Ferrari is reportedly preparing a new version of its F12 coupe that will set higher standards for the carmaker’s flagship model.

Called the F12 Speciale, the new model could tip the scales as much as 200kg lighter than the regular F12berlinetta (pictured), according to the UK’s Autocar.

And a Speciale Ferrari wouldn’t be worthy of the name without a power boost as well, thus the new F12 is said to boast on extra 22kW from its 6.2 litre V12 engine.

That means a new power output of 567kW - combining with the lower weight for a power-to-weight ratio of 396kW per tonne.

The exterior will reportedly be sporting a more dramatic aero package than that of the F12, while keeping weight down in virtually every aspect of its design.

Expect lightweight panels, windows, wheels and pretty much everything else, combining with the powered-up engine for a 0-100km/h time that should easily arrive before 3.0 seconds.

The interior could be a similar story, with all but the essential elements either lightened or omitted in the name of saving weight.

Surprisingly perhaps, the F12 Speciale is not expected to be a special or limited edition, and could sit alongside the regular F12berlinetta as a ‘full’ production model.

But the Speciale might become a ‘special edition’ by default, as one of the last Ferrari models with a naturally-aspirated engine and with no hybrid electric set-up.

When quizzed on the possibility that an F12 Speciale was coming, Ferrari Australia CEO Herbert Appleroth told TMR “we don’t comment on future product - but watch this space”.

Fans could see the F12 Speciale as soon as next year’s Geneva Motor Show. Pricing and availability are yet to be revealed, but expect a figure well north of the F12berlinetta’s $690,745 if it arrives in Australia.
