Leaked: Ferrari 599 GTB Hybrid shows up ahead of Geneva

This is the hybrid Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano! Although, we know little about this car, we can tell you that it uses a hybrid system derived from the KERS a.k.a. kinetic energy recovery system used by the F1 team in the 2009 season. European patents already showed that the Ferrari is working on a four-wheel drive hybrid drivetrain with electric motors powering the front wheels, while an Italian magazine reported that the car will use lithium batteries as well as an electric motor in order to cut the fuel requirements of the 599's V12 by 35 percent.

More details will be revealed next week at the Geneva Motor Show!
