    No, it's because I like pretty cars. And did you already drive the BB to make such a statement about its soul (or lack thereof)?

    OK, did not realise there was a "noise" limit too. This could be a major issue. Again while I really enjoyed being a passenger in the 918 I am really not sure as an all round package I would want one. Hence why noise aside BB would need to be driven and tested to really see if its worth crazy money. But yes noise limit is not cool

    I’ve never heard anything about a regulatory noise limit of 64db. For which region should this apply?

    By the way, Ferrari already built a hybrid car that can be started and also driven in electric mode: it's called LaFerrari. Here's Manuma (a.k.a. Powerslidelover) driving it in such mode with the V12 kicking in at the end:

    Someone with more knowledge than me could kindly explain how the ICE takes over.

    I don t ...I respect your position even if mine is different. NA have a soul, not hybrid turbocharged to come. Don t forget its not a KERS like the LF

    The LF can drive in electric mode only up to 5 km/h and for a limited distance. It was meant for getting in and out of your garage, without waking up the wife. :D

    I don't know much about hybrid systems, honestly. I only remember @Doug23 talking about different solutions (2 MGUs for the front axle, gearbox KERS etc.), plus the patented turbine/compressor system discussed a few pages ago.

    Other than that, I respect your opinion too but, for me, their souls will die when there won't be any kind of interaction between man and machine.

    V6?

    Also EU noise limits are not total noise - it’s a drive-by test at specific RPM etc. That’s largely why cars have exhaust flaps as I understand.

    Unveiled to everyone at Le Mans? Not a bad guess.

    Gents, do you think the F8 is going to be completely forgotten once BB is unveiled ? especially since the two are going to share a similar design language, at least for the front (I suppose)

    Won't the F8 be seen as the poor man's BB, since the BB is not going to be an halo car and not limited (Like I've understood) ?
