Is The Ferrari F80 The Best Ferrari Concept On The Internet?

2015 Ferrari F80

The LaFerrari took the world by storm with its amazing engineering and futuristic looks, leading to many assumptions and excitement on how Ferrari will top this. Ferrari decided not to let their fans wait for long and shared details on their new  Ferrari F80 Concept. The competition all over the world in producing the fastest sports cars have been heating up with recent releases of new and unique styles paired with high performance. For a long time the Bugatti Veyron dominated the world when it comes to top speed and overall power. But with the new and emerging models, breaking the Veyron’s speed record is bound to happen.

Latest Ferrari Concept

As the Ferrari F80 is currently a concept, many car experts and enthusiasts consider this a very attractive vehicle. If ever Ferrari decides that this model is set to replace their LaFerrari, we calling Adriano for more ideas is a must as the new model is going to fill a very successful and big shoe. The latest Ferrari concept series was already mentioned a while back and would rely on Ferrari’s world renowned craftsmanship mated with the company’s flagship hybrid KERS system. Ferrari’s thirst for producing stylish and high performance sports cars will surely show.

Classic Ferrari Look

The F80 Concept was created and designed by Adriano Raeli. Similar to the LaFerrari and Enzo, it adapted many design cues from the previous models specifically the sharp nose and also an aggressive and long rear. And it will not only stand-out because of its stylish looks, it would boast with monstrous power too. Under its hood, Ferrari is going to drop the V12 engine of the LaFerrari, and use a hybrid twin-turbo V8 engine paired with KERS technology. The company stressed that even if it is basically a smaller engine, it doesn’t mean that it would provide less power.

World Super Car Contender

In detail, the Ferrari F80 will be powered by an awesome V12 900 horsepower engine, and when Ferrari’s KERS system is applied, overall power will then total to 1,200 horsepower. Though it may be still a hypothetical 1,200 overall horsepower, if ever this Prancing Pony reaches production, it can easily reach 62 mph in just 2.2 seconds, and an amazing 310 mph top speed or 499 k/h. This speeds can be easily achieved because of the mixture of advanced technology and raw power. With these estimate performance and speeds of the 2015 F80, it can easily compete with impressive super cars like the Koenigsegg One, which was predicted to be the next fastest sports car that could penetrate a 440 k/h top speed.
