Ferrari’s Upcoming AWD Hybrid Concept – Jalopnik

9 06 2009

    Ferrari files loads of patent’s on hybrids, Jalopnik goes under the hood and finds out the Ferrari hybrid is the not a prius philosophy. But overall, what a cool concept — switching on the electric motor (and switching off the gas engine) at low speeds improving mpg. Switching on the gas engine when you need that Ferrari growl and power.  And potentially switching on both when you need an extra AWD kick and stability. 

    Only question is how will the electric motor sound? the image of a ferrari rolling by quietly like a prius, just kills me, just kills me..
