By on

Ferrari have today revealed their their new 2013 car, which is to be launched this Friday at the team's headquarters in Maranello, Italy, will be called F138. The team has opted to name the car as a reflection of this being the last year in F1 with a V8 engine.

"The name of the fifty ninth car built by Ferrari to compete at the highest level of motor sport derives from a combination of the current year and the number of cylinders, partly to mark the fact that this will be the last year that the V8 engine configuration will be used in Formula 1, bringing to an end what will be an eight year career."

With its fifty eight previous cars, the Scuderia is the only team to have taken part in every year of the championship.
