A new prototype of the upcoming Ferrari F12 Versione Speciale has been spied in the midst of testing. While the name of the car remains unconfirmed, we do know that it will be a faster and more hardcore variant of the F12 Berlinetta. It was originally expected to debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 but that evidently didn’t happen. Consequently, a world debut at Geneva in 2016 seems likely.
The specifications for the Ferrari F12 Versione Speciale are not public knowledge. However, we hear that it will be a naturally-aspirated machine, powered by a 6.3-litre V12 engine. It will almost certainly produce around 800 hp and some are suggesting it could use the HY-KERS system developed for the LaFerrari. It should weigh approximately 1415 kg thanks to a 100 kg weight reduction. Just 650 copies will be produced and should land on customers driveways in Spring 2016.
Beyond the mechanical modifications, the F12 Versione Speciale will feature a number of new visual and aerodynamic parts. These will include modified front and rear fascias as well as eye-catching shark fins above the rear wheel arches.
