Ferrari F12 Replacement To Retain Screaming, Naturally-Aspirated V12

Lamborghini isn’t the only automaker remaining faithful to its naturally-aspirated V12 engines with reports claiming that the Ferrari F12’s successor will use 12 screaming Italian cylinders.

In a report published in the German media, Autobild asserts that the replacement to the F12 Berlinetta will arrive sometime in 2019 and that the 6.3-liter V12 of the current car will be upgraded and used once again.

Pivotally, it is reported that the powertrain will remain naturally-aspirated and not go down the turbocharged route of the California T and 488 GTB despite strict emissions targets. This doesn’t mean the V12 won’t receive some form of assistance and if earlier suggestions prove accurate, some form of electrification may be featured instead.

Whatever the case may be, power figures for the F12’s replacement are bound to be monumental. In F12tdf guise, the firm’s V12 delivers 770 hp so for the new car, that could quite easily rise to 800 hp.

Although the marque could use the electric motor of the LaFerrari as well, it won’t want the next F12 to be faster than its current halo hypercar. Instead, any form of hybridization will probably only be there to benefit fuel economy and provide slight performance gains.

Beyond its drivetrain, it’s thought that the new car will be both smaller and lighter than the F12, giving it more on-track prowess.
