The surprise appears to have been spoiled for Ferrari, with a European office patent leak revealing what could be the next celebratory model as part of its 70th anniversary celebrations.

Based on the limited-production LaFerrari hybrid hypercar, the new mode represents a major stylistic departure from Ferrari’s current range, ditching the usual stepped headlights and circular tail lights for a more minimalist look.

LaFerrari’s aggressive aero package remains in place, restyled to further accentuate the anniversary model’s heavily sculpted body sides, with front and rear buttresses channeling air into and away from the body while providing a visual anchor point for the glass-look canopy.

Obvious similarities exist between the patent office images and earlier, but ultimately rejected, design proposals for LaFerrari displayed at Museo Ferrari in Maranello under that car’s F150 working title.

The car itself is tipped to be a one-off project built by Ferrari’s Special Projects division, similar to previous bespoke builds including the F12 TdF-based SP275 RW, and Eric Clapton’s SP12 EC, spun from the underpinnings the 458 Italia.

Mechanically the as-yet unnamed special project is expected to keep LaFerrari’s 588kW 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 and 120kW electric system for a combined 108kW and 900Nm with a screaming 9000rpm redline.
