Does Ferrari have any Environmentally Friendly Cars?

In a world with growing environmental concern, any good car manufacturer would want to give an environment friendly masterpiece, and Ferrari also has done their part in that regard. On their 60th anniversary, Ferrari unveiled the Ferrari FXX Millechili presentation vehicle. As the name “Millechili” suggests the car does weigh only 1,000 kilograms, which is very less for a symbol of power. This is the first car of its kind to show the world that Ferrari is ready to enter the future with a whole new concept of saving the environment.

The Ferrari FXX Millechili shockingly has a cardboard and plastic exoskeleton with a carbonfibre frame construction with aerodynamic enhancements. Hence, even though the Ferrari FXX Millechili is light, it can also maintain its reputation as a mean machine of speed. It not only cares about the environment but also has an adjustable steering wheel and a pedal box for the comfort of the driver. The present version of the Ferrari FXX Millechili has got wheels made only of paper, so as of now it hasn’t landed on the roads yet, but that day isn’t far away — a day for a real environmentally friendly car by Ferrari…

With its present structure, it can very easily hold a V8 or V12 engine and looks exactly like a smaller version of the Enzo. According to the brains of the Ferrari people, they plan to use a hybrid car system by simply adding electrical assistance to the petrol engine and not just propelling the future of the Ferrari using electric power alone. The idea of an eco-friendly Ferrari is to be used in the future F1 cars. So it can very well be said that the Ferrari is going green, not with envy, but with the hopes of making this world a better place to live for our children.
