    Next generation Ferrari 400-series


    . Next generation Ferrari 400-series
    . Aluminium honeycomb chassis
    . 6-litre engine from Enzo
    . 500 bhp
    . Paris 2004

    Continuing the 4-seater, front?engine theme of the original car, which made its debut way back in 1992, and the new model is expected to be larger and roomier. Expected to be named the 460GT or possibly 460 Bologna, it will use the 6.0 litre V12 engine first seen in the Enzo, but will have available around 500 HP and a torque of about 600 Nm.

    Raising the power stakes has been necessary in light of the advances made with the rivalling Bentley Continental R.

    The 4?seater will be available with two transmissions, a manual 6-speed box or the new 'F1-style' version with shift-paddles behind the wheel. It will be 4.85 metres long and about 2 metres wide.

    Ha ha _ if they name it the Bologna ...

    Here in the US , bologna ( more commonly referred to as "balony" ) is a cheap tasteless sandwich meat that has connotations as elementary school lunch food . " Balony" is a common retort in conversation similar to bulls**t ! Ferrari owners in the US would have a hard time living with that moniker . These are rolling phallic symbols to some anyway , so might as well go all the way and name it the " Biggest Weiner " , since that's what balony looks like before slicing !

    Re: Ha ha _ if they name it the Bologna ...

    actually i didn't know this... but "ferrari bologna" sounds weird anyway. can't really imagine driving the "new bologna"

    it reminded me of sphaghetti bolognese... but food seems to be popular in car names recently ("cayenne"), so in a couple of years the ferrari model range will maybe sound like an italian restaurant's menu...

    ferrari napoli
    ferrari principessa
    ferrari carbonara
    ferrari alla massimo
    ...and not to forget the top model, the enzo successsor: the F70 arrabiata!!

    Puttanesca !
