With Ferrari set to debut the long-awaited Enzo replacement sometime around 2012-13, a few details are beginning to emerge as to what can be expected. Since the Enzo was released, a little car called the Bugatti Veyron came into the scene and completely rewrote the supercar rules. Ferrari, if anyone should be surprised, has taken note. Although the Enzo was powered by a 6.0-liter V12 with 651 hp and 485 lb-ft of torque, the new car may in fact be powered by a direct-injection twin-turbocharged V8.
And like the Enzo being sort of an experiment for Ferrari regarding the application of Formula 1-inspired traits such as the carbon fiber body, F1 gearbox, and ceramic disc brakes, the new car will continue with this blueprint. According to a report from Autocar, the new flagship is expected to make use of Ferrari's latest aerodynamic technology, called "active aerodynamics" that pumps air out through the car's body which influences the way airflows over and even under the skin. Ferrari is obviously keeping a tight lid on the details and we're still quite some time away before the big reveal.
