Ferrari Developing Secret New Enzo Successor – And It’s A Hybrid

Ferrari have been experimenting with KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) hybrids in both their Formula 1 cars and road going sports cars since at least 2009, now according to Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Ferrari are developing an all new hybrid designed to replace the venerable Enzo hypercar.

Rather than a typical battery based hybrid Ferrari will be sticking with the flywheel based KERS hybrid system that they debuted in the much touted 599 Hy-KERS at this year’s Geneva Motorshow. The flywheel essentially stores energy usually lost under braking in a transmission mounted flywheel and then uses that stored kinetic energy to add a boost of power when the driver hits a little red button in the cockpit. Formula 1 used a KERS hybrid system in the 2009 season and will resume the use of KERS in the upcoming 2011 season.

The new model is due out in 2012 and will also undergo a feat of weight loss, inline with Ferrari’s desire to boost fuel economy without sacrificing performance.

As mentioned earlier, it’s usually a good idea to keep your porcelain collectibles or china stored behind glass, this way you won’t
have to dust them as often and handling them less will reduce
the potential of chips or breaks on the actual figurine.
And the family has nice dishes, safe and stylish dishes to eat
off. Begin by setting your tables with pink tablecloths and black disposable dinnerware.

You need to combine practicality and personal
touch in the gifts. You wouldn’t want anything within your bag poking you in the
back, why would you think your dog would. Tent camping is great for families with younger children because it’s fun, inexpensive,
and the right combination of being outdoors without being too far from those
modern conveniences.

The Braun Multiquick Hand Blender helps a cook in the kitchen with everyday preparation of healthy, and several not so healthy, foods without taking up time and effort and space
as being a big mixer or blender does. Recently I have been investigating the Cuisinart CSB-76 Hand Blender or Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender since its full name is.
Another think I really like to utilize it for is to make homemade mayonnaise with.
