Ferrari to Unveil Hybrid Sports Car at Geneva Motor Show

[social_buttons]

Well, it’s finally happening. Ferrari is officially making a hybrid…or at least officially showcasing one.

At the Geneva Motor Show in March, Ferrari will display a hybrid variant of their 599 GTB Fiorano. Details on the car are still a mystery but it will likely utilize the all-wheel drive hybrid system that Ferrari patented in June of last year.

The battery source will be lithium-ion and it will use a version of the KERS energy recovery system. There is speculation the hybrid version will increase the model’s fuel efficiency from 9 mpg to 14. Not a huge savings.
