Caught on camera the new Ferrari F70

The Ferrari F70 is known to be the most advanced car the world renowned auto maker has ever created. It has left its rivals like Lamborghini Reventón and Bugatti Veyron hanging on the trail. This car will break away from the standards in various more ways than you can imagine. Compared to its predecessor which is the Ferrari Enzo, this is said to be much faster and more focused. It is also said to be smaller, lighter and a lot more fuel efficient. The power of the car comes from the twin turbo v8. This is the first of its kind after the launching of F40 in 1987. This has certainly classified it to be a hypercar. Basically the overall make up of the car was inspired by the FXX scheme. The downsized hyper car was taken from the Millechilli concept.

The Ferrari F70 has shown that the car manufacturer will be shedding weight to increase the performance of future models.  The F70 is 365kg lighter than the enzo. Basically, Ferrari has put every weight saving measure to attain that number. Its leading competitor, McLaren is winning in the area of lightweight construction. This is something that served as their basis for their MP4-12C supercar. Ferrari wants to be at the top in this area. For this reason they added carbon fiber body panels, carbon ceramic brakes and less add ons in the cabin.

It also has reduced Co2 emission. Based on the test, it lowers down the emission by 40 percent. This is not enough as they have to put more focus on the design. The numbers of the Ferrari F70 are practically the same as with Enzo’s however the lower weight of the car will take the performance to the next level. In less than three seconds the car will reach about 60 mph. The top speed of the car is 230 mph. Just like the Enzo, there will be only about 399 in production. It adheres to the Ferrari’s principle for building one less car than they can sell. To own this car you need to be invited personally by Ferrari and you need to have £600,000 in your bank account.
