We’ve seen this Ferrari 612 test mule earlier this month, but this time there may be more info. A new rumor is suggesting that the stacked exhaust pipes and new hood are not part of a facelift, but a full-on replacement. The 612’s replacement could even feature a 4x4 system to provide a direct rival to the all-wheel drive Lamborghinis (although the 612 seats twice as many.)
What makes us a little skeptical that this is a whole new car planned for 2011, and not just a 612 touch-up, is Ferrari’s other plans. We know Ferrari is working on a successor to the F430, plus there are rumors of a refreshed 599 GTB , 599 Spyder and California Mondial . If even half of these rumors are true, Ferrari would likely be too busy to put together a whole new car.
