The First Ferrari Hybrid

Fri, 29 Jun 2007, 03:58PM

Ferrari is showing off it's green with a new concept, high performance vehicle, the Ferrari FFX Millechili. Yes, it's a hybrid, and uses it's electric drive train not just to boost power but also to increase efficiency.
What's really exciting about the FFX is that its made of lightweight materials including carbon fiber, plastic and cardboard.

Eh? Cardboard?! Well, apparently so. I'm not sure if this is just to make the prototype easier to build, or of Ferrari really is considering its use in vehicles, but, in any case, using light weight materials to increase efficiency is extremely necessary.

Additionally, the FFX incorporates an advanced aerodynamic undercarriage system that uses jets of air to keep whirlpools of drag from forming beneath the car.

Autonnews update

one radical idea - no seats - the upholstery mounted right on the chassis, cuts length by 3 in & lowers weight by 110 lbs

They state twin - turbo 3.0 L V-8 rated at 550 hp
