According to a new report, Ferrari will unveil the hardcore F12 Berlinetta next week.

We were hoping to see the model at IAA last month in Germany, but Ferrari decided the 488 Spider's premiere was enough for the show which is why the supercar was not introduced in Frankfurt. Now, a report states the F12 GTO / Speciale will finally be unveiled next week and should look virtually the same as this yellow pre-production prototype spotted at the company's factory.

Set to feature a considerably more aerodynamic body, the range-topping prancing horse (if we exclude the sold out LaFerrari) will come with additional side vents in the same vein as the legendary 250 GTO which is why some are saying the Maranello-based company has decided to resurrect the iconic "moniker" which was used for the last time in 2010 with the limited-run 599 GTO.

The new body will be corroborated with a weight loss believed to stand at a whopping 200 kg (441 lbs) along with a 30 bhp (22 kW) bump in output to 760 bhp (567 kW) for the 6.3-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine. All these upgrades will enable a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in less than 3 seconds, thus making it faster than the standard F12 Berlinetta which needs 3.1s for the sprint before hitting a maximum speed of 211+ mph (340+ km/h).

It's not known at this point whether it will be a regular production car or a special edition set to be sold in limited quantities like the aforementioned 599 GTO of which only 599 units were ever made.
