(Scroll down for video) Ferrari showed off its newest super speed lightweight car, according to press reports.
Ferrari pulled the tarp from the new explosive Hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show after its first appearance on a show last September in Paris.
The company has already held a ceremony at its headquarters in Maranello to give their most valuable customers a first look at the Enzo successor, nicknamed F150.
Parts from the event was revealed to the public which showed that the car will be powered by a V12 engine similar to that used in both F12 and FF cars, but this car will have a KERS system attached to it, making a very serious 706kW.
This will give the new vehicle a high advantage over the hyper hybrid Porsche, the 918 Spyder. There will be 918 cars built in 2014, with production starting in December.
Information on the production of the new Ferrari supercar are a little sketchier, but it is believed that only 499 will be built, with a price tag of around $1.5 million.
It is also said that the car is equipped with an exhaust pipe which is very high tech and very unique, to make it sound like a real F1 car when it reaches the top of its speed range. The car can go from zero to sixty MPH in 3 seconds.
