Set to be faster off the line and overall than the Veyron, the F70 is the car to look out for in 2013.
These aren't the first renderings of the hotly-anticipated Enzo replacement but their arguably the best so far. The design study for the reportedly named F70 comes from Constantin-Gabriel Radu, an industrial designer and employee of Pininfarina's German subsidiary Russelsheim. Aside from a distinct lack of air vents on the sides and rear, the concept is a nice piece of work with inspiration coming from both the previous Enzo and the Ferrari 458 Italia.
It was recently claimed the F70 will have the same 6.3-liter V12 as the F12 and FF but with more power. The engine will also be mated to a KERS driveline that has a pair of electric motors, one for the rear wheels and the other powering the car's auxiliary systems, allowing for zero-emission travel as well as assisting the V12 to create 920hp. Ferrari hopes that a carbon fiber body and an aluminum chassis will help keep weight down to no more than 2550 lbs. Ferrari also wants the F70 to be both faster off the line and overall than the Bugatti Veyron and it could actually beat the Veyron's 0-62mph time of 2.46 seconds.
Pricing will likely be north of the Enzo's $700,000 sticker with a very limited build number. Hopefully official pictures of the car will emerge this fall prior to an official unveiling at next year's Geneva Motor Show.
