488 test mule

Ferrari working on a new hybrid is no novel news as a 488 mule was spotted testing in Europe, but the debut set for later this month came as a complete surprise. For instance, the test mule spotted is based on a 488, but the upcoming supercar according to Ferrari will be a top-of-the-line hybrid with supercar performance and true beauty. The only feasible explanation is that the brand is keeping the vehicle design a secret, explaining the 488 mule story.
