A decade has passed since Ferrari launched the eponymous LaFerrari hybrid hypercar, but at long last its successor is on its way. Ferrari bosses confirmed as much last year, but a new spy video by YouTuber Varryx offers a first glimpse of what the car, codenamed F250, will look like.

It’s heavily-wrapped in camouflage, although there’s no hiding the prototype’s gigantic rear wing. Compared to its recent descendants like the Enzo and LaFerrari it’s an aggressive design, engineered to work aerodynamic wonders on the track. Huge intakes at the nose and vents in the hood channel air to keep the front wheels glued to the ground, while that rear spoiler and enormous diffuser creates a ton of downforce. The high voltage warning stickers that adorn this test mule confirm that it will run a hybrid powertrain, which is most likely an even higher-performance version of the 986bhp V8 plus battery setup in the SF90 Stradale.

The SF90 Stradale, in case you’d missed it, was a regular production Ferrari, rather than a limited-numbers model, and pack not one, not two but three electric motors into its powertrain, together with a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 and an eight-speed dual clutch transmission. With two of those electric motors driving the front wheels, you have a four-wheel drive hypercar than can dash from standstill to 60mph in as little as 2.5 seconds. You can read a full review of the SF90 right here.
