Ferrari will unveil the GT in October at the Paris Motor Show, but first official images will be revealed in just a few days. But, until then here are the best shots ever of Ferrari’s direct rival for the Aston Martin DB9.
The GT will feature a metal folding roof for the first time in Ferrari’s history. This is likely to add weight, although iconic Italian styling house Pinifarina is heavily involved and says it will demonstrate new lightweight construction techniques on the GT.
Under the bonnet of the front-engined, rear-drive GT will be a 4.3-litre V8 engine but, aside from its block, this unit has little in common with the F430’s high-revving powerplant.
It will feature direct injection, new intakes, cylinder heads and valve trains, and is expected to offer a more relaxed power delivery. It will also mark the debut of a new type of throttle body never before used on a car.
