Volkogas future is unclear but we are expecting some interesting changes, with the biggest being the introduction of a hybrid drivetrain.
According to Movistar Motor Sport’s Fernando Alonso, it will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged V6, which will power the front wheels and the rear wheel.
“The engine will be the same as the one in the Veyron, but we have changed the engine from a 2-liter to a 3-liter,” Alonso told Motorsport.com.
However, the biggest news is that the new car will be powered by a turbocharged version of the existing engine.
This means that the turbocharged engine will drive the whole of the Volkanas powertrain, meaning it can be mounted under the front axle.
If the engine can be installed underneath the front wheel, it could make the Volks more agile and more powerful than the Volken.
It is unclear when the hybrid version of this engine will arrive.
The engine has been seen on several of the new Volkoda prototypes and there are plans for it to be used on the Veyron as well.
While the Vayron will use a hybrid engine, Alonso is hopeful the Volvos hybrid will be used for the future.
“The hybrid version has been on the prototype for the last year, but I think this will be our last car with the hybrid,” Alonso said.
What about the F1 car?
The F1 car is still in the works and has not been revealed to the public yet.
As the team is looking to improve the car, it is expected that it will be replaced with a more modern version of the Volkoda.
Alonso told Motorsport “we will get a new car in 2018, a new engine.
We don’t know when we will get the new engine, we don’t have a timetable yet.
We are going to have a completely new car.”
MOVistar is working on the next generation of Volks but it is unclear what the team plans to do with its cars and the team’s F1 drivers.
Ferrari has already announced a new F1 team in 2018 and is likely to use the Volvo Veyrons for that team.
With Renault struggling financially, Moyes is said to be considering making an F1 comeback.
