Ferrari EV Mule Breaks Cover in Maranello

SEMA News sources recently caught Ferrari testing its rumored first electric sports car disguised with a Maserati Levante body and a fake, quad-pipe exhaust. Yellow stickers on the sides revealed that the car is powered by an electric motor, not a combustion engine.

This Ferrari EV mule combines a Maserati Levante body with Ferrari Roma headlights and features quad-pipe exhausts, similar to those seen on previous Ferrari test vehicles. The newly designed wheels also seem optimized for aerodynamics, a common feature in electric vehicles (EVs). The crossover body hints that Ferrari's upcoming EV might have a raised-body design.

Details about the upcoming electric Ferrari are scarce, including its name. However, Ferrari has prepared for its arrival with a dedicated production line in Maranello, Italy, north of its current campus. Ferrari plans to manufacture all the necessary electric components in-house, such as high-voltage batteries, electric motors and axles, according to reports.

Audi RS6 E-Tron Spotted Testing

With its final gas-powered car scheduled to debut in 2026, Audi and its Audi Sport division are currently developing its new S- and RS-badged Audi vehicles.

New images from SEMA News sources show what is thought to be the all-electric RS6, formerly known as the RS6 E-Tron based on the upcoming A6 EV. The images reveal details like flared wheel arches and an uprated brake package with drilled brake discs, distinguishing the spotted model from previous A6 prototypes.

An A6 concept from 2021 was powered by a 100kWh battery and dual-motor powertrain producing 469 hp. Output for the RS6 is expected to match the 621 hp available in the current gas-powered RS6 Avant, according to insiders.

Genesis GV60 Prototype Hints at Visual Updates

Genesis is preparing an updated version of its GV60, according to new images shared with SEMA News.

Although heavily disguised, the spotted GV60 prototype provided a glimpse at changes to the new model, including a larger, 84kWh battery, tech upgrades, redesigned bumpers, a new light signature and more.

The black camo reveals a few details, such as the sensor island and a honeycomb grille in the lower section of the front bumper. The front bumper's side air intakes will adopt a more conventional look.

The headlights remain mostly unchanged, but the upper and lower sections now have six and seven modules instead of five. Slight tweaks are also visible at the rear, with the rear spoiler incorporating a modified light strip.

The facelifted models are expected to adopt Hyundai's next-generation infotainment system, which includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and supports over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

Additionally, the larger battery pack will improve the range beyond the current estimate of 292 miles for the RWD model. The GV60 will also incorporate the Active Air Skirt (AAS) system, which consists of two slats that extend in front of the wheels to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The slats deploy at speeds above 50 mph and retract when the speed drops below 43 mph. Tests have shown that the AAS can reduce drag by up to 2.8% on a test vehicle.

The updated GV60 is expected to debut in time for the '25 model year.
