The new Ferrari, code-named F171, will become Maranello’s next hybrid supercar after the SF90 Stradale. Although the Italian brand has been tight-lipped about the development of this car so far, it is understood that this car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and an electric motor for hybrid power.
However, what makes it unique is that the F171 will only use rear-wheel drive instead of the SF90’s all-wheel drive layout. Like the SF90, the new model will provide limited pure electric operation, although it will not be an extensive plug-in hybrid system. Early prototypes of the new hybrid car used a heavily modified LaFerrari chassis, but the latest model used an improved production body, including a fake exhaust pipe at the rear.
It is also said that the hybrid V6 power system will also appear in the upcoming Purosangue SUV. Together with Purosangue, the new hybrid car is likely to help expand Ferrari’s influence and lineup, and will further advance the brand’s electrification plan.
The F171 will compete with the upcoming McLaren Artura, which also has a similar powertrain setup. Earlier this year, Ferrari also confirmed that it will launch its first fully electric supercar, It may be a dual-motor all-wheel drive two-seater in 2025.
