Ferrari F450 spied with no camo!
The first spy-photos of the real prototype of the forthcoming Ferrari F450 have emerged – and the car photographed doesn’t wear an inch of disguise! While some of the body pieces are missing on this prototype, a large portion of the production sheet metal is clearly visible!
Boasting over 500hp, the F450 is rumored to have a higher power output than the 520-hp F430 Scuderia. Ferrari will use the same double-clutch gearbox from the California for the F450 to double-up with the envisaged 4.5-liter V8. How the global financial difficulty has affected the scarlet marque will be seen in the F450 through possible technologies like a road car version of KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems).
Ferrari has apparently code-named the car F142 and it is expected to make its first public showing at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009. Deliveries would then commence just over a year from now.
