Video: 2011 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti testing at Fiorano

A new Ferrari is prancing up the company’s Fiorano test circuit and, from the looks of this video, it just might be the new 2011 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti .

Nothing is imminent as far as when this car is going to be unveiled, but Ferrari has mentioned in the past that the new Scaglietti could find its way into dealerships sometime in the coming years, possibly even as early as 2012. We also know that the next generation 612 Scaglietti will come with a modified V12 engine with direct-injection, as well as a stripped down chassis that should make it lighter and give the new Scaglietti more speed than its predecessor.

There’s also word coming around that the new 612 could also use gasoline-hybrid technology , a system Ferrari developed from the KERS system it currently uses inFormula One race cars. With this technology, the new Scaglietti supercar would come with an electric motor, a dual-clutch 7-speed Formula One transmission, and a set of lithium-ion batteries that should provide fuel economy and reduce C02 emissions in the process, similar to the 599 GTB Fiorano HY-KERS concept the company unveiled earlier this year.

If it makes you feel better, you could just translate it to "less pit stops needed." The diesel Audi’s have been taking advantage of that at Le Mans.
