-wheel drive only.
It is currently unclear whether the engine will be a brand new Ferrari creation, or if it will tie into the 3.0-liter Nettuno seen in the recent Maserati MC20 supercar, albeit without any hybrid assistance.
The hybrid powertrain will also appear in the upcoming Purosangue SUV and will be key to continuing the brand’s electrification efforts, which will include a fully electric model by 2025.
