Performance and details

The new Ferrari F12berlinetta is powered by a 740hp (545kw) 65 degree, front,-mid mounted V12 engine.[1] The Ferrari F12berlinetta had been speculated to be named the 620 GT or F620 GT and is commonly mistaken as the F12 Berlinetta instead of the Ferrari F12berlinetta (note the lack of a space and the lower case).[3] [4] The F12berlinetta was also speculated to be powered by the Ferrari FF's 4WD system, however, the car shall be powered by a traditional rear wheel drive layout.

Performance of the Ferrari F12berlinetta is considered supercar territory, accelerating from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds, and 0-200km/h in 8.4 seconds. Maximum speed is purported to be over 340km/h (211mph).[1] The V12 engine will produce 80% of maximum torque from 2500rpm before peaking at 690Nm at 6000rpm.

At 1525kg with a lower centre of gravity and shorter wheelbase performance is significantly improved from it's predecessor. Weight was kept down by the design of a new spaceframe chassis and bodyshell that utilises 12 different alloy types and increases rigidity by 20 percent. [2] The engine sits ahead of the driver sending power to a dual-clutch automated transaxle behind the driver between the rear wheels, giving the Ferrari F12berlinetta a 46% front to 54% rear weight distribution. Aerodynamics have improved with a drag co-efficient of 0.299 resulting in 30% greater effeciency than the old 599 while achieving 76% greater downforce than the old 599.

Brakes are carbon ceramic with magnetically controlled suspension (SCM-E), traction control (F1-Trac), power management, stability control (ESP Premium) are all standard. Interior comforts have been considered with Frau leather trim, carbon fiber and metal accents, increased luggage space and larger boot space.

Pricing is yet to be announced.

New Technology

Ferrari's 'Aero bridge' on the bonnet results in greater airflow around the car while also generating downforce. Active shutter technology on the brake cooling vent allows the vents to operate only when the brakes are in use at high temperatures. This reduces overall drag during the majority of driving.

Track times

The Ferrari F12berlinetta has been clocked around the Fiorano test track in 1 minute 23 seconds, the fastest lap time of a road going Ferrari. [5]
