Ferrari planning to use turbocharging in future engines

According to the latest reports from Autocar, it appears that Ferrari is currently planning to improve its engines by adding turbochargers. Of course, there are some problems according to engine developer Jean-Jacques His and the biggest one would ne the turbo lag.

Jean-Jacques His said that a delay of any sort before the power arrives is unacceptable for a Ferrari engine.

Previously, the Italian manufacturer tried to install turbochargers to an F430’s V8 engine but this did not delivered the expected results.

“Turbocharging will come eventually, but we need to solve the issue of turbo lag,” he said.
