You're looking at our best view yet of the upcoming successor to the Ferrari Enzo. Rumours kicking around the web insist the new reigning monarch of the Italian kingdom will carry the "F150" name when it bows, otherwise known as the Special Limited Series. Word has it Ferrari has focused all of its experience in Formula One to create the new model. According to the manufacturer's official online magazine, the new ultracar will boast a carbon fibre monocoque chassis built in "an almost handmade style" using four types of the composite. We aren't sure exactly what that means, but the design should keep weight to a minimum.

Power should come courtesy of an 800 horsepower V12 engine married to a HY-KERS system good for an additional 100 hp. Early estimates say the creation will tip the scales at under 1,360 kilograms (3,000 pounds), which means the vehicle will be a performance marvel. Sounds like a party.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but considering the legal issues that Ferrari encountered with Ford when it tried to name it's Formula 1 car the F150, wouldn't it be unlikely for them to try to apply that name to this car? Perhaps they've reached some agreement with Ford in anticipation of this. For a refresher on that case read: http://www.insideline.com/ferrari/ford-ferrari-settle-f150-suit.html
