While discarding rumors that he will soon leave the company, Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo let loose some details on what we can expect from the next-generation of vehicles from the Italian automaker.
“I want to shape the next product cycle at Ferrari to assure a bright future at a company that has been inextricably intertwined with my life,” Montezemolo said.
Talking about the next limited-edition supercar, Montezemolo said that the successor to the F40, F50 and Enzo, will be the cornerstone of future vehicles from the company. The model, which is due in 2012, will use the gasoline/hybrid technology shown in the Ferrari 599 GTB HY-KERS concept, which debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. That will help the model cut CO2 emissions by 35 percent along with the help of weight reducing technology previews in the 2007 Millechili concept.
“That car will incorporate the state of the art of our knowledge in terms of increasing performances while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. It will then influence all Ferraris that appear after it,” he said.
