Ferrari Enzo Hybrid Confirmed
Montezemolo confirms new Ferrari Enzo hybrid by year's end
Business has been good for Ferrari. Thanks in no small part to expanding its activities in developing markets, the racing team turned automaker raked in 556 million euros in revenues to generate 42.1 million euros in profit in the first quarter of this year alone – an increase of 13.2 and 17.2 percent, respectively. Those figures are driven by increased sales that amounted to 1,733 units produced and delivered in the first quarter out of an exciting model range that includes the 458 Italia and Spider, the recently revised California, the innovative FF and the brand-new F12 Berlinetta. But the House that Enzo built is not about to stop there.
Buried deep within the company's financial report (which you can delve into after below the fold should you be so inclined) comes confirmation direct from the company's affable chairman (and possible next Italian prime minister) Luca di Montezemolo: "At the end of the year, we'll also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first ever hybrid car."
So there we have it, straight from the proverbial lion's mouth and in no uncertain terms. Before we flip the calendar to 2013, we'll have the latest in the long line of earth-shattering supercars that started with the 288 GTO, continued with the legendary F40, through the open-top F50 and on to the radical Enzo. And yes, it will be a hybrid, coupling an electric motor to a revised version of the V12 in the new F12 Berlinetta, as Ferrari revealed at the Beijing Motor Show.

Either Autoblog is speculating or didn't quote Monte properly. ""At the end of the year, we'll also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first ever hybrid car."
The way he worded it, doesn't mean the Enzo successor WILL be hybrid. For all we know these two things Enzo successor and hybrid model could be mutually exclusive. It would be cool to see Ferrari come out swinging with a 918 fighter but they could just as easily take an existing model and add a hybrid drivetrain to it.
Or maybe I'm reading too much into it ???I don't know which is better getting paid or getting laid, all I know is while I'm doing one the others getting away.

I posted this a little while ago, but the F70 Engine will be Hybrid. Not only is it the successor to the Enzo, but it will be their first ever hybrid car.
