    Autobild reports:

    - Keep V12 6.3L
    - Definitely no Turbo
    - Design: more Dynamism, more racetrack flair, more sports car genes
    - Smaller dimensions and lighter

      Great decision to keep the V12. As V10s and V12s are replaced by turbo charged V6s and V8, the appeal of the roar and smoothness of V12s will only go up.

        I will always pick Porsche over Ferrari any day or night but this is nice.

          Can they add a turbo for the sake of overkill?

          I hope they don't resort to quad rear lights. It's fine on the Lusso, but I'd like it to be properly different than the Lusso.

          In Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ [NYSE:FCAU] five-year strategy announcement for Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] made in May 2014, it was confirmed the Italian maker of some of the finest supercars on the planet would give its cars a lifespan of about eight years, with a significant update—Modificato in Ferrari-speak—around the middle.

          We saw this first with the arrival of the California T in 2014, the 488 GTB in 2015, and the GTC4 Lusso in 2016. In 2017, we’ll see the updated version of the F12 Berlinetta, a prototype for which has just been caught on camera by YouTube user 356Daly.

          It’s not clear what Ferrari has in store for the updated F12 Berlinetta, known to insiders as the F12 M. It’s likely the car will simply adopt some of the upgrades added to the limited edition F12 tdf that was launched in 2015. Key among those upgrades was a boost in power, a four-wheel-steering system, and improved aerodynamics.

          The F12 Berlinetta’s 6.3-liter V-12 currently delivers 731 horsepower. We’re not expecting the 770 hp of the F12 tdf but something exceeding the 739 hp of Lamborghini’s bonkers Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce seems likely. Ferrari will eventually add hybrid technology to its V-12 models but we’re not expecting this until the next-generation models arrive at the end of the decade.

          Look for the F12 M power boost to be joined by tweaks made to the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. These will likely match the shorter gear ratios of the F12 tdf designed to deliver 30 percent faster upshifts and 40 percent faster downshifts. Also borrowed from the limited edition F12 variant should be the aforementioned four-wheel-steering system, which Ferrari calls the Virtual Short Wheelbase. The system improves both cornering ability and stability at high speeds.

          In the interior, look for a much-improved infotainment system, including possibly the addition of the large tablet-like screen that debuted in the GTC4 Lusso.

          Ferrari claims the F12 Berlinetta has a 0-60 mph time of 3.1 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 8.5 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 211 mph. We’d expect better claims for the F12 M.

          The world debut of the F12 M should take place during next March’s 2017 Geneva auto show. The car should arrive in showrooms later in the year, as a 2018 model.

            Our spy photographers have spotted Ferrari's followup to its F12 Berlinetta. Although technically a mid-cycle refresh, the F12's update will be fairly substantial.

            Ferrari is expected to inject the standard F12 Berlinetta with tech from the range-topping F12 Tour De France. That should mean an updated front-mounted V12 with around 770 horsepower. The new F12 could also adopt the TDF's four-wheel steering system.

            It's also possible that Ferrari could add a second engine option to the F12 range, as it did with the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T. If Ferrari does decide to go the F12 T route, that model would use a version of the company's 3.9L turbocharged V8 with at least 610 horsepower on tap.

            The F12's mid-cycle update should also include styling tweaks both inside and out, but heavy camouflage still blocks our view of the car's new body work.

            Look for the updated Ferrari F12 to make its global debut early next year at the Geneva Motor Show.

              Sorry just realized this thread should be split up into two:
              1) MY2021 F12 (the correct title for the thread with the render.
              2) MY2018 F12 M (with the spy shots)

              Info about the F12 M:
              - LED lights
              - Minor hp bump by 20hp
              - interior upgrades
              - possible new steering wheel with LCD screen

                I think F12M will last at least four years to MY2021. And then there will be a F12M's successor in 2022.

                      Yep. A V12 in the front with the rear wheels driven: always and always the best design!!

                        A little bit of new info:
                        The MY2018 F12 M will get at least 30 more hp. Possibly 40hp.
                        Changes to the car are quite comprehensive. Much more sporty and easily recognizable as a different evolution from an F12. The difference between the F12 and the F12 tdf is not nearly as big as the difference between the F12 and the F12 M.
