replacement to the 456

Has anyone heard of a new car coming from Ferrari that will replace the 456? I heard something like 460? I'm looking for pictures. If you have some can you post a link to them or link them to this site.

I havent heard anything but they should be due for a replacement soon. They like to update their cars every 5 years or so and its been about 3 since the 456M. On the other hand, they dont design 2+2 cars as often, no offense or anything but look how long people had to live with the 400/412, ugggg thank god i was only a little kid.

I know what you mean

I know exactly what you mean. The 456M was not a huge change from the 456 (imo) but I did see photos of what the future 460 is suppose to look like. However, I cannot find them now. If the actual car is anything like the photo then the 456 will still be very similar in body style to the existing 456.

i don't think thats it

I could be wrong but I think they are wrong. That looks almost like a Maranello and it looks just like the spy pictures of the 575.

Now, it's definitly NOT the 575M. The wheelbase and the nose is way too long!!!!

I don't know. It's a bit too long for an AM. Personally, I think it's too long for a Ferrari. But these are just test mules, so...

Probably not. I think this is just a long 550 used to test the technology of the 460. If you look good, you can see the similarities.
