The Italian based automaker Ferrari has announced that the replacement for the 599 GTB Fiorano, codenamed F152, will be officially presented at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and the supercar will be one of the company’s fastest-ever models, coming with a new V12 engine and the FF’s transmission.
With a replacement for the Enzo which seems to be a hybrid, Ferrari is also working on the successor of the 599 GTB Fiorano, but this time the supercar won’t go “green” on us and the Maranello manufacturer says that it will use the FF’s transmission, without having the all-wheel drive system, along with a new V12.
According to Ferrari, the F152 will be powered by a 6.3 liter direct-injection V12 engine which will be delivering around 700 horsepower, which will actually be 50 horsepower more than the FF and 88 horsepower more than the current 599 GTB Friorano, mated to the FF’s seven-speed twin-clutch transmission, with an F1-style electric differential, which will send power to the rear wheels.
The F152’s powerplant will be enough to make the supercar accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and ensure a top speed of 215 mph, which is about as fast as the Lamborghini Aventador.
Ferrari didn’t offer any extra details about the 599 GTB Fiorano replacement but the supercar is expected to be priced at around 225.000 GBP. The F152 is expected to be officially unveiled at the next year Geneva Motor Show.
