Ferrari 599 Hybrid - crazy or insane?
You have probably seen the news about the Ferrari 599 HYKERS (HYbrid Kinetic Energy Recovery System) doing the media circuit. It may not yet be confirmed for production, but it is on the front burner for Ferrari. If they indeed role the hybrid out on the 599, it is a matter of time before the 458/California sees it applied.
The 599 HYKERS is faster, has a lower center of gravity, better fuel mileage and not much heavier, surprisingly. Porsche is also hot on the hybrid path, including applications for racing.
A hybrid Ferrari... Is this CRAZY (cool) or INSANE (stupid)? I'm not sure how I feel about this.
