Spy Shots: Ferrari 612 caught testing

by Zach Bowman (RSS feed) on Aug 3rd 2010 at 4:01PM

Details may have finally surfaced on the mystery Ferrari we saw bumping around Maranello in a piece of shaky-hand-cam YouTube action late last month.

According to Auto Express, the long-nosed Horse could be none other than the 612 Scaglietti. The site points to the camo'd mule's rear roofline and somewhat recognizable hood as evidence of the car's identity. If true, this mule would have us believe that the next Scag will wear headlights that are at least partially inspired by the new 458 Italia. As for the rest of the car, it's hard guessing as to what we can expect.

This tester wears such extensive cladding that it's nearly impossible to get a feel for what the rest of the car may look like, which means we'll have to wait until our army of spy photographers comes up with some photos of the car later in its development. Head over to Auto Express to get a look a look at the whole package.

New Ferrari 612 spied

All-new four-seater 612 spied testing in Maranello

Text: Luke Madden / Photos: Automedia03rd August 2010

The Ferrari stable is preparing to open its doors to an all-new Prancing Horse! Our spy photographers have snapped this heavily disguised prototype- likely to be the next 612 Scaglietti- testing in Maranello.

Despite the heavy camouflage, the 612’s long, raked trademark bonnet is a dead giveaway as to the identity of this mystery mule. Also recognisable is the sloping rear roofline of the current car.

With a series of fake body panels at the back of the car- and possibly even a fake windshield- it’s hard to gleam any details about how the rear will shape up, but expect a complete re-design featuring LED tail-lights.

At the front, headlights inspired by the 458 Italia are immediately recognisable, while the newcomer is also likely to borrow the active aerodynamics also seen on Ferrari’s flagship.

As for what’s under the bonnet, there are very few solid details. The only certainty is that power will be increased and emissions will be cut, whether that’s done by downsizing the V12 of the current car to a V8, or employing a hybrid KERS system remains to be seen.
