Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Revealed



Quote:
The latest and the the greatest Ferrari yet, the F12 Berlinetta has been revealed ahead of its official world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

The successor to the 599 and rumored to be called the 620 GT, the F12 Berlinetta is the most powerful Ferrari road car ever with a a 6.3-liter V12 engine making 740 hp at 8500 rpm and 509 lb-ft of torque, 80 percent of which is available at just 2500 rpm. Mated to a dual-clutch transmission, the car can hit 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds and hit 124 mph in just 8.5 seconds. Plus, it's the fastest road going F-car around the Fiorano circuit, with a lap time of 123.

Despite the massive performance increase, Ferrari claims the new V12 engine will be 30 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing 6.0-liter V12 in the 599.

Based on an all new aluminum chassis that is 20 percent stiffer than the outgoing unit, it weighs 154 lbs less than the outgoing car. Shorter in length, many of the interior components, from the dash to the seats, have been lowered in the chassis, as has the engine.

The aerodynamics of the body also play a major role in the car's performance with downforce improved b 76 percent, to deliver 271 lbs of downforce at 124 mph, while the coefficient of drag has been reduced to just 0.299 cd. The car's swoopy lines are more than just nice to look at, they play a major role, with an "Aero Bridge" on the hood that sends air to the side of the car, rather than over the top, to cut drag.

Look for more on the Ferrari F12 with AutoGuide's Geneva Motor Show coverage starting March 6th.

I'm sure the price will be astronomical. Hopefully the new Viper will be a less expensive alternative with equal or better performance and looks.

Think it looks cool, but judging from the rise in msrp other sports cars/exotics have had... can just imagine what this one will cost now.

It looks like the California raped the 599. Boring and redundant styling. I like the 458, I like the FF. I don't know what the hell they were thinking with this turd. Of course it's a Ferrari so people will buy it regardless. The only thing I'm impressed with is the motor.

I'm growing tired of every manufacturer trying to make all of their models look similar.

Com'on ..... this looks way better then the butt fucked Panamera/BMW M Coupe hatch FF . The proportions of that car and rear end make it look fuckin hunchbacked like the Panamera.

458 is killer though, only Ferrari I've liked in years.
