"Ferrari WILL Turbocharge Its V12, Factory Sources Say!"
Quote>"That news, though UNCORROBORATED, contradicts some earlier reports that suggested Ferrari would add hybrid technology to its V12s but stick with naturally aspirated power. The source claims that while the cylinder count won’t drop, the V12’s cubic capacity will be reduced from its current 6.5-liters."
Quote>"If, as rumored, Ferrari drops a V12 into its upcoming Purosangue SUV, then that too would probably be a natural fit for a turbocharged V12 and its strong low-rev pull, while all-wheel drive would help control a power output that could theoretically top 1000 hp in its most extreme form."
Very interesting indeed. Ferrari apparently stated previously they would never produce an SUV. Now they are.
Lamborghini are utilising a naturally aspirated V12 plus hybridity electrical assistance drives.
Looks like 1000hp, once a Bugatti stronghold albiet over a decade ago is becoming common place amongst more manufacturers.
Aston Martin have TWO projects at either near, or over that level. Mercedes Benz AMG have one too.
And I'm talking about manufacturers with LEGACY status, not a "hypercar" manufacturer traditionalists.
There will be HUNDREDS of these beasts. No THOUSANDS!
Like the Porsche 918. We saw one on the motorway coming out of Bournemouth to London on business. Stunningly beautiful car in the first morning light. It looked like a ****ing UFO in comparison to the mundane vehicles surrounding it. Never will forget it.
Dynamically balanced, as all things should be.
