Dash board looks a bit busy, also has a bit of Vantage/DB11 to it. Pretty car though.

I was expecting something ground breaking. Out of date already. No battery on board? EV range? Surely Ferrari now have the tech to deliver a 2+2 with 100+ miles EV capability but with a V8 for out of town driving? Shame. Missed opportunity especially when you consider fossil fuelled cars are being phased out.

Maybe Ferrari can start to release some truly innovative products rather than relying on their past. I don't think I've been as disappointed in any Ferrari release. I'll await their fossil fuelled SUV in anticipation.

I think i'm looking forward to the Tesla Model Y more than this :-) Perhaps McLaren have something more interesting for release soon?

Absolutely stunning thing, had a play though and i hope they offer a black/carbon front grille, looks much better.

Does anyone offer a Hybrid with 100+ Miles of EV range combined with a big naturally aspirated engine ?!

Not yet unfortunately. If Tesla can launch a Roadster that does over 250mph and 0-60 in 1.9 seconds - the technology must be there.

Massive opportunity for the likes of Ferrari, McLaren etc

'Launch'

rofl

I'm a huge Tesla fan, but come on, that Roadster is still vapourware. Not a single one of the claimed stats has been proven yet.

I don’t think the technology is there....a Tesla’s floor pan is basically a massive battery. There isn’t room in a car for a battery to deliver the kind of performance you are talking about and also a V* internal combustion engine, petrol tank and drivetrain etc. On something like a Cayenne Hybrid the battery weighs 300 kg and that provides 20 miles of range. So you’re probably talking at least double that in weight of battery to deliver the range you are talking about (in a lighter car)and probably more. Imagine what the handling would be like on a V8 Ferrari with 600 kg under the boot.

A mate works for JLR on their electric drivetrain stuff....he said the next gen of batteries are going to be cheaper through manufacturing scale rather than delivering massive amounts more power/range. It’s going to be a while before electric cars deliver the kind of range and performance people want....

I heard a story last night that it could be two years til UK customer cars due to lack of production capacity

Not sure how accurate that is but I can certainly see not before early 2021 as they need to focus for the next year on producing the F8
