Ferrari F12 Berlinetta unveiled: Fastest Ferrari to date
Waiting for a supercar to be revealed is always like watching a strip show. We have been waiting for it since morning when we saw Ferrari’s official website reminding their fans that the new Ferrari will make its debut at 01:00 pm CET. And now, the cover is removed from the car, the cloths are off the strippers! This is it, this is the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta that will replace the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.
You probably have seen this before through some leaked photo in the internet. But you are not sure whether the previous photos are real, and we can tell you what you are seeing is real! Previously many car enthusiasts thought it is going to be named F620 GT but it turned out as F12 Berlinetta. The new Prancing Horse features a 6.3-liter 65-degree V12 engine that pumps a maximum of 740 CV at 8500 rpm and 690 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. The wheelbase is shorter than the 599. Thanks to the new aluminium-intensive spaceframe, the weight of the F12 is 3,362lbs which is lighter than the aging 599.
For anyone who can’t take roller coaster, don’t buy this car because you will not enjoy the 3.1 seconds it takes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph). Coming just days before the Geneva Motor Show, the F12 boost a bloody fast top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph), making it the fastest Ferrari ever built. It also takes a mere 8.5 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph). Besides, the F12 Berlinetta has a lower and more rearward center of gravity with a redesigned suspension and gearbox. With all these reasons, this supercar goes very fast, and really REALLY fast.
