Ferrari's upcoming hypercar could downsize to a V6 hybrid

The upcoming Ferrari F250 could be the brand's first four-wheel-drive hypercar.

Ferrari has been working on its all-new hypercar, codenamed F250, for nearly a year now. The new hypercar from the Italian brand is a replacement for the LaFerrari, which came out in 2013.

As per reports, the new Ferrari hypercar will borrow a lot of elements from its F1 & Le Mans technology to make the ultimate road car. The prototype, spied on multiple occasions, gives us a glimpse of what to expect. It shows the car sitting low down, with plenty of air vents in the front and a large wing, along with a massive diffuser at the rear. Further to this, the new hypercar can also be seen with narrow cabin proportions and several air channels along the bodywork.

However, reports also suggest that the new hypercar could come fitted with a 3.0-litre V6 derived from the brand's 296 GTB, as well as, on the Ferrari 499P Le Mans car. The V6 though will be paired with a hybrid power unit. This is in line with the brand's pledge to offer tech from its F1 & Le Mans cars, both of which are powered by V6 engines. Reports also state that considering the 296 GTB itself makes 819 BHP, the upcoming hypercar could offer well over 1000 BHP of power output.

Also, with the V6 engine paired with a powerful hybrid setup potentially powering the front wheels, the upcoming Ferrari F250 could be the brand's first four-wheel-drive hypercar.
