Report: No turbochargers for Ferrari V12s

The automotive industry is in love with forced-induction–not only is it popular among consumers, it’s a way for automakers to penny-pinch their way to higher overall fuel economy figures.

But in a new report from CAR Magazine, word is that Ferrari will stray from the technology for its top-range V12 motors–thank the car lords above.

The Italian supercar maker plans to keep their V12s special with natural aspiration while electrification, such as the hybridization of the LaFerrari, is still seen as the future course of action.

The FF is speculated to be the first V12 model to receive a mid-cycle refresh, including a power boost to around 700hp. Following the FF is the F12 Berlinetta and that could receive updates along similar lines. Though no hybrid version is expected for either of these models.
