Half a year has passed since the first sighting of the relief of the Ferrari 812 Superfast which is brewing to debut in 2024. The Italian brand continues with the test program, and once again the mule has been seen in the vicinity of the Maranello headquarters, camouflaged and with features of the Ferrari Roma as in the first sighting so there is no great progress, at least on the aesthetic side.
Known by the internal code of «F167», the new spy photos confirm that the development continues at the pace set by Ferrari, which has a long time before the production prototypes make an appearance, although the proportions will not be very different from the mule. With the passenger compartment set back and a long hood to accommodate a new V12 engine in the front compartment, the heir to the 812 Superfast will offer a more modern and elegant style.
