    Ferrari is moving to Imola - and fast!

    Auto Express:Ferrari Imola On Track

    Ferrari is moving to Imola - and fast. The hot new two-seater which will replace the 575 Maranello, is tipped to be named after the legendary circuit which hosts the San Marino Grand Prix. Exclusive pictures can be seen in the current issue of Auto Express

    Taking its styling cues from the 612 Scaglietti, insiders tell us the new model will be called the F600 Imola, and will slot into the Ferrari range between the smaller F430 and the four-seater 612. The badge comes from the 600bhp, 6.0-litre V12 under the bonnet.

    Designed by Pininfarina, the F600 will have aggressive features to mark it out as a focused supercar. Protruding wing mirrors, will become a styling hallmark of all future Ferraris.

    Already part way through its development programme, our spies snapped the prototype leaving the factory. The test mule is wearing a cut-down 612 bodyshell, with the shorter wheelbase and ill-fitting panels clearly visible.

    Many mechanical parts are shared with the 612, and the car will be based on an aluminium spaceframe chassis. Longer than the outgoing 575, the F600 will be a true driver's machine, but also far more stable when cornering.

    The engine is derived from the unit found in the Enzo supercar, so buyers can look forward to a 0-60mph sprint time of around four seconds, while a clutchless manual transmission will provide the quickest possible gearchanges.

    Expect the new supercoupé to have similar prices to the model it replaces, making F600 Imola ownership the preserve of those with a budget of at least Pounds150,000. Anyone with more to spend can also look forward to an open-top Barchetta version, scheduled for 2007.

    Wow, this car is gonna rock. So it seems it will share the V12 with the Enzo Ferrari, that's awesome! 600 bhp should make it a spectacular performer. As far as spy shots all the ones to date are covered with 612 Scaglietti body panels, which it will share none of. From what I have read here and in other places, it will share the basic platform (albeit shortened), the basic suspension modules with some new tuning and parts, and the gearbox with different programming. Pretty much everything else will be different or exclusive to the new car. By the way, even though it might have 600 bhp, the 600 in the name I'm sure refers to 6.0 liter displacement, like other Ferraris. But at this point who knows the actual name, we all thought the F430 was going to be called the 430 Monza remember. Either way, I can't wait to see this car!!!!

    Those are some numbers! I hope it will be something completely different than the 550/575 in its appearance as those were very plain. Porsche will have to make use of the cgt V-10 in a coupe to keep up.

    Yeah, I'd like to see it as well. Because it seems unless it comes from Ferrari the information is never 100% correct.
    But regardless, this car is going to be something else.
