Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, 2012
Once Ferrari officially debuted the replacement 599, which had been dubbed the F620 GT, we all knew that the vehicle had certainly been worth the wait. The F12berlinetta was designed by the Ferrari Styling Center in cooperation with Pininfarina and is the most powerful high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched. It is said to be "a perfect balance of uncompromising aerodynamics with harmonious proportions interpreting the typical elements of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars in an original and innovative way.
Lightweight, brilliant like ever before. Powerful, beyond imagination. “I’m feisty and I know it!” says the Berlinetta as it grins back at us from yonder side of the screen waiting to scream out loud with all its 12-cylinders. Ferrari says the ride will clock 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds, and will touch a top a top speed of 340 km/h. The last V12 Ferrari came out with was 70kg heavier and clocked 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds. This emphasises on the fact that Ferrari is successfully made use of light-weight structural materials and drastically improved aerodynamics that help catapult the 6262 cc V-12 trick horse into mind-warping motion. The all-new space-frame chassis and bodyshell uses 12 different kinds of metal in the alloy, some of which have been used for the first time on a road car, resulting in a 20 percent increase in structural rigidity while reducing its weight to just 1525 kg. CO2 emissions of just 350 g/km, makes the F12 best in its class owing to an efficient engine, aerodynamics and tyres.
The price will start at €274,000 for the brand new car without any included taxes – the price may rise up to €369,589, including Ferrari’s optional HELE start-stop system.
