Ferrari’s new F50 sports car, the 599, is set to become the sport’s first ever sports car to be offered in a fully electric model.
The car, which will be available in two models in the UK this year, is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine and uses a carbon fiber body and body-on-frame body panels.
It is also fitted with a new front and rear wing.
The new sports car is powered and driven by a 1.7-litres petrol engine with an electric motor and a gearbox.
The electric motor also has variable valve timing, which is the same as the existing 3.6-liters petrol engine.
The 599 sports car was unveiled on Tuesday at the Frankfurt Motor Show, where the company confirmed that it will go on sale in the US in late 2018.
The first of the new sports cars will be built by Daimler in Frankfurt, the company said.
It is the first of two models that will be offered, alongside the new Daimlers A6.
The new A6 sports car will go into production in 2018.
While the first F50 model is the most exciting, there is more to come in terms of performance.
The A6 will be the first sports car with all-wheel drive, as well as a fully electrified engine, with the other two models including the Daimels A6 Plus (the first to be powered by an all-electric motor), the Dams A6 (electric model) and the Dots A6 Sport (electric and all-electro).
The new A5 sports car launched last year, with all the power from an electric drivetrain, the same petrol engine as the D-Class.
The all-new A6 is due to debut later this year.
The D-class, which has become increasingly popular in the past five years, has been powered by the 3.8-litters petrol engine, which was developed by Renault, as it has been available for many years.
The D-classes A5 and A5 Plus, however, are expected to follow the same engine.
