Being the Ferrari’s most powerful V12-engined production car of all time, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano features a 6.0-liter V12 engine derived directly from the Enzo supercar, producing 620 hp at 7,600 rpm and 446 pound-feet of torque at 5,600 rpm.
Now Ferrari prepares the successor for the 599 GTB Fiorano, code named F152 and has started testing it. Well, you have the chance to see it here, because spy photographers managed to catch it on camera.
Here you can see a a typical mule, under which chopped up 599 GTO body is the new chassis and powertrain. Keep in mind that, the F152 will look nothing like this at all. Powered by a modified version of the great 6.3 liter V12, this one will get direct injection and probably stay rear-wheel-drive only. Power is expected to climb close to 700 horsepower, if not more, and will connect to the rear wheels via the new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
While Ferrari FF is more the family orientated family car for everyday use, the 599 successor will be the true super sportscar thanks to the use of more aluminium and carbon fibre.
So far the real name and details about pricin are still unknown, but expect to debut in 2012 being priced slightly more than the current 599 GTB Fiorano, which cost $320,000.
