Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Finally Unveiled

Published

on

As promised, a new Ferrari model was unveiled to the general public today.

Dubbed the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (not the F620 GT as other sources stated), it’s the most powerful road car that Ferrari has ever built.

  • 740 HP / 509 lb-ft of torque
  • 1525kg (3360 lbs)
  • 0-62 mph in just 3.1 seconds
  • 0-104 mph in 8.5 seconds
  • Fiorano lap time of 1 minute 23 seconds (Other Fiorano lap times for comparison: Ferrari Enzo – 1:25 / Ferrari 599 GTO – 1:24)

The F12 berlinetta will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show from March 8-18, and we’re looking forward to seeing this automobile in the flesh.

    Ok, from a Non-Car guy…looks like an old corvette, doesn’t it?

      In my opinion, no. If anything, I see some similarities with the current Ferrari FF and Ferrari 599(which this above vehicle is replacing).

      The F12 Berlinetta comes standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. You can drive this vehicle as an automatic if you wish, or with the flick of a switch you can shift manually via the paddle shifters from behind the steering wheel. There is no clutch pedal. Transmissions such as this are usually referred to as “F1 Style” or “F1 Transmissions”, but it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

      With the advances in technology and safety, it’s looking doubtful that Ferrari will release a vehicle with a traditional 6spd manual transmission as standard production.

    Thanks Francesco!
