Ferrari Blends Fashion With Graceful Styling
Fashion at the 2008 Paris Autoshow (2008 Paris Mondial De L'Automobile - October 4-19, 2008) was a graceful representation of style that blended very well with automotive design, technology and upcoming innovation. At Ferrari, the style of the models was 'evening smart' (as seen in the photo). It was hard to find any model without a professional smile at the automobile manufacturer's stands.
Automotive journalists are waiting for the first word of an electric supercar from Ferrari. It is probably a closely guarded secret, but you can be sure that Ferrari won't give the California Tesla Roadster crowd too much time to be leaders of the pack, and an electric Enzo is just around the corner. Ferrari designers have an eye for styling and this beauty was evident in the lines of the red 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti that was elegantly complemented by the beautiful model standing next to it.
Ferrari will already be working on their hybrid powertrain for the upcoming 2009 Formula 1 season. In 2009, the FIA rules will change to allow kinetic energy recovery systems (KERS) during deceleration events to a maximum of 60 kW of stored energy per lap. Expect to see some of the F1 hybrid technology working its way into the production Ferrari cars of the future.
