A Ferrari inspired by a Bugatti? Well, if Ferrari is understood correctly, the much-anticipated successor to the Ferrari Enzo has been shaped by the Bugatti Veyron.

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

Previous reports have said that the successor to the Ferrari Enzo will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 pushing over 700-hp. Power will be transferred to the ground via a seven-speed sequential gearbox, with a dual-clutch setup. Other reports have even suggested that the next Ferrari Enzo will use the gasoline/hybrid technology shown in the Ferrari 599 GTB HY-KERS concept.

The Ferrari Enzo successor is expected to show up sometime in 2012.
