For all those supercar fans out there, I have some really great news. The next version of over-zealous supercar Enzo is just around the corner and soon a new improved version of the rare supercar will be out to up the ante in supercars category. The highly sought after launch will take place amidst much fanfare at the Detroit Motor Show set to take place in January 2013. I wish Ferrari will give its numerous fans around the globe something that they are not going to forget and stop talking about it for a long time to come.
Surely, some of us will even mark their calendar with the day on which the said launch is set to take place and will start cutting each date on the calendar as the days pass by. However, this is the case of an ardent fan, but even for those who follow the world of cars albeit moderately will also be willing for a glance of the car.
The supercar is going to feature a 900 plus HP 7.3 liter V12 engine with a topping of kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) hybrid lending it more power and efficiency on the chase. However all those speed junkies looking forward to test the car on the circuit, they are definitely going to miss out on the turbocharger in the back. As F40 also had a turbocharger, Ferrari engineers must have sought to create a difference from its other cars by giving it a miss this time.
It would be interesting to note here that it wouldn’t be much of a problem for a California with twin-turbochargers to produce the same amount of power with higher torque than the new V12 Enzo with its 4.3 liter V8 powertrain. All this and higher fuel efficiency could have been achieved with this feat. However, I sincerely feel that Ferrari should consider installing a turbocharger in the later versions of the car.
To try and not take notice of the 458 Italia’s design is also going to be a challenge for Automotive Designers. On the design front Ferrari has made the Enzo 2013 wider and lower than its predecessor keeping in line with the several camouflages that Ferrari has used in majority of its cars till now.
