For Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary celebration at its headquarters in Maranello this week, the supercar company has unveiled its future strategy for improving its image in the eyes of environmentalists. Apart from the official formalities and the release of the 60th anniversary edition of the 612 Scaglietti, Ferrari showcased for the first time a new design study called the FXX Millechili.
Resembling a scaled down version of the Enzo supercar, the Millechili is not a concept of a future model per se, but is in fact a cardboard and plastic model that is supposed to represent the carmaker’s new goal of achieving efficiency in performance - it weighs just 1,000kg.
As part of the presentation, Ferrari engineers revealed details of new super-slippery aerodynamic shapes, biofuel capable models and a new hybrid-electric design. This latest study shows that developers are also chasing extreme weight reduction in future models, a goal that we can only applaud them for. Image courtesy of Winding Road
