The hybrid powerplant of the next Ferrari hypercar, and Ferrari Enzo replacement, has been revealed in an image published in the latest issue of the Official Ferrari Magazine.

The image of the Ferrari F70 engine bay shows the upcoming Italian road-weapon’s V12 engine and the electric motor it’s coupled to – a combination likely to see a total power output above 680kW thanks to the company’s use of its HY-KERS system shown earlier this year at the 2012 Beijing motor show.

The extensive use of carbonfibre sets a backdrop for the high-voltage orange cabling used to connect the electric motor to the car’s lithium-ion battery pack.

The official Ferrari photo also shows the use of twin-angled radiators mounted ahead of the rear wheels and four exhaust pipes at the rear.

The image follows last month’s 2012 Paris motor show unveiling of the new supercar’s Formula One-inspired carbonfibre chassis, which is said to make the all-new model 20 per cent lighter, 22 per cent stiffer and 27 per cent more rigid than its 1365kg 485kW predecessor named after the car maker’s founder.
