Ferrari revealed its 2017 contender at its Maranello base this morning, prior the car’s first shakedown and filming run at the Fiorano test track.

Known as project 668 internally, the car has been given the type number SF70H, in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the Italian marque’s first car.

Following the departure of James Allison last year, the new design team has been led by chief technical officer Mattia Binotto. The new model will thus be a test of the ability of the staff that Allison left behind, the team having chosen not to headhunt a major name from outside.

The car features a dramatic shark fin and a small “T-wing,” as seen also on the Mercedes on Thursday.
