After launching five new models – the F8 Spider, 812 GTS, the Roma, the SF90 Stradale and the F8 Tributo – last year, it seems this year would be a slightly quieter one for Ferrari…or is it?

Two years ago, we shared news on what looks like a Ferrari 488 test mule in Fiorano, pulling away in complete silence – fueling further anticipation on the V6 hybrid powerplant Ferrari confirmed in 2018 it would develop. It would be the first time Ferrari has introduced a V6 engine since the 1970s.

Well it seems the same car has resurfaced and was spied making its rounds at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track once again. You’ve seen the hybrid bit of the prototype in our previous article, this time the test mule displayed its V6 qualities, based on the noise emitted at least.

Word is that the new Ferrari could be called the Dino – reviving the moniker from the late 60s, early 70s model named after Enzo Ferrari’s son. Foreign reports have also claimed that the new V6 engine could be derived from Alfa Romeo’s 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 fitted into the Giulia Quadrifoglio; only time will tell.

Recently, Ferrari announced that its factories in Modena and Maranello are gradually returning to full production with the Monza SP2 as the first car to come off the production line since the start of the country’s lockdown.
