Ferrari hybrid supercar prototype spotted on tests


Photos have surfaced of a prototype Italian supercar Ferrari, which is powered by a V6 hybrid engine. The car underwent a series of tests near the automaker’s plant.

Western journalists have published photographs of the mysterious Ferrari prototype. Behind its disguise is the body of the SF90 Stradale hybrid supercar. It is worth noting that this prototype sports car, which was seen on the roads of the Italian city of Maranello, makes a rather strange sound. It’s not a faint whirring of the electric motor, but the distinct “warble” of a V6 engine. Rumor has it that Ferrari engineers are testing a new V6-powered hybrid supercar that could compete with Britain’s McLaren Altura.

It’s no secret that Ferrari is working on a V6 supercar that will match the 986bhp SF90 and possibly replace the current V8-powered F8 Tributo.

For Ferrari, the main legacy is the V12 engine, which was highly praised by the founder of the company, Enzo Ferrari, who most championed this engine.

Dino Ferrari, who is the late son of Enzo Ferrari, was instrumental in the development of early mid-engined Ferrari models, which included the V6 engine. Enzo was not a big fan of this project, but work on the project nevertheless continued.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Ferrari may still continue to use an environmentally friendly V12 engine. In a recent interview with representatives of the Italian company, TopGear reporters learned that the automaker plans to “keep” the powerful V12 engine alive. They called it a mainstay for the company.
