While Audi is thinking about adding a couple of cylinders, the fellows at AutoWeek get confirmation that Ferrari is considering dropping a V8 in the next generation Enzo. The new version will be using technology developed in the FXX (pictured in Evoluzione form) and there's some question as to whether it's better to lose some weight with a turbocharged V8 or stick with a heavier, more powerful V12.
It's one of those questions that makes us a little more envious of Ferrari engineers than usual. Since the new Enzo isn't due until 2012, the company has plenty of time to develop both a new V8 and new V12 and decide later what engine goes where. If it ends up coming with eight cylinders it'll be the first V8 powered stallion supercar since the F40 graced the walls of our childhood bedroom. [AutoWeek]
