    Ferrari 612 successor

    Just came across this article about the replacement for the 612 :

    It seems like just yesterday that Ferrari's 612 Scaglietti was launched but it's actually been almost five years, which is why it’s not surprising that test-mules for the car’s successor are already running around the streets of Maranello. Designers will be primarily focused on giving it an edgier, more up-to-the-minute look, however, the new look may be joined by a greener powertrain as well.

    While this test-mule was previously thought to be for a minor mid-cycle facelift for the 612 Scaglietti, key details such as the extended front-end, bonnet bulge and stacked exhaust pipes suggest this vehicle represents something much more significant than a facelift.

    Not much is known about the successor to the 612 as the car’s is expected to make its launch until late 2011, but according to previous reports the car could feature a brand new V12 powerplant. The new engine is tipped to have 40% fewer carbon-dioxide emissions than the current mill, which would fit
    Ferrari’s internal goal of reducing its emissions and fuel-consumption by that same amount by 2012.

    If the report proves true, the Scaglietti successor will have a fuel economy of roughly 19mpg (12.3L/100km) – up from 11.5mpg (20.5L/100km) for the current model. Power isn't expected to grow much, as the 612’s standard 533hp (397kW) output is already generous.

    Other rumors include the possibility of Ferrari adding its
    Insert able 4x4 system as well as a hybrid option.

    Sorry if it's a repost. :)

     612 needs far more tq to be competitive and daily-useable

    Lack of side/head airbags in '09 (or even in '03) in a ~4300lb car illustrates how inept is F safety engineering


    Re: Ferrari 612 successor

    Oh god .... It looks like they may give it the Lexus IS-F cum Ferrari Cali exhaust treatment.

    I wonder how many other Cali elements are going to creep into an already botched styling product that is the 612.

    More torque? The 997TT with a turbo engine has 460 lb·ft vs 433 for the Ferrari V12.

     

    What do you think of all the V8 out there then?


    Re: Ferrari 612 successor
