Ferrari Hybrid V8 Will Not Make You Miss The V12, New Supercar Coming In 2019

As you might imagine from such a project, the “hybrid element will be much more of mainstay of the powertrain than it was in the LaFerrari.” The combination of a twin-turbo V8 (most likely the 3.9-liter engine in the 488 Pista) with hybrid won’t be exclusive to the supercar mentioned by Marchionne. Remember the Ferrari Utility Vehicle? That model, which has the makings of a commercial hit, is also supposed to sport eight cylinders, forced induction, and some sort of hybridization.

Codenamed F16X and coming as a reply to the Lamborghini Urus, the FUV is a bit of a mystery for the time being. Depending on who you ask, production kicks off in 2020 or 2021, and on that bombshell, four doors expected from the newcomer. But in a similar fashion to the Mazda RX-8, the rear doors are understood to be hidden.

The question is, why would Ferrari consider hybridization for its next crop of supercars and first-ever utility vehicle? On the one hand, more stringent CO2 emissions and fuel economy standards are looming on the horizon. On the other, turbocharging and natural aspiration can only go so far, which is why a KERS-style system would complement internal combustion like a hand in glove.

But still, comparing a hybrid V8 with the feeling of a V12 is hogwash.
