The Ferrari LaFerrari is a $1.4 million, 959-horsepower piece of engineering genius. It’s a worthy successor to the Enzo, and one of the most talked about cars of the past few years. But when it’s gone, something will need to step in its place. The Ferrari F80 Raeli concept could be that successor.
The concept was created by Italian designer Adriano Raeli. Like the Enzo and LaFerrari it would hypothetically follow, the F80 takes a page right out of the Pininfarina design book—albeit with a few new modern tweaks. The sharp nose and long, aggressive rear remind us of Ferrari supercars past, but the aggressive intake systems and aerodynamics make it an entirely new, unique vehicle from top to bottom.
But it wouldn’t just be pretty, it’d be powerful too. Under the hood, Adriano expects Ferrari to drop the displacement some from the V12 currently found in the LaFerrari, to a twin-turbo hybrid V8 using Ferrari’s KERS technology. But less displacement doesn’t mean less power.
A hypothetical 1,200 horsepower would come from this Prancing Pony, giving it a 0-62 mph time of only 2.2 seconds, and a jaw-dropping top speed of 310 mph.
Of course, the whole project is a big “what if?”—albeit a very pretty one. If/when Ferrari does decide to replace the LaFerrari, we suggest they call up Adriano for some ideas.
