It seems the Ferrari 599 successor will not be just a face-lifted version of 599. Such has been the success of the Ferrari Four (FF) concept and reports indicate that the company will now come up with an all-new car replacing the 599 by late 2012.

Obviously inspired by the FF concept, the model will ride on an aluminum chassis and has a multi-link rear suspension in order to improve ride quality. Besides, it is expected to adopt composite body panels to reduce weight. The rear-axle e-diff at the rear enables the engineers to tune the handling for agility or stability further.

Powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS), Ferrari 599 successor will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It allows the rear-wheels to receive power through an electronically locking rear differential.

The new model will also offer direct fuel injection to beat the present 599′s performance while offering substantial fuel economy gains. Gearing up for an all-new Ferrari 599?
