There’s another new Ferrari on the way, and the spy photographers at Motor Trend managed to snap a picture of it testing. The car will be a replacement for the current 599 GTB, and is currently codenamed F152.
Like the 599, the new car is expected to be a front-engine coupe that packs V-12 power. In fact, the test car seen here is most likely simply the body of a 599 GTB slapped atop the mechanicals of the new car. The new Ferrari will most likely use the same 6.3-liter V-12 that debuted in the Ferrari FF, where the engine makes 651 hp and 504 lb-ft of torque. The current 599 GTB uses a 6.0-liter V-12 good for 611 hp and 448 lb-ft; Ferrari claims the car tackles the 0-to-62-mph dash in 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 205 mph.
The new Ferrari is expected to debut within about a year, so we could see it make an appearance at an auto show in early 2012. There’s no word yet on what it will be called -- the current 599 name is drawn from the engine’s displacement of 5999 cubic centimeters.
