Ferrari F70 RenderingThere are many reasons to get excited about the future of supercars right now. Between the development of the Acura NSX, the next-generation Nissan GT-R, the long line of lusty Lamborghini concepts and McLaren tinkerings, we may very well be on the doorstep of a golden age of exotic engineering. But few of those offerings send us licking our chops quite so quickly as the successor of the legendary Ferrari Enzo throne. Christened the F70 internally, the machine reportedly boasts a hybrid drivetrain brawny enough to bolt the Italian menace to 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds.

Odds are there's a healthy V12 mounted midship, and if the whispers we hear happen to be true, the F70 will be able to saunter up to a top speed of 250 mph. Our spy photo friends have produced a pair of renderings for us based on their own surreptitiously snapped images that help cut through the awful body cladding we've seen attached to the test cars frolicking about Europe at the moment.

If the production car looks even remotely as attractive as these sketches, the world is about to become a much sexier place. With lots of 458 in the front and hints of F40 in that engine cover, there's plenty to get excited about here. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until the 2013 Geneva Motor Show before we see the real deal.

      Photoshop should require a drivers license.

      Christ... if it looks like that something horrible has happened.

      Interesting render. The C-pillar area is kind of odd, it doesn't seem to smoothly rejoin the body and it makes the rear look quite flat. The front lights appear quite large as well, particularly if they're lifted (as they appear to be) from what the 458 currently uses. The nose and windshield surround look rather flat/rounded as well, I would expect Ferrari to use sharper edges to go with its current design language. Totally pumped to see the real deal though, I love me some Enzo...

      This is nothing more than a bad photochop of a 458, don't post this as if its news...

      Please tell me this is some kind of early (or late), cruel April Fool's joke...

      All this speculation about upcoming cars......we obviously know this is not it, probably not even close. Move on, nothing to see here.

      ahhhhh wild speculation sure is an ugly thing, aesthetically and otherwise

      I'm not much of a fan of these kinds of renderings. Let's add some Aston one-77 lower intake edges, the hood from a racing CTS-V coupe, the stupid stacked exhausts of the LF-A, some silly door cuts on top to suggest super-kewl doors, and why waste time making all the proportions and perspectives consistent? I hope the final car does not look like this mess.

      Omg. Please let it look much more cohesive and imaginative for the expected 1.2 mil price tag it's going to have.
