Ferrari Looking To Turbocharge V6 To Save On Fuel

Written by tonks on July 4, 2008

Ferrari DinoMany enthusiasts are angered by the idea of Ferrari using a V6 that had been turbocharged. Their reasoning for considering this is the recent restrictions that has been issued for emissions and consumption. Any thoughts of shaving off the weight is shot when the engine has been turbocharged.

Additionally, anyone who’s ever given the boot to a turbocharged engine can attest that forced induction’s ability to make small engines flex big muscles, it can also lead to big-league fuel swilling, poking holes in the idea that a turbo V6 might save a lot of fuel over the direct-injected V8. Like any automaker, Ferrari is certainly looking at all sorts of “what if” ideas that will never reach production to find the right solution for the myriad technical challenges facing any automaker, let alone an exotic manufacturer.
