No problem for me if it sounds like this

Seem a lot more plausible than all the hype by other member who where quoting 650-1M
Yes it remains a pleasant sound but far from a V12 (From my point of view).
Yes, but I doubt it's for "Big Brother", no more for "Little Brother".
I think BB is getting a 2.9 litres V6 with twin turbochargers for 620 horsepower plus the rest or the power added by hybrid assist.
They are going V6 to keep building V8 motors for the other models without interruption!
I was at the factory yesterday.
The car drove past me in full black camo BUT I can tell you this :
It’s bigger than a 488/Pista both in width and length and has real road presence.
Although when It drove past me it was doing under 25kph is sounded load and deep.At low speed better than a Pista.
This is what I saw yesterday....

The Big Brother is aV8. The little brother is a V6. This has been the consistent info from dealer.
BTW anyone notice you can see 4 taillights and basically part of the rear of the car on the invitation graphic. ..??
Last year Marchionne was quoted saying: "A hybrid V8 is coming for 2019, test mules are around now" and we now know he was talking about the BB (F173). V6 powertrain will probably debut in the new variant of the Portofino, a car that certainly doesn't need 1000CV.
Speaking of tail lights, I think they might look like this:

Looks kind of like the previously referenced “spaceship” I guess.
These are indeed a possibility, we will see that very soon but personally I prefer the feel of a V8.
How do you think this Ferrari will weigh with all this hybridization?
Wow, I love it!
Possibly 3400 pounds.
Perhaps the English journalists have it wrong then saying a V6 is next.
Mr Leiters, stated to a different journalist "this platform will be reserved for a hybrid V8 that will sit above the F8", so all is well.
Except maybe only four tail lights and not six for the flagship model...
yes the dealer but where is ferr9000 when you need him! How many times do you have to go back to your tailor for a fitting??????
1500 Kg for 1000 Hp it gives me a good basis, but I'm afraid it will be heavier.
I also think that this Ferrari will really have a technological spirit.
Anyway, I'm very interested in her.
Even ferr9000 needs to sleep once in a while.
Everyone's interested in her
1000 hp but 1800 kgs with fluids ( real life ),
Guess the torque vectoring will give this car amazing performance but the question mark is :
How the driver will interact with this car ?
Exactly what I’ve been told by dealer in Switzerland

Very interesting, link from BarryK - Grazie
With a steering wheel, paddles and two pedals.
PS: According to Quattroruote, in testing conditions, the 812's weight is about 1850KG, but it's certainly not a pig.....
Very funny ,
I'm just hoping Ferrari won't produce a drag race queen to satisfy the new youtuber generation,
I' m confident they won't ..
I'm confident too because Ferrari has never been interested in dragsters. If, as Galliera as stated, this car has a higher performance level compared to the LaF, then I expect it to be quite capable around corners too. Can't wait for the reveal and the first hands-on reviews.
I really like the 488 sound for its 'rolling thunder' buzz at low RPMs, so an even deeper hum is great news (for me, at least).
A deep sound at low rpms is what you often get with turbo engines. To me the more important question is if the car is able to generate a nice high pitched sound at high revs.
