New Entry Ferrari To Call On Turbo V6 Or V8: Report Photo:
TMR Team | Jan, 03 2013 | 0 Comments

Ferrari's next roadster isn't far away, with recent spy photos of a California-based mule suggesting complete prototypes will hit the road in the coming months.

What we'll find under the bonnet of the new entry 'Fezza' remains unknown, although reports in 2012 pointed to talk of a new twin-turbo V8 engine and an energy-regeneration system.

Now, new reports appear to add credence to the potential for a turbocharged engine, although it remains unclear if it will pack six cylinders or eight - or both.

According to the UK's Autocar, the new car will draw power from the same 3.8 litre turbo V8 that features in the new Maserati Quattroporte - an engine that Maranello insists is all-Ferrari.

Regardless of which mill powers the next Fezza, expect it to produce more power than the California's 365kW 4.3 litre V8.

A light aluminium and carbon-fibre chassis is also expected to feature, contributing further to the new model's performance.

Also expected is a version of the KERS hybrid system, set to appear in the flagship Enzo replacement later this year.

The lines of the new car are expected to draw on more retro themes than the California. Ferrari Centro Stile, with help from Pininfarina are chalking-out the redesign.

Ferrari updated the existing California for 2012, with improvements to weight and power, so the all-new model is expected to be at least two years away.
