New Details on Ferrari F150 Hit the Web after Private Preview, Said to have 950HP

|

Ferrari has an old habit of showing off its future models to potential buyers (read extremely wealthy) behind locked doors well before it reveals the cars to the rest of the world.

One such private preview is rumored to have taken place on Wednesday, in Maranello, where Ferrari lifted the wraps off the F150 Project, which is the codename for the Enzo replacement that may or may not be called the F70 in production trim.

To prove that this event did indeed occur today in Ferrari's home town, one participant took a shot of a metal plate from the event, while at least two people have shared some very interesting details about the new mid-engine hypercar, though, keep in mind, there's no way of confirming the numbers (yet).

We will begin with FerrariChat forum member SergioAutoform who said one of his clients invited to the event, shared this post on his Facebook page:

"Just saw the F150 ( the new Enzo) official name not released yet. Overall view: only 499 will be produced. only available in 3 colour. 800hp at 9200RPM with additional KERS of 150HP. Zero to 100 in 3 second to 200 in 7 seconds. Max speed around 370KMH. Fiorano Best lap with Alonso driving 1:20. Numbering expected in less than 7minutes."

"Fixed seat. Adjustable paddles. Rear Wing and mobile Diffuser. Break from 200 to zero. In 115 Meters. Weight around 1280 include the electrical engine of 150kg. Chassis totally made of Carbon Fiber. T800 and T1000 sheet. Kavler protected underneath. The car is breathtaking. If I was a Saint and she was a ***** it would make me certainly a Sinner."

These numbers match another posting, this time at the Teamspeed forums:

950 BHP plays 1,270 KG
Bespoke V12 built to sound like a Formula One engine at full chat
Engine Red-Lines @ 9,200 RPM but Max Torque available from 1,000RPM
499 Cars @ EUR1.2 million
Official Launch in Geneva
Deliveries Commence December 2013

I think that it'll be such a shame to come from the radical Enzo (F60) to this F70 if it does end up looking like the teaser photo's. I'm a huge Ferrari fan but hate the current styling and teaser pics of the F70! Sorry.

I hope the headlights don't resemble anything close to the sh*tty LED's from the 458, FF or f12.

To BuzzFerrari and Mark. Dear Meat Heads, You haven't seen the car yet. Sincerely reality check. ......Do it look Chinese? That is your opinion. I like the whole line up for at least trying to be different from each other. I can appreciate that moment. Unlike other car companies which has large and miniature clones of one vehicle.

Dear Ben Nibohs, I wish I had your eyes, because I couldn't see mud!!!! How do you know!? !Geeeze...non designers.

As long as they don't call it the dino I'm happy

Dear donald seymour, i wish you had my eyes too and for some reason, im not quite sure why you said "non designers" because coincidentally i am a graphics designer, are you going to argue with me a topic that is purely subjective? what could you achieve by convincing me that modern ferraris are ugly to you?

If you look at the latest spy shots you can see the headlights.

This F70 will look gorgeous and will have an absolutely outrageous performance! Can't believe some people on here talking about some "ugly" headlights and "chinese" design LOL...you people are just dumb, oh well moving on.

Thank you for stating dear. Laugh out Loud...Look, my point for saying that is can you, Ben Nibohs, see the head lights? I mean really everybody is making a judgement call on parts of the car which is not visible to the human eye.

So, I guess you went balls deep on that one? I can admit when I'm wrong. I'm not Aaron, so you can see the head lights partially.
