You wait for one new 700hp+ Ferrari and then two come along (almost) at once.

Hot on the heels of the reveal last week of the F12 Berlinetta, the most powerful and high-performance road-going Ferrari ever, comes news of the unveiling of, er, the most powerful and high-performance road-going Ferrari ever.

The long-awaited Enzo replacement will be revealed to potential customers at the end of the year, according to reports quoting Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo.

Ferrari always waits until it has got a year’s worth of production on its order books before new cars are revealed to the general public, which means we’ll see it at either the Detroit motor show in January 2013 or at Geneva a couple of months later, depending on how excited those potential customers get. Click here to see how much your Ferrari car insurance will be.The fastest Ferrari ever, until the next one.

The Ferrari boss gave hints that it would be pushing on the door of affordable. “We want to surprise people not just in terms of price but also with the car itself,” he told Automotive News Europe at the Geneva show.

Expected to use a mid-mounted V12 in a carbon-fibre chassis, it’s not likely to use the Enzo name this time round.

Until it arrives however, the newly unveiled F12 can shake its G-stringed booty in the limelight without fear of being top trumped. With an F1-matching 730bhp from the 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12, the Pininfarina designed car can reach 62mph in 3.1 seconds, beating the 458 by three tenths. Ferrari claims it’s the firm’s most aerodynamically efficient car too, thanks to innovations like active brake cooling, which opens vanes to the cooling ducts only at high operating temperatures.

Production of the car starts in September, with right hand drive cars rolling out of the factory three months after that. The Italian price has been set at 270,000 Euros, with Ferrari UK estimating we’ll pay between £240,000-£250,000. High Net Worth Ferrari car insurance is available for these cars.
