We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: These days, it’s pretty much impossible to keep a highly-anticipated car’s design completely under wraps until the car’s debut. The Ferrari F12berlinetta snuck out before it was scheduled to appear, and now it seems we may be getting an early look at the next Ferrari supercar—the Enzo’s replacement, the Italian Jesus Supercar.

The picture comes to us via China’s Weibo microblogging platform (read: Chinese Twitter, but with infinitely more government censors) from a presentation in Valencia, Spain—likely around the time of the final installment of the 2013 Formula One series. This wasn’t the actual top-secret reveal for the possibly named F70‘s potential millionaire buyers, but appears to be some sort of board meeting, investor presentation, or business-related conference—it clearly takes place in a large auditorium, and the text below the picture reads “A Client-Focused Approach With The Most Complete Range Ever,” suggesting this presentation is aimed at the business-minded, not enthusiasts.

According to the gurus at FerrariChat, actual buyer previews aren’t expected to begin until February or March of 2013—as of now, the car is reportedly only about 90 percent finished. Details in the picture are few, but there does seem to be an FXX-like air intake just above the Ferrari badge (possibly to cool the HY-KERS system), and a slightly Enzo-like hood above a single gaping maw up front. Still now official word on power, weight or power-to-weight; a combined V12/electric horsepower figure just north of 900 ponies seems all but assured, but we believe the reports of a curb weight around 2,200 pounds are greatly exaggerated. We’re guessing it’ll weigh in around 2,800 pounds dry and just over 3,000 with all the fluids and a full tank of race juice. [via FerrariChat]

    It looks like a viper-vette... Definitely aimed toward American money.
