Engine and performance[edit]

The Ferrari F1 GG50 has special modifications inspired by Formula 1 (F1), to improve performance. It uses a 65 degree V12 naturally aspirated petrol engine. The engine develops peak power of 540 horsepower (400 kW), which is 94 horsepower (70 kW) per litre. The compression ratio is 11.2:1. The GG50 uses a sequential mode automatic transmission.[1]

Design[edit]

The GG50 is a 2+2 coupé "supercar". Most of the elements of the interior design are from the similar Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, as well as part of the exterior design. The exterior body is around four inches shorter and has a differently shaped nose.[2] Some cues, such as the steering wheel, derive from Ferrari's F1 vehicles of the past. Unique parts of the GG50 are its dashboard and the fact that the GG50 uses the Pioneer AVIC–X1R satellite navigation system.[3]
