The F60, successor to the V8-engined F40 and F50 V12, was caught road and track testing at Ferrari's HQ in Maranello, Italy. Hidden under a mix of bodywork from the 348 and 550 is a stunning blend of Formula One-influenced technology and lines penned by Pininfarina that will ensure the carbon fibre-chassised F60 offers incredible grip and speed.

High-level exhausts point to an aerodynamic undertray such as that used on the F50, while the engine is tipped to be a 6.0-litre 650bhp V12. Mated to a sequential gearbox, it's expected to give the F60 a 3.0-second 0-60mph sprint time and 230mph top speed.


I think it looks pretty cool.

That's fast.

I think the front overhang looks funny, but otherwise it looks alright! I still like the 360 Modena styling better

Talking NOW THAT'S A GOOD-LOOKING FERRARI!!!

That's pretty sweet. My criticisms of the 360 Modena (i.e. that it breaks from traditional Ferarri design and does not look like a Ferrari but rather just a great-looking exotic - and while that's not a bad thing, I think there needs to be some sort of uniformity) do not apply to this car.

This design takes the slowly evolving Ferrari look and puts the modern touches on it for a beautiful, contemporary, but still recognizably Ferarri look.

Angry NOT THE F60!!!!

ok, enough is enough. I had a huge email argument almost a year ago (when I first saw the photo, its being passed around) with the guy who drew up with this graphic.. web designers who read this, please remove this photo from your sites or at least label it not to be an f60. The f60 is supposed to be better than the f50 and f40 by using the aerodynamic tricks associated with the 360 modena, WITHOUT that damn huge wing. Ferrari knows this, but then they realized that everyone was going to start drawing estimates of what the f60 would look like, so they encouraged people to draw sillier, less accurate images like the one above, which is little more than 20 minutes work in photoshop using a picture of a fioravanti f100 and a ferrari f50. PLEASE, this image is a fallacy... Automobile magazine has even bought into a hideously mangled caricature of a car labeled f60 with all sorts of gangly wings and odd protrustions... I promise u, the differences we will see from f50 to f60 will be similar to the ones made from f355 to 360 modena. Ferrari is out to be the best, not to release the 2003 stylistic update of the f40 design practice. Big spoilers are out too... the diablo 6.0 doesn't have one, vector is dead, the main 64 production mclaren f1s didn't have them (the GTRs, GTs, and LMs did, but that's a separate issue), please stop making ferrari chuckle by circulating this false info. I'll say that the photo is well-done, and that the author did 2 angles gives it more believability, but this is silly. the photo above is wholly unrelated to the f60, and is NO indication as to what it will look like.

actually, I saw a pic in a german car magazine about 2 months ago, but it hasn't turned up in the us yet. look for it... its looks more like a badly done fiero kit stretched over a longer chassis

There are no real pics of the Ferrari F60. If you did see one, it was probably a teaser made by Ferrari. The F60 is not supposed to come out for a very long time.

Anyone see the new C&D? They have a computer animated sketch...looks fishy to me. I think it's to throw us off.

They say that the next car, the "F60" will be offered within two years.

I don't believe it.

I hope that's not what it will look like.

No it won't! That's just a photoshopped 360! Nice try.

Talking

Who said that it will take a long time before we will see the new F60?
Do you want to see the real first prototypes of the new F60 ??
Enough with all the fake computerimages !

I have this info from a friend who visited Maranello last month.Look at www.motorcar-journal.com.

At this moment there are two proto's of the car. A black one which testing the airodynamics and cooling parts, and a red one testing the engine. He had seen the red one with testchief Dario Benuzzi at the wheel !!

the car is a mixture of an 348 front with an 355 tailend. the car is longer and a lot wider than an normal 348 or 355. With an V12 engine and a horric sound. the car will be based on the last F360. ( figures 650 hp and 0-100 in 3,2 sec).

production will start in early 2003.

(sorry for the writing mistakes)

I sincerely hope you're joking, and you don't actually believe that. Those pics have been around for quite some time, but I haven't yet heard what they are. At first I heard it was Ferrari testing the F60 engine, and disguising it with old body panels. However, more recently I've heard (from good sources) that it was actually the Porsche Carrera GT under the Ferrari skin! They wanted to keep it completely under wrap.

Whatever that is testing for, it's not actually the F60.
