Finally here we are. After weeks of spy photos and stolen shots, the Ferrari V6 hybrid will be unveiled as a world premiere. In fact, from Maranello they have released an official teaser video in which the debut of the new model of the Cavallino is announced for June 24th. The unveil was announced by Davide Tonizza, Ferrari eSports driver and F1 Pro Series 2019 world champion who anticipated the arrival of the new Red in front of the simulator, known internally by the code name F171.
The new Ferrari model that will be equipped with the V6 hybrid will have a 3.0-liter unit that will be supplemented by an electric motor thus ensuring a full electric autonomy which according to the first rumors should be higher than that currently guaranteed by the SF90 Stradale, reaching at least 30 km of “zero emissions” travel. The powertrain instead should guarantee 700 hp thanks to the combination of the new cylinders and the electric unit. The engine will be centrally positioned, unlike the SF90 Stradale and the F171 will be offered in the rear-wheel drive configuration only. The new hybrid Red was designed by Maranello to rival McLaren Artura, the new hybrid from Woking that has a 680 hp powertrain overall.

Still no certain indication for what concerns the design of the new Ferrari since the only prototypes that have been intercepted on the road have always been covered by eye-catching camouflage and based on pre-existing models with body modifications. However, the first signs indicate that the new Ferrari V6 hybrid it will draw inspiration in part from the design of the flagship Ferrari SF90 Stradale, including a familiar front fascia and similar headlights. The interior details remain a mystery, but it is reasonable to assume that this too will bear some similarities to the cabin of the SF90.
