Ferrari F450 Mule Conceals New 4.5-Liter V8

We don't imagine many owners of the forthcoming Ferrari F450 hitting the ice in one, but you can't blame Ferrari's engineers for testing this F450 mule and its larger V8 in this harsh environment.

According to Next Autos, this F450 was undergoing some winter testing in Sweden. While it wears the skin of the vehicle it's replacing, the venerable F430, underneath is concealed a larger 4.5-liter V8 and the twin-clutch gearbox out of the Ferrari California.

As previously reported, the new F450 should debut sometime later this year and arrive in the hands of lucky Europeans early next year.
