F599 GTB 1 234x155

Ferrari has released details of its new 599GTB two-seater coupe, the replacement for the 575 Maranello.

The 599 GTB uses a 6.0-litre V12, an engine derived directly from the Enzo Ferrari supercar, and it develops a whopping 620bhp. The engine is fitted to an ultra-light all-aluminium chassis and body.

No specific details of its performance have been released yet, but expect its top speed to be over 200mph – it's Ferrari's most powerful V12-engined production car ever. Prices are likely to be over £160,000.

The car replaces the 575 Maranello, of which some 5700 were made.
