Ferrari Millechili

The Ferrari Millechili (Italian for one thousand (mille) kilograms (chili)) is the name of a concept car shown at a technical symposium at Ferrari's headquarters in Maranello in 2007.[1] It is also the name of a project by Ferrari to develop and manufacture a lightweight sports car. The development of the Millechili is being done in collaboration with University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, faculty of Mechanical Engineering. MilleChili Lab is a cross-project in which students are working on light-weight car design.[1][2][3]

The Millechilli is 152.8 in (3.88 m) long, with a 104.3 in (2.65 m) wheelbase, resulting in an appearance of a scaled-down Enzo. The concept has an aluminum structure, a titanium transmission case, and several aerodynamic aids that reduce drag.[4]

A production version of the Millechili concept car was speculated to enter production in 2010.[5]

Millechili Lab is a part of the Millechili Project, created in February 2009 by the University of Modena's Engineering Faculty in collaboration with Ferrari.[6][7]

The MilleChili Lab is to study and design a light-weight automotive chassis for high-performance cars, thanks to the work of under-graduate and post-graduate students, all trained inside the Lab.[8] There are only a few constrictions for the new designed lay-out: the possibility of industrialization and the respect of every performance target given by Ferrari. The future chassis, created for a mid-engine design car, should be designed in 3 years.

The Lab, thanks to Ferrari research funds, has four UNIX workstations supporting multiple users and also used as a 32CPUS' Cluster, and a brand-new cluster with 24CPUS. The Lab has also two Windows workstations. Every interactive computer is equipped with various pieces of software, such as CAE (CAD, FEA, Material Selector, etc...) programs, all the same used by Ferrari, to simplify information exchange.

Enzo Ferrari (automobile)

The Enzo Ferrari (also unofficially referred to as the Ferrari Enzo) (Type F140) is a 12 cylinder mid-engine sports car named after the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari. It was developed in 2002 using Formula One technology, such as a carbon-fibre body, F1-style electrohydraulic shift transmission, and carbon fibre-reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes. Also used are technologies not allowed in F1 such as active aerodynamics and traction control. The Enzo Ferrari generates substantial amounts of downforce which is achieved by the front underbody flaps, the small adjustable rear spoiler and the rear diffuser working in conjunction, 3,363 N (756 lbf) is generated at 200 km/h (124 mph) 7,602 N (1,709 lbf) is attained at 299 km/h (186 mph) before decreasing to 5,738 N (1,290 lbf) at top speed.The Enzo's F140 B V12 engine was the first of a new generation for Ferrari. It is based on the design of the V8 engine found in the Maserati Quattroporte, using the same basic design and 104 mm (4.1 in) bore spacing. This design replaced the former architectures seen in V12 and V8 engines used in most other contemporary Ferrari models. The 2005 F430 is the second Ferrari automobile to get a version of this new powerplant.
