A replacement for Ferrari's retired hero car, the Enzo, will reportedly hit the scene late next year.

According to industry paper Automotive News, the Enzo's successor will draw power from a brand-new V12 engine, while focusing on the lightweight construction and fuel-saving technologies that Ferrari plans to extend to its full line-up.

The report follows earlier rumours that the new model will weigh "significantly" less than the 1360kg Enzo, utilising a smaller tub, extensive carbon fibre use and and a limited-spec interior.

Whether the new hero - known internally as the F70 - will remain a limited-edition offering is unclear. Only 399 Enzo supercars were built, and only 349 F50s were produced.

Ferrari has previously hinted at a 2012 arrival for the Enzo's replacement, along with a replacement for the 599 and an updated California.
