Of course, the majority of that power will come from the V-12 engine. According to Automobile, it will be an 800-horsepower, 7.3-liter unit. Mated to a 120-horsepower hybrid/KERS system (a la HY-KERS), it could total up to 920 horsepower. Of course, hybrid power math is never that simple--the total figure is usually something smaller than the simple sum of the two parts.
Still, a super high-tech Ferrari with something well north of 800 horsepower at the crank is something we can get behind, or, ideally, into. Unfortunately, the time frame for the Enzo's replacement remains uncertain, though at this point, it has to be nearer than farther. A debut sometime in 2014 could be possible.
Aside from the huge power output, the Enzo's replacement is expected to weigh in around 2,500 pounds, use a mid-engine layout, with a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, wearing F70 badging. We'll keep you posted on further details as they develop.
