Ferrari Enzo Successor Previewed; Rich Dudes Leak Details

Lifestyles of the rich and loose-lipped.

A group of the world's most important Ferrari collectors are being given a chance to behold the Italian Jesus Supercar this week, and while odds are good Ferrari is making them all sign non-disclosure agreements that guarantee Maranello the right to confiscate someone's mansion if they blab, the anonymity of the Internet (or perhaps their confidence in their lawyers) lets some potential Ferrari Enzo successor buyers discuss what they heard...

According to reputable accounts from both FerrariChat and Teamspeed, here are the facts about the Ferrari currently known only as Project F150 that we're pretty confident are true (i.e. reported by multiple sources):

->Total engine output will be 950 horsepower—800 of which comes from the V12, the other 150 generated by the KERS system.

->Only 499 will be built, with a pricetag of €1.2 million in Europe (possibly including taxes).

->It'll be launched at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, with customer deliveries beginning in December.

->Weight around 2,800 pounds.

->The V12 redlines at 9,200 rpm. Maximum torque will be available starting at 1,000 rpm, likely in part due to KERS.

And here are the facts that, while we have no real reason not to believe them, have been reported by only one source:

->0-62 mph comes in 3.0 seconds, 0-124 mph in 7.0 seconds.

->Top speed of around 230 mph.

->Braking from 124 mph to zero in 380 feet.

->Chassis made of carbon fiber and Kevlar.

->A Nürburgring Nordschleife time estimated at less than seven minutes, and a Fiorano lap time of 1:20 with Fernando Alonso driving.

->A fixed seat and adjustable paddles (or possibly, pedals. Or both).

->A squared-off steering wheel with F1-style controls.

->All-digital gauges

->F1-style nose cone, active spoiler, and active flaps

->All cars delivered in Maranello, so buyers can receive proper training

->Ferrari will make buyers sign a contract granting the car maker first right of refusal if the owner wants to sell, and allowing Ferrari to buy it back at purchase price.

If we're really, really lucky, Ferrari may reveal pictures of the finished car this month, in advance of its official Geneva debut. Expect to see something like the image at the top of the post—that picture was cropped from one lucky potential owner's personal invitation. Now, we're off to rob some banks.
