Ferrari are to unveil their new two-seat super car at the Geneva Motor Show next March. It’ll replace their 599 GTB Fiorano, and be more powerful and lighter, becoming one of the company’s fastest-ever models. Currently dubbed as the F152, it’s been sighted near Ferrari’s base in Maranello, Italy – check our gallery to see it. It’s said that a new engine and transmission, developed from the Ferrari Four (FF), are being put through their paces.
The new 599′s spec is to include a 6.3-litre V12 direct-injection engine, producing 700bhp – 88bhp more than the current model. Unlike the FF, it won’t feature four-wheel drive – all the power will be sent to the rear wheels through the FF’s seven-speed twin-clutch transmission, with an F1-style electronic differential.
It’s slick styling draws inspiration from the 458 and FF, with a strip of LED daytime running lights at the front, a 599 GTO-inspired diffuser at the rear and dramatic buttresses either side of the rear window. Sales of the new car will start in late 2012, and the price is set to increase from the current car’s $333,730 to around $354,198.
