Ferrari F149 confirmed
Ferrari will reveal its 'F149' in Paris in October


Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo surprised both the audience and the Ferrari PR department at the Geneva press conference by announcing Ferrari will reveal  their new front-engined V8 GT car (known internally as the F149) at this yearís Paris motor show in October.

Those expecting an entry level Ferrari will be disappointed to hear the new F149 GT car will be priced above the basic F430 (priced at £138,500 here in the UK) when it goes on sale in 2009. Pervious reports that this car was to be a new Dino type Ferrari, priced sub £100,000, have proved to be very wide of the mark.

Ferrari are still being cagey with the details but we do know the car will be a brand new design and will feature versatile architecture, which is taken to mean a choice of either 2+2 or 2 seat plus a luggage bench inside the cabin. Expect to see a conventional steel roof as standard, with either a glass or folding roof as an option.

Engine is expected to be a revised version of the F430ís 4.3litre V8 with slightly more power thanks to new direct injection technology and new throttle bodies which should deliver lower CO2 emissions as well. This will be linked to the new gearbox that could be the DCT gearbox we know Ferrari have been working on.

Itís exciting times for Ferrari, with this new model Ferrari are hoping to gain a new set of customers who have always been put off by the mid-engined layout of itís V8 models up to now.

Ferrari is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the iconic Testarossa to launch an exclusive supercar, the 712 Maiale Volante, with just 712 examples being built, the first vehicles are due for delivery in July Ď09.

First allocation rights were offered to previous owners of the original Testarossa and itís subsequent versions, and even with the global economic downturn taking itís toll, pre-orders have been impressive with over 100 already spoken for, with many more slots expected to be taken once the car has been officially revealed in full.

The 712MV features a 7 Liter V12 developing 704 prancing horses, and a beautifully crafted combination of veloce-pollo alcantara and carbon-fiber interior, underscored by a silver ďlimited seriesĒ plaque with each car numbered as part of the exclusive XXV Anniversario commemoration.

The Maiale Volante is available in a choice of two new colours as part of the Grassodivacca Scaglietti Personalisation Programme: Rosso Sciocco or Bianco Asino, aimed at Ferrariís most passionate, loyal customers who demand the unique combination of exclusivity and the remarkable driving experience that only Ferrari can offer.

I love some of the terms:

Maiale Volante= flying pig
veloce-pollo alcantara = fast chicken alcantara
Grassodivacca Scaglietti Personalisation Programme= Cow fat Scaglietti Personalisation Programme
Rosso Sciocco or Bianco Asino= Silly Red or donkey white.


That said, it all sounds legit to me.   :?
