So, you heard through the grapevine (the waiting room at the plastic surgeons office) that one of your millionair friends was talking crap about you and your polluting fleet of Ferraris, particularly your newest addition, the Ferrari FF. Here's an idea to make that eco loving hypocrit eat his/her own words.

For less than €1500 Norwegian firm Customized.no offers a bio-ethanol E85 conversion that can transform your 651 bhp (485 kW / 660 PS) V12 powered all-wheel drive Ferrari super car into a bona fide 875 bhp (652 kW / 887 PS) hyper car with the emissions of a diesel powered Volkswagen Polo bluemotion.

This isn't the first time we've seen a hypercar pushing major horsepower with E85. In addition to a few other models from the Swedish supercar maker, the Koenigsegg Agera R runs on E85 producing 1115 PS (1099 bhp / 820 kW). Fill it up with 95-octane fuel and the engine's potential is limited to 940 PS (927 bhp / 691 kW).

But how about emissions? The Ferrari FF is rated at 360g/km while the E85 conversion puts it below 100g/km according to TheCarFinders. Put it all together and the FF's 0-100 km/h sprint time improves by 20 percent from an already substantial 3.7 seconds down to below 3 seconds.

For the vehicle shown here, it is reported that the conversion was installed by a Ferrari dealer. Whether that means they will honor the warranty or not is unknown, but highly doubtful they will.

But then, is a Ferrari supposed to be eco-friendly ?

Yeah for 1500EU it can't be more than an ECU tune, for sure it's not piping/pump/injectors like on other conversions.

I'm sure that the ability to run on flex fuel was designed into the engine from the get go. The conversion is likely to be a simple ECU mapping, and change of some fittings.
