Oh, if we only had an apartment in Maranello overlooking Ferrari's private Fiorano test track. We think we'd get used to the noise of V12 exotics and formula racecars screaming at all hours for the chance to see what the Prancing Horse was working on. This time, an intrepid photographer snapped some shots of a disguised test mule running development laps around the circuit, betraying what could be the anticipated entry-level 2+2 GT the factory's spokespeople have been denying so vehemently.

Rumor has it the car under all that body cladding is running a 450hp direct-injection V8 in a body about 20 inches shorter than the Nimitz-class 612 Scaglietti. The car is expected to be unveiled as the GT California at the Paris show later this year, but we have a feeling we'll be hearing more about it before then.
