It was about time Ferrari's people got rid of that ungainly front camouflage on the Enzo replacement test car that made it look like a startled catfish. Moreover, with the company having already teased the front and rear end of the car in its magazine, it was unnecessary...
Less than a month before its Geneva Auto Show debut, it was also time we saw and heard the F150 (the car’s internal code-name) testing. YouTube uploader Marchettino took care of that, as he filmed Maranello’s upcoming hypercar during testing at the Ferrari-owned Fiorano track – and as an added bonus, there was also a red Enzo doing the rounds, too.
The F150 will reportedly be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 that will rev to a stratospheric 9,200 rpm and put out 800HP. Add the 150HP provided by the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), and the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 3.0 seconds seems a bit on the conservative (!) side.
For now, you can scroll down and view the video of both the Enzo and its replacement being driven in anger. We think you'll agree that, no matter its eventual output, the sound the F150 makes your heart beat faster.
