    I’m going to sit out this first generation hybrid.
    This car will have 1000 hp, great but it’s just the Pista engine with an electric engine.

    Now, an electric turbo ICE, two electric engines for the front wheels and carbon tub...
    That’s something to look forward to.

    Regarding this car being a bargain for 600k without options, that’s just silly.
    Very soon all electric super cars will have at least 1500 hp or whatever making all hybrids slower.
    And since you don’t have the emotion/sound of an NA might as well be bonkers fast!

    I like your thinking with F10 but the clue was 'an actual car' so I still hold out hope for LeMans (250 L/M) that was a fast 1960's track car but it could be street driven to. This would play to the Track & Road theme promoted for BB.
    F40 is more in the Icona territory with a chance to do a serious special edition vs a 'regular production' model name.

    Wasn’t there talk of BB being at the Monaco GP for private viewing? Did that happen or just a rumor? Looking forward to the unveiling.. not too long now.

    F40 Icona could be based on the BB but in three or four years from now ,
    Before this , the testarossa icona V12 is a more logical agenda ( F167 ?) .

    I remember someone saying that the actual public debut (excluding online reveal) will happen at Le Mans.

    That's another good way to read it. What if it's a reference to the SF90? Before the F8 Tributo was unveiled, I was thinking about "Ferrari Novanta" (italian for Ninety), but I wouldn't really bet on it..

    Novanta relates to the 90th anniversario of the Scuderia Ferrari so in that case there should definitely be a link to the Racing department within the name. Something like F90 Scuderia maybe?

    I don't believe the 1000kg target of this project. Project "mille cavalli" (1000cv) - yes. Not sure about the car name though.

    the mail is from a ferrari dealer, but it states that the spscs are unoffecial, so they should be taken with a gram of salt... but still the weight-thing sounds very specific

    So 1000 Hp and About 1000 Kg for less than 600,000€ and its a Ferrari.

    I don't mean to disrespect you, but it seems impossible to me.

    Project Mille Chilli was to produce a 1,000kg car which became LaF. But with addition of KERS/battery weight went up about 250kg from there. Would be very very surprised to see BB at 1,000kg - near impossible if it’s hybrid.
