Veyron shapes next Ferrari Enzo

The thinking behind the hotly anticipated successor to the Ferrari Enzo is understood to have shaped by the Bugatti Veyron.

Company sources have revealed to Autocar: “The world is a very different place to how it was when the Enzo was launched. It has moved on completely. And we are Ferrari – we do not take part to make up the numbers.”

Autocar understands the Enzo replacement, due in 2012/13, could make use of a direct-injection twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

The original car used a 6.0-litre V12 engine, which produced 651bhp at 7800 rpm and 485lb ft of torque at 5500rpm. Features of the prancing horse’s supercar included Formula 1-inspired carbonfibre body, F1 gearbox and ceramic disc brakes. Also on the features list were active aerodynamics and traction control.

It’s expected the next Enzo will be also be a flagship for Ferrari’s new-generation aerodynamic technology, including ‘active aerodynamics’ that pump air out through the body to influence the way airflows over and under the skin.

You can, for an extra 400 000 Euros.

There are a few F50's that were converted to RHD by Ferrari after they were bought as LHD and taken back by the owners to have them converted profesionally. I'd be surprised if they don't offer that option again for the newer collectables.

"Ferrari" never offered it or did it.... Pinifarina or Michelotto were the ones that did it.

Yes but as usual Pinifarina works close with Ferrari and is given the Ferrari seal of approval, much better than some backyarder doing the job, the car doesn't loose it's value than if some backyarder in Australia or Japan converted it to Rhd.

Ferrari Enzo Replacement Will Have Carbon Chassis and Mid-Mounted V12

By Alistair Weaver

Just the Facts:
    * The Ferrari Enzo replacement will use a mid-mounted V12.
    * It will feature carbon composite construction.
    * A hybrid system is in development and likely to debut in the Enzo replacement.
    * Production models will continue to use an aluminum chassis.


REGGIO EMILIA, Italy — Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa has confirmed that the replacement for the Enzo will have a mid-mounted V12 and use a carbon-fiber chassis. Speaking at the launch of the 458 Spider, Felisa told Inside Line that the car may also employ hybrid technology and confirmed that, "Ferrari is testing hybrid prototypes."

The CEO admitted that some of the knowledge gained from the development of Ferrari's Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) in Formula One could prove relevant to road cars. However, he said that any future Ferrari hybrid system "must focus on improving efficiency and not just be about performance." The introduction of hybrid technology on a future Enzo replacement would be consistent with Ferrari's philosophy of using these cars as test beds for nascent technology.

The use of carbon-composite construction in Ferrari's hypercars is nothing new — both the F50 and the Enzo employed a carbon monocoque. However, Ferrari will not follow McLaren's lead in introducing the technology on regular production models.

"Today it does not make sense," Felisa said. "The weight benefits compared with an aluminum chassis [such as the 458's] are very small and the costs are huge. In the event of an accident, it is also very difficult to identify whether the chassis has been damaged."

Inside Line says: Carbon chassis, V12 power and hybrid sounds like a recipe for a Bugatti Veyron-baiting hypercar.

From the article,
"One thing that must be noted is that the KERS system only gives a power boost for a limited time until the energy is regenerated meaning the Enzo replacement will spend a great deal of time with just 800 horsepower available. It seems a little low"

I can't understand how anyone could drive around with only 800 horsepower in a 1200kg car - may as well walk!!
It puts the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose again.
