This test-mule Ferrari F430 is based on the next generation F series. So this might look like any F430 at first, but looking at the details, this prancing horse has bigger air intakes, wide central exhaust under the rear license plate and modified wheel cases on the front. Very likely it will have a wider track and longer wheelbase. Sticker on the side window shows a codename “F142″.Rumor is that the new model will be fitted with a 4.5L V8 engine and the car will be named F450. Also the body design will change though the overall design language should stay similar to the current F430.
The Ferrari F142 will be officially revealed later this year at the Frankfort Auto Show, in coupe and spider (convertible) form. There will be also a high-performance Scuderia edition. From there, we could a lot more spy shots of the car.
