Ferrari Hybrid Supercar Will Be Revealed In Maranello Before Month’s End

2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Ferrari as the Italian company announced it will reveal a hybrid supercar before the end of this month.

Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri made the announcement during the company’s Q1 2019 earnings call on May 7. “The second model will be presented at the end of this month, with the world premiere held here in Maranello. As we have stated previously, it will be a top-of-the-line hybrid with supercar performance and true beauty,” Camilleri said during the call that was posted online by The Motley Fool as a transcript.

The first model he was talking about is the F8 Tributo unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. Ferrari’s hybrid supercar will be sold in parallel with the 488 successor, which is likely to go down in history as the last non-hybrid Berlinetta.

Ferrari’s hybrid mid-engined supercar is no surprise as there have been countless reports about it and prototypes have been spotted testing several times. However, the reveal date is a bit surprising, given that previous intelligence estimated the car would launch sometime in July.

The sooner, the better, right? Not much actual information is known about the hybrid supercars but recent rumors and reports talk about a twin-turbo V6 hybrid powertrain with a combined output of 733 PS (723 hp) and a massive 800 lb-ft (1,084 Nm) of torque.

The upcoming hybrid will not be a replacement for the F8 Tributo — actually, it will be positioned much higher. The new model “will be above the 812 Superfast,” according to Camilleri. That’s an interesting tidbit of information, considering that the 812 Superfast’s front-mounted 6.5-liter V12 produces 800 PS (789 hp) and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque.

We’d imagine the hybrid model will have to deliver an improved power-to-weight ratio to deserve its place in the lineup.

    If it’s yet another hypercar with a turbo v6 with hybrid shit no one will care.

    • DMax

      V6 will be a disappointment for sure. If it’s the top of the range model it needs to be a V12 hybrid or at least a V8, which would still be strange considering 812 below it is a V12.

      Pista/F8’s V8 + hybrid, normal production car

  • Belthronding

    i still have no idea how would they position it among recent products. there is a gap below f8, but appearently they have no interest there.

    • exeptor

      Some of the Ferrari executives said that it will be above 812 (yes, he actually meant 812 and not F8) … but normally there we have LaFerrari like cars. Strange … very strange.

  • Six_Tymes

    i’m intrigued. the torque numbers sound impressive, if true

    • Matteo Tommasi

      The numbers will be bigger then those reported

    The car debuting at the end of May will have a V8, not a V6, and significantly more power than the 812
