It seems 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?

As you already know, Ferrari had debuted its first ever AWD system at the Geneva Motor Show. The automaker had brought in its new 4RM all-wheel drive system for the Ferrari Four concept or “FF” at the motor show last week.

The 4RM system could be defined as a 50 percent lighter than a standard all-wheel drive system. The mechanism goes as such: The PTU (power transfer unit) takes its torque directly from the crankshaft. At the same time, the two separate multi-plate clutches drive the front wheels independently.

The FF concept incorporates a four seated luxury interior and has a small trunk placed in the rear. The manufacturer has loaded it with 2 golf bags to demonstrate its capacity.

The power is attained from the mid-front mounted 6.3 liter V12 engine that churns out 660 PS (485 kW / 651 bhp) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque mated to a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph).

It sends power to an advanced Ruote Motrici (4RM) four-wheel drive system incorporated within. This makes the vehicle capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed 335 km/h (208 mph).
