Here’s the good news: When Ferrari promoted the new F12berlinetta as the most powerful Ferrari in history, they probably did so with a sly smile on their faces knowing that they’re producing another supercar that will put even the F12berlinetta in its place.

The highly-anticipated successor to the Ferrari Enzo, codenamed the ’F70’, is poised to carry a 7.3-liter V12 engine that will develop in excess of 800 horsepower, and one that will receive close to 120 horsepower courtesy of a hybrid system. Do your math and that’s around 60 ponies more than what the F12berlinetta is capable of.

Now for the bad news: For those expecting the Italian automaker to introduce the F70 this year - and really, all indications led to that happening - you’re going to have to wait a little while longer because according to Auto News Europe, Ferrari will hold off on the debut of the supercar until either the 2013 NAIAs or the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The automaker still has plans to debut the car this year, but that will only be limited to a private unveiling with only a handful of VIP guests in attendance. Expect to be surprised when it comes to pricing because Montezemolo said: "We want to surprise people not just in terms of price but also with the car itself."

So there you have it, folks. The hype surrounding the F70 just got more interesting with the only caveat being that we’re going to have to wait a little longer to see the F70 in the flesh.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It’s about time they take up the scene again. I’ll be supporting Ferrari F70!

I’ll wait for this to happen. It’s not even released yet, and it’s already stirring up the excitement and anticipation among people.

Ferrari is lying. Maybe for now, this will be the most powerful. But in the years to come, I’m pretty sure they will release a further upgraded automotive.

If there’s a company that is fully dedicated to providing powerful cars, then it is Ferrari. After this Ferrari F70, I wonder to what degree their next car will try to achieve.

This is truly remarkable; producing a fast car that can outdo their own creation. I’m looking forward to seeing this.

Wow, Ferrari certainly doesn’t know how to stop producing powerful cars. This is what makes them popular among car enthusiasts. I’ll be looking forward to this F70.

This company is impressive that they released two cars this year, and so far another set next year is expected.

After the successful release of the F12 Berlinetta, Ferrari already has something to offer for their followers which will surprise them on its debut in 2013.

Why should we be surprised at the price? The first thought that comes to mind is that it will be cheaper than expected. Well, that would really be shocking as the specifications are extremely amazing.
