The automotive world eagerly awaits the debut of Ferrari’s highest-revving production model, known internally as the F167. Though its official name remains undisclosed, a recent spy pic captured by Dutch photographer Derek Cornelissen offers a tantalizing look of Ferrari’s next high-revving exotic.

Highlighted in the photograph is a fully digital instrument cluster featuring a rev counter reaching an astonishing 10 x 1,000 revolutions per minute, with the ’10’ marked in red, hinting at a redline of 10,000 revolutions per minute. How does the F167 compare to its predecessor, the 812 Superfast, and its special edition, the 812 Competizione? In essence, it surpasses both in performance, boasting a higher redline and output.

While the 812 Superfast is limited to 8,900 revolutions per minute, and the 812 Competizione extends to 9,500 rpm, the F167 pushes the boundaries further, promising an exhilarating driving experience with its higher rev limit.

With Ferrari ceasing new orders for the 812 series in February 2022, anticipation mounts for the F167’s debut at the Miami GP in just over a week. According to Ferrari expert Marcel Massini, the F167 is set to be unleashed on May 2, with attendees of the Cavalcade International USA 2024 eagerly anticipating the grand tourer’s reveal, especially given its rumored output of over 800 metric horsepower.

Speculations suggest the F167 will raise Ferrari’s performance pedigree, boasting around 850 cavalli vapore, a notable increase from the 812 Superfast’s output of 819 horsepower. Additionally, with features like all-wheel steering and the latest iteration of Side Slip Control, the F167 is poised to deliver a thrilling driving experience, setting new benchmarks for Ferrari’s lineup.

While rumors of a limited-run manual transmission variant persist, Ferrari’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance and engineering excellence underscores the F167’s significance as a testament to the brand’s legacy of innovation and precision craftsmanship. As one of the final purely internal combustion V12s from Ferrari, the F167 represents a celebration of the marque’s heritage amidst evolving automotive trends and regulations.
