Ferrari is be working on a new supercar powered by a Formula 1-style V6 hybrid engine, according to reports.

Highly camouflaged 488 GTB development cars have been spotted undergoing winter testing in Sweden. Given that the 488 was recently discontinued and replaced by the F8 Tributo, many believe the cars are being used as a test bed for the V6 new engine.


The V6 hybrid motor will allegedly power a new mid-engined supercar that will sit underneath the F8 Tributo. It’s also rumoured that the powertrain may find its way into the company’s upcoming Purosangue SUV.

A Ferrari 488 test mule with a hybrid V 6 powertrain was caught by spy photographers in Sweden, undergoing cold weather testing. Details of the gasoline-electric merger are completely unknown at this point, however, our spy sources do report hearing a definitive V 6 burble out of the pipes on this car .

Ferrari has confirmed plans to launch an electrified supercar this year, and this new spy video shot in Stuttgart might be showing the model in question. In fact, it was only last week when the company’s CEO, Louis Camilleri, announced during an investor call plans to introduce a hybrid V8 model later

Fans may not have long to wait long for the V6-engined supercar to be unveiled, as an announcement is expected within the next few months.

For now, though, here’s everything we know about Ferrari’s mysterious new model:

Car magazine says it “understands” that Ferrari is planning to take the wraps off the new powertrain in May.

However, it’s not yet known where the company will showcase the engine inside the rumoured entry-level supercar, or under the bonnet of its new SUV, the magazine says.

Perhaps. The Italian marque has considered rebooting the Dino range - named after Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredo, who died of a muscle disorder at the age of 24 - for a new V6-powered supercar, according to Car.

However, US news site Motor1 claims Ferrari is also working on a new model called the 486, which is may take the form of a cheaper, V6 hybrid version of the V8-engined F8 Tributo.

Ferrari V6 hybrid supercar: spy shots, specs and release Is it the same engine as an F1 car?

No. Unlike the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar, which uses one of Lewis Hamilton’s championship winning F1 engines, the Ferrari’s V6 hybrid has been specifically designed as a road car motor.

Details about the hybrid V6 are scarce, but Car magazine says it will probably be turbocharged, similar to the engine layout of a modern F1 car.

The hybrid system is expected to minimise turbo lag, the term given to the delay between a driver pressing the accelerator and the engine responding in turbocharged cars, the magazine says.

Should you buy a £50k Ferrari?

Should you buy a £50k Ferrari? It may have been a Mercedes-Benz for Janis Joplin, and Porsches for all her friends, but if there’s one car that is lusted after more than any other, it’s a Ferrari. But buying a Ferrari for peanuts, just so you can say you own a Ferrari, is no longer possible. Or rather it is, but you shouldn’t. Today you’ll need at least £50,000 to get into one you can enjoy, but the choice at this price is tantalisingly appealing. If it’s a V8 you’re after, you’ve got the 308 GT4 or Mondial, or the more modern 348. And within reach is a proper 2+2 V12 grand tourer, too – the 456 GT. So, you’ve read the road tests, reviews and buying guides.

Ferrari 's much anticipated hybrid V 6 will debut in May, according to a rumor from Car , and it'll possibly be available first in a variant of the 488's chassis with the 486 moniker. Spy shots (above) suggest the 486 looks a whole lot like the existing 488 but with revisions to the rear bodywork.

Still, these spy shots are unique. If it is a hybrid 488, it would be just the second hybrid model the company has ever produced – behind the LaFerrari, of course – and the first directed with a more mass market appeal, at least relative to Ferrari . With the introduction of hybrid tech, the company hopes to

Not only will the hybrid system help boost performance, the technology should also help Ferrari meet tough CO2 emission targets that are in force across Europe.

Speaking to Top Gear at the Geneva Motor Show last week, Ferrari technical chief Michael Leiters said the supercar maker is “being forced to look at emissions” and must consider reducing the size of its engine to meet the strict targets.

YouTuber spots rare street-parked Ferrari.
What was a Ferrari F40 GTE doing parked on the street in Greenwich, Connecticut on a quiet Sunday evening? Carspotting is one of the most fun aspects of our hobby. Whether you're running errands, gazing out your office window, or just going for a nice stroll, you can participate, and best of all, it's free. Carspotting isn't a competition, and there are no points awarded for particularly good spots. If there was, though, this guy would be in the running to be the all-time champion of carspotting.
