GENEVA: Ferrari plans to unveil its first hybrid supercar at the end of May, Chief Executive Officer Louis Camilleri told reporters in Geneva, and it’s likely to be more powerful than a previous model.

The combustion engine — possibly a V8 — will be smaller, stronger and cleaner than a previous model, according to people familiar with the matter. The electric motor will provide the car with added power, the people said, asking not to be named because these details aren’t public.

One question still unanswered: Will it have the same Ferrari rumble?
