What is it? A hybrid based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. How serious is Ferrari about hybrid power? Ferrari calls the HY-KERS Hybrid a �vettura laboratorio,� or research vehicle, so don�t expect to see this particular car make it to production.

 It is more of a test bed for future technology that will be applied across the Ferrari product line. �This sort of technological challenge has been in the Ferrari blood since forever,� Luca di Montezemolo, Ferrari�s chairman, said in introducing the first �green� Ferrari. �We want to build a hybrid with huge power and huge performance. Within three to four years, every Ferrari in our lineup will offer some version of hybrid operation.�

It would appear that hybrid technology is the new black at the Geneva Motor Show this year, with even Ferrari getting in on the act with their HY-KERS model. Based on the 599 GTB Fiorano the �vettura laboratorio� (experimental vehicle) has an electric engine coupled the a 7-speed F1 style transmission providing over 100hp to complement the car�s familiar V12.
