Ferrari to reveal California-based 149M project on February 12

We have seen the Ferrari California prototypes testing for some time now. The prototypes have been wearing current generation body with minor modifications, with the biggest update reportedly under the bonnet.

Ferrari is now teasing the reveal of its “149M Project” on February 12, that has clearly something to do with the California, which has a codename F149. The “M” here means modified and is an evolution of the California, similar to the 550 Maranello, which was upgraded and received the 575M Maranello moniker.

While nothing is official the naturally-aspirated V8 is reportedly replaced with a tuned version of the 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 found in the Maserati Quattroporte producing around 550bhp. The car was first spotted last summer and the engine was clearly a turbo.

The new updated exterior is most likely influenced by the F12 Berlinetta, along with modified interior. The retractable hardtop will continue to be part of the formula.
