Ferrari 612 teaser – Click above to expand

Before Ferrari officially debuts its 612 Scaglietti replacement to the public, the automaker is holding a private event where a select few people will get to see the new car in its final, production-spec glory. An anonymous Autoblog reader sent us the invitation you see above, which loosely translated from Italian to English reads, "Get ready to jump on board... Ferrari invites you to discover an all-new Ferrari in preview." The invite also includes a nice teaser shot of the car's front quarter panel. The private unveiling appears to be an online-only viewing affair and will be held on Friday, January 21 at 12:00 CET, or 6:00 AM Eastern time here in the United States.

We've seen plenty of spy shots of the Ferrari 612 successor, and even though the final design has been nicely camouflaged with boxy cladding, it's no secret that the new car will be all sorts of sexy. The front end looks to be inspired by the 458 Italia, and the very classic shooting brake proportions are fitting for a grand tourer such as the 612. Oh, and did we mention that the car is rumored to have around 670 horsepower from a 6.3-liter V12? Our interest is indeed piqued.

      I've just seen it. Got the message earlier with "Ready to take a seat?" question. I have to say, this model is totally different from the last ones. But it's kinda interesting and hm..frankly? strange. I mean I like the whole curviness of the body, especially the rear end, but front end and side look are definetely to accept after seeing it somewhere on the road. Headlights are like in Italia, but make impression like they were bigger and not so well fitted to the bonnet.
      Well, all in all the FF is more design-enjoyable than Scaglietti.

      I received the message, it says "Ready to take a seat?" Cannot wait to see what Ferrari has in store for us. I've been guessing the car will be numbered 630 due to the 6.3 liter engine.

      The camo'd version looks like it would be right at home in Death Race.
