During a recent statement, Ferrari CEO, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, announced that the company will be headed to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with something "different" and adapted in response to the changing needs of the customers. That line, stated to no doubt enthrall us to the world of Ferrari, was only followed with the fact that it would carry either a hybrid powertrain or road applications from the Formula 1 KERS system.

Taking this statement - along with all of the latest spy shots and rumors - under consideration, we can only presume di Montezemolo was talking about the successor for the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti rumored to be equipped with a V12 550 hp and an electric motor of 100 HP. This engine option follows the pattern of the 599 Hy-Kers system that helps improve fuel consumption by 35%. This new model was also rumored to be offered with all-wheel-drive as an option. Di Montezemolo denied that all of these new technologies would be available before 2014, but this latest statement makes us wonder if that was just a shenanigan made to throw us all off their scent. Okay, so maybe that’s just our hope, but we’ll find out come January.

hmm. The 500 hp output can be deliver by a v8 technology. I hope that Ferrari will make a redo and boost in the figure performance of the vehicle before the debut of this car.

I have to say that the styling of the car is kind of elegant and sporty. However, I think the delivered power output of the car is kind of less powerful for a v12 technology!

With its roof, I can tell that its a electric car. I really hate this production for I think its kind of unreliable production and its less powerful.

hmm. I wonder of this car is electric? For a v12 technology, its produced power is quite less powerful. I want to see a boost power on its engine. Why don’t they just make a real production car?

Adding more power to the wheel will make the car increases its torque. It will interesting to see what will they come up.

Power for the bigger, 2011 Ferrari 612 looks set to come from a 6.3 litre V12 delivering something in the region of 650bhp

Nearly a year ago at the Geneva Auto Show, Ferrari unveiled its 599 HY-KERS prototype, using an F1-style brake regeneration system to deliver added power when required, but also help reduce emissions under normal driving.

Not going to lie: I think this sounds great. But I’ve always liked wagons… Let’s hope it looks better than this…

In a recent interview Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo let slip that the exotic Italian automaker’s Geneva Auto Show debut will be, “a very different new Ferrari.

It is unknown exactly what type of vehicle we can expect from Ferrari, and whether it will be a concept or production vehicle.

I already have negative respect for Ferrari because of their terrible designs as of late, but so help me god if Ferrari makes a ’cygnet,’ I will hate everything they do and everything they have ever done.

I think this one is a hybrid ferrari, I’ve seen this before at ferrari museum and I must admit that I was impressed with its looks. what i like about it is the suspension, when you ride the suspension is soft but when running it became more stiffer.
