New Ferraris are always surrounded with intrigue, but some more than others.
Ahead of its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week, an image of the Italian automaker’s upcoming F620 GT has surfaced on the internet.
Submitted anonymously to GTSpirit.com, the cell phone photo is said to show a silver-painted wooden model of the two-seat car in its final form. Until now, the car has only been seen wearing heavy camouflage, most notably in a video released by Ferrari itself. According to the photographer, an even more detailed red model was seen nearby.
Curvier, with a more aggressive face than the $410,000 Ferrari 599 that it is set to replace, the F620 GT is reported to have a 740 hp 6.3-liter V12 engine under its long hood and a top speed of 220 mph. Ferrari has said that it will be the most-powerful car it has ever made --but maybe not for long.
Rumor has it that the company is also working on a replacement for its legendary Enzo supercar and that it will have a 920 hp hybrid powertrain, possibly using a Formula One-style kinetic energy recovery system.
Intrigued? So are we.
