For the New Dino, Perhaps?
We’ve known for a while that Ferrari is working on a new V6 hybrid powertrain for some of its future vehicles. What exactly those vehicles are is yet to be seen. UK publication CAR Magazine recently reported that the new powertrain could make as much as 723 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque.
That’s quite a lot of power and would be perfect for a new Ferrari Dino that has been rumored for some time. CAR reports that the Dino has been an on again, off again project for the company for some time now. Several people high up with the company liked the idea of a new Dino, especially the late Sergio Marchionne. However, as of yet, nothing has come.
There’s also the chance that a future Ferrari SUV could have the powertrain. That would make it a serious contender with the other SUVs on the market from Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and Lamborghini. Ferrari has not said yet what will power its upcoming SUV, though it has said the name will be Purosangue.
It will be interesting to see where the V6 hybrid powertrain lands in the Ferrari lineup. It would make sense for the company to use the powertrain in multiple models, so there’s a chance that it could end up in the Dino and the Purosangue. Only time will tell.
