Ferrari is working on a hotter version of its F12 and a spy video has surfaced online showing us the car.

The video allows us to see a camouflaged version of the car driving around the streets of Maranello, Italy, though more importantly it lets us listen to how that massive V12 will sound. The picture seen above reportedly shows the back end of the new F12.

The car, which will likely be called the F12 Speciale or F12 GTO, will go through a massive weight loss that could be up to 400 pounds, while the 6.3-liter V12 will be tuned to crank out 760 horsepower.

Jumping from 0 to 60 mph will take this car less than three seconds, while top speed will probably be capped at 211 mph. Rear-wheel steering is rumored to also help the new Ferrari handle.

This car is expected to be the very last non-turbo, non-hybrid Ferrari supercar, which will make it very desirable among collectors, especially considering it will only have a limited production run. There is a possibility though that it will come with a HY-KERS system like that found in the LaFerrari.

Next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March will likely play host to the car’s debut.
