Ferrari Enzo Successor Composite Chassis Debuts in Paris [VIDEOS]

Ferrari will launch the first hybrid model in its history in the near future. Ferrari has chosen Paris Motor Show to debut this new supercar’s new composite chassis derived directly from Formula 1 technologies.

The chassis uses four different types of carbon-fibre and is hand-laminated then cured in autoclaves following engineering processes which optimise the design by integrating the different components.

The overall chassis is 20 per cent lighter compared to the Enzo and torsional rigidity is increased by 27 per cent and beam stiffness is up by 22 per cent.

Ferrari’s new supercar is expected to use the same V12 6.2-litre engine found in the F12 Berlinetta modified to produce close to 800bhp. Part of the powertrain is also F1-derived KERS with around 118bhp.
