Now that Ferrari has launched the FF as the official replacement of the 612 Scaglietti, it's time for the Italian automaker to wrap up development of the successor to the 599. While we previously spotted this car's replacement undergoing development in a California shell, what you see here are the first photos that actually give a glimpse of the new car's shape, camouflaged as it may be.

The 599 successor – rumored to be dubbed F620 – will likely be powered by Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12, churning out over 700 horsepower. Unlike the all-wheel-drive FF, the 599 replacement will continue to use rear-wheel drive, sending its power to the back wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with an F1-style electronic differential.

Our sources suggest that the F620 will be much lighter than the outgoing 599, due in part to a larger usage of aluminum in the body construction. As for design, it's safe to assume that the coupe will take a large influence from the 458 Italia, with some cues from the FF thrown in for good measure. Then again, it's a Ferrari, so we doubt the finished product will be anything but stunning.

Expect to see more of the F620 as it continues its development testing over the next few months. If things move along at a steady pace, we could see the production car debut as early as the Geneva Motor Show in March.

      Holy mother of god. It looks like they are going to do another Pokemon face. I can't understand why anyone would want a car with a demonic cartoon grin plastered across the front. The fact that Ferrari would do it is just absolutely beyond me. How does one of those idiotic faces belong on a $500K supercar? I actually feel like the FF would be kind of neat, but it's totally ruined by the front clip. Am I missing something? Do people actually like the front of the FF?

        I think Ferrari is going for the Mazda Pokemon happy go lucky look. It's their 'Why So Serious" response to V12 Lamborghini's devilish aggressive styling.

        Front fender/intake design is definitely an area where Ferrari is struggling to find a good aesthetic. The FF has that stupid grin, and the 459 manages to showcase not one, but two logos within 6 inches of one another. The two strategies are equally gaudy if you ask me. With the 599's stupid grinand the FF-inspired metal grid that you can see through the camo covering this 620 mule, I would count on seeing another shifty smile from the folks at Fer*Pixar*rari.

      I don't think that there's enough camo on this beast. We can all clearly see the front windshield.

      What is up w/ the animated face trend going on at Ferrari?? Just design a car already, and stop plastering cartoonish front ends on otherwise great vehicles.

      It's not camo. That's just a regular 599 with an owner who really paranoid of door dings and faded paint. I do the same thing for my 1994 Mazda Protege.

      Probably won't have a manual option. I'd say that's the last nail in poor old Enzo's coffin, but it's more like robbing his grave at this point.

        Di Montezemolo explained this already, Ferrari will not embrace itself to older technologies and they try to transfer as much technology as possible from F1 to road cars.

          There's one reason why his last name isn't "Ferrari."

      Going by how Ferrari rolls their GTs into production, the car that we should of get would of be a 599M like it happened with 550 Maranello > 575M Maranello, but the rumors say that this car uses the FF platform, so, completely new... if that is true, I wonder why.

        Instead of the M designation, it received the GTO treatment.

      It's wearing, like, a down-feather vest.

      Hmmm, the latest is a padded matte finish. Clever.
