Ferrari F620 GT set for Geneva - with 710hp

Bye-bye 599: Maranello's new flagship GT is called the F620 - and it should pack quite a punch

Ferrari will unveil its 710hp successor to the 599GTB Fiorano at the Geneva motor show in March, according to German mag Auto Bild.

According to our German colleagues (whoserendering and spy-shot story you can see here), the new car's internal codename is F152, but it will be christened the F620 when it comes to market.

As well as front-end styling that owes a great deal to the Ferrari FF, the F620 will use the same 6.3-litre V12, albeit with an extra 90hp. It won't get the four-wheel-drive system from the FF, however, Ferrari perhaps wisely sticking to a more purist-friendly rear-wheel drive set-up for its flagship GT. (Much as we predicted lastspring, but we don't like to brag...)

The transmission of that power, meanwhile, will be via a version of the same seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox used in the 458 Italia.
