Ferrari V12 plans Revealed


There has been information from Ferrari that their V8 engines will be turbocharged, but this does not mean that the V12 will follow suit. According to recent reports the V12 engine, as use din the Maranello will continue to be naturally aspirated.
This applies to the mid term cycle at least as CAR magazine has a special section which discusses the new engines that Ferrari have in more detail.
The fact that the LaFerrari still uses the 6.3 litre engine and manages 800bhp and 516 lb/ft torque shows that the normally aspirted engine certainly still has a lot of life left in it.
In 2016 there will be a mid cycle facelift for the FF and it is expected that it will manage to increase from 660bhp to 700bhp.
In 2016 there will be an improved Berlinetta which has a V12 engine. It does not really need much changed but it will be getting more power and a freshen up and the V12 engine in it will have no turbocharger and there will be no hybrid system either.
However, there are electric models in the future of Ferrari but on the new models, specifically the 2017 front engine cars and the 2019 mid engine cars.  There has neem mo information yet on how they will be looking at the electronic issues though and whether it will be a plig in hybrid, or something else is not yet known.
There are also plans to make sure that their cars keep with the V12 format that their fans are used to. Their clients will demand it and in order to make things more economical they will be using turbochargers. This will improve the performance and they will be taking other measures to work on improving how economical the cars are.
They lightweight technology being used by Ferrari is already some of the best around and so that they will be economical in that way. They will be still using aluminium most of the time although there are carbon fibre parts and the new modular structures will be 20 to 50 kilos lighter depending on the specific model.
The centre of gravity will be kept as low as possible which means that the composites will be use above the belt line most of the time. There will also be some new eight speed gear boxes which will help to make the car more efficient. There will also be injected aluminium foam used to reinforce the pillars and sills, more sophisticated bonding and hydroformed extrusion panels which will all help. There is even the possibility of a carbon fibre roof and possibly composite hand on panels, integrated light weight air deflection elements which has small hydraulic actuators.
