Whatever this mystery Ferrari is, its front end is a significant enough departure from the vanilla 488 to suggest it’s a superior performance model, but there’s no concrete information on what the car in the photo is called just yet. All we know is this image has been going around, and it’s conveniently timed with those 488 GTO rumors.

According to the rumors from last week, this car was shown at a private event and is said to feature the “most powerful” Ferrari V8 ever and may be called the “special sport series” instead of GTO.

Here’s a normal 488 for comparison:

About time Ferrari to hop back on top with a mid-engine turbo screamer! Ever since the MP4-12C there has been little reason to buy a mid engine Ferrari. I really hope this puts them back on top in the road department since they can’t get their shit together in F1.
