    Ferrari 599 Hybrid

    As one of the more hotly-anticipated vehicles of the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari 599 Hybrid is on the list of cars people just can't wait to see ASAP. Despite Ferrari's efforts to keep its show car away from prying eyes before its official debut, intrepid auto buffs have managed to snag the first series of images of the hybridized supercar, presumably from the actual Geneva show stand.

    A green Ferrari? Madness.
    It's using the KERS system though...but I wonder how it adds to the weight.

    Oh, I didn't know that Ferrari was a fuel-efficient citycar manufacturer now.

    Buying a car and not driving it is like buying a meal and not eating it.

    The green's not the greatest, but the two-tone scheme looks pretty good on the 599.

    I get it.

    It's environmentally friendly because it's green, right?

    Talk about a metaphor to the face.

    Oh the tech? great, now it'll achieve 20l/100km instead of 30l/100km.

    And then there are the batteries. Which don't use toxic materials. At all.

    "He(Ferrari's CEO) went on to reveal that the 599 Hybrid set for next monthís 2010 Geneva Motor Show isnít destined for production, although the limited edition 599 GTO is. Speaking with GoAuto, Felisa said early hybrid prototypes are already showing improvements in fuel economy of more than 25% but stressed that the technology is just not ready for production and likely wonít be for another five years.

    No Ferrari should EVER be painted that colour.

    Carabo green... watch for Lambo lawyers circling. Lithium battery packs and KERS is a good thing, though: Ferrari got SOMEthing out of that disastrous F1 season. And their clientel can finally be smug without resorting to some Japanese product. The anti-Prius, without guilt.
    Never own more cars than you can keep charged batteries in...

    Re: Ferrari 599 Hybrid

    As silly as I think this is, it's brilliant for Ferrari. Celebrities will see the word hybrid associated with the 599 and buy it like hotcakes. Flashy and 'eco-friendly'. Win-win.
