Ferrari has already introduced a handful of new models, but they’re not slowing down as there’s even more on the horizon.
During the company’s second quarter earnings presentation, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri said two new models will be introduced in Maranello next month.
Camilleri didn’t go into specifics, but previous reports have suggested one of the cars could be the 812 Superfast Spider. That remains unconfirmed, but several members of the Ferrari Chat forum have previously said they received invitations to the unveiling early next month.
Like the coupe, the 812 Superfast Spider is slated to have a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 789 hp (588 kW / 800 PS) and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque. It should be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. Official details will likely be released next month, but the coupe can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).
The other model is more mysterious, but it could be the F8 Spider. If that’s the case, we can expect a stylish roadster with a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine that produces 710 hp (530 kW / 720 PS) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. Despite being less powerful than the 812 Superfast, the F8 Tributo also rockets from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).
Later this year, Ferrari will introduce one more model. Little is known about it, but the company’s marketing boss has previously suggested it will compete in a “new segment.” Since the Purosangue crossover is still a ways off, the mysterious model could be an entry-level sports car. Rumors of a modern-day Dino have been circulating for awhile and Ferrari confirmed plans for a V6 engine family last year.
