The 2002 Enzo Ferrari

Enzo-heir Ferrari F70 hybrid hypercar to debut in Detroit

When the Ferrari F70 arrives, it will serve as the technical successor to the famed Enzo Ferrari while also being the most powerful road car ever built by the Italian automaker and while many expected that it would make its global, public debut in Europe – Ferrari has confirmed that the new hybrid hypercar will formally be unveiled at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Over the past few months, Ferrari has been handing out small bits of information about their upcoming super sports car (currently referred to as the F70 although the production name could vary) including information on the hybrid drive system and the expected engine output. At the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the company offered a first look at the high tech carbon fiber chassis that will help to make this one of the lightest cars in the supercar/hypercar market. The company had previously been silent as to where the world would actually get to see the F70 complete and in person but many expected that it would take place somewhere in Europe. However, new reports indicate that the Enzo successor will make its debut in the good ol’ Motor City – under the bright lights of the 2013 North American International Auto Show.
