With the Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, we're starting to learn new information about the Ferrari 612 replacement.
While nothing is official, a report is indicating the car - code named F151 - will feature an advanced all-wheel drive system that uses a secondary clutch to send power to the front wheels when a slip is detected. Despite sounding relatively normal, rumors say the system will only operate at speeds above 145 km/h (90 mph).
Under the hood, motivation is expected to be provided by a 6.3-liter V12 engine with 670 hp (500 kW / 679 PS). It will be connected to a seven-speed double-clutch transmission that enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph).
On the design front, the 612 successor will reportedly adopt a practical rear hatch and 458-inspired styling. We're not sure how prominent the hatch will be (or if even exists), but it sounds like the car will be more of a shooting brake and less of an awkward coupe.
The model is expected to be unveiled in March, so stay tuned.
