Designer Envisions the Upcoming Ferrari F70 Supercar

You have probably seen our most recent scoop pictures of the prototypes of Ferrari’s Enzo replacement undergoing tests in Europe, but what could the actual production version look like when the new model, reportedly named the F70, hits showrooms in late 2013? For now, this is a question that will likely remain mercifully answered, but we have an interesting design study for the Ferrari F70 that was penned by industrial designer and current employee of Pininfarina’s German subsidiary in Rüsselsheim, Constantin-Gabriel Radu. The concept borrows elements from both the Ferrari 458 Italia as well as the previous Enzo, combining curves with hard creases and a teardrop glasshouse. If this design were to be produced, we would imagine that the car would obtain more air vents both on the sides and more importantly, on the rear end. Before we let you flip through the rest of the images, we will remind you that at last week’s Beijing Motor Show, Ferrari previewed its new HY-KERS hybrid system that’s bound for the Enzo’s successor and which links a V12 engine to a pair of electric motors, one to power the car’s auxiliary systems, and the other to drive the rear wheels.
It is believed that that combined output of the twelve cylinder engine and the electric motor will surpass the 900-horsepower mark. Photo credits: Constantin-Gabriel Radu
