We are thrilled to bring to you some spy pictures of the evolving hybrid form of the Ferrari 599 successor. Going by the images, we guess the test vehicle sports what looks like a redesigned hood of the 599 GTO body.

There is no likelihood that the production model could look similar to the prototype snapped up on spy camera. We tend to think the alternative body is just a cover up to the design of the car’s aluminum monocoque chassis, supposedly derived from the Ferrari FF.

If you remember, the car was said to be the F152 earlier and will come with a 6.3-liter V12 engine of approximately 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS). It has been reported that power will be send evenly to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Expectations are that the car could come in for real by late 2012 or early 2013. Watch this space for more details.

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?
