Contrary to the hopes of everyone attending the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, The Motor City will not stage the debutante ball of the successor the Ferrari Enzo. Before the Detroit show rumor, it was thought that we'd see the coupe, referred to as the F70, for the first time at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The Geneva timeline makes more sense, seeing the amount and kind of camo the car is still wearing on roads around Maranello, as seen here caught by a man-on-the-street. Copious amounts of hard plastic cladding, the faux-shovel snout and miles of gaffer tape hide the body from view. If Detroit were a go, then we'd expect to see the hybrid supercar out somewhere with the cloth and canvas cladding the Italians switch to when D-Day is close. As it is, other than a new set of wheels, this looks like the same cladding we saw the car wearing in June, when it looked a lot more spiffy.

Or maybe not – Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezemolo said earlier this year that "At the end of the year, we'll also be unveiling the new Enzo, a limited series model and our first-ever hybrid car." But we don't yet know whether Montezemolo is referring to a public unveiling, as at an auto show, or a private event for potential buyers. We have six weeks to find out whether the camo or the CEO has it right.

      It would seem logical to introduce some sort of a KERS system at the very top of the line-up, doing so would showcase Ferrari's latest generation technology or perhaps its interpretation much like its AWD on the FF. That said I'm hoping that the Enzo replacement will be more in spirit like the F40.

      If even anyone was ever worried about a limited edition Ferrari other than the F40 actually looking good... Fear not. :-(

      Even with the camo on it looks like a cross between a flat black door stop and a F-22 Raptor. A really really nice Door stop though. I am sure after the bits come off it will look swoopy and cut like the 458.
