Ferrari will be bringing a facelifted version of the FF to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este historic vehicle event next month at Lake Como, Italy.

Test mules were spotted wearing an enlarged front grille and air intake last year. The teaser image above, from Motor Authority, hints at a new front fascia with restyled grille and headlights, plus new taillights and air intakes. There have been rumors about a carbon fibre roof and active aerodynamic parts.

The big changes are under the bonnet, according to Autocar. An increase in power is expected from the FF’s current 6,262 cc V12 engine, which produces 660 hp at 8,000 rpm and 683 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The UK mag says that today’s seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox could be replaced by a new eight-speed transmission, which would help reduce emissions. Also scheduled for an upgrade is the four-seater’s AWD system.

Updates to the Ferrari Four’s cabin could include an updated infotainment system, likely to be one seen in the California T with Google Play, plus new finishes and materials. There are also rumours that the FF facelift will also come in an entry-level variant with Ferrari’s twin-turbo V8 engine.

Today’s FF, a supercar with a unique format, was launched here by Naza Italia in August 2011.
