The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is due for a major overhaul and the next generation 2+2 is expected to grow in size, be available with all-wheel drive and come packing Ferrari's new HY-KERS system.
Caught cold weather testing near the Arctic Circle, the 2012 model is sporting a longer wheelbase and redesigned front and rear fascias, along with a massive hood bulge. Power is expected to be provided by an Enzo-derived V12 putting out around 530 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, and delivering grunt to a modified seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox found in the 458 Italia and Ferrari 599 HY-KERS concept.

Although the fitment of all-wheel drive remains a rumor, there's a significant chance that the next 612 will be equipped with Ferrari's new hybrid system, complete with lithium-ion battery pack and three-phase electric motor to put out an addition 100 hp. If we're reading our tea-leaves properly, we'd expect the new 612 to be unveiled early next year with sales beginning in late 2011.

      it's going to be even bigger than the 612!?
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, this isn't bigger. If you look closely, it's almost exactly the same size with, perhaps, a little less wheelbase in the rear cabin area (though it'll surely have shorter overhangs).

        Also, I think AB/Worldcars got this wrong: The current one makes more horsepower from it's 575-derived V12. The Enzo-based motor makes around 620 hp in the 599 so I'd think it would make a LOT more than 530 hp.

        That's what I was thinking. Do they really have any reason for making it any bigger? The back seat in the current one is already decent sized, so i figure making it bigger is just overkill.

      It looks kind of like a Porsche Panamera in the spy-shot.
