2014 Engine testing ... or not ....

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Rumors say that Ferrari is testing their new V6 turbo engine at Fiorano using a modified LaFerrari test mule.

Sounds more like a v12 to me.

I don't know if it's the V6 or not but some remarks:

-The car has an intake scoop that is not present on the laferrari
-You can hear a whine sound that to me sounds like a turbo while laferrari V12 is NA
-Yesterday ferrari tweeted an image with a truck unloading something and they titled it "what you could it be? 2014 F1 car shakedown??" which is it was obvioulsy not but could be just that testing mule with a 2014 engine.


Just my two cents

If it is the Ferrari V6T then I would have to say it sounds much better than the Renault or Mercedes engine sound preview.

And it would also mean they are ahead of the opposition, rather than behind and in trouble, as has so often been suggested.

Running in a car such as that would allow them to run things like the MGUK and MGUH without needing the final spec ES.

I think all engines tend to sound better in open air than on the dyno.

I'd agree that this was a turbo'd engine - sounded nice.

I think this video is the best one to compare it to.

They sound alike but not interely the same. But that could just be changes in the exhaust.

The whistle noises can be the KERS charging during braking.

I just think its the LaFerrari.

To me they do not sound the same (but of course it can because of position of observer and atmospheric conditions) but the whistle noise in not present here and in the supposed V6 video it can be heard the whole time not only on braking.

The tweet for ferrari was in fact about a filming of F138 trailing a sledge. But the fact that ferrari hinted at 2014 may be some subtle com..

Too me they sound the same, the only difference being the chatterish noise the car makes under breaking in the first video (which could be kers as you say). When it's flat it sounds like a typical v12 to me. Maybe someone could do some acoustical analysis.

The sound of the car at position 0:13 and 0:58 in the video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=od3H6Jxisfk ) sounds strange.

Definitely another sound, compared to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjghiUWNdCc
