Ferrari has released a new teaser image of its upcoming Enzo successor on its official Facebook page. The Italian automaker says it will release a series of images of its upcoming flagship, which remains unnamed, right up until its world debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

Ferrari isn't releasing any details at this time, simply referring to the Enzo-successor as a "special series car."

Reports suggest the Enzo successor will be powered by a hybrid drivetrain that will consist of an evolution of the 6.3-liter V12 engine found in the f12berlinetta and a Formula 1-derived Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). Together, the two will send 950 horsepower to the rear set of wheels, enabling the super car to sprint from zero to 62 mph in just three seconds and reach a top speed of 229 mph.

The KERS system will add around 330 pounds to the car, bumping the total weight up to roughly 2,820 pounds.

Called F150 internally, the car will be built around a carbon-fiber monocoque crafted by Ferrari's Formula 1 division. Its body will be made out of four different types of carbon fibers, resulting in a 27 percent increase in torsional rigidity over the Enzo.

Ferrari has confirmed that the cockpit will feature a fixed driver's seat that will be tailor-made for each buyer. The pedal box and the steering wheel will both be adjustable.

Precisely what the car will look like is not currently known but the latest images sent in by our spies reveal a long and low shape with a wide front grille. Out back, Ferrari's latest creation borrows styling cues from both the Enzo and the f12berlinetta.

Look for more details about the Prancing Horse's next supercar to emerge in the weeks leading up to its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Just 499 examples of the car will be built and each one will cost approximately €1.2 million, a figure which converts to about $1.6 million.
