The Ferrari Enzo successor aka F70, codenamed F150 Maranello

Would you look at that, Ferrari even shares with us some teasers of the upcoming Ferrari Enzo replacement. But that is all we get to know for now, except it will debut in a few months.

The front reminds me a little bit of a Formula 1 car with large wheel arches, while the back follows the line started with the F12 Berlinetta. Flavio Manzoni even made a comparison with a F1 car, saying this will be the closest thing to a Formula 1 car that was ever built. There's even a possibility the V12 engine will be a lot like the Ferrari F1 motor.

Together with the V12, Ferrari will also use the HY-KERS, Kinetic Energy Recovery System or more simply regenerative braking, used in F1 but adapted for the "F70". The system stores energy in a battery that can be used when the driver wants to boost power via an electric motor. The system was introduced in the 599 HY-KERS.
