Ferrari has issued video of its new HY-KERS hybrid system bound for the new Enzo successor due later in 2012. It mates a V12 petrol engine with a brace of electric motors – one to drive the car’s ancillary systems like cooling and power assistance, and the larger one to drive the rear wheels.
This teaser video doesn’t give away any incredible performance figures, but it does afford a glimpse into Maranello’s thinking for its new hypercar. CO2 emissions will drop 40% compared with the same V12 without hybrid assistance.
Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa told CAR the new HY-KERS hybrid system would make the car 10% quicker from 0-124mph – so we can expect – literally – electric performance, despite a likely weight gain of ‘just over 100kg’.
