Ferrari F12berlinetta

Ultimate Raging Stallion

Introducing the fastest, most exciting Ferrari ever produced for the road: The F12berlinetta. The 6262cc 12-cylinder engine, combined with the exceptional 7 speed dual clutch transmission, will put you from rest to 100kph in an astonishing 3.1 seconds and send the adrenaline coursing through your veins like no other Ferrari.

Powertrain

Maximum power is 740CV for a specific output of 118CV per litre and 690 Nm of torque. 80 per cent of that torque figure is on tap from 2500 rpm, giving massive acceleration right the way up to the 8700 rpm red line.

Just like Ferrari's F1 engines, the V12 boasts very low levels of inertia to ensure that the engine revs rapidly. Development concentrated on a number of areas, including the compression ratio which has been increased to 13.5:1.

Architecture

No fewer than 12 different types of alloy have been used, including two new structural alloys. This has helped keep the car's weight down (50 kg has been saved on the body-in-white alone which equates to a saving of 90 kg if the previous chassis were re-engineered to meet crash legislation) and maximise the efficiency of its performance (torsional rigidity has been increased by 20 percent).

Aerodynamics

Research focused not only external air flows but internal ones too. The result is that the F12berlinetta is the most overall aerodynamically efficient car in the Ferrari range ever, a fact attested to by a figure of 1.12 (double that of the 599 GTB Fiorano). Downforce has been boosted by 76% (123 kg at 200 km/h) while drag has been significantly reduced too (the Cd is just 0.299).
