Ferrari Roma V12 Test Mule Caught Going Flat Out On Track

The Italian automaker is cooking something new, and it carries 12 cylinders.

Varryx of YouTube has caught a Ferrari Roma test mule in action. The prototype, on the other hand, isn’t your typical V8-powered grand tourer. It’s thought to be powered by a V12 engine, which is visible beneath the disguised body.

The Roma test mule appears to have a significantly longer bonnet, as shown in the video above, probably to fit the 12-pot mill within. To improve cooling, the front bumper has also been changed. More importantly, the Roma V12 prototype can be seen and heard tearing up a race circuit.

So, what’s the deal? We’re not sure, but we all know Ferrari isn’t done with its V12 just yet, even while the rest of the world embraces electrification. Enrico Galliera, Ferrari’s chief communications and marketing officer, stated in November 2021 that four or five more Icona variants will be released. Like the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, as well as the newest 828-horsepower (609-kilowatt) Daytona SP3, the next Icona model will most likely be powered by a V12 engine.

Furthermore, Ferrari has not yet revealed a V12 engine that is more powerful than the 812 Competizione. Michael Leiters, Ferrari’s technology director, previously stated that a beefier V12 is already in the works.

The 812 Competizione is the Italian marque’s most powerful 12-cylinder, producing 830 horsepower (610 kW) and 510 pound-feet of torque (692 Newton-meters). The upcoming V12 Ferrari should be able to produce more than this, however the carmaker is keeping quiet about the details.

Is this our first glimpse at the replacement to the Ferrari 812? Is it possible that we’re looking at the future Icona model? Time will tell, but it’s clear that the manufacturer is working on something new. It’s a good thing it’s hauling 12 cylinders.
