New Ferrari ‘Dino’ V6 Hybrid on the way

Codenamed F171 and set to rival the likes of the upcoming McLaren Artura, the New ‘Dino’ V6 Hybrid Ferrari has been caught on test and is set to unveiled to a private audience later this year with an official unveiling early 2022.

The new supercar from Maranello  is expected to have 3.0-litre turbo V6 with an electric motor producing V8 levels of power. Developing around 440kW, the Ferrari F171 will pair it with an axial-flow electric motor mounted after the transmission developing around 82kW – for a total output of around522kW.

The 3.0-litre engine is the car makers first V6 engine since the Dino in the 70’s, rumour has it the V6 engine could come from a tweaked version of the Nettuno V6 found in Maserati’s MC20 sportscar. The 3.0-litre hybrid V6 is also expected to eventually make its way into the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue SUV.

Currently the only hybrid offered by Ferrari is the awesome SF90 which has a motor on the front axle to offer all-wheel drive, the new F171 will be rear drive only and like the SF90,it will offer limited electric-only running, although it won’t be an expansive plug-in hybrid system.

According to Ferrari’s Chief Technical Officer, Michael Leiters, “the near future is definitely about electrification, not pure electrification, but hybridization”. The F171 is a fine balance between performance and weight,Liters explained. The F171 needs to feel like a proper Ferrari, a proper driver’s car.
