Supercars.net somehow tracked down these pictures of the new Ferrari 600 Imola, slated to replace the 550/575 Marenello with a bigger version of the Scaglietti's V12 putting out 580-600 horses. We'll take these photos any day over the spy shots snapped in September, which confirmed the vehicle had some of the same styling as the longer Scaglietti released last year. Supercars.net pegs this for a Detroit or Geneva launch. More pics after the jump.

Thanks to all the readers who sent in tips on this one.

      Looks like the love child of the Scaglietti and the Hyundai Tiburon(credit to #7). Just plain ugly. 550/575 had a much cleaner and purposful look that appeared to be classic Ferrari. This looks like a classic Korean knock off of a Ferrari. And I have to agree with the others on the wheels, don't let those go to production please.

      Looks a little Aston Martiny, doesn't it?

      #3, is it really reasonably to say the history and passion of the Corvette is "nothing" compared to Ferrari? That seems like making a fact out of an emotional perspective. Why even say that?

      The 600 Imola look's really classy and sexy to me, almost extremely complete. I have loved Ferrari's since I was a kid in the early 70's. The Pentagram wheels look sweet, and invokingly so, a trademark style of Ferrari. The images shown are not the best, but if this is how it will stick - Enzo must be smiling!

      I think the pentagram wheels (seriously?) are a nice touch since you will have to sell your soul to get one. :O

      Ferrari may want to nix those for production...just a thought.

      Yeah, lets not comment on the wheels from a structural standpoint (lord knows 5 spoke wheels are a rarity, right?), lets instead instantly associate them with a "religious" symbol that actually has zero to due with its origin.

      Looks like the new Vette? Gee, where did GM get the inspiration for thier car? Hmm...

      I want this car in red
      I want an F430 in yellow
      I want tha 612 Scaglietti in blue

      and of course, I want an enzo in satin beige.

      I never used to like Ferarri that much until they debuted the F60, and later on, the F430. Now that they have, It is my dream to have these four cars. They are truly the best looking cars in the world.

      This ferrari is now called 599GTB, not 599GT8 or 499GT8. The front end looks okay, however the beltline from front to back pillar is what makes this car look so fat.

      The rear end is just plain hideous. Fat and porky, not the lean and sexy styling ferrari is known for. The power upgrade is sweet, and the wheels are just plain boy racer.

      Finally, Frank Stephenson succeeded in his secret mission to ruin Ferrari design and Ferrari brand.

      He has also ruined F430 by putting those huge nostrils in the front. A completely tasteless and barbaric attack on every ferrari model

      I'm italian and I want to say something...
      This won't be the new Ferrari 600 because pictures are photoshopped and you can see it by the rear visual. Then I've to remember you that american sports car were copied by italian one and the history and the passion of Corvette is nothing in front of the same of Ferrari...

      No,this is not an "photoshop".....it's the same type of publicity photo(s) Ferrari has used in the past several years.......plus the new wheels(yuk!) are the same as on the prototype/mules photographed and shown on the web.....Besides Italiaspeed posted these photos last night and they say they must get permission to show them...(???got me why)......These pics, unfortunately, are not the best (Only the Lord knows why), so I'll personally wait til better shots are available to "pass any judgement"...(as if I could buy one)....mule photos indicate a longer,lower silhouette.
      The real thing will be launched at the Geneve Auto show in IIRC March...
