In a BBC interview, Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna stated the nice ol’ inside combustion engine is “an important a part of the corporate’s heritage,” with all Ferrari automobiles having that soulful sound from its high-strung, gas-powered V8 and V12 engines. “It’s the consumer who should select if they need an ICE, a hybrid, or an electrical automobile,” stated Vigna. “I do not wish to be conceited and impose a alternative on our consumer.”
Ferrari lately unveiled its latest road-legal hybrid supercars, the primary below the automaker’s racing-oriented XX program: the SF90 XX Stradale coupe and spider. Geared up with a twin-turbocharged gasoline-fed V8 engine, three electrical motors, and a 7.9 kWh plug-in hybrid battery, the latest Ferrari XX fashions have 1,015 horsepower, can go from zero to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds, and journey for 15 miles in EV mode.
And regardless of rumors that the Daytona SP3 could possibly be the final V12-powered Ferrari, the automaker is hedging its bets on artificial e-fuel and hybrid know-how to protect its lineage amidst the electrified period.
