FERRARI TO TURBO CHARGE NEXT GENERATION OF CARS

 

Ferrari, Turbo-chargedAccording to a report by Motor Trend, Ferrari will be switching from naturally aspirated motors to turbocharged powerplants in all next generation vehicles. By switching to a turbocharged powerplant, Ferrari will improve power and create better fuel economy. This could in part be a response to tighter emissions requirements expected to take place in 2016.
This will not be the first time that Ferrari has offered turbocharged vehicles; both the Ferrari F40 and the 288 GTO were turbocharged. The F40 was introduced in 1987 as a mid-engine 2.9 liter 478 horsepower twin-turbo. The F40 was a huge success that earned the respect of Ferrari purists even though the F40 lacked the sound that roars from a naturally aspirated engine. The 288 GTO is a less known vehicle with a much smaller production run that has steadily increased in value over time.
One other important factor that may contribute to this decision is the move to V-6 engines in Formula One at the end of the 2013 season. This rule change motivated Honda to return to Formula One as a supplier of engines for McLaren.
