It's not every day that Ferrari unveils a new model. And most of the time, when it does, it's a variant of an existing one. But when the doors open at the Geneva Motor Show next month, word has it that the House that Enzo Built will be showcasing an all-new front-engined V12 GT to replace the long-serving 599.

Dubbed F620, the all-new supercar is expected to pack a 6.2-liter version of the direct-injection V12 from the FF into an aluminum chassis. Expect the usual smattering of carbon fiber bits, but don't expect to see the costly material being used for structural components: Ferrari has discounted the application due to its high cost to manufacture and repair. Also off the table for this model is the part-time all-wheel-drive system from the FF, as the F620's anticipated 700 horsepower will drive the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

However accurate the forecasted specifications turn out to be, we'll find out one way or another next month.

      What is with Ferrari's naming schema? They dropped the F when replacing the "F430" with the "458 Italia" and now they are adding an F when replacing the "599 GTB Fiorano" with the "F620". And then there's the "FF" that replaced the "612 Scaglietti". Don't get me wrong, they're all great cars - I just don't get it.

        I'm sure "F620" is simply the model code.

        It seems like they alternate the F: 348, F355,360,F430,458

      Gosh Damn't autoblog! It's not a fricken supercar! Ferrari, the father of the street legal supercar, only refers to the 288GTO, F40, F50, and Enzo as supercars. Not the 599GTO, not the 599, not the 430 or the 458. ONLY the top of the line. You are doing journalism a disservice by using the over-hyped word "supercar" in reference to every damn sports car out there. This is an exotic. NOT a super car.

        I agree, except.... Ferrari didn't father the supercar. Lamborghini did with the Miura.

          considering lamborghini went from making tractors to cars, it easy to see why the miura was the first supercar.......try doing it for 60yrs....

        There are 1000 definitions of supercar, and the boundaries are all fuzzy as hell. How I see it? California= GT car, 458= entry level supercar, FF= luxury GT car, 599= GT supercar, 599GTO= supercar, and Enzo= hypercar. And all of the above are exotics because of their price and origin, and sportscars because they are. I may be wrong, but I'm not sure your classification is the only one that goes. Fact is, supercar doesnt appear in any English dictionary, so its meaning is derived from public association with that term. So if enough people call a 599 a supercar, it might as well be.

      What to expect? Automatic-only, ugly frog face, heavy, won't sound like much.

        Automatic-only? Well, yes, but it is a DCT and Ferrari seems to be one of the best at making those feel smooth, lightning fast, and racy. Plenty of supercar makers are dropping manuals, and I dont think this new crop of digital supercardom really needs them. Ugly frog face? The only Ferrari that has anything near a frog face is the FF, and it isnt completely ugly. Plus, it's subjective, so I shouldnt argue with you if you think all new Ferraris are ugly and that the F620 will be. Heavy? Bitch please. Of course a V12 GT super coupe is going to be a bit heavy, but nothing to cry about. Should be mch lighter than the 599. Ok, now here is where I know you are oblivious or trolling when you say "wont sound like much". All Ferraris sound like God's own 8 or 12 piece orchestra, and infinitely better than the muted whistle and farts that any turboed competitor sounds like.

          The 599, 430, 355, Enzo, all those cars sound better than the newer V8 and V12 engines Ferrari makes. The 458 sounds dull compared to the V8 Ferrari's that came before it, and as you go back in time they sound better and better, with that loud, high-pitched shriek they used to have.

      This just reminds me that we'll likely never see a mass produced car built on even a partially Carbon Fiber platform. If the company with arguably the most experience (outside of military/aero) using CF can't justify it's repairability or price/performance tradeoff, we'll never see it realized in anything sub $500k. But i'm sure even in aluminum the F620 will do amazing things - hopefully without becoming too digital and sanitized in the process.

        Either that, or Ferrari is just behind Toyota and McLaren and doesn't want to admit it. Both of those companies produce cars under $500k that use carbon fiber for substantial parts of the structure.
