Ferrari To Make Hybrid Version of 599 Coupe
In brief: Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezelmo announced that a prototype hybrid Ferrari 599 will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in March and the hybrid 599 will see production.
Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: 599 Hybrid
Although the car won't likely be a gas-sipper, Ferrari does hold patents on several all-wheel-drive hybrid power trains.
The surprise announcement came at the Ferrari Formula One presentation to kick off the 2010 season.
The current 599 GTB uses a 620hp engine that gets 8.7mpg in city driving. A hybrid version may boost that by 35%, so the resulting 11.75mpg isn't exactly competition for the Prius.
And so ...
In looks, though, it will be all Ferrari, something that no other car company can match.
