Believed to be the official successor to the legendary Ferrari Enzo, the codenamed Ferrari F70 supercar (pictured top), has been caught on video while conducting a series of test runs around its hometown of Maranello, in Italy.

Details on the Ferrari F70 are scarce, but the car is said to feature a 6.3-litre V-12 hybrid drivetrain that will take advantage of Ferrari's HY-KERS (Hybrid-Kinetic Energy Recovery System) technology.

Performance figures for the new super Ferrari are equally sketchy, although reports suggest the V12 engine will be tuned to deliver upwards of 597kW, which when combined with a suggested 89kW electric motor, could see the car's total output reach 686kW.

The F70 is said to weigh 1157kg, which should help the car sprint from 0-100km/h in less than 2.5 seconds - faster than the Bugatti Veyron.

Originally thought to be designed by Pininfarina, the new Ferrari has been designed in-house by Flavio Manzoni who landed at Ferrari in 2010 after a stint at Volkswagen where he designed the Volkswagen Golf MkVI.
