2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

 

Even though Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has been launched in the market for a while, there are still more to come from Ferrari. F12 Berlinetta is the latest super car model and it replaces the 599 GTB Fiorano which has been in the market for some time. F12 Berlinetta comes in a slightly shorter, lower and narrower than the 599 GTB Fiorano.

F12 Berlinetta was powered by a V12 with 740 HP which is 120 HP more than the previous 599 GTB Fiorano. The increase in power is accompanied with a 30% decrease in fuel consumption. It takes F12 Berlinetta only 3.1 seconds to run from 0 to 60 miles per hour, while top speed goes up to over 211 miles per hour.

F12 Berlinetta comes with many factory options which include a High Emotion Low Emissions package (with stop/start), carbon-fibre steering wheel with integrated LED rev counter, a 1,280 watt JBL Professional sound system, and a performance screen in front of passengers that displays o betrays the driver’s speed, round per minute (rpm) and gear choices.

The car weighs only 70 kilograms which is of course less than the 599 GTB Fiorano. However, the power-to-weight ratio which is a key figure in any performance machine increases by 25 per cent. This still puts F12 Berlinetta amongst the most powerful cars in the world.

Recently Ferrari has officially announced the selling price of the F12 Berlinetta at US 348,000. Ferrari has continued along the path of restrained aggressiveness, it avoids big spoiler or the massive intakes for subtler to make the body look slimmer. Ferrari certainly still focuses on its performance. Most notable at the front of the car is a two-sheet-metal scallops in the hood that lead air under a bridge in the bodywork to behind the front fender to provide more down force. It is what Ferrari calls the F12’s Aero Bridge.

These and other aero benefits, for example, the brake vents that only open when the brakes are hot, are the evidences that while beauty is important to Ferrari, it is the F12 Berlinetta’s performance that made it the leading super car in the market.
