Ferrari’s CEO Amedeo Felisa has given away that the 599′s replacement (codenamed F152) will have at least 515 kW of power. Which makes it more powerful than the recently launched Lamborghini Aventador.

Speaking to Car and Driver, Mr Felisa said the successor to the 599 will be built mostly from aluminium alloys and remain a front-engine rear-wheel drive setup.

We’ll have more than 700 horsepower, but it’s not because of the Aventador.” Mr Felisa told Car and Driver.

It’s not a far cry from the current Ferrari 599, which already makes 456kW in its standard form and an impressive 500kW in GTO configuration.

Do you think it matters if the 599′s replacement has a little more power than the Lamborghini Aventador? Do buyers still care that much about power when the figures are already so high? Would you be persuaded out of a Lamborghini and into a Ferrari (or vice-versa) for the sake of a few more kW?

CarAdvice is heading to Shanghai soon to drive and review the all-new Lamborghini Aventador, so check back soon for a full review of the latest Lambo.

    I don’t think that they are directly comparable, and in any case if you can afford one you could probably afford to get one of each.

    I don’t think that it would sway me either way per se. I think most people, given the choice, would probably buy the brand or car design they prefer. I’d go the Aventador myself. Besides, it’s not as if either is underpowered…

    Aventador would still be my pick anyday

    They really need to sort out the styling. The current model looked utterly average on launch and hasn’t gotten any better in the mean time. Ditto dimensions. If chevy can pump out a compact front engine super sports, there is no reason Ferrari can’t.

    Probably wouldnt make much difference to a potential customer. These cars are statements of style and wealth. So whichever makes looks better and sounds better!

    I’ll take the Ferrari. Because I can actually used this front engined GT Ferrari everyday.
