The Italian exotic supercar maker is already hard at work to deliver a fresher take on the F12 Berlinetta model, and a prototype has been caught while undergoing road tests around the company’s Maranello headquarters in Italy.
The development car is of course clad in heavy camouflage but we can see the distinctive profile won’t be changed and Ferrari is most likely hiding a series of aerodynamic enhancements – maybe inspired by the ones found on the special series F12tdf. The main rumor across the mill is the facelifted F12 Berlinetta won’t be joining its turbo brethren, instead keeping the same naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine – most likely massaged for more power, maybe around 760 horsepower (567 kilowatts), for a significant increase.
The flagship GT model will also pack an upgraded dual-clutch automatic transmission and maybe even a four-wheel steering system, with all upgrades lowering the sprint time to 100 km/h to a tad less than three seconds. The rumor mill has named the new model the F12 M and we could also see a bevy of interior upgrades such as the dual-screen infotainment layout, as premiered by the GTC4 Lusso, among others. The model should be ready for a worldwide public reveal early next year, most likely premiering during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
