Ferrari 812 successor test mule spied with pre-production bodywork
Ferrari has been working on its next-generation flagship GT for some time now. Earlier, we have seen test mules of the Ferrari 812 successor disguised as the Roma. Now though, the first prototypes with pre-production bodywork have been spotted.
As you would imagine, this is an early prototype of the 812 successor. While Ferrari has done a great job of masking the bodywork with camouflage, you can still make out the long hood, swooping roof line that blends into a stubby rear end. The car has quad exhausts, similar to the 812 Superfast and is riding on generic wheels.
Now, details of the Ferrari 812 successor are scarce. However, reports suggest the car might use an all-new naturally aspirated V12 engine. But, it is likely to be smaller than the current 6.5-liter unit and could get some hybrid assistance.
The 812 Superfast was powered by a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that developed 789 hp and 530 lb-ft of torque. The engine in the 812 Competizione produces 830 hp @ 9250 rpm and 510 lb-ft @ 7000 rpm. While it is similar to the one that powers the Superfast, it revs to 9500 rpm.
