Ferrari F150 Supercar Captured at Full Song on Fiorano Test Track
Technical tidbits, spy shots of test mules, and rumors surrounding Ferrari’s replacement for the Enzo, codenamed F150, have been emanating from Maranello for more than a year now, and today we got our first sample of the twelve-cylinder seductress singing its siren song while dressed the closest thing to production bodywork we’ve seen yet. Captured by Marchettino, a fellow who either has lots of connections or free time, the video captures the F150 undergoing testing at the Fiorano circuit and came to our attention via Jalopnik.
- First Drive: 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta
- Road Test: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
- Comparison Test: 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia vs. 2011 McLaren MP4-12C, 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS
For our money, the sweetest sounds come in just before the two-minute mark, when for the first time the F150 can be seen and heard braking, turning in, and accelerating in genuine anger, summoning a banshee-like 12-piston wail. Working silently behind the famous Ferrari growl is the F150′s HY-KERS hybrid system, which is said to add as much as an extra 150 horsepower to the V-12′s rumored existing 800. Ferrari’s next hypercar is expected to debut at the 2013 Geneva auto show in March.
