Photos of a "green" hybridized Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano have surfaced on the web today ahead of the public debut in Geneva next week. 

In response to initial reports, Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo confirmed during the Ferrari F10 Formula 1 car launch that a 599 hybrid concept was indeed under development.  Now photos have surfaced from a private presentation and they are quite detailed.

Looking at the photos with strategically placed mirrors for optimum viewing, we can see the electric motor attached to the rear of the differential. Located just beneath the floor pan is the battery labeled "Danger High Voltage."

Our friends at Carscoop are reporting the eletric motor produces approximately 100 PS (74 kW / 99 hp) and 110 lb-ft (149 Nm) of torque.  Despite the added weight of 100 kg (220 lbs) from the hybrid components, the power to weight ratio is more than compensated by the horsepower generated by electric motor therefore making the 599 hybrid faster than the standard 599.

Also to be featured in the 599 hybrid concept is a version of the F1 inspired Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS).  Stay tuned for further details.
