    Less than 2 weeks to go before the reveal of a barchetta called the 812 Monza ?
    (Possibly a different name after Sunday's disappontment !!!)

    Just so I'm not getting it wrong... The rumored Monza is the topless special edition, yes?

    What's the rumored name of the rumored TDF / GTO replacement?

    There is a Opel Monza, so I doubt they take the risk after the issues with the F150.

    Correct according to well informed info on this site.
    Suggested names for tdf replacement include 812 Mille Miglia (more likely MM) and Daytona.

    Until today it doesn't exist anything about a GTO/TDF replacement. Not even a project code.

    Thanks.Hope it does materialise.
    I think tdf owners were told no 812 version of the tdf would be made but I think we all assumed that was the normal "no SUV","No plans to do a special version of the mid engined V8" etc

    Was this really Ferrari's official statement to F12 TDF buyers? They would do that for really limited models (like the F60) but IMO no one was going to give up an F12 TDF based on follow-on configurations. Too hard to get in the first place as it was being (wrongly) referred to as the F12 GTO early on which ticked off the 599 owners immensely.

    Not for one moment claiming it was official but my recollection is that this was reported as being the impression given to those lucky enough to have been allocated a tdf.

    I've always had a soft spot for the mainly forgotten 1992 Maserati Barchetta.

    Understood.

    Thank you both!

    I'll start poking my dealer on the 812 MM or Daytona. It's at least helpful to be able to effectively differentiate between the GTO/TDF replacement (which I am extremely interested in) and the upcoming Monza (which I'm not interested in).

    Anyone interested in the 812 MM should Google 2015 Sbarro Miglia

    Without question it will be dramatically better looking. By a wide margin! Manzoni and his team are hitting it out of the park and I think they are going to deliver something very special here. The one I referenced was just to give a visual example of the anticipated general idea of this car in a broad conceptual sense.

    And I was, of course, referring to the anticipated modern version of a speedster hinted at in the 'Icona Ferrari' teaser. Some are referring to that as the 812 Monza and others are referring to it as the 812 MM. Irrespective of what it is ultimately called, as an homage to the great historic front engined V-12 race cars like the 250 Testa Rossa, and also quite possibly the last unassisted Ferrari V-12, this could end up being one of the most significant Ferraris of all time.

    An Italian journalist said that one of the incoming models will probably carry an hommage to Sergio Marchionne in the name.

    Not sure. Internal and external ...? The actual debut of the car is very late this year is what I’ve been told.
