Gotcha! 1000 HP Ferrari Hybrid Supercar Filmed Testing In Italy

Ferrari will unveil a 1000 hp hybrid supercar at the end of the month, and a new clip reportedly showing this new vehicle has been uploaded on Instagram.

Unlike most videos, which simply show camouflaged prototypes going about their business, this one involves a bit of chasing, too.

The description notes that they were driving a 488 Spider when they stumbled across the Ferrari prototype bathed in thick camouflage. Shortly after they managed to get up behind the prototype, the Ferrari test driver behind the wheel made them and swiftly pulled into a parking lot next to the road, trying to hide behind a row of cars.

The guys in the 488 Spider quickly realized what is going on and chased the prototype around the parking lot, all while giggling to themselves. The test driver eventually pulled back onto the road and was again followed by the 488, though he was able to lose them after indicating left but aggressively turning to the right instead.

An official invitation to the premiere of this new Ferrari model on May 31 was recently published online, confirming that the car will have 1000 CV – that’s 986 hp.

Limited details about the car’s powertrain are known at this moment, but we know it will be some kind of hybrid. There are conflicting reports about whether it will be a twin-turbocharged V6 or a twin-turbocharged V8, but either way, it should be searingly fast.

    With a 1000 PS that’s a V8 for sure ! I believe that the V6 Hybrid is there for more conventionnal models like the Portofino, the Purosangue SUV or the GTC4Lusso’s replacement. And then after that I think that the F8’s replacement will have a more powerful version of the V6 Hybrid at nearly 750 to 800 PS.
    The V6 2.9 liter Biturbo Hybrid and the V8 3.9 liter Biturbo Hybrid are gonna have so much power, torque and efficiency that the only thing that will remain to the Naturally Aspirated V12 will be the sound.
