The car you see here is the future Ferrari which will be unveiled at the next Paris Motor Show. On the menu: 2+2 architecture, front engine and £100,000.

This is the company serious attempt to take on Aston Martin in the hundred grand segment. Like Aston Martin models, the Ferrari will feature a front engine with a 2+2 interior architecture. Details remain scarce but Ferrari engineers might use the V8 engine seen in the F430; however the engine might feature a direct-injection system and be detuned to 450bhp.

The biggest visual design element will be without a doubt the hatchback in order to boot roominess and practicality. The car is expected to be 20in shorter that the 612 Scaglietti.
