The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is Ferrari’s replacement for the 599 GTB, and the company threw everything at it to ensure it is vastly quicker than its seminal predecessor, but also that it’s more enjoyable at low speeds. It claimed to be both GT and supercar, mixing front-engined packaging and civility with exotic, F1-inspired dynamic ability. Considerably smaller, 70kg lighter at 1525kg, it also produces more downforce and has a much lower centre-of-gravity. Prices started from £239,352.
The V12 is similar in size to Ferrari FF's engine but significantly re-engineered to produce more power, rev higher and to ensure much quicker throttle response. It produces an almost unbelievable 730bhp at 8250rpm (it revs to 8700rpm) and 509lb ft at 6000rpm. All that is transmitted via a 7-speed dual clutch transaxle and Ferrari’s E-Diff – the 599 made do with a single clutch and a normal mechanical limited slip differential. The results are startling: 0-62mph in 3.1-seconds, 0-124mph in 8.5-seconds and a top speed of over 211mph. Those acceleration figures put it ahead of a McLaren F1. Around Fiorano it’s faster than an Enzo or even the ultra-extreme 599 GTO.
