As quoted of Car and Drive, the appearance of this super racing car is different compared with another Le Mans racing cars of Ferrari, because the Ferrari 499P is very specifally designed, and the 499P code is also pointed to different chassis name from previous types such the LMDh. Furthermore, this hypercar itself is classified as an LMH (Le Mans Hypercar) is powered by a 2,992 cc twin-turbo V6 engine capable of spitting out power of up to 670 hp coupled with an all-wheel drive (AWD) system, unlike the LMDh class which only drives its two rear wheels (RWD).

Furthermore, the Prancing Horse logoed manufacturer claims that those new engine has the same architecture as that used in the Ferrari 296GT3, but there are new touches to make it "light" when devouring the racing track for hours. Meanwhile, the Ferrari's differential technology divides the torque from the electric motor to the two front wheels. The hybrid technology still relies on the Energy Recovery System (ERS) which is able to recharge the battery during acceleration and deceleration.

For the car's agility as well as to testing the car's toughness on a fairly monotonous racing track, the company simply trusts the X-trac seven-speed sequential transmission system which is expected to quickly send power to the two rear wheels, as its engine and electric motor would be worked simultaneously to produce a good driving style and maximum traction in car's maneuvering.
Currently, the 24-Hours of Le Mans, world's endurance competition is still the main focus of the Italian automotive company. The prancing horse logoed manufacturer also believes it can make its racing debut because the car has passed trials in recent months at the Imola Circuit, Italy. This seems to make the Italian manufacturer more confident that it will return to the top of sports car racing in the endurance racing championship next year. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FERRARI | ]
