We expected the successor to the Ferrari Enzo, for now a model referred to as the F70, to be the showstopper of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Finally seeing the real car will be good news whenever it happens, but even better news is that Inside Line has just reported that the F70 will be revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

We have no idea what the gigundously powerful coupe will look like – the rendering above is the work of KGP Photography, whose spy shooters have shot quite a number of prototypes hidden under enormous amounts of camo. We do know it will have a carbon fiber chassis with a Formula One-style build developed by one of the key players in the F1 team – the chassis will be 20-percent lighter than the Enzo's, yet stiffer. Within it will be something like 900 horsepower unleashed from a mid-mounted V12 assisted by an evolution of the energy-regenerating HY-KERS unit. Weight for the whole car has been rumored to come in a snort-inducing 2,500 pounds.

Suddenly, January in Detroit isn't looking quite so bleak.

      guys don't worry it won't look exactly like that. Proportions probably about right, details similar-ish in some cases... but that's it
      LOLO

      I don't know what all the fuss is about, this car looks BEAUTIFUL. Sure, the design isn't as pretty as some past products of Ferrari, but it's different. It's fresh, and unique. Any design cues that may seem unattractive are sure to be for the sake of function. This car will be the best Ferrari yet, no doubts about that.

      Please don't look like that, please don't look like that, please don't look like that.

      I think that looks great! It's not prettty or feminine like some Ferrari's but it certainly looks brutal and technical as it should for a real F car.

      Looks ungainly. Do not like. I don't care how fast it is.

      Pepperidge Farms remembers when Ferrari halo cars were purposefully pretty to look at. I hope someone over at KGP was struggling with the digital camo removal and this is all a big misunderstanding.

      If it is anything like the photo its ugly. Why a Detroit unveiling? I would think that would be more suited for LA or NYC.

        I was wondering that, too, but maybe because of their connection with Chrysler.

      So 2500 pounds in Ferrari speak is what, 3050 lbs or so?
