Ferrari F70 Hybrid chassis

Ferrari unveils more of the F70 hybrid supercar in Paris

Ferrari is planning to launch the first hybrid model in its history and has unveiled a major component of the F70 supercar in Paris.

Ferrari is planning on developing a new hybrid supercar and has unveiled the composite chassis at the Paris Auto Show. The new high-tech chassis comes directly from Formula 1 technologies. The Italian sports car maker has already revealed much of the drivetrain details ahead of time which is reported to be called F70. Ferrari displayed the new hybrid chassis along with the 2013 California, the all-wheel-drive FF and the new 731 hp 2013 F12 Berlinetta.

The hybrid supercar will produce 920 combined horsepower

The hybrid supercar is expected to get the main power from a 6.3-liter V12 engine producing 800 horsepower. It will be coupled to a 120-hp electric motor that will incorporate an F1-inspired Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). Power will be sent to the wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission coupled to the transaxle. The 920 horsepower Ferrari will blow the upcoming 770 horsepower hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder off the track at Nurburgring with a time of 7:14.
