Could this new LaFerrari-bodied test mule be hiding a turbocharged V12?
It sounds like it could be
Recently, Ferrari has been testing a very suspicious-looking LaFerrari test mule and this latest video suggests what's underneath may be powered by a turbocharged V12.
We know the Italian brand is looking to launch a new 'Icona Series' supercar, but that is rumoured to be powered by the 812 Competizione's naturally aspirated V12 – so it can't be that. If this is a turbocharged V12 though, then it could be a mule for the company’s Le Mans race car.
The new Icona Series supercar – set to debut this November – will be powered by a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12. This engine, which is the same seen in the 812, produces 830hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
In terms of styling, the new Icona supercar is said to replicate the design of the iconic 330 P4 race cars from the 1960s – but we will have to wait to see that.
