A new “aluminum-intensive architecture” underpinning the F171 will also help offset the weight of the hybrid system. As for the output, this setup is expected to generate around 700 horsepower, with the V6 producing around 590 hp and the electric motor adding an extra 110 hp. A model name hasn’t been confirmed, but Ferrari has already scrapped plans to revive the Dino nameplate.
Effectively, this means the F171 will replace the V8-powered F8 Tributo, which produces 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque from a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8. Combined with the instant response and torque provided by the electric motors, the F171 will be thrilling to drive thanks to new driver-assist electronics such as slide control and rapid, more responsive steering. Ferrari’s new hybrid supercar will be revealed sooner, rather than later, too, as the publication claims the F171 will debut later this year and go on sale with a price tag of more than £200,000 ($278,125).
