Fastest, Most Powerful Ferrari Ever Coming Next Year

Not two weeks ago, Ferrari introduced the F12 Berlinetta (pictured), the 740-hp car that's now the fastest, most powerful Ferrari road car ever. That coupe will have a pretty short ride at the top, though. The F70, Ferrari's Enzo successor that was originally supposed to debut this year, will make its debut sometime next winter. Ferrari describes the car as its fastest, most powerful road offering ever, meaning it will bump the F12 to number 2.

In spring 2010, Fiat laid out several years of new Ferraris and said that the Enzo successor was due for a 2012 debut.

That will only prove a partial truth, because Ferrari plans to show the car to potential clients late in the year. But the actual public debut won't happen until next year. A spokesman told Auto News Europe that, while a final date hasn't been set, Detroit and Geneva are lead contenders at the moment. Geneva played host to the FF and F12 debuts over the past two years, so it would seem the natural choice.

Ferrari didn't go into any details outside of calling the car the fastest, most powerful - something that anyone following recent Ferrari history would have deducted on his own. Rumors fill in the blanks with an 800-hp 7.3-liter V-12 engine and a hybrid power assist system worth up to 120-hp. That's up to 920-hp of "most powerful ever."

We have no idea how fast the F70 will be, but with a carbon fiber chassis and body keeping weight down, that potent hybrid powertrain should have plenty of leeway in spiking the speedometer. Reports say that Ferrari is aiming for a weight of around 2,500 lbs.
