UPDATE, 17 June 2021: Ferrari has announced a June 24 reveal date for its new "revolutionary sports car", confirming the rumoured date reported yesterday.
A teaser image has been released alongside the announcement. Our original story continues unchanged below.
16 June 2021: Ferrari's new 'baby supercar' has been spotted driving on the roads around Maranello, Italy ahead of its expected release later this month.
The new Ferrari model is widely reported to have a hybrid V6 powertrain – rumoured to be a derivative of the engine found in the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio – prompting some rumours to suggest the model will see the resurrection of the Dino badge.
An email sent to customers of the brand suggests the new Ferrari will be launched this month, with insiders pointing to a global online reveal on 24 June 2021.
"Ferrari powers into June with exciting news – the launch of a new sports car, of the marque’s fashion collection, and the opening of the Cavallino restaurant," the email read. "Each reflects the passion and excellence of the Prancing Horse."
In February 2021, overseas media reported the new hybrid model – codenamed F171 – will come with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine producing 440kW, with an electric motor boosting that figure to 522kW.
Spy videographer channel Varryx spotted the heavily-camouflaged Ferrari prototype testing on the roads around the company's headquarters, ahead of its expected reveal later this month.
