A Ferrari 599 hybrid prototype will be shown at next month's Geneva motor show.
The car is being shown to demonstrate Ferrari's committment to hybrid technology, and a Ferrari spokesman has stressed that it will show only one potential form of hybrid technology that Ferrari is evaluating.
He added that it is far from certain that the 599 will be the first Ferrari to be available with hybrid tech.
Unconfirmed reports in the Italian media suggest the system will use lithium batteries and an electric motor to cut fuel consumption by as much as 35 per cent over the standard 599s.
No other information was revealed by Ferrari.
