If you can’t wait for it to be officially unveiled, there’s good news: the Ferrari LaFerrari hypercar successor has been spotted.

And we have the exciting, fresh footage.

The LaFerrari hypercar successor is rumored to be the most powerful, fastest Ferrari yet.

Two examples of the successor to the Ferrari LaFerrari hypercar were spotted in the prancing horse’s Cavallino factory in Maranello, Northern Italy.

It’s expected that the successor to the LaFerrari successor will be revealed this year.

The LaFerrari is so prestigious it’s even been used in an attempt to sell real estate.

Content creator, Varryx, waited outside the Maranello gates to see what mysterious models he could spot.

And he wasn’t disappointed, capturing two different versions of the forthcoming Ferrari hypercar, codenamed F250.

One, aptly enough, was clad in camouflage to hide its full aesthetics and body parts.

Aside from a lowered rear wing, it appears much unchanged from shots captured last year.

In another apparent attempt to be lowkey, the second was blue and covered in black cladding.

15 new Ferrari models are being teased and drip-fed to enthusiasts between 2022 and 2026 – but we have little more information than that.

What we do know, is that the Ferrari F250 is a new flagship for the luxe brand.

The stunning hypercar in question will be the next step in LaFerrari’s hybrid concept.

It will be the prancing horse’s first flagship to use plug-in hybrid power, given away by yellow and black stickers on test cars.

A blue prototype appears later in the footage, sporting what Varryx believes is the ‘final body’ going to production.

A switched-up vehicle registration from the earlier test car and a surprising lack of a large rear wing (which could be retracted) can be seen through the black cladding.

The rear wing is particularly important for the aerodynamics of this and other high-speed cars.

The F250 is expected to exceed LaFerrari’s 350km/h top speed.

However, it’s thought that differing aerodynamic packages could be on offer for model grades.

It may be that it had just been removed for the specific test being carried out or has simply been downsized.

In 2023 Ferrari offered its first road car with a fixed rear wing since the 2002 Ferrari Enzo, the SF90 XX.

So what do these sightings actually confirm? A large section of bodywork behind the front wheels, a scalloped front door, and two cooling ducts behind the driver’s door.

At the rear, taillights from the Ferrari 296 are visible, alongside a pair of central exhaust pipes and oversized rear diffusers.

The LaFerrari provided the inspiration for the F250 hypercar.

Its 588kW V12 teamed with a 110kW electric motor means a total output of 708kW and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Although, as the most powerful road Ferrari, the 2023 SF90 XX’s V8 powertrain is one possibility for the F250.

It delivers 758kW using three electric motors and a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, but could reach ‘only’ 320 km/h (199 mph).

Alternatively, it could use elements of the twin-turbocharged V6 powertrain of the 296GTB hybrid.

This is the engine used in the 2023 Le Mans-winning Ferrari 499P race car.

Of note is that this would make the F250 the first flagship Ferrari not to use a V12 since the V8-powered F40 in 1987.

An aspirational flagship model is announced roughly every decade.

Previous models included LaFerrari, the 2002 Enzo, the F50 in 1995, 288 GTO in 1984 and 1948 Ferrari 166 Inter.
