The identity and details of the vehicle you see in the video are being kept firmly under lock and key for the moment, so we shall continue to know it simply as the Ferrari 599 successor, internally codenamed as F152. The heavily camouflaged prototype was caught doing the rounds near the Italian supercar maker's Maranello headquarters.

Whilst styling details are almost impossible to conclude from this latest spy video, there is no mistaking the big V12 growling beneath its posterior. This power unit is positioned in the mid-front area of the model and has a displacement of 6.3 liters generating more than 700 hp (700 PS / 522 kW).

The F152 will take a different direction to the Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren MP4-12C by using an aluminum body structure in favour of a carbon fiber body. Ferrari cites high construction costs with only minimal performance increases as the reason for this decision.

The successor to the Ferrari 599 is expected to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
