First images of the actual car, probably, missing the bumpers though.
it seems the car will be at Frankfurt as previewed.

at the moment it seems like a patchwork, with the roof from a Zonda, the doors from the 599, and the mirrors from the 360.
too early to say.

The door and rear fender look like they could be real parts of the new car....I suppose the roof too.

I suspect this is not that close to the real design...but it isn't bad in it's shape.

reminds me of that concept car that was touted as NSX replacement from a couple of years back.....

Is this meant to be the next F430?

I think it does look like a "next Ferrari". Its obviously a aero-driven design evolution, much like Enzo was....

Spy Shots: Ferrari F450 mule spotted fresh off the truck

The long lenses over at Team Lehmann have just uncovered what looks to be the Ferrari F450, successor to the Italian marque's already legendary F430.

While just a prototype and not caught with full production bodywork, the mule does give us our best look yet at the coming V8 supercar, and while it looks evolutionary, the folks at AutoExpress also have a rendering that forecasts a markedly different Mille Chili/Enzo-esque appearance for the mid-engined coupe.

The F450 is widely expected to ring in with a larger 4.5-liter eight-cylinder packing upwards of 500 horsepower (hence its name), and the car is pegged to get the stonking seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox first offered in the company's California folding hardtop model, and AutoExpress figures it may even be the first production Ferrari to employ the company's Kenetic Energy Recovery System used in its F1 cars. The system takes advantage of energy stored under braking and translates it into extra power.

While Modena has yet to confirm when the car will make its debut, AE reckons it is due for the Frankfurt Motor Show this Fall. If the F450 follows company protocol, European sales will follow shortly thereafter, with U.S. sales commencing sometime in calendar 2010.

Road car with the KERS? Why don't they just make a hover craft that shoots lasers?

because it isn't true.
KERS (aka efficientdynamics by BMW, it wouldn't be a need for speed-ish press-to-go-faster thinghy) is far from production. really far.
Frankfurt should be the right date for the unveiling, if so, expect a bunch of new and better spy shots to emerge during summer (as it happened with the California last year).

Then it would be a Lotus Elise. Ferrari doesn't need to go there.

if they weren't spy shots you would have seen a lot of images from Italy, first of all, then, if this aren't soy shots because they are too much, what about the Panamera?!

I don't know, what's true to some may not be true to others. The firts pics shown have good quality, although in others the photographer seems to be in a more hidden place... But i can only speculate...
