A replacement for Ferrari’s California roadster has been spied testing near the company’s Maranello headquarters.

The mule pictured offers little insight into the new model’s styling though, largely hiding beneath the sheetmetal of the current California.

However, several visible detail changes support earlier reports of a new twin-turbo V8 drivetrain, which is expected to exceed the current model’s 365kW while delivering emissions and efficiency improvements over the current 4.3 litre naturally aspirated V8.

These detail changes include enlarged ducts in the front bumper - likely to feed air to twin intercoolers - and cobbled-up 458 model headlights that likely provide clearance for the intercoolers’ associated ducting.

At the rear, a new horizontally-stacked quad outlet exhaust system is visible, compared with the current model’s vertical arrangement.

Also expected is a version of Ferrari’s new KERS hybrid system, which will see production first in the upcoming Enzo-replacing flagship model.

Ferrari is yet to confirm details, but the new model is expected to make greater use of aluminium and composite materials in its construction to significantly reduce the current model’s 1735kg kerb weight.

The California’s relatively heavy folding hardtop is expected to remain however.

A more retro-themed exterior design is expected for the new production model, with styling duties being shared between Ferrari’s in-house Centro Stile studio and Pininfarina.

The as-yet unnamed model is expected to be revealed in the latter half of 2014, before going on sale internationally as a 2015 model.
