Watch Motorcyclist Try To Keep Up With New Ferrari Hybrid Hypercar Prototype

The upcoming Ferrari hybrid hypercar has been spotted again, this time by a motorcyclist, who decided to follow it for a few miles before calling it quits a day. It resulted in an exciting footage, shot using the helmet camera, which shows the amazing acceleration of the yet-to-be-named model.

The electrified Ferrari was seen on the back-roads of Maranello, Italy, near the manufacturer’s headquarters, according to a member of the FerrariChat forum.

Despite being followed by a Yamaha Tracer 900, which uses a 115 PS (113 hp / 85 kW) 847cc, three-cylinder engine, with a top speed of 230 km/h (140 mph), it managed to get away for a few moments. That’s when the rider decided to take a shortcut, and a few moments later, at the 5:05 mark, we catch another glimpse of it, coming from the opposite way.

Due to the heavy camouflage and filming angles, we couldn’t make much of it. However, it will premiere at the end of next week, on May 31, so we won’t have to wait that long to see it in an official environment and learn all the juicy details. The rumor mill says we should expect less than 3 seconds for the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint, with some more hyped reports claiming that it could do it in 2 seconds flat (!).

The hybrid Ferrari has been confirmed to have 1,000 PS (986 hp / 736 kW), which will make it the Prancing Horse’s new top dog, slotting above the 800 PS (789 hp / 588 kW) 812 Superfast. It’s believed that it uses either a V6 or a V8, with twin-turbocharging, but further details remain scarce.
