The successor to the Ferrari F12 will retain the supercar’s 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, according to Germany’s AutoBild magazine.
The report indicates the replacement to the F12 is due in 2019. The 6.3-liter engine will remain, however we’re expecting the powerplant to be joined by some sort of electrification system similar to the LaFerrari’s.
Ferrari’s V12 produces 730 horsepower in the F12, but makes 769 horsepower in the F12 TdF and 789 horsepower in the LaFerrari. We’re expecting it to produce around 800 horsepower in the F12 successor, which could bring total output close to 1,000 horsepower if paired to electric motor.
2019 is still a long ways out, so we’re expecting Ferrari to apply a mild update to the F12 sometime before the next-generation car arrives
