We’ve been hearing about Ferrari going green for some time now. Last month, it was reported that Ferrari filed for a patent application for a four-wheel-drive hybrid system. It is said that the system could be fitted to Ferrari”s future front and rear-engine models.
Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa today confirmed that the Italian automaker is working on a hybrid concept car in order to study how it can better meet stringent 2014 European emissions regulations.
Felisa said that Ferrari continues to study turbocharging, but insisted that the engines would “still have that high-revving Ferrari feeling.” He said that biofuel is also being explored by the engineers in Maranello.
So when will we see this new Ferrari hybrid concept?
“Not at Frankfurt,” Felisa said, “but shortly thereafter, probably at an American show.” Meaning we can probably cross our fingers for the 2009 LA Auto Show in December.
