The Ferrari F12berlinetta is one of the finest driving machines the world has ever seen. Every subtle detail of the F12berlinetta has been methodically designed. To construct the F12berlinetta, Ferrari utilized over twelve different types of alloys to produce one of the lightest and most rigid vehicles to ever wear the Prancing Horse badge. The Ferrari F12 replaces the Ferrari 599 model in the lineup.
The F12berlinetta was the most aerodynamic series-production Ferrari and highest-performance front-engine naturally aspirated 6.3L V12 Ferrari in the range at that time. With a maximum power output of 731 hp at 8,250 rpm and 508 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm, the F12berlinetta reaches a top speed of 211 mph. It even set a record at Ferrari’s Fiorano track, lapping the circuit in just one minute and twenty three seconds!
When the F12berlinetta’s key is placed inside the ignition and the bright red start button is pushed, the engine comes alive to produce and intoxicating soundtrack! Its direct-injection, naturally-aspirated V12 engine introduced many innovations, earned many awards, and hit many benchmarks while reducing fuel consumption by 30 percent. This incredible engine feeds power to the rear wheels through the racing-derived dual-clutch F1 transmission, which gives instantaneous gear shifts. This seven-speed dual clutch gearbox sends 100 percent of the vehicle’s power to its rear wheels, and is precisely tuned to amplify the engine’s response with lightning quick accuracy, which you’ll notice on the streets of Chicago or on the highway to St. Louis.
The F12berlinetta is loaded with other performance-enhancing features. The highly evolved transaxle delivers extreme performance and driving involvement, while the advanced structural integrity of the body helps control the engines power to deliver improved handling abilities. Outfitted with a Ferrari hallmark double-wishbone front and a multi-link rear suspension with active dampening, this Italian-made work of automotive art provides handling capabilities that are among the finest of any vehicle ever produced in the world. Braking is by Brembo with third-generation carbon-ceramic brakes, six-piston front and four-piston rear, and monobloc aluminum calipers.
Pininfarina and the Ferrari Style Center exceeded expectations with brilliant style and balanced proportions, making the F12 shorter, lower and narrower than its 599 predecessor. The Ferrari F12berlinetta features a sculpted body with just as much emphasis on visual appeal as on performance. The F12berlinetta employs a modern, functional reinterpretation of the Kamm tail seamlessly integrating the two vertical fences of the rear diffuser. The resulting original T-shape also incorporates two full-LED circular tail-lights and the F1-inspired rear fog light. Dramatic curves and deep valleys cover nearly every inch of the F12berlinetta’s exterior, along with methodically placed air dams and vents to increase the engine’s breathing ability and keep the wheels firmly planted to the pavement. Every angle and aspect of the Ferrari F12berlinetta evokes raw emotion.
The drama doesn’t just end with the look and performance of the Ferrari F12berlinetta — the interior cabin is both sporty and comfortable. The smell of fine Italian leather engulfs the cabin while the eyes and touch are met with some of the finest materials known to the automotive world. Highly supportive and contoured leather-wrapped seats place the driver in the perfect position for the road ahead. The headrest is fully integrated into the backrest, giving the seats a very modern, comfortable track-inspired feel.
It’s not just about ambience, though — the F12 is loaded with tech features. The dashboard’s right-hand satellite pod houses controls for audio, bluetooth, navigation, and voice activation with the corresponding TFT screen which displays all the infotainment information. Smartphones can connect to the internet, listen to web radio and podcasts, and download apps.
The F12 makes a great use of every inch of interior volume through its intuitive design, so even the tallest drivers can find head, leg, and shoulder comfort. Drivers can reach all controls with their hands positioned on the steering wheel. The central bridge incorporates the F1 gearbox and hazard warning light buttons, and is one of the cabin’s signature elements. An adjustable armrest opens to a hidden storage compartment housing a USB port. For drivers planning a longer journey, the rear of the cockpit features an upholstered bench with leather luggage straps to hold bags and can expand to 17.7 cubic feet by lowering the bench panel.
Every aspect of the cabin has been crafted for all driving needs, whether tearing up the track or enjoying the roadways around Indianapolis.
