Ferrari 612 teaser – Click above to expand
Before Ferrari officially debuts its 612 Scaglietti replacement to the public, the automaker is holding a private event where a select few people will get to see the new car in its final, production-spec glory. An anonymous Autoblog reader sent us the invitation you see above, which loosely translated from Italian to English reads, "Get ready to jump on board... Ferrari invites you to discover an all-new Ferrari in preview." The invite also includes a nice teaser shot of the car's front quarter panel. The private unveiling appears to be an online-only viewing affair and will be held on Friday, January 21 at 12:00 CET, or 6:00 AM Eastern time here in the United States.
We've seen plenty of spy shots of the Ferrari 612 successor, and even though the final design has been nicely camouflaged with boxy cladding, it's no secret that the new car will be all sorts of sexy. The front end looks to be inspired by the 458 Italia, and the very classic shooting brake proportions are fitting for a grand tourer such as the 612. Oh, and did we mention that the car is rumored to have around 670 horsepower from a 6.3-liter V12? Our interest is indeed piqued.
