The facelift for Ferrari’s V12 grand tourer, the F12 Berlinetta, has been spotted testing in Europe for the first time. The mid-life facelift, or ‘Modificato’ in Ferrari’s terminology, looks near identical to the current model except for a few tweaks in the rear section.
The F12 M, as it is being called tentatively, sported sparse camouflage at the rear, indicating that the new model might feature a new rear fascia. As of now Ferrari seems to have left the front of the car untouched, though we might see a few changes as the testing advances. Mechanically, we can expect Ferrari to retune the 6.3-litre V12 engine to extract more power out of it. The current F12 Berlinetta produces 731bhp; Ferrari might bump this figure up to 750bhp to surpass the Aventador LP 750-4 Super Veloce’s power figures.
The Ferrari F12 M is expected to be unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, before going on sale in 2017. Besides the Aventador, the F12 also competes with other big tourers like the Aston Martin Vanquish and the Bentley Continental GT.
