Ferrari’s next flagship will have *gasp* a hybrid system mated to its usual V12/7-speed dual clutch gearbox.

The system, known as HY-KERS, will have two electric motors in place. A front mounted motor controls the ancillary systems like power steering, air-conditioning and other power-sapping devices. A rear-mounted motor helps add some juice to the already potent gasoline powered V12.

Regenerative braking will help power the lithium-ion battery pack mounted low in the car, behind the center line. A dual clutch gearbox will help put the power to the ground, and the electric motor should provide instant torque and sub-3 second sprints to 60 mph. The combined 800 horsepower from the 7.0L V12 as well as the electric motor should add up to over 900 horsepower – and an absurd price tag.
