Breaking News: Six Ferrari Future Models Revealed

Ferrari reveals six new models
Ferrari has revealed it will produce six new models before 2013 as part of Fiat's restructuring plans announced today, including a new Enzo hypercar and a hardcore version of the 458.

First up will be a open-top Spider variant of the 458 that's due in 2011. Also penciled in for launch next year will be an all-new version of the range-topping, V12-powered 612 Scaglietti, a car that is also likely to spawn Ferrari's first ever hybrid variant.

Ferrari revealed a hybrid 599 at the Geneva motor show, although the 612 is more likely Ferrari V12 to get hybrid tech as it would be easier to package in the four-seater. However, the system is not an F1-style KERS system that had been expected to make production in its road cars.

The new 612 has been codenamed F151, although what name it will take for production isn't yet clear.

In 2012 Ferrari will launch a new version of its halo Enzo hypercar. Just 400 Enzos were produced between 2002 and 2004 and the new model is likely to be powered by either a direct-injection twin-turbo V8 or a direct-injection twin-turbo V6, as revealed by Autocar in 2008.

It’s expected the next Enzo will be also be a flagship for Ferrari’s new-generation aerodynamic technology, including ‘active aerodynamics’ that pump air out through the body to influence the way airflows over and under the skin.

Another car due in 2012 is an all-new version of the 599 GTB Fiorano, currently known as F152.

A major facelift of the California will be launched in 2013; this is currently known as the California M. The final new model revealed by Ferrari today is a hardcore version of the 458, which should take the Scuderia name of its 430 predecessor and be launched in 2013.

Ferrari has also said it wants to keep the differentiation between its sports cars and its grand tourers, ensuring there won't be any crossover between the 458 and 599 supercars and the 612 and California cruisers.

The firm will not make any more than four standard production models, meaning its range will stay as 458, 599, 612 and California. The Enzo is considered as a special model, and not part of its standard range.
