SPIED! Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

2011-01-12 10:02

SPIED: Ferrari's 612 Scaglietti prototype is due to be unveiled later this year.

Our spies caught a mysterious Ferrari 612 Scaglietti replacement prototype undergoing testing outside of Maranello.

While the vehicle is heavily camouflaged, there appears to be a 458 Italia-inspired front fascia, a four-tailpipe exhaust system, and a prominent rear hatch.

Our spies tell us that the rear hatch is part of the camouflage as it "inflates and deflates at speed".

Set to be unveiled at the Geneva auto show in March 2011, the 612 successor will likely feature an advanced all-wheel drive system, a seven-speed double-clutch transmission and a 500kW 6.3-litre V12 engine.

The engine should rocket the new model from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and allow it to hit a top speed of 335 km/h.
