Fer­rari’s plug-in hy­brid V8 gets ready to roar

Auto Express - - News -

FER­RARI has fi­nally been spot­ted test­ing its up­com­ing plug-in hy­brid V8 pow­er­train. Boss Ser­gio Mar­chionne con­firmed the set-up at the Geneva Mo­tor Show last month, and it’s likely to power the firm’s forth­com­ing SUV – pre­viewed in our ex­clu­sive image (be­low).

Mar­chionne said the hy­brid would ar­rive in 2019, and an on­line video has now of­fered a brief glimpse of a 488 Gtb-based mule driv­ing solely on elec­tric power. It’ll be the brand’s first se­ries pro­duc­tion hy­brid af­ter the lim­ited-run La­fer­rari hy­per­car. Go to www.au­to­ex­press.co.uk to see the new car test­ing.
