The Italian supercar manufacturer will maintain its current four-vehicle line-up – 458, 599, 612 and California – with the Enzo to sit above the range as the halo car.

Hitting the road first will be the 458 Spider convertible, followed by the all-new 612 Scaglietti replacement (codenamed F151). Both will be available from next year, with rumours suggesting the four-seater 612 could be offered as the brand’s first ever hybrid.

The new Enzo will storm onto the scene in 2012, likely to be powered by either a direct-injection twin-turbo V6 or V8 engine and expected to feature “active aerodynamics” where the car emits air around the body to make airflow hitting the car more slippery and seamless.

The brand new 599 GTB Fiorano (codenamed F152) is also due in 2012.

The California will be facelifted in 2013 and joined by a high performance version of the 458, most likely the 458 Scuderia.

Ferrari says no new vehicles outside the current range will be added before 2013 and highlighted its determination to maintain the differentiation between its 612 and California grand tourers and its 458 and 599 supercars.
