Ferrari teases mystery model; hybrid supercar ready for debut?
Rumors point to a mid-mounted turbo V8 paired with an electric motor.
Ferrari has posted a teaser video for a mystery model scheduled to be revealed on Thursday.
The short segment does not show much. It may provide an audible hint, however, as an unusual high-pitched tone accompanies the traditional engine exhaust growl as the driver moves through the gears.
The extra noise meshes with recent rumors pointing to a new mid-engine hybrid supercar that pairs a turbocharged V8 with one or more electric motors. Together, the power sources are expected to top the 488 Pista's 710-horsepower benchmark.
"Make room for new thrills," Ferrari says.
The new model is expected to be a standard production car when it arrives next year.
