Ferrari's CEO has confirmed the Prancing Horse will reveal its first series production hybrid later this month, during the company's first-quarter financial call.

First reported by Motor1, Louis Camilleri said: "It will be a top-of-the-line hybrid with supercar performance and a true beauty".

The hybrid supercar is set to slot above the current 812 Superfast, serving as the brand's new flagship of the core range – excluding halo products like the LaFerrari and hardcore track specials.

Camilleri also noted that the new model "is not a 488 replacement per se", adding that it would have new human-machine interface technology.

Spy photos published overseas have shown the development mule for the new model being based on the Ferrari 488, though with obvious modifications to the sheetmetal.

Deliveries are expected to begin next year, with the electric-assisted powertrain projected to offer more than the 488 Pista's 530kW.

Camilleri also announced that Maserati wouldn't be renewing its engine supply partnership with Ferrari, indicating the final Maserati/Ferrari engine would arrive in 2021 or 2022.

This leaves a cloud of doubt over the Trident marque's powertrain future – could the wider FCA group supply powertrains to upcoming Maserati models? Or will a new partnership be formed specifically with Alfa Romeo?

Time will tell, so stay tuned to CarAdvice for all the latest.
