Contrary to earlier reports, Ferrari maintains that it will not be showing the F70 supercar successor to the Enzo at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January. In fact, our sources say the launch rollout plans for the hybrid 920-horsepower exotic have not been finalized.

One scenario would have a launch separate from major auto shows in order to maximize publicity. Another factor in the decision not to show the F70 in Detroit is a desire not to step on the launch at the show of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte. Both Maserati and Ferrari are owned by the Fiat group.

      I wouldn't take a Ferrari to Detroit either.

      They're probably delaying it to get more LULZ from artist speculations like the pic above.

      Detroit?! Really. That city is only good for crappy GM products, not internatioal iconic names like Ferrari. I am glad they changed their mind.

      I knew Detroit wasn't going to get it. Detroit is lucky if Ferrari even has one car on display. Let alone a full set-up with an a world release of the halo model.

      They will launch in California probably where their biggest market is

        Ny is the biggest market, La is number 2 That's just a function of population and affluence though.

      Detroit is a great city full of culture and richness. It is a very important economic centre for the automotive world. A true model to the world. Ferrari will shoot itself in the foot for not introducing the F70 at auto show.

      Let me guess, they'll debut it in China or Hong Kong. This sounded too good to be true from the start. I frankly don't buy any reasoning for this other than the fact that they want to hit where they'll make the most bang. This blows.

      These single largest market for ferraris is the greater New York are and the second largest is the LA area. It would make sense to debut a car that will primarily be sold to Americans, in America. Perhaps pebble beach? Fiat/Chrysler may want to debut this in their backyard of Detroit, but perhaps a little closer to buyers or where buyers may gather would be a bright idea.

      Good! The Detroit auto show is only good for crap such as GM and things that only grease monkeys can buy. Not real cars like Ferrari. It's a bloody miracle they get Maserati for begin with!
