Some gent on a business trip, who was spending time at Germany's N burgring, caught some shots of carmakers' test cars passing, including several BMWs, Mercs and Porsches. Most were current or upcoming models, on which engineers were collecting performance data. One, however, was Ferrari's Pininfarina-designed 575 Maranello replacement, known to some as the 600, or Compact Coupe. To others, it's the Imola. Built as a variant of the 612 Scaglietti, the new coupe will have a 6.0-liter V12 rumored to produce 600hp, positioned in a front-mid-engine layout and linked to a clutchless manual tranny. Expect to see it in Geneva next year. [Thanks to Donovan for the tip.] [Update: Also check out the red Mazdaspeed3, loaded down with data sensors and other electrical crap.]
