New Hybrid Ferrari F171 “Dino” Coming In 2022

The V6 engine returns to Ferrari for the first time since the Dino 246 GTS


  • Will feature a hybrid-V6 powertrain.

  • It will be Ferrari’s second hybrid model.


Ferrari is working on the next phase of its evolution. While electrification seemed like a far-off pipe dream less than two years ago, the Italian supercar company is already working on its second hybrid-electric vehicle. This new “entry-level” Ferrari is expected to launch as early as next year and is currently code-named F171.

It’s impossible not to bring up the Dino in this case. This new Ferrari will reintroduce the V6 engine to the brand. The last time one was fitted to a Rarri, the car was introduced at the 1972 Geneva Motor show as the Dino 246 GTS.

The hybrid F171 will feature a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 that, according to Autocar, will be coupled to an electric motor. Unlike the incredible SF90 PHEV, the F171 will not receive a front-mounted electric motor, thus it will be RWD only.

This same powertrain setup is rumoured to be fitted to the upcoming Purosangue SUV from Ferrari. Both of these new hybrid models will dramatically increase the car company’s line-up and, dare we say it, make it more accessible.

As Ferrari works on these hybrids, they’ve already announced a fully electric model for 2025.
