Ferrari’s next hybrid hypercar takes shape


The successor to the LaFerrari has been spied testing, featuring an electrified powertrain and a race car look.

Codenamed F250, the new hypercar is expected to debut in 2024. Ferrari is rumoured to be producing only 599 examples, along with 199 Spiders and 30 track-only specials.

This isn’t a production-spec example, and we expect to see various visual changes on the final model. For example, this prototype features faux exhaust outlets; the real ones are hiding behind mesh.

We can see some of the race car-like styling cues of the new model, however, including doors that are cut into the roof – making access easier for drivers wearing helmets – plus a heavily sculpted rear diffuser.

It’s unclear what will power the F250, but there will be some kind of hybrid set-up. Whether it will have six, eight or even 12 cylinders isn’t yet known.

While V12s are rapidly disappearing, Lamborghini recently revealed its Revuelto with an electrified V12.

The LaFerrari, produced from 2013 to 2018, was the Prancing Horse brand’s first hybrid, featuring a 6.3-litre V12 teamed with an electric motor.

Following the end of production for the model, Ferrari introduced the plug-in hybrid SF90 Stradale which uses a twin-turbocharged V8 mated with three electric motors.

It subsequently introduced the 296, which uses a twin-turbo V6 mated with two electric motors.
