Ferrari CEO Luca Cordero di Montezemolo let slip to reporters at the Geneva Motor Show that the newest iteration of the Enzo will be coming out at the end of 2012.
The new Enzo will receive a new name, as well as an all new design. ”It will be ‘presented to collectors and it will be a car with three aims: to amaze in terms of technological innovation (rationally not just performance), astonish and amaze in terms of design and amaze with its name,” said Montezemolo. “After calling a car Enzo in tribute to our founder indeed it isn’t easy to find a proper name for this car,” he finished.
Along the rumors spinning around the new Enzo, we’ve heard that it may feature hybrid technology.
At the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari will debut what the company claims to be the “most powerful Ferrari ever.” A statement which will be hard to backup, considering the Ferrari Enzo FXX makes 790 hp.
This newest offering will be the successor to the Ferrari 599 and is believed to be called the 620 GT, although a different name may be revealed at the official unveil in Geneva.
To speed up our hearts before the car is released, Ferrari is teasing us with about 20 seconds of footage of the new beast making its rounds on the track. Dressed in camouflage, the new supercar is still yet to be seen, but this video isn’t about looks, its all about sound. The exhaust note is enough to send a shiver up any Ferrari enthusiasts spine.
Watch the video after the jump, but more importantly listen to the fine tuned engine of the apparent, “most powerful Ferrari ever.”

“We now have a complete range of models which will be joined in a few days time at the Geneva Show by a new 12-cylinder. A revolutionary new car that delivers extreme performance and unprecedented power output,” said Montezemolo in a press release.
This newest Ferrari offering the chairman is speaking of could be the F620, which is the successor to the 599. Another possibility is the Ferrari F70, which will be the newest iteration of the Enzo (engine shown above). Adding to the excitement, the CEO of Ferrari, Amadeo Felisa, recently revealed that the F70 could debut as a hybrid, with a combined electric, gas power rating of over 900 hp.
Whatever the new car is, it will undoubtedly be an attention grabbing high horsepower beauty.
