We have found it strange that ever since the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was introduced to the world, at the 2012 Geneva Auto show, there has been no news or sightings of the prancing pony. Well fortunately that has all changed as we have come across the first video evidence that proves that the car still exists.
If you have forgotten about the F12 Berlinetta’s performance number we can’t blame you as we had to re-look them up as well. Like the 599 that it replaces it will have a naturally aspirated V12 bomb under the hood that was first debuted in the FF. Unlike the FF the F12 will see a bump in power by approximately 80hp, allowing the 6.3-liter V12 to produce 730hp and 510lb-ft of torque, with a 8700rpm redline.
The accumulation of all of these extra horses allow the Berlinetta to turn the 0-100km/h trick in just 3.1 seconds and can accelerate from a standstill to 200km/h in just 8.5 seconds. These are impressive numbers and prove that the car will be a worthy competitor to the Lamborghini Aventador. Ferrari is claiming that the new F12 Berlinetta has top speed of over 211 mph and attributes the cars balanced feel at these high speeds to a slight tweaking of the cars weight distribution. The F12 now receives a 46/54 thanks to a new transaxle F1 style dual-clutch gearbox and rear suspension redesign that reduced weight and included space saving techniques to also improve the car’s trunk volume.
After watching the video one fact that we can confirm is that the F12 Berlinetta knows how to make both the engine and the tires scream as it barrels around the track. If you don’t believe us then click the link below and turn up your speakers.
