New test mule could be a successor to the current 612 Scaglietti. A mule body suggests the new model is likely still years away from a debut which is why we have this as a 2012 model year 612.

More spy pics have emerged of a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti mule, likely for a 612 successor model.

Not much is known about whatever new creation is being tested here but given that that bulge is still on the hood, the model is likely still years away from making it to market, which is why we have it pegged as a 2012 612 Scaglietti.

The bulge suggests the model is still in the early phases of testing, as Ferrari still do not have a body to fit properly to the engine. Previous speculation has Ferrari developing a hybrid system or a new V12 with a new twin-turbo system. Or it could just be Fiat's MultiAir system temporarily fitted to this mule in order to see how much performance enhancement can be had from that.

Continuing the speculation with these photos, it seems the dimensions of the front end are strangely stretched from the standard 612. The lengthened front end and larger wheel arches, which our spy photographers noticed on the last batch of pics, suggest a coming all-wheel drive system too?

It's a new Ferrari. That's what it is.
