Several images of Ferrariís upcoming 599 Hybrid concept have leaked online ahead of the carís official debut at the Geneva Auto Show next week. The photos appear to be snapped at the Italian automakerís stand at the Geneva Show, where the car is sitting in preparation for its Tuesday unveiling.
Little is still known about the hybrid exotic, although it is expected to use a version of Ferrariís F1-derived Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) setup, using power generated under braking to deliver an extra boost of power, available to the driver via a steering wheel button.
It is not clear if Ferrari intends that the hybrid system work to save fuel as well, but rumors have suggested that it could help power the car at low speeds and when combined with an automatic start/stop system could drastically reduce the vehicleís fuel consumption.
