The car codenamed F142 is going to be the Ferrari
F450, successor to the current F430
. Set on a modified F430 chassis with a wider front and rear track, the new car
looks evolutionary but the changes aren't insubstantial. A 4.5-liter engine will be placed amidships, and its expected 500+ horsepower will need extra cooling. That means larger intakes, perhaps all around. In back, the exhaust could be routed through the large aperture in the diffuser. The car could be shown as early as this year's Frankfurt Auto Show
, with the coupe going on sale as early as next year, with Scuderia and convertible versions following.
