Could this be the Ferrari F12 Spider or GTO ?

More powerful F12 on the way ?

Based on this spy photo, Ferrari could be working on a more powerful version of the F12 Berlinetta.

Grabbed by The Supercar Kids, this camouflaged F12 Berlinetta was spotted testing in Italy featuring a testing number plate, camouflage wrapping and horizontal slits next to the taillights which are not there on the production model.

One possibility is that this is an early stage Spider prototype as hinted by it's taped-off back glass except for a smaller rectangular section which might simulate the effective viewing area on the glass of a folding roof. This could also turn out to be a GTO, Stradale or HGTE variant of the F12 Berlinetta but at this point these are only speculations.

When the F12 came out about a year ago it was Ferrari's most powerful road car ever but now it has been dethroned by the LaFerrari. The Italians could be working on a different F12 model to bridge the gap between the two models.

As a reminder, the F12 Berlinetta is powered by a V12 6.2-liter engine with 740 HP (544 kW) and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. Linked to a dual-clutch gearbox, the car will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of more than 211 mph (340 km/h).

I too hope it will be a spider or maybe glass roof targa. If there's one thing I seriously hope it is NOT it would be a GTO!!! Those 3 letters IMHO should only be used for the most "special of special" enhanced Ferrari's. I love the 599 GTO but don't think it should have got the GTO brand (Stradale would have been good enough). Anyway, just my view.

It's probably a more powerful version, although I hope it's the Spider.
