Ferrari F12 GTO leaks out early

A couple of images allegedly showing the Ferrari F12 GTO have popped up online. The pics are believed to be screenshots from a private configurator available exclusively to Ferrari owners who get to play around and build the model to their liking. The name of the car has not been confirmed at the moment of writing, but given its 250 GTO influences, chances are the Maranello-based company has indeed decided to bring back the iconic “GTO” moniker as a throwback to the rare and highly appraised classic car.

Technical specifications are not available at this point, but it is believed the 6.3-liter V12 normally aspirated engine is going to be upgraded from 740 PS to 800 PS and this will be possible by borrowing the LaFerrari’s HY-KERS system. Despite the added hardware, the Ferrari F12 GTO will reportedly lose as much as 100 kg which means that it will be substantially quicker than the current F12 Berlinetta.

Word on the street says a proper reveal is scheduled for mid-September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with deliveries to begin in the second quarter of 2016. We don’t know how much it will cost, but sources close to Ferrari state only 650 units will ever be made.
