One-off Ferrari 458 with a V12 Engine from a LaFerrari revealed

Back in January, we reported about a mysterious V12 Ferrari teased by car collector Gregb23 on his Instagram account. After months of speculations, he has finally revealed the car.

As speculated, the car turns out to be a 458 with a Laferrari V12, albeit without the hybrid system. Gregb23 also provided some details on Ferrarichat Forum – “LaFerrari prototype used to develop the engine. No hybrid system. Drives like a ‘normal car’. Not possible to register for road use and track only for the first 24 months.”

From the rear, the car doesn’t seem to exhibit any aesthetic difference from a 458. But more pictures will help us find out if there are any. Probably, it gets wider rear tracks to go with the bigger engine, which is not yet evident in the picture.
